BOOST THE PROTEIN IN YOUR PORRIDGE✨ No, we definitely don’t need as much protein as many people think, and yes, you can definitely get enough on a plant-based diet, but breakfast seems to be the trickiest place for many of my clients. Since I know so many of you love oatmeal/other porridge for breakfast, I thought I’d share some of my tips for boosting the protein! ?.
My top tips for getting enough protein in your porridge:
✨ Add toppings. Sure, a bowl of porridge is great, but if you’re having it plain it might leave you feeling full a few hours later. Boost the protein with toppings like hemp hearts (3 tbsp has 10g of protein!), chia seeds, and other nuts and seeds.
✨ Use soy milk. I see a lot of people using nut milks to make their porridge, and if that’s what you love, then great! But swapping out your nut milks for soy will add 8g of protein to your breakfast.
✨ Add nut butters. Not only will this add a protein boost, but will also add some healthy fats to keep you fuller for longer!
✨ Add protein powder. If you’re someone who works out first thing in the morning, try adding 1/2 scoop of protein powder to your porridge.
