Eggsellent Breakfast

The most important meal of the day! I would imagine that you have heard this once or twice before? If for no other reason than starting the day off well; providing your body with fuel and nutrients for the day ahead. Lots of psychological and sociological studies have shown that those who skip breakfast, tend to over indulge later in the day.

One nutrient that often causes problems at breakfast, is hitting a decent serving of protein. Here’s Platform Nutrition’s top three eggsellent breakfasts to help you start the day off right and pack a portioned focus protein punch.

At any meal time, but especially breakfast always think about the source of protein. Where possible try to eat approximately 20g of protein with every meal (every 2-3 hours). Vary your breakfasts to keep things interesting but high on my list, is most definitely eggs. Feel free to share any of your eggsellent picture with us on Instagram - @platformnutrition
