Breakfast can be so tricky! It’s such a busy time of day. Meal prep for breakfast can really save you time.

All you need is a collection of easy, delicious and nutritious high protein breakfast recipes that keep well.

There is a ton of research that tells us eating a high protein breakfast can really help us get set for success for the rest of the day’s meals. 

Studies show that eating a high protein breakfast can:

  • reduce daily hunger
  • increase daily fullness
  • reduced daily ghrelin and increased daily peptide YY concentrations (a fancy way of saying that it lowers hunger-causing hormones and increases fullness hormones — read more about hormones and eating).
  • reduces evening snacking of high-fat foods (source)

Savory Meal Prep For Breakfast

Veggie Egg Bake Casserole is the perfect way to get lots and lots of protein plus a bunch of veggies at breakfast. Add whatever veggies you have on hand. I love to add in sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, goat cheese, baby spinach, zucchini, bell peppers… you get the idea.

Healthy Egg Bake With Veggies

Boiled Eggs. Classic. Simple. Easy. Combine with some fruit or toast or add them to some steamed asparagus and sliced tomatoes and you’re good to go. 

Boiled eggs last a week in the fridge. Making them in the Instant Pot is the easiest, most fool proof method yet.

You can also turn those eggs into a healthy version of Egg Salad using greek yogurt in place of some of the mayo. I love to serve it on a bed of baby spinach or in a lettuce wedge or with with an english muffin.

These all look so good. I have never really put thought into having protein in my breakfast, or my diet at all. I will try some of these options.
