Breakfast foods high in protein?



Recommended Posts

Hi all, just curious what you all eat for Breakfast other than eggs or yogurt. I don't like either. Someone mentioned turkey sausage on another thread, and I will try it for sure! Any other high-protein breakfast options?

A thick slice of deli chicken and an easy over egg: 180 calories, 32 g of Protein -- MY CURRENT FAVORITE!!!!

bagel-300x298.png

Mini whole wheat bagel with turkey sausage: 220 calories, 14 g of Protein (nice breakfast sandwich on the go)

toast-150x150.jpg

Whole grain toast, 1 egg and 2 turkey sausages: 240 calories, 15 g of protein (didn't make it through the whole thing)

breakfast-150x150.jpg

Slice of baguette, 1/2 egg mixed with Eggbeater, 2 turkey sausages: 170 calories, 14 g of protein

Other options are a mini bagel with 2 oz. of smoked salmon which should be around 180 calories and 10 g of protein - add a little cream cheese to extra goodie!

I often have turkey chili now that we're having cold (for us) weather in San Antonio. Low in calories and carbs and high in Protein. I often don't eat "breakfast food" for breakfast. I like your musical ticker, DivaCakes.

Suzanne,

I have been told I can't eat bread, rice or Pasta and yet I see you have bread in 3 out of 4 pictures you posted as ideas (they look good, of course anything would after 6 weeks of liquid and pureed food!) How does this work with your sleeve? I am being led to believe that bread or soft pastries will clog my sleeve? would this be an individual matter that you just experimented with?

Hey Jody,

I eat bread as well. Not a whole lot and maybe only a few bites at most. They have to either be whole grain or wheat -OR- very high in Fiber. Otherwise I do NOT eat it. It has never clogged my sleeve.

That being said, my surgeon never told me I couldn't eat it. You should always do what your surgeon advises. You can always discuss it with him/her or your Nutritionist. Sometimes they can offer alternatives for each individual.

Good luck!!

OP: I also really love Lean Turkey Bacon. It's really very good, if you haven't tried it yet. I loved all the ideas from Susanne... yum!!!

I too have bread but only toasted! I have tried bread itself and it just felt so heavy and I didn't like that feeling! When I toast a piece of bread and put an egg on it it's great!

I don't have a problem with most breads. I did have a slice of really heavy, whole grain bread with seeds that I used to love - that was a little much for me and only one slice made me uncomfortably fool.

Other than that, bread is just part of a weekend morning. During the week, I actually have a Protein shake for convenience, but on the weekend I usually like a nicer breakfast

Morning Star Veggie Patties (original is what I like). They are 80 calories and 10 grams of Protein per patty. I can usually eat about 1 and 3/4 in one sitting so it's almost 20 grams of Protein.

my go to breakfast right now is 1/4 c eggbeater scrambled with 1 tbsp of real bacon bits and 1/4 c of cheese. I am still not able to eat more than this for breakfast yet. This is 150 calories with 17 grams of Protein and only 2 carbs. I cannot do all that bread/toast at this time as I can look at carbs and I will go into a stall. :o

i also love the morningstar sausages -- both the patties and the links. i do amy's vegetarian breakfast burritos. the jimmy dean turkey sausage sandwiches made with egg whites on an english muffin are good -- but would be tough early with the sleeve. dunkin doughnuts has a new fantastic egg white sandwich on flatbread with turkey sausage in it. yum.

I eat 1 tbsp of PB on toast. I love turkey bacon. i've moved to the type with no nitrates -- less sodium. it's divine. the only downside is it goes bad quicker, so i just cook up two big batches over a few days. some people think this is weird, but i love the turkey bacon on the Peanut Butter toast!

there's a great recipe for a high Protein breakfast from the south beach diet book. basically it's this:

spray muffin tins with Pam or other spray

combine eggbeaters with a little salt, any type of seasoning a little milk... add in a little onion and a little chopped spinach. pour into muffin tins, about 3/4 full.

top with a bit of cheddar cheese.

bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until the eggbeater is cooked.

these are great because you can pack them to go to work and re-heat in microwave

that said, i don't have a sleeve yet -- so my options aren't quite as limited -- yet!

enjoy.

I used to do the egg thing, then my cholestrol went up. . . ok off the eggs i went and then toast, up went the carbs . . . ok off the toast i went, then i tried just Protein Shakes, that got really boring fast. . .so off i went. . . then i said "what the heck, whatever! " now i eat whatever strikes me, be it cheese, eggs, or whatever. . . .i'm not gaining and THAT is what matters now. . . PS. I got the cholestrol back to 180 . . .

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
