Here’s another easy high protein breakfast recipe that you can use if you’re someone that has to adhere to a low FODMAP diet with high protein. Plantains are also pretty cheap and can be relatively easy to get anywhere. This recipe is easy to make in bulk, and freeze, or add various toppings and ingredients to. My favorite way to do it is with goji berries and bee pollen.
One of my favorite protein powders is Vega. There are a ton of flavors that you can add to your waffles to create more of a ‘flavored’ waffle, and increase the protein serving per waffle. You could also add bananas, chocolate chips, and more.
Fuel Your Body with a High Protein Breakfast
You could certainly add more protein to it through nutritional yeast, protein power, and more. Goji berries have a surprising amount of protein in them (~0.8g per 1 Tbs) for a fruit. Bee pollen has about 1.3g of protein per teaspoon too! I like to add things like chocolate protein powder for a more fun flavor, plus more protein.
An easy high protein breakfast recipe is so key! Starting your day out with protein or a workout with protein supplies your body with the fuel it needs to move. Most people think having protein after you work out will support building muscle, it’s actually the reverse.
