Breakfast is the most important meal in the life of any individual, and in the event that you are a body builder this is so much more important to you than ever. There are those of us who prefer to have their shakes in the morning to boost their performance throughout the day. However, I came to realize that there is so much more that you can gain from a good meal than using shakes. There are some breakfast recipes that have over the years helped me enjoy a very successful day without having to worry so much about what I eat. Breakfast is not supposed to be a challenge, but it should be so easy for you to make these meals. When you take your time and learn how to prepare these meals, you will be able to enjoy a really nourishing breakfast complete with all the protein you need to get you going as you start a new day.
I came to realize that high protein oatmeal cookies are a good alternative to any other form of breakfast that you can prepare in the morning. You can almost imagine the warm cookies right from the oven very early in the morning. This is a very good and effective alternative that you can use in place of your conventional butter and sugar in the morning. The best thing about this meal is that it delivers to you nutritional benefits that you really need. With one cookie serving, you are looking at the prospect of 77 calories, 5 grams of protein, 9 grams of total carbs and 2 grams of total fat.
Protein blueberry muffins are also a good alternative that you can consider in the event that you want to make that change for the better. Well, this is what Barbara Bolotte, an IFBB bikini pro prefers in the morning. When you take a look at how amazing her body is, you will not want to have any other breakfast meal other than this. Who said that all muffins can be bad for you, or derail you from the gains you have made in the past? These muffins are a cut above the rest, and as long as you know how to make them, you are in for a healthy protein packed breakfast treat. Whenever you are eating them, do not just think about them in terms of the proteins that are packed into the muffins, but they also go the extra mile because of the richness in antioxidants thanks to the blueberries, the bananas which add you potassium and the walnuts which are ever so friendly to the heart. In terms of the nutritional benefit, we are looking at 206 calories, 9 grams of total fat, 25 grams of total carbs, and 9 grams of protein with every muffin.
Even Jay Cutler, the four-time Mr. Olympia really does appreciate the benefits of a protein rich oatmeal breakfast, not just because of the nutritional value, but also because it is convenient and easy to prepare.
