Shift your metabolism into high gear with well-balanced and delicious breakfast options that will help make anyone a morning person.
Start your day off right with these protein-rich, flavor-packed recipes that will help fuel your workouts or kick-start your recovery pronto. “Breakfast is the first interaction your internal body and metabolism have with the outside world,” notes Leith Hill, owner and founder of Ellary’s Greens, a New York-based restaurant and take-out chain that serves up high- quality, nutrient-dense ingredients in all of its dishes. “It’s the time of day that your body burns calories and processes food for the first time, and the most quickly—which means what you eat for breakfast has a lasting impact on the rest of your day.”
The recipes here, created exclusively for Hers readers by Hill and the staff at Ellary’s Greens, are well suited for days when you’re in a rush and need to grab and go, but there are also options for a more leisurely weekend brunch. Either way, they combine greens, grains, and proteins to help provide a balanced, slow burn that will set you up right whether you’re off to work, the gym, or just need the right mix of fuel to conquer your day.
