Below is a recipe for a high protein breakfast from Paula Puopolo, Co-Owner of Ocean Yoga. It is high-protein fuel for a very active morning, and if you know Paula, you know that she is extremely fit and always challenging herself. She recited this to me the other day, as, during our training session she pulled herself effortlessly up to the chin-up bar, and added, “I just leave it [cooking] and when I smell it burning I know it’s done!” Then she giggled.
Here is the recipe with a note or two from me. Notice that neither of us is giving you much specific instruction, so maybe you would like to play with it too, and leave a comment.
Heat an omelet pan, spraying first with PAM.
Add in sequence:
4 egg whites
1/3 cup Kashi “Go Lean” sprinkled evenly on top
¼ C finely chopped apple, sprinkled evenly on top
Cover and let cook “until you smell it burning” or until, when peaking at the bottom, you see it is browned and egg whites are cooked. (I actually flip mine for a little browning on the apple side.) Remove from pan and add, if you like, a tablespoon of sugar-free syrup, a drizzle (1.5 tsp) of honey, or some Agave nectar. (The apple top is moist and sweet.)
For a medium to strenuous physical activity you will be perfectly fueled and satisfied! (Plenty of protein from egg whites and Kashi, some whole grain carbs from Kashi, and low-glycemic energy from the apple.)
