Starting your day off with a protein rich breakfast can give you more energy to power through the day. Getting enough protein is important, but did you know that when you eat protein is just as important. Most Americans fall short of getting the 25-30 grams of protein before noon recommended by many experts.

Drinking an 8 ounce glass of milk is an easy way to start your day off right and help you get the amount of protein your body needs in the morning to keep you energized and feeling full longer. I like to have a glass of milk with a bowl of granola oatmeal and some fresh fruit. If I'm in a hurry I'll drink a glass before I head out the door and grab a banana to eat while I'm on the go. My mid-morning snack of plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese and a handful of almonds ensures I get 30 grams of protein I need before noon to start the day off right.

A lot of people tend to eat most of their protein in the evening instead of in the morning when your body needs it most. Many experts recommend spacing out your protein intake throughout the day to get all the benefits protein provides.
