Start the day with some autumn vibes with this easy pumpkin protein yogurt bowl, which is high in protein and low in carbs.
If you are try to lose fat on your body, or build or maintain muscle, the most important macronutrient to eat is protein. After eating keto for quite a while, I found it a little tough to go from watching every carb to ensuring that I hit my protein goal everyday. Hitting those protein goals has made a bit difference in my body composition as well as my keeping my hunger at bay during the day.
One thing that I found the most helpful to regularly hit that protein goal is to make the first meal of the day a high protein meal. I don’t always call my first meal breakfast, because I still intermittent fast. Well, maybe not everyday, but I don’t force myself to eat breakfast if I’m not hungry.
Tip: To help hit that protein goal, make your first meal of the day high in protein.Jessa – lowcarbdelish.com

The snickerdoodle flavor protein powder is MRE Lite by Redcon1. I really like this powder because it’s made with a blend of different kinds of whole food proteins. The label mentions beef, pea, brown rice, chicken, egg, and salmon proteins and this product does not contain whey protein.
They also have a Banana Nut Bread flavor that when mixed with Greek yogurt tastes like banana bread batter. It’s so delicious!
If you would rather use a vanilla flavored protein powder, you can do that as well. My favorite is the Quest Vanilla Milkshake whey and casein protein powder. Just add a little bit more pumpkin pie spice to get that yummy flavor!
