Those who help shape Hollywood’s most enviable figures know a lot about how to eat healthy, nutritious, energizing foods. We got celebrity trainers and nutritionists to spill their favorites for breakfast. Get 8 high-protein breakfast ideas.
A healthy breakfast should consist of a low-fat protein and a high-fiber carbohydrate and should contain as little sugar as possible, said celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak on People.com. Pasternak, who helps get stars like Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, and Jessica Simpson to look their best, continued, “Protein in your morning meal improves appetite control by reducing cravings and preventing overeating later in the day. My clients’ new breakfast addiction are my smoothies, featured in my new book The Body Reset Diet.”
“I’m not a big breakfast person,” admitted Ashley Borden, who has worked with Christina Aguilera, Natasha Bedingfield, Mandy Moore, and Ryan Gosling.

In a Nutribullet blender, Borden will add frozen strawberries, a teaspoon of Udos Oil, a scoop of Barlean’s Chocolate Silk Greens protein powder, half a banana, and 1/2 cup or so of chocolate soy milk or water. “This shake keeps it simple and yummy,” said Borden. “It allows me to get my essential fatty acids, protein, greens, and antioxidants all in one fell swoop!”
Michaels told SELF magazine that she makes sure to start her day with carbs to give her long-lasting energy. “Breakfast is usually whole-grain Ezekiel English Muffins with almond butter,” Michaels said. “And I eat two whole English Muffins, about 500 calories.”

I serve it with avocado on the side to create a healthy and scrumptious breakfast,” said fitness icon Denise Austin, whose latest DVD is Denise Austin: Fat Burning Walk. Austin’s healthy scramble provides a trifecta of energizing nutrients: protein from eggs, fiber from corn, and monounsaturated fats from avocado.
