So I want to share a two high protein breakfast options. The first is skyr. Skyr is a traditionally Icelandic dairy product, the consistency is kind of like yogurt and it has a fresh, slightly sour taste to it. It’s low in fat and high in protein so it’s perfect for my diet although it’s definitely not paleo so I guess i changed my mind again. I had this for breakfast a couple of days ago topped with fresh strawberries and muesli. Then there is quinoa. Quinoa is a South American seed that, like skyr, is high in protein and quite low in calories (and not paleo either). For my breakfast today I made quinoa porridge which I then topped with the muesli and blueberries.

Quinoa porridge with blueberries, homemade muesli and honey.
The muesli was homemade it was quite easy here is the recipe.
Buckwheat flour 25 g
Chopped hazelnut – 50 g
Chopped brazil nut – 50 g
Linseed – 20 g
Oats – 25 g
Coconut oil – 2 ts
Cinnamon – 2 ts
Honey – 2 ts
1. Put cooker on medium heat, add oil.
2. Add the flour, this step is making the crumble.
3. Add oats, nuts and cinnamon shortly after and allow it to brown as much as you like.
4. Add honey and linseed.
This can be used as topping for anything you want. Needless to say any type of flour and any combination of nuts work. One could also add dry fruits and berries, whatever you like.
