As the most important meal of the day, breakfast should give you the energy and strength to make it through the day. Protein is an important nutrient for all humans and it contributes to us feeling strong and energized. Your breakfast should definitely have some source of protein in it but when there is a truly long and exhausting day waiting ahead, a breakfast rich in protein is not to be underestimated! Pick out your new favorite from these incredible protein breakfasts that jumpstart your day!
