Raise your hand if this sounds familiar: you grab a granola bar or flavoured Greek yoghurt and a nonfat latte for breakfast in your rush to get to work, only to be starving by the time 10:30 a.m. rolls around. After all, who has time for an elaborate breakfast during the prework morning rush? The problem with these quick foods is that they are packed with sugar, causing your blood sugar to spike and come crashing down by midmorning. This leaves you feeling starving and reaching for more quick-energy foods, like the cookies in the break room or the candy from the receptionist's desk.
Avoid the midmorning hunger pangs by fueling up with some satiating protein in the morning. This protein porridge from MyProtein offers 31 grams of the important macronutrient and just 261 calories. It also has 3.5 grams of fat, 25 grams of carbs, 0.9 grams of sugar, and 3.4 grams of fibre. Plus, the individual pots make it super easy to take to work, fill with hot water, and enjoy right at your desk.
Unfortunately, it looks like the protein pots are only available in the UK, so we will be waiting with bated breath until they make their way over the pond to the US. In the meantime, you can order bags of MyProtein Instant Oats in vanilla, strawberries and cream, or unflavoured for 13 grams of protein, 390 calories, and 8 grams of fat.
