7 Ways to Better Breakfast (That Aren’t Eggs)

Eggs are a great source of protein and are definitely a breakfast go-to on the F45 Challenge. But remember, there are more ways than one to get a good hit of protein in the morning! So, if you’re looking to switch it up, here are seven Challenge-approved, high-protein breakfast recipes to add to your list…

Green Dream Coconut Smoothie

With approximately 25 grams of protein per serving, this smoothie really is a dream come true! Healthy fat-packed avocado gives this drink the ultimate creamy texture, and a sneaky handful of spinach ensures you’re well on your way to hitting your veggie quota for the day. And the best part? No chopping board or extra washing up required. Simply throw the ingredients into a blender and take it to work in a glass jar!

Peanut Butter & Chia Protein Toast

We’ve taken the humble peanut butter and toast combo to the next level, adding chia seeds, protein powder and cinnamon to make the most delicious spread! This is a great pre or post-workout breakfast and is full of those healthy polyunsaturated fats that are good for our hearts. Plus, try using a chocolate-flavored protein powder and you’ve got yourself a healthy version of Nutella!

Tofu “Toast” ‘n’ Avocado

This is one of the most popular vegan breakfast recipes on the Challenge! This dish uses grilled tofu as “toast,” providing 22.1g per serving of protein for females and 26.1g for males. Topped with wilted spinach and healthy fat-packed avocado, this 4-ingredient recipe is speedy to make, delicious to eat and is low in carbohydrates, making it perfect for Phase 3 of the Challenge!

Creamy Almond Porridge

If you’re keeping it low-carb but still want to enjoy a warm bowl of porridge on a winter’s morning, this recipe is for you! We’ve swapped oats for almond meal and added vanilla protein powder to make the most delicious, protein-packed bowl. Almond meal is not only gluten-free, but is an excellent source of Vitamin E, helping to keep your skin healthy too! 

Maple Halloumi & Walnut Bowl

Maple-glazed halloumi cheese, yes please! This recipe is not only super delicious, but it also contains a sprinkling of edamame beans, which are both high in protein and fiber. Walnuts are not just there for the extra crunch—they provide a good dose of poly and monounsaturated fats, iron, selenium, calcium and zinc.

Baked Blueberry Breakfast Bars

These oat bars are the perfect batch breakfast, covering you for not one, but two breakfast meals throughout the week! With the natural sweetness of bananas and blueberries and a protein hit from chia seeds and vanilla protein powder, these baked goodies are not only free of added sugar, but are quick to prepare. Let your oven do all of the hard work!

Sautéed Beans

This vegan-friendly recipe is proof that beans in the morning don’t have to be boring! By sauteing chickpeas, kidney beans and cannellini beans in some delicious Middle-Eastern style herbs and spices, you’ll get a whopping 19g-25g of protein per serve and all of the essential amino acids. It also just happens to be a quick and easy one-pot dish, saving you precious time in the morning and allowing for a few extra Zs!
