What is a protein breakfast and is it really that important?


Marija Đurković

We often hear that protein breakfast is very important, but what exactly does this phrase mean? And do you really have all these wonderful health benefits? We asked nutritionist Marija Đurković the answer to these questions.

Breakfast has long been the most important meal of the day, and you need to wake up and eat in the first half hour. I have to let you down and say that it is no more important than other meals during the day. Each meal has its own purpose. But of course, that doesn’t mean you have to skip breakfast. It’s important to eat something that will give you energy throughout the day.

Choosing breakfast depends on the person. Some will eat oats or polenta, while others will eat eggs or sandwiches. Of course, the advice is that every meal should contain protein, as they are important to satisfy after a meal.

Protein-rich foods include eggs, low-fat dairy (cheese, yogurt, kefir, sour milk (), seeds, turkey, chicken breast, tuna, sardines, smoked salmon (

The meal you plan to eat with these foods will be high in protein – protein breakfast.

But in addition to the source of protein, it is important to add a source of fat: olive oil, nuts, seeds, avocados …

Then you need a source of carbohydrates: whole grain bread, millet, polenta, oatmeal, quinoa, buckwheat and the like.

All in all, it’s a great meal and a nice breakfast to start the workday.
