Banana Oat Pancakes
Breakfast is your prime opportunity to start the day right. And adding protein and vegetables to your plate may be your best bet when it comes to staying satiated throughout the morning.
However, you have to be picky about your protein sources. Instead of stacking a bacon, egg and cheese, reach for plant-based proteins more often. Why? A study that followed over 70,000 adults found that replacing red meat or processed meat with plant protein is associated with lower total, cancer-related and heart-related deaths, according to the August 2019 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine (JAMA).

If eating more plants is linked to a longer life, why not wake up to these hearty breakfasts that star plant-based proteins for all-day satiety?
|Quinoa and Black Bean Breakfast Bowl |
Black beans for breakfast? You bet. Getting your day started with these iron- and protein-packed superstars will fuel you until lunch thanks to their stellar fiber count. Just a half-cup of black beans will give over 7 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein. This black bean and quinoa combo packs a grand total of 12 grams of fiber and 15 grams of quality protein and is a low-sodium, high nutrient option for breakfast.

Including a variety of grains and healthy fats in your diet will help increase your nutrient intake and keep you satisfied longer preventing you from overeating or making poor food choices later on. In one study, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated reduced activity in the portion of the brain making food demands for several hours following that first, protein-heavy meal.
Lastly, a balanced breakfast can stabilize your blood sugar and set you up for healthy eating throughout the day.
