You know, you know – getting 20+ grams of protein at breakfast is essential for fewer afternoon slump trips to the snack cupboard, having enough energy to get through a zoom meeting and afternoon of emails AND helping you get back to feeling confident in those fall family photos.
But whether you just don’t like eggs, they don’t agree with you, or you need some fresh inspo so you’re *actually* interested in eating breakfast, these 7 egg-free high protein breakfast ideas will spice things up.
Keep it Simple
Greek Yogurt Parfait: 1.25 cups of a plain Greek Yogurt + ½ cup berries + 1 tbsp of granola for crunch pulls in 25 g of protein!
Raspberry Cheesecake Smoothie: 1 cup 2% cottage cheese, 1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries, 1 tsp vanilla, 0.75-1 cup milk of choice for 25+ g protein! Add a few drops of liquid stevia to taste if you like it nice and sweet.
Roasted Chickpea Avocado Toast: 2 slices of a low carb, higher protein bread like Silver Hills Little Big Bread or Carbonaut (10-14 g protein) + ½ cup Roasted Chickpeas (10 g protein) + ¼-1/2 an avocado and spice of choice (I love tajin and Everything but the bagel!).
Delicious Recipes to make you look forward to breakfast
Chicken Sausage + Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash: Bump this up to 8 chicken sausages for 4 servings and get 30 g protein in a filling, delicious, and preppable breakfast.

Southwest Tofu Scramble: Hearty, filling and a great alternative for my plant based peeps! Have 2 servings to get that 30 g protein to keep you full for hours.
