While breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, very few people stress about the importance of proteins in breakfast. Having a protein rich first meal of the day means you will feel fuller till lunch time, your blood sugar will be regulated and you will have higher energy levels. And even if it’s not breakfast, our bodies need protein all day to build and repair tissues. Protein also helps reduce muscle loss and stabilize blood sugar levels. Sounds like a deal, right? But then if you are one of those who don’t have a flair for cracking eggs, McDonald’s has a few protein rich options for you.
Yes, whoever said you cannot get your dose of protein at McDonald’s could not have been more wrong. Here are five McDonald’s menu items that offer a decent amount of protein in every bite.
