As we age, we need more protein in order to stay strong and independent.

But, the internet can be a confusing place when it comes to getting accurate information.

Research shows that protein tissue accounts for 30% of whole-body protein turnover but that rate declines to 20% or less by the age of 70.

A good rule of thumb is to shoot for 20 grams of protein at each meal.

So, how can we get 20 grams for protein at breakfast?

It’s easier than you think.

3 eggs + 1/4 C cheese =23 g

2% Plain Greek Yogurt = 20g

1 C Oatmeal + 1/4 C milk = 20g

1 Scoop Protein Powder = 18-35 g

Cottage Cheese = 20+ g

Chia Pudding = 18 g

Share how YOU get 20 grams of protein.  I love hearing from you and learning new ideas!

  1. Hey Sharon!

    Thanks for sharing – breakfast is always tough….everyone is so busy these days. I love the idea of ending the day together with something sweet:)

  2. I appreciate you sharing these numbers! I’m trying to get more protein. I’ve been making a protein smoothie for my husband and me. It’s a great way to end our day. I don’t do it for breakfast, but we enjoy a sweet treat together at the end of the day!!
