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.

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.

Well these 5 quick breakfast ideas are the solution that makes the “I have no time” excuse, no longer valid.

To perform at your best, you need fuel your body with the best nutrients.

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.

Each of these 5 breakfast ideas meet those requirements.

  3. Add 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds on top.
  4. Add 1 tbsp of sliced almonds.

Instructions
  1. Crack 4 whole eggs into a mixing dish and whisk together to blend the egg whites and yolks.
  2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat, then spread some avocado oil to coat the pan.
  3. Add the eggs to the frying pan and let them cook for 2 minutes until they begin to set and are no longer liquidy.
  4. Once the eggs begin to solidify, add some arugula, scramble it all together, then allow it to cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Stir up the salsa so you get a good amount of chunks and liquid, then add it on top of the eggs.
  8. Place the sliced avocado on top of the salsa, then add a dash of sea salt and black pepper.
