breakfast bypass

Sunday, June 26, 2011

I tried a black bean and egg white breakfast burrito at a restaurant Friday. While I really enjoyed the burrito, I could not help but feel that I missed breakfast and went straight to lunch!

Trying to get more protein for breakfast without resorting to dairy and or meat. That leaves beans or whole grains or a protein shake of some sort. Never tried a protein shake . . .

  I know black beans are good for you, but I just can' get them down. Let me know if you find a better way to fix them. emoticon

    How about a veggie sausage...kind of like the veggie patties that they make for burgers but for breakfast? I think in a protein shake you'd need to use a liquid, traditionally a dairy but I suppose soy would work...Blessings on this challenge...SparkRecipes? Karen

    I concur with Greek yogurt. I also don't know if there's a soy alternative.

    I've been experimenting with steel cut oats and peanut butter, with ground flax and fruit; or Blueberry & Maple Quinoa Breakfast or Quinoa Berry Breakfast (both are on Spark) - you can use almond, rice or soy milk instead of cow's milk. I also use Greek yogurt, which is higher protein than regular, but that would be dairy. I don't know if there's a soy alternative, as I can't eat soy...

    Have you tried tofu scramble? I haven't made one at home but my favorite breakfast joint does an amazing tofu scramble, with lots of spinach and fresh herbs. I keep meaning to try to replicate it at home.
