How is daylight savings time treating you? Are you feeling tired? Having trouble getting up in the morning? Weirded out by the fact that it’s still kind of light out at 7pm? ME TOO.
This is why we all need these make-ahead high protein vegetarian breakfasts. Because, first: make ahead. Let’s be real, no one’s in the mood to make a decent breakfast in the morning right now. You can make all of these recipes in advance, when you’re not half asleep, keep them in the fridge or freezer, and grab them in the morning.
And second: high protein. Because when you’re tired, it’s easy to make bad food choices when you’re feeling hungry. Protein fills you up and keeps you satisfied all morning–which means those doughnuts in the breakroom are way less tempting.
With a crust made from almond flour, sunflower seeds, and Parmesan, this quiche packs in even more protein than usual–and it will last in the fridge all week long too.
