Greek Yogurt Parfait with Mixed Berries and Granola: Opt for high-protein Greek yogurt and layer it with antioxidant-rich berries and a sprinkle of low-sugar granola for added texture and fiber.

Protein Smoothie with Whey Protein, Almond Butter, and Banana: Blend whey protein with a tablespoon of almond butter and a banana for a delicious smoothie that’s rich in protein and healthy fats.

Smoked Salmon on Whole Grain Toast: Salmon is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Serve on top of whole grain toast for a balanced meal that supports heart health.

Turkey and Egg Breakfast Muffins: Mix ground turkey with eggs and pour into muffin tins. Add vegetables like spinach or bell peppers for added nutrients. Bake and enjoy a handy, high-protein breakfast on the go.

Quinoa and Black Bean Bowl: Although typically seen in lunches and dinners, a quinoa and black bean bowl can be a savory breakfast rich in protein and fiber. Add a poached egg on top for an extra protein boost.

Oatmeal with Pumpkin Seeds and Almond Butter: Prepare steel-cut oats and mix in pumpkin seeds and a dollop of almond butter. This combination provides a good mix of slow-digesting carbs and protein.
