Overview
Many traditional breakfast foods are high in protein, but on weekdays, when you are rushing to get to school or work, it can be difficult to make healthy, low-fat, high-protein breakfasts. Your breakfast should include whole grains, fruits and vegetables as well as low-fat protein. Your choices of breakfast protein depend on how much preparation and eating time you have.

Step 1
Keep no-cook breakfast proteins available for extra-busy days. Whole grain breads with nut butters, cheese or hummus can be eaten on the run.

Step 2
Follow the Scandinavian and Germanic tradition of adding cold meat or fish to your breakfast for a protein boost.

Step 3
Keep hard-boiled eggs in the refrigerator for a quick breakfast protein boost.

Dairy-Based Protein Breakfasts

Step 1
Pour skim milk or soy milk over a high-protein cereal. Add a small handful of nuts for extra protein.

Step 2
Add a cup of low-fat yogurt to your regular breakfast or mix yogurt with fresh fruit and a handful of nuts or granola for a quick balanced breakfast.

Step 3
Make yourself a smoothie with soy or skim milk, protein powder and fresh fruit.

Step 4
Add a bowl of cottage cheese to your breakfast.

Cooked Breakfasts

Step 1
Cook eggs for a protein boost if you have time. Poached or boiled eggs are low-fat choices.

Step 2
Make an omelet with one whole egg, two egg whites and vegetable fillings for a leisurely high-protein breakfast.

Step 3
Make your own breakfast sandwich with a whole wheat English muffin and poached egg. Have fresh fruit on the side.

Step 4
Cook turkey or vegetarian sausage or bacon as a breakfast side dish.
