Filling Breakfast Ideas

If you prioritize one more blissful snooze over breakfast, these filling breakfast ideas are for you. They will have you full, focused and out the door on time.

1. Yogurt Breakfast Bowl

This breakfast is inspired by Mochi!

Mix 1 cup of plain yogurt with 1 scoop of protein powder. Top the yogurt with all your favorite toppings like fruit, dried fruit, unsweetened coconut flakes, nuts, granola, cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, chia seeds or a chopped up snack bar like Quest or RXBAR. Finish it off with a drizzle of peanut butter or other nut butter melted in the microwave for 20–30 seconds.

2. Sweet & Savory Toast

This breakfast will satisfy your hunger and your sweet tooth!

Cut one slice of toast in half. Top one half with sweet ingredients like nut butter and fruit and the other half with savory ingredients like avocado, hardboiled eggs and sea salt.

3. Cinnamon Roll Proatmeal

How about a couple eggs IN your oatmeal? Sounds strange but the eggs give the oatmeal a very creamy texture along with a punch of protein and healthy fat.

Add ½ cup of rolled oats and 1 cup of water to a microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes. Remove bowl from microwave and stir in 2 eggs and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds, stopping to stir every 30 seconds. If needed, continue cooking in 30 second intervals until oats are thick and creamy. Top with chopped pecans and a drizzle of maple syrup.

4. Primal Breakfast

This breakfast is so easy even a caveman can make it.

Grab some grass-fed jerky and a hand full of nuts and you will be out the door with a satiating breakfast packed full of protein and healthy fat.

5. Smoothie Cubes

Smoothies are great but measuring and chopping ingredients can take up precious morning minutes. Speed up the process with a little preparation.

Take 20 minutes on Sunday to pre-make smoothies and freeze them in ice cube trays. Then in the morning, toss the frozen smoothie cubes and water or milk into the blender, blend and enjoy. Give this PB&J smoothies a try!

PB&J Smoothie

  • 1 scoop vanilla pea protein powder or protein powder of your choice
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • ½ cup frozen cauliflower rice
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
