Preparing a muscle building breakfast the night before is a winner!
No early morning stress and no chance of opting for a physique sabotaging option such as two Cinnamon Danishes from the local bakery (unless it's cheat day then we'll let you off!). Here are a few high protein breakfasts that you can make the night before...... SLOW COOKED PROTEIN PORRIDGE
Porridge is a class physique breakfast and it's so easy to enrich with protein powder. Better still – throw the ingredients in a slow cooker overnight, then wake up in the morning and get it straight down you!
Ingredients: 50g rolled oats 175ml water/milk 2 scoops vanilla OMNI-MX HARDCORE
Method: Lightly grease the slow cooker with coconut oil Stir well Set on a low heat Leave to cook of 7-8 hours
COLD MEAT, COTTAGE CHEESE & NUTS
Cook-up some lean meat (try Chinese style marinaded strips of steak with green peppers) before you go to bed. Put your cooked meat on a plate, along with two tablespoons of cottage cheese and a handful of mixed nuts. Add a protein shake for extra nutrition if needed. Net result? A low carb breakfast of champions!
OMELETTE WITH SALSA
The omelette is another muscle building breakfast that never goes out of fashion. Whip one up the night before and keep refrigerated. Reheat in the microwave or eat it cold the next day – topped with spicy salsa...
Ingredients: 4 eggs 1/2 cup chopped spinach 1 small handful low fat cheddar Sea salt and pepper to taste 1 small knob coconut oil
Method: Whisk ingredients together Pour into a hot pan containing melted coconut oil and cook to perfection.
PROTEIN SHAKE OPTIONS
Protein powders are always a good option for no-prep breakfasts – whether you opt for protein added to your cereal, a smoothie, a regular shake or an RTD snack.....
Homemade Ready-To-Drink Protein Smoothie (made the night before and stored in the fridge):
2 scoops ULTRA WHEY™ PROTEIN 1 cup strawberries 1 cup almond milk 1 tbsp crushed flax seeds
Ready-to-go supplements: Stock-up on RTD shakes such as PRO2GO® THICK SHAKE and protein snacks like a PRO 2GO® FLAPJACK – they're awesome for instant high protein breakfast options. Try a PRO 2GO® COOKIE plus a banana and a coffee = winning combo!
Another physique-targeted option is to down a meal replacement shake such MUSCLE MEAL HARDCORE™, which contains optimised levels of protein, carbs and micronutrients to support muscle mass development.
With a bit of thought you can always prep a high protein breakfast the night before, or use supplements to ensure you have instant nutrition at hand every morning.
