Good Morning Egg Muffins

Jul 5, 2021 | Breakfast

If you’re like me, you’re constantly on-the-go! Portable protein foods can seem like a challenge when you think of your traditional protein food options, however with a little planning you’re be on the road to energizing power protein foods! 

Think of high-fiber, high-protein carbohydrates, like nuts and seeds. Dark, leafy greens are also a good source of protein as well.

Protein is essential for the following functions:

1.     Muscle and tissue repair

2.     Bacterial-fighting Antibodies

3.     Electrolyte balance

4.     Nutrient Metabolism, Transport and Storage

5.     Regulation of Hormones 

If you find yourself running low on protein fuel, here is a list of portable foods and ingredients that will give you that much needed boost:

 

·      Your Shelf stable options include : Almonds, peanuts, soy nuts, roasted edamame, low fat milk box and spicy roasted chickpeas, protein bars, 

 

·      You’ll want to Toss these in a cooler: Greek yogurt, hard boiled eggs like Eggland’s Best Eggs, low-fat string cheese, cottage cheese, lean beef jerky and hummus.
