How can I eat 25g protein for breakfast? Barbara G. [via Ask Questions]
It is great that you want to eat protein for breakfast. Eating protein for breakfast is one of the many healthy breakfast options out there, but what is even better is that this is a very easy question to answer. Eggs and bacon breakfast can give you 25 grams of protein, assuming you prepare enough eggs and or bacon, of course, but there are better options.
One cup of liquid egg whites contains 26 grams of protein. Liquid egg whites are not only low in calories, they are also very versatile since you can use them to make a variety of omelets. Protein powder is another option to consider. It is similar to egg whites in a sense that it too is low in calories and carbs, and can be used to make a wide variety of nutritious and tasty protein shakes.
If you need more ideas, take a look at this post. Do not be afraid to use your imagination and experiment with different combinations of foods. For example, canned sardines, tuna and salmon contain plenty of protein. One can of tuna or two cans of sardines plus some steamed vegetables is a good breakfast option that can easily give you 25 grams of protein. Or how about mixing one or two scoops of protein powder with some cottage cheese? I know some people do not like cottage cheese, but it is very nutritious, especially if you can find one that contains probiotics.
