It’s commonly said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Many people skip breakfast due to not enough time, although it really is an important meal.  After not eating all night your body needs fuel to run properly. If you do not eat it can make you feel weak, hungry, and low of energy. Not eating breakfast can also make it harder to lose weight since your body has not eaten since the previous day. It’s recommended to eat a high protein breakfast to restart your metabolism for the day, which in turn will help you lose weight better than if you skipped breakfast.

I would suggest for a high protein breakfast to eat one soft boiled egg, 4 stalks of asparagus, 1/4 cup gluten-free quinoa or brown rice, and a  sugar-free yoghurt or kefir smoothie. This breakfast would be high in protein, vitamins, grains, vegetables, and fruit. The perfect way to start the day which will keep you full until lunch time. This is also perfect for someone who does not have a lot of time to cook. This can be prepared in under 15 minutes.

Tip: I don’t own any egg cups which meant I needed to be creative when serving the soft boiled egg. I found some of our ice cream dishes, flipped it over, and used the base as the stand. It was easy, pretty, and frugal since there was no need to purchase anything.

Roasted asparagus with a soft boiled egg, perfect for a high protein breakfast when you don’t have much cooking time.
Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 4 stalks of asparagus
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Wash and dry the asparagus. The end of the asparagus, the tough end, is not any good. If you hold both ends of the asparagus and bend it, the tough part breaks off. Place in a pan and lightly drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, cook for 12-14 minutes. Boil a small saucepan of water over high-heat, reduce temperature to bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Add egg(s) to saucepan and simmer for 6 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water. Serve immediately with asparagus. Cut the top of the egg off with a sharp knife or break off with your fork.
