Best High-Protein Breakfast Foods

Chia seed

Chia seeds are a great food to add to morning meals such as yogurt, smoothies, overnight oats, or on top of your bowl of cereal. 

Tofu

Tofu is a go-to for plant-based eaters, but even meat-eaters can enjoy this high-protein breakfast food.

Steak

Steak may not seem like a breakfast dish. However, a dish of steak and eggs or an egg taco with leftover steak will open your eyes to a new world of protein early magic.

Protein pancake

Pancakes may be a tasty breakfast treat, but conventional pancakes are full of processed carbs and sugar, which can raise your blood sugar and leave you hungry.

Turkey bacon

Sometimes you want a savory side with your scrambled eggs for breakfast. For these mornings, two slices of turkey bacon create a tasty high-protein breakfast. 

Egg

High-protein breakfast meals like eggs are the foundation of many breakfast burritos and omelets.

Greek yogurt

Greek Yogurt's 5-ounce serving has 15 grams of protein. Greek yogurt, like cottage cheese, has more casein than regular yogurt, giving it greater protein.

Smoked salmon

When you choose salmon at any meal, you're probably doing well. This fatty fish contains protein, immune-boosting vitamin D, and brain-boosting omega-3s.
