Breakfast gives you necessary energy which is essential to start the day and by adding extra protein you will keep your appetite in check.

A high-protein breakfast has a great decrease in hunger-stimulating hormones in comparison to a breakfast which is high in carbohydrate.

To start the morning right, try some protein-packed breakfast recipes which are created by recognized nutritionists.

1. Scrambled eggs and cheese

Eggs and cheese are a great combination and together they may help you fight osteoporosis. The reason for this lies in the fact that cheese is easily absorbed into our bodies with the vitamin D-rich eggs in addition. This requires fresh goat cheese and some chives snipped on top. All should be done in 15 minutes.

2. Scrambled eggs and chilies

These spicy eggs cook up in 4 minutes and they pack around 20 grams of protein and 6 grams of carbs. The hot chilies are natural mood boosters and fat burners. You can choose how much eggs you want if you’re watching your cholesterol and saturated fat.

3. Goat cheese, fresh omelet, and sun-dried tomato

This veggie-filled omelet packs protein, calcium, and antioxidants. Use fat-free cheese and egg substitute if you want a lower-cholesterol version.

4. Crostini with poached egg, creamy mustard sauce and spinach

The key of making perfect poached eggs is low heat, low-fat sour cream, and mustard which transform rich sauce into a low-fat, flavorful version. In order to kick up the fiber in the crostini use whole grain bread.

5. Frittata with mixed greens and ricotta

Healthy fats, protein, and greens make this low-calorie frittata as healthy as it’s delicious. Leafy greens such as kale, Swiss chard, or mustard greens have around 30 calories per serving and they are among the healthiest foods you can find, with a lot of vitamins, K, C, and A, plus fiber. Also, use a lot of fresh herbs, because they have a healthy dose of antioxidants and a good flavor.

6. Jalapeno and bacon egg sandwich

This meaty, crispy breakfast sandwich requires organic eggs, reduced-fat cheese, a whole-grain English muffin, and a jalapeno pepper, which is a great metabolism booster. High-protein and low-fat turkey bacon will keep you full and satisfied all day.

7. Smoked-salmon frittatas

This is one of the healthiest and most delicious recipes. Each frittata has 17 grams of protein, heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and almost no carbs. It takes 30 minutes to cook them up.

8. Asparagus with parmesan and poached eggs

Asparagus, parmesan, and poached eggs make this recipe, which is light enough to enjoy in it anytime you want. A seasonal spring veggie, asparagus, is full of folic acid, which keeps your cardiovascular system healthy, and vitamin K. With 18 grams of protein, you will have a lot of energy for all day.
