Packing More Protein Into Breakfast with AllWhites Egg Whites {Recipe & Giveaway}

Breakfast is an important meal that I never skip. There are so many benefits of eating breakfast including higher energy levels, increased mental focus, better portion control throughout the day, metabolism boost and maintaining body weight. My struggle with breakfast is getting enough protein. I blogged about how important protein is as a part of my afternoon snacks last week and today I’m discussing how I’m trying to get in first thing in the morning to jump start my day. If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you’ve most likely noticed that I almost never eat eggs for breakfast despite how great I think they are for fueling not only for workouts but the day ahead. I lean much more in the direction of things like oatmeal and smoothies. Recently, I read an article on WebMD about incorporating lean protein into breakfast and it had me itching to get a little more serious about the nutritional makeup of my own breakfast.

Adding a little lean protein to your breakfast may be just the boost you need to help keep you feeling full until lunchtime. “Protein blunts your hunger the most, and is the most satiating,” Purdue University researcher Wayne Campbell, PhD, tells WebMD. And a traditional breakfast of eggs may be one of the best ways to get your morning protein. While eggs are not always associated with weight loss, they contain some of the highest-quality protein.

In a study presented at the 2007 Experimental Biology meeting, researchers at Pennington Biomedical Research Center compared weight loss in women who ate either two eggs or a bagel for breakfast. The two breakfast meals were identical in calories and volume. “Compared to the bagel eaters, overweight women who ate two eggs for breakfast five times a week for eight weeks as part of a low-fat, reduced-calorie diet, lost 65% more weight, reduced waist circumference by 83%, reported higher energy levels, and had no significant difference in their … blood cholesterol or triglyceride levels,” reports researcher Nikhil V. Dhurandhar, PhD.

Crazy, right?

2.13allwhites

I have been experimenting with AllWhites® egg whites to develop breakfast recipes that help pack more of a protein punch and today I have TWO egg white breakfast recipes to share with you. One is for those who struggle like me to eat eggs first thing in the morning and the second for savory breakfast lovers. AllWhites is a great source of lean protein and is a fat-free, cholesterol-free and low-calorie alternative to shell eggs.

2.13oatmeal2

First up, banana egg white oatmeal! When you add egg whites to your oatmeal it almost doubles the volume of the oatmeal and gives it a much fluffier and creamier texture. I know it sounds weird to add egg whites to oatmeal and I was skeptical when I first tried it but I can 100% assure you that there is absolutely no egg-like taste or texture, just a big pillowy bowl of banana oatmeal.

2.13oatmealpot

My method for making banana oatmeal is to combine all the ingredients except the egg whites in a small, heavy saucepan and let it cook over low heat for about 5-7 minutes. Once the oats get soft and the banana slices start to break down, I give it a really vigorous stir to fully incorporate the banana. Once you’ve done this you slowly pour in the egg whites and stir the mixture for about 3-4 minutes until the egg whites are fully incorporated the mixture fluffs up. The key here is to add the egg whites slowly over low heat so that they don’t cook right when they hit the pot. Scrambled egg banana oatmeal = no bueno.

2.13oatmeal

Of course always better when topped with peanut butter! Years ago when I first started this blog I tried the egg whites in oatmeal thing a few times but I always feel so bad about not using the whole egg when I cook with egg whites. AllWhites alleviates that concern for me because they sell all the egg yolks to food service companies for things like ice cream, mayonnaise, puddings and more.

Banana Egg White Oatmeal

1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup milk (skim, coconut, almond, soy)
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon dried cranberries or dried fruit of your choice (optional)
1/2 banana, sliced thin
Dash cinnamon
Dash salt
1/3 cup AllWhites Liquid Egg Whites (equivalent of 2 egg whites)

Combine oats, milk, water, chia seeds, cranberries, banana, cinnamon and salt in a small heavy saucepan and cook over low heat for about 5 minutes or until oats have softened and absorbed most of the liquid and banana begins to break down. Vigorously stir the mixture to fully incorporate the banana. Slowly add in egg whites and cook for another 2-3 minutes until mixture is fluffy and egg whites are fully incorporated. Yield: 1 serving

2.13muffintins

The second recipe is for easy egg white and veggie cups that you can pop in the oven in no time.

2.13eggsvertical

I whisked together AllWhites, spinach, roasted red peppers and artichokes and poured the mix into muffin cups. The result is a protein-packed, low-calorie, portable egg breakfast option.

2.13eggwhites

Spinach, Roasted Red Pepper, Artichoke and Feta Egg White Cups

Nonstick cooking spray
2 cups AllWhites
2 tablespoons nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 cup baby spinach
1/4 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
1/4 cup artichoke hearts, chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Spray a small saute pan with nonstick cooking spray and cook spinach, roasted red peppers and artichokes over medium heat until spinach is wilted and some of the liquid has cooked out of the peppers and artichokes. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg whites, yogurt, veggie mixture and salt and pepper to taste. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, pour egg mixture into prepared muffin pan. Sprinkle each cup with feta and bake for 20-25 minutes, until eggs are set. Run a knife along the edges to release from pan. Eat immediately or store in the fridge either individually wrapped or in a Tupperware. Reheat for 20-30 seconds. Yield: 12 egg cups.

    I’ve been eating oats with almond milk, almond butter, and a small drizzle of honey on it every morning for over a year now! The almond butter helps keep me full til lunch so I don’t snack so much while sitting at my desk all day!

    I usually have a Vega One smoothie. A nice plant based drink that gives me the protein, iron and greens I need. I feel like even if my eating goes badly later in the day at least I got in a good meal for breakfast.

    I have been eating almond butter toast with an apple and a latte. I think it does its job to keeping me full. But I do enjoy eggs on the weekends for a more savory breakfast : )

    Tamara March 3, 2014, 12:43 pm

    I like a balanced breakfast with both protein AND carbs, as well as some healthy fat. Some examples:

    2% plain Greek yogurt with berries and a bit of granola/nuts
    cooked oats topped with blueberries and cottage cheese
    oats cooked with egg (similar to how you described here) and topped with fruit
    overnight oats with added pea protein powder, chia seeds, and almond milk (plus: fruit!)

    I too, love oatmeal in the morning made with 1/2 a banana and a scoop of almond butter. It’s easy to eat at my desk at work. I’ve also added egg whites to my oatmeal to boost the protein. It definitely is a filling meal! I typically save the eggs/omelettes for the weekend.

    Courtney @ Fitness with a fork March 3, 2014, 12:46 pm

    I definitely do more protein packed breakfasts instead of carbs. If I ate oatmeal, I would be hungry again in 30 min! I almost always have eggs at breakfast and I love Allwhites! This morning I had one egg + Allwhites scrambled with pepper jack and spinach. Yum!

    I’m really bad about going carb heavy… I know it isn’t ideal but I don’t have a lot of time in the mornings and I get lazy. Those egg cups that can be cooked ahead of time and stored until you’re ready to eat them may be just the ticket for me!

    I love All Whites!! I go through about 2 large cartons per week. in addition to making oatmeal with them, I also LOVE using them to make protein pancakes. Also, I love making “egg pancakes”; which is just 1 cup All Whites with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice mixed in and then topped with a bit of maple syrup. Tastes just like French toast!

    Kelly D March 3, 2014, 1:05 pm

    I usually have cereal for breakfast, and some fruit and coffee. This is more of a carb heavy breakfast, but I do incorporate protein throughout the rest of the day, by eating peanut butter, fish or eggs.

    I wonder what your take is on processed foods? Is it not so much healthier to eat an egg versus these egg whites with all the added chemicals and weird stuff? What ingredients are listed on the back? Just wanted to see what you thought.

    my boyfriend is kind enough to make us breakfast before work on most days which is usually some version of eggs and berries or a “skinny muffin” which is a micro “muffin” made from almond flour, egg, etc. i used to eat a lot more oatmeal which i think seemed to keep me fuller longer, but lately i’ve been feeling better with lower carbs. the idea of egg whites in oatmeal intrigues me ! and coffee…there is always coffee : )

    I usually have a slice of ezikeal with nut butter prior to my workout and then after I have greek yogurt an egg white scramble with veggies. On days I don’t work out first thing I start with a bigger breakfast which is a carb, protein, fat combination. I have noticed that I have more energy in addition to staying full longer if I have protein at every meal, particularly breakfast and lunch. I’m intrigued to try both your recipes!

  • 24
    Jackie March 3, 2014, 1:12 pm

    All winter I’ve been leaning towards oatmeal mixed with fruit and nut butter for breakfast, and occasionally I’ll take the time to make eggs or an egg white omelette. The oatmeal with nut butter usually leaves me feeling full and energized for awhile, but I know a more protein-focused breakfast including egg whites gives me more energy for late morning workouts. I’m excited to try your recipes-I think the egg white-oatmeal combo might just the thing to get me back on track with protein earlier in the day.

  • 25
    Jennifer March 3, 2014, 1:14 pm

    I absolutely run best on a combination of carbs + protein. My current favorite is oatmeal with Greek yogurt and peanut butter. I will definitely try this egg white option!

    Hillary | Nutrition Nut on the Run March 3, 2014, 1:14 pm

    A healthy breakfast for me is usually a homemade bowl of oats with nut butter or a couple of homemade gluten-free almond meal muffins. I think it’s important to incorporate carbs, protein, and fat into your first meal of the day… but I guess mine are usually more carb heavy :)

    I am a sweet breakfast eater always – never want anything savory! However, I do incorporate egg whites lately into my breakfasts and definitely feel the difference! I add egg whites to my oatmeal and make two-ingredient pancakes. Still sweet but much more satisfying!

  • 31
    Laura March 3, 2014, 1:32 pm

    Previously, I would enjoy using AllWhites to increase protein, but I have since switched to organic egg whites in the carton or just using the whites from an organic egg. What are your thoughts about the necessity to use organic or not?

  • 32

    Ashley March 3, 2014, 1:35 pm

    Egg whites are always my go to! I like to use one whole egg (good stuff in the yolk too!) and increase the volume with a few tablespoons of egg whites. Serve scrambled or fried and on top of whole wheat toast!

  • 34
    Lindsay March 3, 2014, 1:35 pm

    I generally eat oats with chia seeds, flax, berries or bananas, cinnamon and brown sugar, with either almond milk or lowfat milk. have to say those egg cups look tasty though! have to try the egg whites in my oats too.

  • 35
    Kim @ FITsique March 3, 2014, 1:39 pm

    I eat egg whites every single day. No joke. i always start my day with an egg white omelet with nitrate free turkey bacon, spinach, and cheese, an over easy egg on the side, and a piece of toast with coconut oil and cinnamon on top. I look forward to this breakfast every single day and it gives me the fuel I need until I can eat a snack or lunch!

    I’m pretty repetitive, but generally don’t get sick up my breakfasts. I usually have a slice of Ezekiel toast topped with a thin layer of neufchatel cheese, 1/4 of an avocado (sliced) an one fried egg. Coffee with skim milk is also included. It’s so good!

    I travel a lot for work, so when I’m on the road it’s a Starbucks spinach/feta egg white wrap with a grande non-fat latte.

  • 40
    Haley March 3, 2014, 1:45 pm

    I try to combine a good mix of carbs and protein as well as some fat, especially since with high glycemic index foods (oatmeal, toast) adding fat slows the blood sugar spike. Often I have greek yogurt with homemade granola, peanut butter toast with fruit, oatmeal with peanut butter or egg white veggie omelet with fruit, I would like to try the egg white oatmeal because the amount of peanut butter I use does not have a huge amount of protein

  • 53
    Caitlin F. March 3, 2014, 2:07 pm

    Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. If I have time I’ll whip up some scrambled eggs with chopped peppers and spinach. Otherwise I’ll slice up a banana with some granola and almond butter. Another option if I literally have no time is a couple hard-boiled eggs whites (I can’t handle the texture of the hard-boiled yolks) with a spoonful of salsa and cheese. Interesting, I know, but it’s a quick way for me to get in some protein in the morning!

  • 77
    Mary March 3, 2014, 3:41 pm

    I stopped eating cereal and moved toward a protein-focused breakfast about a year ago and never looked back! I eat plain Greek yogurt every single day, and I never get tired of it! I often have a tablespoon of peanut butter, on the side, for some fat.

  • 79
    Taya March 3, 2014, 4:14 pm

    I always center my breakfasts around protein! Egg whites are actually the only animal product I eat…and I eat a lot of them. I stick to oatmeal with either egg whites or protein stirred in, egg white omelettes, or cold oatmeal with protein powder and a banana when I’m at the gym and lack a microwave.

  • 80
    Becky March 3, 2014, 4:17 pm

    I like to eat a protein filled breakfast or I get hungry by 10:00. Sometimes I am on the rush and just have to grab something quick and easy which tends to be carb heavy. If I have time I enjoy a nice healthy balanced breakfast with a mixture of carbs and protein. Heavy on the protein though!

    One of my staples for breakfast is an egg scramble burrito. I sauté whatever veggies I have on hand, add some egg whites and maybe some feta and goat cheese. Once it is all cooked I place it on a tortilla (usually whole wheat), slather with salsa and hot sauce. So yummy and filling!

    Thank you SO much for these recipes! I have never liked eggs, but I love oatmeal. My husband tries to get me to eat some of his scrambled eggs for more protein, but I just can’t do it. My oatmeal usually contains honey, mixed berries and some skim milk. I cannot wait to try the oatmeal plus egg whites!

    I’m up at 3am for work during the week (oh, the joys of television news!) so eating first thing is always rough. I’ve learned to break it down into separate portions so I’m not overloading so early. I’ll usually eat a handful of nuts or a granola bar when I get up, then something easy to grab on the go like Van’s waffles and heat them up a little later in the morning.

    I love breakfast the most out of any meal and most of the time I try to eat good. I like to have scrambled eggs, whole wheat toast, some hashbrowns and orange juice. I guess I eat more carbs for breakfast to help get me going for the day.

    For a couple of years, I ate a banana pancake (1 banana mashed with 2 eggs and cooked in a pan like a pancake) every morning, but lately I’ve been into 2 slices of toast or waffles, topped with pb and banana slices. Hits the spot every time!

    I ALWAYS crave carbs in the morning for whatever reason so instead of just having a big bagel I make egg sandwiches either open face on half a bagel or on whole wheat toast. This way I satisfy that carb craving but also pack in some protein with the egg. Plus I get to add some cheese because let’s be honest who doesn’t love cheese :)

    I’ve recently been experimenting with removing grains from my diet and have been enjoying this grain-free porridge which uses egg whites as a main ingredient: 1 banana mashed, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1 whole egg + 2 egg whites, 2 tbsp flaxseed, cinnamon to taste. Combine all ingredients in a bowl as you all a saucepan to heat on the stove. Lightly spray your saucepan with non-stick cooking spray (I used coconut oil and spread it around w a rubber spatula) add your porridge mixture and allow to cook for 3-5 minutes. Enjoy with fresh fruit, coconut flakes, chia seeds, honey, PEANUT BUTTER, or any topping of your choice.

    Breakfast is almost always plain oatmeal with strawberries, blueberries, and vanilla soy milk. (And coffee!) Lately, though, I’ve noticed I definitely could use some extra protein in the morning to get me through my 9 hour workdays and 2 workouts each day and have been adding 1-2 scrambled eggs and/or bacon (usually turkey bacon). Definitely prefer savory over sweet! I used to add protein powder to my oatmeal but got tired of the taste and texture. Never thought to add egg whites!

    I either start my day with a green smoothie or with an oatmeal and almond butter mixture. I try to plan around my workouts… if I need more carbs because I plan to do a big cardio workout, I’ll start with the oatmeal. If not, I’ll just do the smoothie. Either way, I make sure to pack the smoothie or the oatmeal with berries to get some vitamins and minerals to kickstart the day. I love that I can easily add greens to my smoothie. I’d love to add eggs more regularly to my mornings. Finding easier ways to add them is going to be soooo helpful. Perfect protein source! Thanks, Jen!

    I almost always have oatmeal for breakfast, the real kind (not the processed, fakey flavored stuff that comes in little envelopes). I’ve never tried adding egg whites to it though, so this post has me thinking. I know oatmeal alone doesn’t offer much protein so adding egg whites would make for a better all-around start to the day. I find when I eat oatmeal for breakfast I have more energy and don’t find myself snacking before lunch. Thank you!

    A high protein, low (not no!) carb breakfast keeps me fueled through busy (and active) mornings. More protein at my first meal also helps keep my hunger at bay and to preempt cravings later in the day. Breakfast for me is always a bowl of oats mixed with protein powder or egg whites, a veggie egg white scramble or a protein shake, in the summer months.

    I eat stove top old fashioned oatmeal with chia seeds, banana, almond milk and whatever add ins I feel that day! When I was tracking calories, I was shocked at the macronutrient breakdown with a large percentage coming from carbs then fats (thanks almond butter). To add more protein to my breakfast, I started adding pumpkin seeds, plain greek yogurt, or a spoonful of protein powder. This is my favorite breakfast because it keeps me full and fueled until lunchtime so I can reserve snacks for the afternoon and maybe an after dinner treat too! When I’m not hangry in the morning, I am much more motivated at the tasks I need to complete rather than being distracted by hunger only hours after breakfast.

    I crave carbs in the morning but feel so much better with protein. Egg whites in oatmeal sound really good.

    I have been eating oatmeal made with almond milk all winter and can’t wait to switch things up now that spring is here!

    Depending on how much time I leave for myself in the morning I either grab a protein bar, bowl of cereal, oatmeal or scrambled egg whites with whatever veggies I have in the fridge.

    I make sure I have a good mix of carbs, fats and protein. My go-to breakfast is oatmeal with cherries and egg whites stirred in, and coconut oil on top!

    I no longer fill up on waffles and cereal for breakfast. Now I eat 1/2 cup of plain oatmeal!

    Breakfast is always always overnight oats with strawberry jelly and almond butter!

    I count calories, watch fat intake, eat oatmeal on a regular basis and walk and then PRAY:)

    I love a good bacon, eggs and potato breakfast. Lots of good fat, protein and calories to get me through the day.

    I like scrambled eggs with diced tomatoes, onions, and any type of peppers. It give me a protein load with a spicy addition to get me in an exercise mood.

    Since All Whites are pasteurized, you can actually add them to your smoothie – or iced coffee – without worry. I have my two egg whites in my coffee every morning and am full until lunch. Turns my iced coffee (shot of instant espresso dissolved in water with heavy cream) into a protein drink!
