Healthy and delicious high protein recipes that are fast and tasty – No more excuses
On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 5 quick breakfast ideas that are super healthy and perfect for those mornings when you are short on time.
If you’ve been watching our Live Lean TV YouTube channel, you know I promote consuming a high quality, protein filled breakfast.
I know, I hear the excuses already, “I don’t have time to cook”, or “I’m not hungry in the morning”.
Well the first excuse about not having enough time has been squashed.
As you will see in this post, some of these healthy breakfast recipes take less than 5 minutes to prepare.
This is important because one of the reasons why so many people grab the fattening box of cereal, is because they think it’s the only fast breakfast option.
Unfortunately, even those breakfast cereals may have healthy claims on the box, they may actually be causing your blood sugar levels to go on a roller coaster ride.
These quick blood sugar spikes not only cause your energy crashes, they may also create hormonal imbalances, which can lead to a fat storing environment in your body.
This is not the way you want to start your day.
These 5 quick breakfast ideas are the solution that makes the “I have no time” excuse, no longer valid.
Whether you eat breakfast first thing in the morning or follow an intermittent fasting approach, and “break the fast” later in the day, the first meal of the day should be comprised of protein, healthy fat, and fiber.
If you don’t follow intermittent fasting, but you just aren’t hungry in the morning, here’s the deal.
I also went through a phase where I was never hungry in the morning.
If this is the case, you must train your body to eat, even when you don’t feel like it.
Experts say it takes 66 days to create a habit.
This is true with your body as well.
Start with small portions, be consistent with it every day, and eventually you will program your body to crave breakfast in the morning.
Trust me, it worked for me, and it can work for you.
To perform at your best, you need fuel your body with the best nutrients.
Each of these 5 breakfast ideas meet those requirements.
5 Quick Breakfast Ideas
In a mixing bowl add 4 whole eggs.
Slice up a handful of spinach and add it to the mixing bowl with the eggs.
Add a dash of sea salt and ground black pepper and scramble everything together.
Coat 4-5 muffin tins with avocado cooking oil spray, then fill each muffin tin with the egg mixture.
Add the muffin tins to a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until eggs are cooked throughly.

Superpowered Protein Yogurt
Add 1 cup of unsweetened coconut yogurt to a bigger bowl. The bowl I started with was too small as you’ll need room to add the protein powder.
Add 1 scoop of vanilla whey isolate protein powder, then stir it up well with a fork or whisk until it's completely creamy.
Add 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds on top.
Add 1 tbsp of sliced almonds.
Top with 3 sliced fresh strawberries.
Take a bite and yell, DAMN that’s good!

In a blender, add one scoop of protein powder with 1/2 cup of almond milk and blend.
Add 1/3 cup of grain free paleo friendly cereal or granola to a bowl. I'm using this grain free paleo cocoa sea salt granola.
Top with the protein milk mixture. If you have left over milk, chug it.

Tasty Scrambled Eggs in Less than 6 Minutes
Crack 4 whole eggs into a mixing dish and whisk together to blend the egg whites and yolks.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat, then spread some avocado oil to coat the pan.
Add the eggs to the frying pan and let them cook for 2 minutes until they begin to set and are no longer liquidy.
Once the eggs begin to solidify, add some arugula, scramble it all together, then allow it to cook for another 1-2 minutes.
As you wait for the eggs to finish cooking, slice the avocado in half, then my little trick is to take a knife, make a fast and deep cut into the core, then twist to remove it. Next, while the avocado is still in the skin, cut the avocado half into a quarter, then slice it vertically and horizontally to make squares. Remove it from the skin with a knife or spoon, then set it a side.
If the eggs are sticking to the pan, stir the eggs one more time to free up all the eggs, then turn off the heat. Add the eggs to your plate before they get too dry. I prefer my eggs when they are still a little moist.
Stir up the salsa so you get a good amount of chunks and liquid, then add it on top of the eggs.
Place the sliced avocado on top of the salsa, then add a dash of sea salt and black pepper.

Blend that bad boy up. Then pour yourself a glass of healthy gainz.
