3 High Protein Breakfasts You Can Make For On The Go

We all want to start the day off right and have something in us before getting going with the day but there isn’t always time.

All too often breakfast will take a back seat for those few extra minutes in bed as well as whatever other obstacles might get in your way leaving the house, the simple act of preparing some high protein eggs or oatmeal make it seem like the end of the world but you can prepare these three meals the night before so you are well prepared.

The best bit about all three of these apart from the healthy ingredients and protein is their convenience and portability, not that you would eat them in traffic or anything but you could easily eat them at a desk at work with no mess or a big pile of dishes to clean, no more excuses.

Oats are delicious and can be prepared the night before ready for work.

1) Overnight Oatmeal

A beautiful combo of oats, low-fat protein and your favorite fruit and healthy fat toppings is a great way to start the day with loads of energy. You don’t need to sit there waiting for the water to boil or eat all the sugar that usually comes in instant oatmeal packets.

This macro-friendly meal can be changed to suit your goals and is more than up to the task of providing you with lots of energy and a delicious meal too. If you like the taste of coffee and need caffeine before you start your day, brew some coffee during the prep period and add in place of milk.
