My Go-To 5-Minute High Protein Breakfast

5 Minute High Protein Breakfast - low carb and super filling!

I love breakfast foods, but I also love my sleep.

If the decision is between 15 minutes of breakfast or 15 of sleep, it’s usually a pretty done deal that I’ll go for the latter. My bed is just so warm and cosy that not much stands a chance against it, so I’ll usually be the one dashing out the door, water bottle in one hand and a packed breakfast in the other.

That’s why I love the ease of this high protein breakfast, as all-in-all it takes about 5 minutes to make, is high in protein and healthy fats, and just keeps me feeling satisfied until lunch. If you’re extra pressed for time, you can always make it in the morning and pack it in a tupperware to have at work. Chances are the eggs will probably still be warm when you eat it!

Another reason I love this, besides it’s convenience and speed (and minimal washing up), is because it’s important for me to start my day with a high protein breakfast instead of a purely carb-y one. Nothing wrong with carbs, I do love them, but if I haven’t really workout out in the morning or done something more chilled out like yoga, then I focus on protein and fats with a smaller dose of carbs as it’s what makes my body happier and keeps me from reaching for that pick-me-up snack before lunchtime.

Also, we all know eggs and avocado is a pretty fail-proof combination! Just head to Pinterest for eggs and avocado and you’ll be flooded with ideas.
