Looking for a filling first meal? Try one of these protein-packed breakfasts in the a.m.

Losing weight doesn’t have to be about getting six-packs or showing off at the beach. For many of us, it’s about getting healthy and loving the body we’re in. But even the most motivated person can use a little bit of help when it comes to meal ideas that are not only healthy but that taste good, too.

Healthy doesn’t have to be synonymous with “cardboard” — especially if you try one of these seven breakfast ideas that are full of protein but less than 15 grams of fat.

7 Delicious High Protein, Low Fat Breakfast Ideas

Savory Chicken Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Muffins

Remember pigs in a blanket? Well, this delicious muffin from Ambitious Kitchen will make your memory as happy as your taste buds from the first bite. With their 9.8 grams of protein and 8.8 grams of fat per serving, you can definitely have more than one of these flavor bombs. Eggs, sausage, cheese, and avocado without any guilt? That’s a great way to start any day.

Denver Style Potato Skillet With Turkey Ham

Quite possibly the best option on this list, this hearty skillet is from the experts at My Alli. Packed with turkey ham, potatoes, peppers, and cheese, it’s sure to make you full and ready for anything your day has coming at you. Best of all, with only 10 grams of fat and a whopping 24 grams of protein, this may well be the healthiest and tastiest meal you have this week.

Chickpea Flour Omelet With Asparagus

What better way to start your day than with a hearty omelet? But why settle for the run-of-the-mill egg mix when you can go egg-free and not sacrifice the high protein or flavor with this option from Fat Free Vegan? This vegan recipe packs in 14.6 grams of protein and just five grams of fat! Best of all, don’t expect any greasy flavor or texture. Because they’re made with chickpeas, these omelets are all flavor and no filler and have a similar texture to a flatbread.

Spinach Ricotta Quiche

A lot of people will tell you that quiche is not a healthy breakfast option. Don’t talk to those people anymore — you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life (or maybe keep talking to them and tell them about this healthy breakfast quiche)! This Spinach Ricotta Quiche from Skinny Taste delivers 12 grams of protein, 13 grams of fat, and so much taste per serving that you’ll be tempted to eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

Farmer's Breakfast

The biggest misconception you can have about losing weight or just trying to be healthy is that you should starve yourself to see results. Real results come from living a healthy lifestyle that promotes eating the right food and being active. A great example is this amazing Farmer’s Breakfast dish from My Alli. You definitely aren’t starving yourself with this meal, which has eight grams of fat and 21 grams of protein. Enjoy a meal like this while taking Alli, and for every five pounds you lose through diet and exercise, you could lose two to three more (when used as directed)!

Basil Vegetable Strata

All the savory flavor of brunch without any of the guilt — where do we sign up? This Basil Vegetable Strata from Taste of Home is sure to become one of your favorite meals. With its 13 grams of fat and 24 grams of protein, you could really eat this meal any time of the day or week, so don’t feel like you’ve got to push it to the weekend or the morning.

Stuffed Bagel Balls

Bagels on a healthy breakfast list? Your dreams are coming true! In fact, these Stuffed Bagel Balls from Skinny Taste are as healthy as any other meal on this list — all while being possibly the most satisfying to anyone cutting carbs. The best part is each two-bagel-ball serving has only three grams of fat and 10.5 grams of protein! Go ahead and pack a few more for the road — we aren’t judging (and you’ll still be staying on track to getting healthy).

Losing weight can be difficult. Even when you’re doing the right things, you may not see results as fast as you’re hoping to. Don’t throw in the towel! Keep doing what you’re doing: eat right, exercise, stay positive, and consider adding a product like Alli — the only FDA-approved over-the-counter weight-loss aid — to your regimen for even better results.
