P28 High Protein Bagels

You won't believe how full you feel after starting your morning with a P28 high-protein bagel. Made with whey protein isolate, these toasty treats pack 28 grams of energizing protein in just 260 calories. Slathered with some almond butter, this bagel is your growling stomach's worst nightmare. (P.S. Whey protein really is the best for building muscle.)

Kashi 7 Grain Waffles

Made with a blend of seven whole grains, including brown rice, barley, buckwheat, and oats, these nutritious waffles boast 24 grams of whole grains per serving—half of your daily recommended intake—and a whopping 7 grams of filling fiber.

The Health Benefit of a Nutritious Breakfast

Amid your hectic morning routine to get out the door, preparing a hearty, wholesome breakfast seems like a fantasy. Delicious as the bagel you opt to grab before walking into the office may be, it won't keep you satiated through lunch. Plus, paying more attention to what you eat for breakfast might take a little more effort (emphasis on little), but the rewards will be more than worth it. "Research shows eating a large breakfast with carbs, protein, and fat helps decrease the production of your appetite hormone, ghrelin, later in the day," says registered dietitian Laura Cipullo. "It takes your body longer to break down protein and fiber into amino acids than it takes the body to break carbohydrates into glucose." This will allow your body to feel full longer while also making sure not to spike or drop your blood sugar while food digests

Luckily, adding more nutrients into your morning mix doesn't have to mean giving up the starchy, carby foods you love. These indulgent breakfasts (yep, waffles and pancakes can be healthy) are infused with the nourishing nutrients you need, so you can get your a.m. healthy breakfast fix without missing your bodega bagel.
