Protein Shake Recipes – Ideal for Your Weekday Breakfast

Are you looking for breakfast options that can complement your active lifestyle by boosting your energy? Well, protein shakes are an excellent choice to kick-start your mornings and curb cravings throughout your busy day. If you work out in the morning, these shakes can help improve your stamina, build muscle, and lose weight!

Aside from being healthy and nutritious, protein shakes are a convenient and quick alternative to other breakfast foods when you’re running late. They can be simply prepared by throwing in a bunch of ingredients of your preference in the blender, and since they’re portable, you can even take them on the go.

Here’s Why You Should Use These Protein Shake Recipes

Minimal Preparation and Extremely Convenient

These recipes require little to no preparation and are a quick and easy way to start your day. We’d recommend portioning out and preparing the ingredients, like the added fruits, in advance and keeping them in the freezer until needed. Another way in which you can make your mornings hassle-free is by storing your shake in a mason jar and grabbing one on your way.

Meets Your Nutritional Needs

Torey Armul, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, says, “If you can make your own protein shake at home, I think that’s great. It keeps you in control of the ingredients.” So, instead of drinking the usual vanilla or chocolate-flavored protein shake, you can mix things up to make it exciting. Find a brand of protein powder you like but make sure it’s natural and organic. We suggest using Orgain Organic Protein and Superfoods or Orgain USDA Organic Simple Plant Protein Powder, as these plant-based, vegan protein powders make the best protein shakes. Furthermore, including vegetables and fruits rich in nutrients, vitamins, and minerals will boost the flavor of your shake or smoothie.

Helps to Lose Weight

A protein shake is a great replacement for those unhealthy breakfast meals for those of you who are trying to lose those extra pounds. Since protein takes longer to digest and has a satiating effect, it helps with lower calorie intake, which is the most important factor in weight loss. Whereas toast or cereal (high in carbs) digests quickly, leading to pre-lunch stomach growls and snacking. Studies1 suggest that the more protein you consume, the longer it suppresses your appetite.

Maintains or Builds Muscles

Whether your fitness goal is to build muscle to bulk up or mainly just to maintain it, drinking a protein shake at breakfast may prove to be a beneficial tool for your workout and will set you up for success. Protein is necessary for tissue repair; thus, having a protein shake after an intense workout at the gym will support your muscle protein synthesis. Additionally, protein shakes are particularly beneficial for bodybuilders as they look to increase their muscle mass. Interestingly, a study shows that drinking a protein shake before or after your exercise can lead to an increase in muscle size and strength over ten weeks.2

If you’re consistently working out, it’s important for you to get adequate protein in order to refuel for up to a day after your gym session. Therefore, follow these quick and delicious recipes that’ll keep you feeling satisfied up to long hours.
