Often the key to a great day is starting off on the right foot. Get good sleep, maybe sip a cup o’ Joe, read the paper, and have yourself a protein rich breakfast. Sounds like a pretty good morning, huh? And the best news is, you don’t have to go heavy on the ham and eggs to get a healthy protein breakfast. Unbeknownst to many, there are some secret ingredients that can supercharge your morning meal… and our favorite is hummus!
As we’ve covered before, hummus is well known among protein foods for breakfast, or for any other meal. Thanks to its healthy ingredients, hummus can contain anywhere from 2-5 grams of protein—which may not sound like a ton, but it can definitely replace the bacon when you’re aiming for the all-around best protein breakfast! And if you’re vegan or vegetarian especially, it’s super important to make sure you’re getting enough muscle-making munchies… so hummus is a quintessential part of your protein packed breakfast.

Whether you want a top notch meal to sit down and enjoy, or a high protein breakfast on the go, hummus is a key ingredient. Delicious in its traditional form or in any of its tasty new flavors, hummus is one of those high protein breakfast foods that can bring your day-starter to the next level. Want to see how?
