If you are anything like me, you usually don’t have time to cook yourself a hardy healthy breakfast every morning. I understand.. the struggle is real. I’d much rather sleep an extra 15 minutes than get up and make eggs in my kitchen.
But you must also know that I am a breakfast LOVER! I love eggs, I love breakfast, I love brunch, I love a hardy meal. Therefore, I do something sort of gross… I cook my eggs in advance and reheat them later. If this completely turns you off, I understand. For those of you who just gagged when you thought about re-heating eggs, you’d better just wake up early tomorrow to make this recipe in the morning. For those of you with no gag reflex..make this recipe tonight before you go to bed and reheat in the morning. You go get those extra 15 minutes of sleep. You go Glenn Coco!
This recipe is packed with protein and is sure to keep you satisfied until lunch! It packs in 18g of protein per serving and it’s only 180 calories. What this means to me is… I may just have 2 servings for breakfast 🙂 Yum!
You can buy Morning Star Spicy Black Bean burgers at Target and Walmart and probably any other grocery store (I get mine at Target). Here is what the box looks like.
Alright, Here is the ingredients list and the nutrition facts!
I told you this recipe will keep you full! In 180 calories you will consume 6g of fat, 7 carbs, and 18g of protein! That’s quite a bang for the buck if you ask me.. calorically speaking.
Current recommendations suggest that a person who is strength trained should consume about 1g of protein per kg of body weight. For example, if you are trained and weigh 130 lbs you may want to consume about 59g of protein per day. Sedentary individuals may only need to consume .6-.8g per kg of body weight. Protein recommendations differ depending on your training goal and the type of training you do.
