A healthy body is one which is endowed with all essential nutrients. Protein is one of the most important macro-nutrients that must be consumed in abundance. Proteins are required for maintaining the strength of bones and muscles, and are also good for skin and hair. The nutrient is also known to aid weight loss as it generates a sense of satiety. It is widely proposed to have protein-rich breakfast every day as protein also carries the ability to empower the body and mind with energy and vigour. For this reason, egg is such a popular food that is consumed day after day by scores of people.
Egg is always the safest option as it can be turned into a variety of dishes for breakfast. But, those who strictly follow a vegetarian diet may have to abstain from it. For them, soya can work as a great plant-based protein substitute. As per the nutritional data compiled by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 100 grams serving of soya chunks or soya granules contain a whopping 52.4 grams of protein.
Whether you are a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian, pick soya to enrich your breakfast diet. Here are four soya breakfast recipes that you can try at home.
