The Busy Girl’s Guide To Breakfast: 3 Gluten-Free, Vegan And Protein-Packed Recipes

Start your day right!

Too busy for breakfast? That old excuse just isn’t going to cut it anymore.
We now know that starting your day with protein is one of the best-proven ways to stay satiated longer and fuel your day with natural energy. The best breakfasts are clean, lean and packed with protein. Without enough protein your blood sugar levels can drop, leaving you more susceptible to making poor food choices throughout the day. Alright alright, you get it – but what’s a busy girl to do?
If there’s anyone that’s mastered the art of healthy living with a busy schedule it’s Elle Macpherson, co-founder of the premium elixir and supplement brand, Welleco. We’ve partnered with Welleco to share three easy ways to get all of the nutrients and clean fuel you need each morning with Welleco’s Nourishing Plant Protein. Formulated by nutritional doctors using 45 premium whole food ingredients – including organic sprouted brown rice and pea protein – it makes for an outstanding all-in-one vegan and gluten-free protein powder to power up your day.
We love that it’s not just any protein powder – Nourishing Plant Protein also includes digestive enzymes, pre and probiotics, b vitamins, all 9 essential amino acids and so much more to truly nourish you with one single scoop. Whether you prefer to quickly put together in the morning or set aside a bit of time to prep for the week in advance, setting your days up for success has never been more efficient or delicious!
