So you’ve got your lunch and dinner sorted with MACROS and prepped some healthy snacks, but what about that all important first meal of the day – breakfast? We’ve got you covered – we asked some of our favourite MACROS influencers how they fuel themselves in the morning.
From bodybuilders to budding Olympic athletes, PTs to models, here’s what our MACROS legends eat for breakfast.
“Scrambled eggs! They are quick and easy and packed full of protein to start my day of right! Usually with some smoked bacon on the side for extra tastiness!” – @chelseafinn_x
“So for the first meal of my day, I choose a fast meal to cook and with fast absorption for my carbs and protein, so I cook oats and protein powder, simple and efficient! Or sometimes just eggs, like 8 egg whites and 2 whole eggs.” – @david_roig_coaching
“My go-to [breakfast] is cooked oats with a scoop of protein, banana, blueberries, raspberries, peanut butter and sugar free maple syrup.” – @gussgroves
“I like making a breakfast smoothie with half a cup of Oats, a banana, a scoop of protein, 5 almonds,handful of spinach, spoon full of peanut butter and a spoonful of honey.” – @nicccj
“Protein oats and [an] egg white omelette! Egg white omelette is just a nice lean protein to eat to get my day started [and] since I’ve got a big sweet tooth, [protein oats] helps me get my sweet cravings out of the way in the morning and the oats itself also helps me stay full.” – @jeff_lumapas
[Breakfast is] a tough one! For bulking [I’ll have] 1 cup of oatmeal with low fat milk covering the top. Followed up by 8 egg whites [and] 3 whole eggs on two slices of toast. And of course a cup of coffee. Currently [as I’m] cutting [weight, I’m having] 3 whole eggs on 2 slices of toast with a coffee” @chriseldridge_
“Homemade protein pancakes with banana, maple syrup and berries! It’s got everything in need for a good 1000 cal breakfast – good protein, fats and carbs to get me going through the day! And it’s super delicious!” – @dalton.ford
“[My] go to is something I have every morning… It’s a shake [made with] a shot of espresso, ice, 300ml water, 300ml lite milk, 1 scoop of collagen, [and] 2 scoops of protein. [It’s a] nice little way to get some protein into your morning routine.” – @adrian__fowler
“[As I’m in] cutting phase now it’s either chicken and rice or sweet potato. Weird but it’s just a carb source because I train in the mornings after work. [During] normal time I would say scrambled eggs or something along those lines on a burrito. Bulking [phase] would be eggs, bread, steak or chicken… My day [generally] revolves around eating to fuel my training.” – @jessekellypt
Omelette every day! [I make it with]3 eggs, 2 egg whites, a handful of spinach, a pinch of feta and chilli flakes, [served] with half an avo. High protein, delicious and takes 5 mins.” – @bradleggett
“I love egg white omelette with spinach. Or if I am in [a] rush, #mumlife, then a protein shake with almond butter and almond milk or grilled salmon and asparagus.” – @alisam_fit
“My usual breakfast is a BIG omelette with a side of oats. I feel like it’s the perfect protein to carb ratio breakfast which is high in volume. I believe when you are eating clean the most important meal is the first one as it sets the precedent for the day!” – @giange94
“Definitely oats with a scoop of protein…and a serving of fruit like banana, blueberries, or strawberries! Quick, easy, and gives me the fuel I need to get through the morning!” – @pauliemerciadez_
“[It] depends where I’m at with training. If I have super early morning [I’ll have] vegemite and avo on toast, but if I have time to make breaky [I’ll have] avo eggs bacon & spinach.” – @abbtadd – check out our Q&A with this pro hurdler/sprinter/our dream Swolemate for some more inspo.
“A smoothie is normally my go to. It’s tasty, super quick and a convenient way to pack in vitamins and minerals, plus a good hit of protein and some carbohydrates. I normally go for half a banana, some blueberries, spinach, protein powder, toasted coconut, some cinnamon and almond milk.” – @melissahickey18
