5 Nutritious High Protein Breakfast Ideas


Don’t be restricted by typical breakfast foods such as cereal, toast, bagels, croissants etc.

Anything goes for breakfast.

In fact, savoury breakfasts are usually the best kind… but if that isn’t for you, the key is to make sure that there is adequate protein in your meal to keep your blood sugar balanced throughout the day.


  1. Eggs – any way. Poached, boiled, scrambled, omelette. Mixing them with a low fat cottage cheese increases the protein content. Serve with a least one portion of vegetables. Extra protein can be included by added smoked salmon or a good quality deli meat
  2. High protein yoghurt such as plain Greek or Skyr yoghurt with collagen or vanilla protein powder, low-sugar fruit such as berries, kiwi or plums and a tablespoon of flax and hemp seeds
  3. Smoothies with low sugar fruit, a portion of veggies and a good quality protein powder. Read this about how to make a healthy smoothie. An example is this Creamy Blueberry Smoothie. You could make up freezer bags with the ingredients and store (in the freezer) until needed so that all you have to do blend
  4. Chia seed pudding breakfast  This can be made with different fruits such as berries, apple, pear, pomegranate or cherries. Several portions of this could be made in advance and stored in the fridge.
  5. Dinner leftovers for breakfast
