Get Your Protein at Breakfast with Kashi

We are constantly reminded about the importance of eating a healthy breakfast not only for a good nutritional start to the day, but also because eating breakfast will better ensure that we won’t feel hungry during the morning. Protein is the best breakfast ally in fighting off hunger before lunch and it doesn’t have to be in the form of eggs and bacon—it can be found in your cereal, a more convenient and nutritious breakfast option.

In fact, one cup of Kashi GOLEAN has as much protein as one egg and one cup of yogurt! Eating a breakfast rich in protein will not only help you to stay fuller throughout the day, but may even help to lower your blood pressure.* I’m writing to suggest developing a feature on the benefits of eating protein for breakfast, along with easy-to-prepare, nutritious, protein-rich breakfast food recommendations, including Kashi GOLEAN cereals:

· Jumpstart your metabolism: The digestion of protein heats up your metabolism, allowing you to burn almost 40% more calories and fat than carbohydrates.
· Stay fuller longer: Eating protein at breakfast provides you with the sustained energy you need to stay alert and full throughout the morning—say goodbye to hunger pangs and unhealthy pick-me-ups before lunch.
· Ditch the skillet: Running late shouldn’t be an excuse for skipping a protein-filled healthy breakfast. Enjoy a bowl of Kashi GOLEAN Original, GOLEAN Crunch! Honey Almond Flax or GOLEAN Crisp! Toasted Berry Crumble for breakfast and keep your tastebuds and body satisfied with at least 9 grams of protein.
