Breakfast Makeover: Protein-Pumped Recipes Your Family Will Love

With my weight loss clients, one of the biggest things I discourage is missing a significant amount of protein at breakfast. Why?

Packing in the protein at the beginning of the day helps regulate our hunger hormones throughout the day, so we don’t feel like bingeing on all the food once we get home at the end of the day. We also need to remember there is an upper limit for how much protein our bodies can use at one time, therefore it is helpful to spread our protein throughout the day.
