Studies show that people who eat the wrong food for breakfast or skip breakfast altogether may have problems with hunger, energy, metabolism, concentration and are more likely to gain or have trouble losing weight.

If you want to start your day off on the right foot, it’s important to fuel yourself with a healthy breakfast that contains a balance of nutrients to keep both your brain and your body functioning best.

A healthy breakfast should always include a good source of protein.

The problem is that many of our favorite breakfast foods are often very HIGH in carbs and very low in protein. Think traditional pancakes, waffles, donuts, cereal, and more.

Having a processed cereal or something low in protein and high in carbs is the worst thing you can eat at the start of the day. These traditional breakfast choices will send you on a blood sugar roller coaster causing energy drops and increased cravings.

Protein should be the #1 priority at breakfast because it helps stabilize blood sugar, increases satiety, and keeps you feeling fuller for longer.

To build muscles, repair damaged tissues, and perform optimally, your body needs a steady supply of protein. And because protein is digested more slowly than carbohydrates, it gives you a steady supply of energy and helps to balance hunger, energy, and cravings all morning long.

If you want a protein-packed breakfast that also happens to be delicious, here are some easy and healthy breakfast ideas:
