A healthy breakfast starts your day off right!
Studies show that people who eat the wrong food for breakfast or skip breakfast all together, have problems with hunger, energy, metabolism, concentration and are more likely to gain or have trouble losing weight.
A healthy breakfast should contain a balance of nutrients to keep both your brain and your body functioning best.
Breakfasts with both protein and carbohydrates are key. Read on to find out why.
Healthy Breakfast: Why You Need Protein
Every cell in your body contains protein. You can literally think of protein as your body’s building blocks. In order to build muscles, repair damaged tissues and perform optimally, your body needs a steady supply of protein.
And because protein is digested more slowly than carbohydrates, it gives you a steady supply of energy and helps to balance hunger, energy, and cravings all morning long.
Healthy Breakfast: Why You Need Carbohydrates
Your brain needs energy to function, and the way your brain receives this energy is from glucose. When carbohydrates are broken down in your body, glucose enters your bloodstream. This glucose is required to create enzymes and neurotransmitters that are essential to keeping your central nervous system functioning properly.
Skipping breakfast causes blood glucose level to drop, increases hunger and cravings, decreases energy, and can even put your body into a state of starvation. When your body is deprived of the nutrients it needs, your metabolism slows down and your body automatically burns fewer calories to conserve energy.
Want a simple and convenient way to get your protein and carbohydrates in one delicious breakfast? Take boring, plain oatmeal and turn it into a delicious protein packed meal with new Protein4 Oats by PEScience!
Oats are a great whole grain, low-glycemic, slow digesting carbohydrate. But they fall short when it comes to protein and taste. Many manufacturers have overcome the taste by adding lots of sugar…but we don’t want that!
That’s why I was so excited about the launch of Protein4 Oats.

This product is a brand-new, never before seen product to the health and supplement industry. While there may be high protein oatmeals on the market, I can tell you from personal experience, they definitely they fall extremely short on taste and texture.

- Peanut Butter & Honey
- Maple Brown Sugar
This flavored protein powder has been designed specifically to be mixed with oatmeal for an amazing taste and texture….I’ve never seen anything like it! Hurry and grab it before it’s gone!
Moms, you’re not the only ones who need a healthy breakfast of protein AND carbohydrates!
