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 . . .

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
