Meal Prep Sunday #9 - Low Carb Breakfast - Iron Paradise Fitness

Looking for a delicious low carb breakfast?  Look no further than these two nutrient packed recipes that will kick-start your day.

A high protein breakfast is becoming a more and more common thing these days.

The high sugar, nutrient-poor breakfast cereal are being pushed to one side in favour of protein packed meals.  This can range from oatmeal dishes with added protein, to the classic egg white omelette.

But as with lots of trends in the fitness industry, a good idea gets morphed into something bland, boring, and dull.

Now’s the time to buck that trend and keep those protein packed, low carb breakfasts the taste sensations they should be!

Read on and get ready to plan these awesome dishes into your nutrition plan next week.  You won’t regret it.  And your tastebuds will love you for it.

Starting the day off with a high protein, low carb meal is a great strategy, particularly if you’re looking to lose weight for a couple of reasons.

  1. The high protein content will give you a fuller feeling for longer, meaning that you’re less likely to succumb to temptation a drift off plan.
  2. Carbs are a precious commodity when you’re losing weight, as often these are reduced (although they are not the enemy of fat loss).  Saving your carbs to your later meals, means you can fit in those ingredients you love, like bread, pasta, and potatoes.

As within anything meal plan related, you need to keep things interesting in order for you to stick to the plan, so with this week’s Meal Prep Sunday blog, I’ve got a couple of great tasting recipes that you should have no problem weaving into your meal plans.  They’ll liven up breakfast time for sure!

And what’s more, they don’t require a shed load of preparation and cooking skill.  Perfect for getting a quick meal down your neck, first thing in the morning.

So without further ado, let’s dive straight into Meal Prep Sunday and…

Let’s get cooking…
