High-Protein Breakfast Recipes Provide Fuel for the Day

High-protein breakfast recipes can give you the fuel you need to take on the day — and post-op weight loss surgery patients especially need that extra dose of protein to stay healthy. In the latest episode of Eating Right Every Bite, Chef Dave Fouts shares two delicious breakfast recipes that are quick and easy to make. They’re designed for people who have had bariatric surgery, but perfect for anyone wanting to make a healthy start to their day.

Chef Dave High Protein OmeletFor most people, breakfast is either quick and sugary — that stale doughnut left over after your morning meeting — or heavy and slow, like the fat-laden breakfasts grandma used to make.

On this episode of Eating Right Every Bite with Chef Dave Fouts, learn to balance those extremes with two amazingly fast, easy and tasty breakfast recipes. First, for breakfast eaters on the go, Chef Dave shows you how to make a tantalizing breakfast pita that eats like a meal and travels like a pop tart. Then, he’ll show you how to make a lazy Saturday morning breakfast surprise for two, with his low-fat and high-taste omelet.

Both recipes mix fresh vegetables with long-lasting proteins to keep you feeling full until lunch without eating a lot. And, they can be made even more healthy using egg whites and olive oil, or changed up to include your favorite breakfast tastes, like fresh salsa or sautéed mushrooms.

And don’t forget Chef Dave’s quick mix hummus, which is the perfect take-with-you dip to eat with veggies or pita bread for a healthy snack between meals.

Chef Dave Fouts specializes in pouch-friendly meals that taste great for post-op patients of weight-loss or bariatric surgery. After his own weight-loss surgery in 2002, he became a chef consultant and now travels the country helping bariatric patients “eat right with every bite.” Click the link below the video player to print out a PDF of the recipes in the show!
