The Challenge: Eat a high-protein source with breakfast.
How does this help my nutrition?
Many people go for a convenient breakfast option such as oatmeal, cereal, bagels, and breakfast bars on their way out the door. What do all of these foods have in common? They’re high in carbohydrates, empty calories and low in protein. Increasing your protein at breakfast will keep you satisfied longer than high carbohydrate breakfast foods. Here are high-protein sources that count for points this week:
- Greek yogurt with fruit
- Powdered peanut butter on toast or bagel thin
- Eggs (scrambled, over-easy, hard-boiled, etc.) with toast or English muffin
- Protein bar
- Fruit smoothie with low-fat milk and Greek yogurt
- Special K protein cereal with low-fat milk
- Cottage cheese with fruit
A Whole Wheat Breakfast Pizza recipe is available. If interested, please ask your trainer or Paige to provide it for you.
