If you’ve ever tried watching what you eat or any kind of diet, then you know that feeling full is key to success. The key to feeling full is protein, and a good high protein breakfast is how to get your day off to a good start.

You could eat protein bars or shakes, of course, and I’ve definitely succumbed to those kinds of things when I was much busier and didn’t have time to make a good breakfast. But you know, a protein bar is just not as satisfying as sitting down to a real meal.

A breakfast like this, however, is the best. It’s got everything you want to start your day: Vegetables? Check. Protein? Check. Deliciousness? Double check. The deliciousness comes from a delicious seasoning and quick toss in Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil and lemon juice. Oh, and bacon. Bacon always makes everything delicious.

The seasoning I used for this particular dish is the Ava’s Favorite Burger Seasoning I got from my spice subscription. I just sprinkled a tiny bit on when it was all put together, and it added the perfect savory note to this. It’s heavy with notes of garlic and pepper and definitely has uses other than just burgers!

This meal is Paleo and keto friendly, doesn’t take long to prepare, and will fill you up until lunch time, guaranteed.
