Eating breakfast is good for you, but eating a breakfast with a boost of protein is even better. Protein-rich foods help to keep you fuller, longer, so you’re less likely to overeat later. And protein is essential for building and maintaining valuable calorie-burning muscle mass.
Van’s Protein waffles are among the highest-protein waffles on the market, with 10 grams of protein per two-waffle serving – about what you get in one and a half eggs.
Most waffles, however, just have about half that amount, so we’ve put together five interesting ways to pile more protein onto your favorite waffle.
IngredientsPeanut Butter, Greek yogurt,
Combine a quarter-cup of powdered peanut butter (e.g. PB2) with a pint of plain, low-fat Greek yogurt, and mix until well-blended and smooth. If you like it a little sweeter, add a packet or two of low-calorie sweetener of choice, to taste. Top your favorite whole grain waffle with a quarter-cup dollop, and save the rest for later. Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to five days.
