It really is true what they say – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Waking up and having a breakfast that is high in protein for satiety and MPS (read more on that here), includes fruit for antioxidants and nutrients, and healthy fats for optimal vitamin absorption is the best way to start your day. I’m personally a major fan of smoothies at breakfast time, but there are so many breakfast options that will set you up for success. Sharing my top 5 below, enjoy!

High-Protein Blender Banana Oat Pancakes

They’re crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and literally taste like banana bread at breakfast time. I mean, does it get any better than that? The answer is yes, it does, because there’s almost no cleanup. So ideal. Click here for the high-protein pancake recipe.

High-Protein Baked Oats

I made these blackberry baked oats for a few years straight when I had early mornings during my dietetic internship. I always bring them back around in winter for breakfast time, and I love them so much they earned a spot in my NYT Best-Selling Cookbook. I also made a pumpkin version if you’re feeling cozy – get that recipe here.

Dippy eggs, marinara sauce, bell peppers and all the nourishing seasonings and toasty sourdough bread for dipping. And made in one pan? It’s the easiest and most delicious way to elevate your breakfast and brunch game, if you ask me. Click here for the recipe.
