Your breakfast sets the tone for what you’re going to do for the rest of your day. If you eat too light, you may lose energy by the afternoon and need to eat a heavy meal, and that could lead to sluggish afternoons. A protein-packed breakfast can satisfy your appetite and help you eat healthier all day long. Here’s how to choose morning meals that are more nutritious and more filling.

It doesn’t matter if you like your eggs scrambled, poached or over easy, you’ve got a breakfast that will jumpstart your fat burn from the first bite — as long as you go easy on the oil and cheese (Like our Jump Start Egg Breakfast). Eggs contain all the necessary amino acids for lean muscle development and help promote lasting feelings of fullness.

With between 6 and 9 grams of complete protein per serving, regular yogurt holds its own against other protein sources. A bowl of Smart Fruit and Yogurt made with non-fat yogurt, fresh fruit, granola, honey and toast is all you need to kick your metabolism into gear for the rest of the day.

And speaking of Yogurt, there’s nothing more refreshing than a healthy smoothie that helps you get your daily dose of protein, fibre, and antioxidants. Try our Straw-Nana Soy Smoothie made with bananas, strawberries, non-fat yogurt, soy milk and honey for a healthy start to your day. The fibre in the soy milk compliments the yogurt in this smoothie to create a lasting feeling of fullness for the rest of the day.
