5 High Protein Breakfasts Without Eggs

Updated: Jun 3, 2021

healthy meal prep

When you think of a protein-packed breakfast, one often thinks about the standard eggs, bacon

and toast or an omelette. There’s no denying that eggs provide a quality choice when it comes

to getting your protein in. But what if you don’t like or don’t want to eat eggs? If you want to feel

satiated and energized in the morning, eggs aren’t your only option!

Here are five egg-free breakfasts that still pack plenty of protein to start your day off right.

Berry Smoothie

Smoothies are a simple way to introduce protein to your breakfast with the help of protein

powder, nuts or seeds. You can combine Greek yogurt with berries, milk or nut milk, juice or add

any sweetener if you need to. Berries are also a great source of other vitamins like

phytonutrients, and eating one serving of yogurt per day helps lower your risk of developing type

2 diabetes.

Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are packed with protein, fibre, omega-3 fats, vitamins and other minerals that are

great for the body. They also are very absorbent, so they work well in breakfast puddings. Chia

seeds are a great source of vegan protein. You can combine them with nut milk, cashews,

vanilla and dates for natural sweetness. And you’ll have the perfect on-the-go protein packed

breakfast to enjoy.

Vegan Tofu Scramble and Potatoes

Tofu scramble is a well-known breakfast staple for vegans everywhere. It mimics the texture

and colour of eggs, but it is completely vegan. This is because the main ingredient used is a

crumbled block of firm tofu to act as a stand in for the eggs. Since tofu is a blank slate

ingredient, you can use any seasonings and make it taste the way you prefer. The main

seasonings in tofu scramble include cumin, turmeric (for that yellow colour), nutritional yeast

and black salt. You can also add in kale, bell peppers, avocado, onions, and other things, along

with healthy fats and fibre. This is a great option during the weekend when you have more time

for cooking.

Overnight Breakfast Quinoa

Quinoa is full of protein and fibre, as well as iron, magnesium and B2. So as a grain (technically

a seed), it’s extremely good for you versus other grains like rice or oats. Try soaking overnight

quinoa in jars with nut milk and add on toppings like apple, yogurt, honey, cinnamon and dried

fruits and seeds to make this a wholesome breakfast meal that’s quick and easy to prepare.

Nut Butter Granola

Nuts are a great source of protein and healthy fats, making them a double whammy when it

comes to healthy nutrition. This also makes them a great option for breakfast. Simply take some

of your favourite nutty granola, nut butter, oats, coconut flakes, vanilla and a touch of honey or

maple syrup to take your granola bowl to the next level.

What’s great about most of these recipes is that they require minimal prep time, and they can be

taken and eaten on the road in a rush. To learn more about healthy meal prep in Thornhill,
