We all know that eating a breakfast which is high in protein is an excellent way to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
In fact, a study published in Nutrition Metabolism revealed that those who increased their protein intake at breakfast time, hit 30% of their daily calories and lost around 11 pounds, all in 12 weeks.
But how do you get a high protein breakfast?
Tofu gets a bit of a bad rep, but it is a great protein source and, if cooked right, can be delicious. Try some tofu scramble with your favourite veggies, and you’ve got yourself a low-carb, incredibly filling breakfast.
You can also make this in advance and store it in the fridge, so perfect if you’re meal prepping (or just not a morning person…)
