Protein is a key nutrient for weight loss. In fact, starting your day with a high-protein breakfast may be one of the easiest and most effective ways to help lose weight! This is because protein can help curb your appetite and keep you from overeating throughout the day.

Do you include a good source of protein in most of your breakfasts? If you feel like you’re hungry most of the time throughout the day, try adding some more into your diet. There are so many ways you can do it, from eating animal or plant-based derived proteins or adding protein powder directly into smoothies or cooked goods. Most of the time we prefer the latter because using protein powder is a quick and easy way to ensure you are reaching your nutritional goals.

One of our favourite brands here at Genesis is X50 by Tribecca Health! X50 offers a variety of innovative products and mouth-watering protein powders alike. Their 100% Lean Whey Protein is one of our favourite high-quality proteins on the market and is super versatile amongst countless cooking recipes.

This e-book covers 10 High Protein Breakfast recipes to help you increase your morning protein intake. We are all about balance here at Genesis, so choose each recipe and balance your own nutrition goals accordingly! All recipes in this e-book contain a nice blend between low-fat recipes, allergen-friendly recipes, vegan-friendly recipes, and more… so we can all enjoy tasty high-protein breakfasts together!

 

Protein Punch Oatmeal

GLUTEN-FREE FRIENDLY | NUT-FREE | HIGH PROTEIN | LOW FAT

Time: 10 mins

Yield: 1

Oatmeal remains one of the easiest and most versatile breakfasts out there. It is healthy, cholesterol-lowering, and perfect for those cold mornings where you just want to remain snuggled in bed. At Genesis we love to give our oatmeal an extra punch by stirring in a scoop of protein powder. Protein helps rebuild damaged muscles and gives you stamina to keep going until lunchtime. For people aiming to lose weight or tone up, the oatmeal and protein powder combo is a great addition as it will curb cravings throughout the day and nourish your body with the right nutrients.

Turbocharge Your Mornings!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of water
  • ½ cup oatmeal of your choice (rolled oats, 1-minute oats, gluten-free oats… the sky's the limit!)
  • 1 scoop whey protein powder. We recommend 100% Lean Whey Protein by X50 in Cinnamon Donut flavour!
  • 1 banana
  • Toppings of your choice: blueberries, raspberries, nuts, peanut butter, etc.

 

Method:

  1. Boil 1 cup water on the stove or in the microwave. You may wish to add a few extra tablespoons of water to compensate for the thickening action of the protein powder.
  2. Pour a ½ cup of oatmeal into the boiling water. Lower heat and stir constantly for one minute.
  3. Add 1 scoop of protein powder to the cooked oatmeal just before eating. We recommend whey isolate protein powder as it mixes smoothly into oatmeal without clumping. Stir well to incorporate it through.
  4. Add one mashed or sliced banana to make it smoother and taste more blended through. Mix through and serve!
  5. Feel free to add any toppings like fruit, nuts or peanut butter.

Low Carb Chai Protein Waffles

GLUTEN-FREE | LOW FAT | LOW SUGAR | HIGH PROTEIN

Waffles are just pancakes with abs. Everyone knows that, right? Balanced with a healthy diet, this Low-Carb Chai Protein Waffle recipe may help you get abs too! With this recipe, you can customise it to any flavour you want depending on which protein powder you have on hand. We suggest adding cinnamon or pumpkin spice to give it a delicious chai taste! Feel free to get creative and post your own recipe variations with the hashtag #genesisrecipes

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop 100% Lean Whey Protein Powder in Vanilla Ice Cream flavour.
  • 1/4 cup egg whites from a carton + 2-3 tablespoons water for a thinner consistency
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon or pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp mashed banana or pumpkin puree from a can
  • Optional for serving: maple syrup, almond butter, fresh fruit

 

Method:

  1. Heat waffle iron.
  2. Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl, until batter is free from most clumps. Add as much water as needed to get a waffle batter consistency.
  3. Once waffle iron is heated, spray top and bottom of iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour batter over bottom iron. Depending on how thick your batter is, you may want to use the back of your spoon to spread the batter evenly over the iron.
  4. When waffle iron goes off, transfer waffle to a plate and top with your favourites. Serve immediately or store in a covered container to reheat and enjoy later.

 

Berry Banana Breakfast Bake

GLUTEN-FREE | LOW FAT

Time: 1 hour 15 mins

Imagine crawling out of bed to greet a hot, steamy bake on a weekend morning. We sure like this idea. If you have a bit more extra time to cook up a delicious bake during the week, you must try this recipe! This breakfast bake is a hearty, wholesome, and protein-packed way to start your day. Not to mention there’s some amazing nutrients present like fibre, potassium, vitamin C, and antioxidants (which boosts your immunity and helps you fight off the flu!). Steel-cut oats are used as opposed to regular oats because they are higher in fibre and protein, thus we highly recommend giving them a go!

Whoever said you couldn’t eat dessert for breakfast? If you’re a busy mum or worker, then you should definitely try this overnight oat recipe.
