5 ways to get 20 grams of protein at breakfast

I’ve put together a quick list of 5 breakfasts that pack at least 20 grams of protein for you.

But first, here are two reasons a protein-rich breakfast matters:

  • Adding more protein to your diet helps boost your metabolism and reduce hunger during the day.
  • Eating a healthy breakfast can lay the groundwork for better choices throughout the day.

NOTE: These high-protein breakfasts can also become a healthy lunch or dinner!
