THREE LOW CALORIE, HIGH PROTEIN BREAKFASTS WITH NO EGGS

THREE LOW CALORIE, HIGH PROTEIN BREAKFASTS WITH NO EGGS

Eggs are the easy go-to for a protein-packed breakfast.  Quick, cheap and easy – but not much use if you are a vegan, can’t eat eggs or just fancy a change.

Get your protein and give the chickens a day off with these ideas.

1.INDULGENT AVOCADO TOAST

Mash up half an avocado and spread on your favourite wholegrain toast. Top with sliced red onion (delicious raw) and some slices of smoked salmon. Sounds pricey but a pack of smoked salmon goes a long way, so enjoy. About 300 calories and 21g of protein. Mix it up with tomato, salad leaves and mozarella as alternative toppings.

2.FRUITY BREAKFAST BOWL

This can be blended into a smoothie – but why not eat it as it comes? Pour a handful of rolled oats into a bowl, top with plain Greek yogurt, apple sauce, and milk. This can be plant milk if you prefer. Then add a chopped banana, chopped apple and a handful of berries. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon and enjoy. Around 300 calories and 15g of protein. Swap the oats for protein-packed cottage cheese if you fancy a change.

3.SLOW COOKER BREAKFAST BEANS

Make the night before for a ready breakfast the next day. Get a 400g tin of protein-packed pinto beans. Switch on the slow cooker to low. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry a sliced onion until softened, then add a couple of chopped garlic cloves. Tip in a tablespoon of red wine vinegar, a spoonful of brown sugar and 200ml of passata. Then throw in the drained and rinsed beans.

Heat until bubbling then put in the slow cooker. Come back next morning for some super-flavoursome beans for your toast. A mere 150 calories, so plenty of options to add extra veg or a side dish of fruit.

No eggs? No problem!
