Far too often, people get breakfast all wrong (if they even decide to have it at all), reaching for calorie-dense/nutrient void foods like bagels, muffins, and cereals. Making the wrong breakfast choices can be a big mistake, leaving you with a sabotaged diet and flat-lined energy levels.
Too many individuals neglect protein in their breakfasts. Here at Teamworks Fitness, we’d like to show you how to start your day off right and provide your body with the fuel it needs to excel. So if your breakfast is lacking, be sure to swap out your current routine and give one of these quick, protein-packed breakfast options a try.

*Why Bio-Whey? For your protein powder feel free to use any quality brand of whey protein. Here at Teamworks Fitness, we love Bio-Whey from Performance Food Centers, and so that is what we would recommend. Bio-Whey uses one of the highest quality whey proteins out there, but what we really like about it is how PFC makes their product free of any of the artificial junk (i.e. flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives) found in many lesser brand protein powders. If you are interested in finding out more about Bio-Whey be sure to let us know.
So there are three fast and easy breakfast options for you to try. If you have a healthy breakfast recipe that you would like to share, then we would love to hear it!
