5 Protein-Packed Recipes for Quick, Easy Breakfast Gains

5 Protein-Packed Recipes for Quick, Easy Breakfast Gains

When the notion of meal prepping comes to mind we automatically think of preparing our lunches and dinners to eat for the week so we can stay on track with our nutrition goals. However, the thought of preparing your breakfast for the next day or the entire week ahead of time rarely crosses our mind.

Those rushed mornings when you forgot to set the alarm or hit the snooze one too many times can lead you to fueling your body with only your morning coffee or the box of donuts and pastries sitting in the office kitchen. By preparing ahead of time for a busy morning you can avoid starting your day with poor nutritional decisions.

Some of you may perform intermittent fasting and can function without a hearty, protein-packed breakfast. But, many of us feel weak and need to get some calories, carbohydrates, and protein into our system before we start our workday or crush an early morning workout.

These 5 protein-packed breakfasts are easy to prepare the night before, will give you an extra 10-15 minutes of sleep in the morning, and provide a healthy, macronutrient-packed meal for the individual who's always on the go.

Brently Rousset demonstrates how to make a quick, easy and gains-inducing breakfast in a cup.
