7 Meals You Can Eat For Breakfast To Keep You Lean & Gain Muscle

7 Meals You Can Eat For Breakfast To Keep You Lean & Gain Muscle

We all want to have our cake and eat it too. In a perfect world, we could eat soft; gooey, delectable cinnamon rolls drizzled with creamy sugar frosting, every morning, and meanwhile, retain a perfectly built six-pack of abs. That would truly be, “living the dream.” Fortunately for you, despite overindulging in delicious breakfast foods and the risk of gaining uncontrollable rolls of our own, there are tons of healthy breakfast food options that you can eat and still stay on track to the body goals you want to achieve. We’ll share a couple of our favorites to satisfy your cravings.

When you’re trying to stay lean and gain muscle mass, there are a couple of important things to remember before you prepare a delicious breakfast.

Number one; don’t overeat. Listen to your body and eat until you’re full. Don’t eat until you hate yourself and can’t move. That’s a quick and sure way to gain extra body fat that you don’t want and don’t need.

Number two; make sure you get a large amount of protein with your meal. Your goal should be around 25-30 grams of protein for breakfast.

Protein Pancakes With Vanilla Protein Frosting

No, I’m not kidding. Despite popular belief, you can now enjoy pancakes that taste great and that are actually good for you, absolutely guilt free. Here’s what you’re going to need.

  • PROFORM Whey Vanilla Isolate
  • Organic unbleached white flour
  • Salt
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Baking Powder
  • RESTORE – Glutamine, Kre-Alkalyn HYPERTROPHY (Optional)

For the complete recipe and how to make these mouthwatering silver dollar dreams, here it is.

Remember, you can also substitute or add ingredients to make these pancakes exactly how you want them such as (chocolate chips, banana, pumpkin, cinnamon, apples etc)    

Berry Vanilla Greek Yogurt Cobbler

Greek Yogurt is one of the best foods you can eat to help you lose weight and gain lean muscle mass. Not to mention, you get a breakfast that tastes like grandmas berry pie, that’s also packed full of probiotics to help your digestive system, immune health and cut body fat. It doesn’t get much better than that. Here’s what you’ll need. 

Eggs, Bacon, & Avocado

Simple, yet delicious, this staple basic breakfast is packed full of protein and healthy Omega 3 fats, to keep you lean and full of the nutrients you need to pack on muscle.

  • Organic Eggs
  • Three Strips of Bacon
  • Half an avocado

Blueberry Protein Oatmeal

 

If you’re thinking about the bodybuilding breakfast of eggs white and oatmeal, think again. Add a scoop of Vanilla or Chocolate Whey Isolate and your oatmeal will taste like a delicious bowl of oatmeal cookie dough. If you really want to optimize your gains, add some unflavored Glutamine to optimize recovery and Kre-Alklayn for increased endurance before you hit the gym.

Protein Peanut Butter Smoothie

Protein shakes are great, but unfortunately for breakfast a little bit of protein powder and water in the morning will only keep you full for so long. Add a few ingredients to turn your shake, into a power packed smoothie. 

  • PROFORM Whey Protein Isolate (Chocolate or Vanilla)
  • Almond Milk
  • Banana (Frozen preferably)
  • Carob Chips
  • Peanut Butter (or PB2)
  • 4 Ice Cubes
  • RESTORE – Glutamine, Kre-Alkalyn HYPERTROPHY (Optional) 

Steak & Egg Tacos

A lean cut of tender meat in the morning, drizzled with the sweetness of pineapple salsa, wrapped in a toasty whole wheat tortilla can make anyone’s mouth water. Throw some eggs for some added protein, or substitute the steak for chicken, or turkey. Whatever you prefer, you really can’t go wrong with this one.

  • 4oz sirloin steak
  • Eggs
  • Pineapple Salsa
  • Avocado
  • Black Beans
  • Corn
  • Roasted Salsa
  • Whole Wheat Tortilla 

Smoked Salmon & Protein Bagel

A bagel? I know, it sounds crazy, but hear me out. Pay attention to the nutrition facts on the back of a sourdough bagel and you’ll be in shock. Besides a large amount of carbs, you’ll also see a sizeable portion of protein. My personal favorite is from Sacramento Baking Company, which boasts a hefty 20grams of protein per bagel. Stack that with some fresh cut salmon and Greek yogurt protein cream cheese, and we’re talking 40 grams of protein and a solid breakfast of gains.
