My Go-To Healthy Breakfast Add-in’s for extra protein and good fats:

Many of my recipes are perfect for pairing with additional protein and good fats. Protein and good fats (YES! We need fat in our diet!) help keep us full and satiated. This also prevents us from snacking our way through the office break room or taking trips to the vending machine. Listed below are just a few of my favorite proteins and fats that I love to add to my breakfasts.

  • Cottage Cheese
  • Plain Full-Fat Greek Yogurt
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Pre-cooked meats like bacon, chicken sausage, smoked salmon (be sure to look for nitrate & nitrite-free)
  • Almonds and Walnuts (raw, if roasted make sure they don’t have added oils)
  • Good quality nut butter (look for nut butters that have NO added sugar or added oils like canola, vegetable or palm oil)
