What’s the key to a filling breakfast that won’t leave you scrambling for a mid-morning snack? Protein! Having a source of protein at breakfast helps to keep us fuller longer throughout the day. The majority of us tend to eat most of our protein at dinner time, which can leave breakfast low on this important nutrient.
For a protein-packed breakfast, wake up to the natural goodness of eggs! Two eggs contain a whopping 13 grams of high-quality protein, along with other important nutrients like vitamins A, D, and E, iron, folate, zinc and choline. Balance your breakfast out with whole grains, fruit and vegetables. We’ve got 5 delicious egg recipes to help you start your morning off right.
