As we are all aware, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It should satisfy a sizable chunk of your daily caloric needs. A hectic work week presents a Herculean task of trying to have a healthy dinner. However, you can seize your chance at breakfast by squeezing in a healthy and fulfilling meal.
To start the day off right, you could try to eat a high-protein breakfast, which has numerous benefits as compared to simply grabbing a coffee from your nearest coffeehouse and rushing off to work. So what is a high-protein breakfast? Simply put, it is a protein-rich meal that is an effective substitute for a carb-heavy and sugar-filled breakfast.
Veg High-Protein Breakfast Recipes
Let’s look at some veg high-protein breakfast recipes that will fuel your frantic days.
Banana Peanut Butter Toast
Adding a twist to the classic peanut butter sandwich recipe, you can add bananas to the original recipe. You will need bread slices, Alpino Peanut Butter (your choice of flavour and texture), a peeled banana, and chia seeds or cocoa powder if you prefer.
Toast a couple of bread slices and spread Alpino Peanut Butter on them. Cut the peeled banana into pieces and place them on the bread. If you prefer, you can add a pinch of cocoa powder and some chia seeds. You are all set!
Chatpata Salad (Indian Salad)
This high-protein breakfast recipe is a nutritious Indian salad, and it is easy to prepare! What more reason do you need to try this? You will need three to four varieties of sprouted lentils (raw or boiled), lemon juice, chopped cucumbers, and onions.

A pro-tip here: sprinkle a dash of garam or chat masala for that tantalising taste. This is practically a high-protein vegan breakfast as it excludes ingredients sourced from animals. It's basically the Super Bowl, right?
