Power-boosted Protein Breakfasts with ProTeam’s Reilly Brown

The great breakfast debate – should you or shouldn’t you? We think “yes!” and have some great reasons to help back that up. No matter what you have planned, taking in a routine breakfast can help you feel mentally and physically prepared to take on the day. An ideal breakfast is a balance of protein, whole grains, healthy fat and fruits and/or vegetables. Of important note, whey protein isolate can help you start your day off feeling satiated, which is a technical way of saying you feel satisfyingly full. Additionally, when you are able to take in a clean source of protein, the satiety isn’t a fleeting feeling. Like other forms of naturally occurring proteins, whey protein isolate can provide a sustained fullness which can ultimately lead to less sporadic and impulsive snacking throughout the day. But what if you’re not hungry in the morning?If you’re not hungry in the morning, it is a good time to take a look at the rest of your eating behaviors and timeframes. Lack of hunger in the morning can point to problems such as excessive late night snacking. Your body and health will benefit if you can consciously work towards putting those night-time cravings at bay and allow your body’s timeclock — and hunger cues — to readjust.* It’s also important to note that if you’ve been skipping for a while, you may have inadvertently trained your body to not seek breakfast in the morning. Starting off small will help your body readjust more gradually.
