We cannot say it enough, breakfast is the most important meal to start the day on the right foot! This is why it is crucial to choose carefully what you are going to taste there, but above all to take your time. In fact, at the end of the night, the body begins to secrete cortisol and dopamine, making it possible to provide the energy necessary for you to wake up. However, these hormones require a protein supply to be secreted and to prevent them from using up the protein reserves of the body (the muscles). A balanced, protein-rich breakfast is especially important when you are not consuming meat! Protein as part of a vegetarian or vegan diet should represent around 15% of daily nutritional intake in order to avoid possible protein deficiency. Our editorial team then offers you a small weekly menu consisting of 7 vegetarian protein breakfast recipes to prepare for you every morning to start your day off right!
