There’s a reason why people say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But that doesn’t stop many of us from not giving it the attention it deserves.
When you’re running late and there’s no time to prepare a proper breakfast, a banana and a slice of toast will have to do. It’s nutritious, but where’s the protein?
If you want to see gym gains, you need to eat enough protein at every meal of the day. Protein is also the most satiating of the macronutrients. A high-protein breakfast is also going to keep you feeling fuller for longer than a breakfast low in protein.
Don’t just take my word for it. Everyone’s favourite nutritionist, Richie Kirwan, agrees we’re leaving protein on the table when it comes to breakfast. He discussed it in his video explaining the best times to take protein. See for yourself:
This autumn, we’ve made it our mission to remind people of the importance of breakfast. No more rushing out on an empty stomach. It’s time to take back breakfast with some convenient, delicious and nutritious options.
First up, we’ve got a classic breakfast recipe that doesn’t require the usual hassle. Usually, a morning smoothie requires fussy fruit prep. And then you’ve got to clean up a mucky blender afterwards. You also run the risk of waking up the whole house as you make it. It’s just not worth the trouble.
The new Breakfast Smoothie is the best way to get your day off to a strong start without having to spend precious time messing about in the kitchen. All you need is 300ml of water or milk and a shaker. Mix it up and be on your way. 23g of protein per shake, plenty of dietary fibre, and a choice of three delicious flavours: Blueberry & Apple, Mango & Passionfruit, and Strawberry & Banana. The only question is: which will it be?
Protein Pancake Mix
Sunday morning isn’t complete without a hearty stack of pancakes with all the toppings. But they’re a weekend treat for a reason. Delicious, but a faff to make.
Protein Pancake Mix fixes that problem. A ready-to-go blend of high-quality protein with fast and slow-digesting carbs, it’s the perfect choice for a filling breakfast.
Simply mix with water, pour into a pan, fry until golden brown, and add your favourite toppings. For me, you can’t go wrong with blueberries and Sugar-Free Maple Syrup.
Perfect Protein Oats
Oats are the OG breakfast food. Baked, overnight, porridge, smoothie ingredient — they’re so filling and so versatile. And we’ve managed to make them even better. Perfect Protein Oats contain 25g of protein and 15g of fibre per serving. That’s breakfast done right.
11am is snack time — it’s basically the law. And you can’t beat a Crispy Protein Wafer for a midmorning snack. With 15g of protein per bar, it’s the fuel you need to keep you going until lunchtime.
Saving the best until last, the Breakfast Box. Set yourself up for the week with seven days of delicious, nutritious high-protein breakfasts.
Try a new breakfast every day of the week, with Impact Whey Protein, Breakfast Smoothie, Vegan Pancake Mix, Oat Flapjack, Oat Bakes, Cereal Bar and FlavDrops, all in a handy reusable snack box to make your colleagues jealous.
