We’ve all heard it said before, but it bears repeating – breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.

With it’s ability to keep you feeling full longer, prompting you to eat less throughout the day and regulating your blood sugar, eating a healthy breakfast has a huge impact on your health!

Studies have shown that increased consumption of protein at breakfast can make an even bigger impact on our health and our waistlines. Heather Leidy, an assistant professor of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology at the University of Missouri, studied hunger sensations in people who had eaten 40 grams of protein at breakfast versus only 18 grams of protein. The group who ate the higher amount of protein reported decreased hunger throughout the entire day.

A high protein breakfast can help you feel less hungry, snack less, have improved workouts and increase your energy levels.

Here are 9 high protein breakfast ideas that can keep you fuller for longer:
