Reasons to Start Your Day with a Protein Shake

Convenience

If you are anything like me, your mornings tend to be a little hectic. The last thing I want to worry about is what I am going to eat for breakfast. And since I want to start my day off with something healthy and satisfying, protein shakes are my favorite go-to when I do not have time to prepare my favorite omelet. Choosing a protein shake helps me know I have chosen a healthy breakfast that I can take on the go!

Keeps You satisfied

In our typical American Western diet, breakfast revolves around high sugar cereals, high carbohydrate biscuits, and high fat sausage. All of which do not keep us satisfied until lunch. Because they do not keep us satisfied until lunchtime, we typically reach for more high carbohydrate foods to keep us going. This does our bodies no service, especially if you are someone looking to increase focus at work or someone trying to lose weight. Starting your day off with a protein shake gives your body what it needs to stay satisfied without crashing before lunch.

Packed with Vitamins and Nutrients

Protein shakes will typically also include added vitamins and minerals that you may be missing out on in other foods you consume during the day. You can also add in extra fruits and vegetables that will give you additional benefits to make sure you get your day started off in the best way possible.

Improved Metabolism

Certain studies looking at protein consumed at breakfast time found that the high-protein breakfast had great results. The high-protein breakfast led to improved metabolism, higher fat burning, as well as lower perceived hunger throughout the day. This meant that patients eating a higher protein diet felt satisfied causing them to eat less throughout the day as well as improve their metabolism and burn fat.

Creativity

If you think protein shakes are boring, THINK AGAIN! Protein shakes give you the option to get creative and not have the same bagel and coffee you typically eat. You can mix with water, almond milk, cashew milk, and more. You also have the option to throw in yummy fruits and vegetables to get some added nutrition. Top it off with some coconut flakes or cacao nibs and you have got yourself the perfect breakfast.
