    • Protein For Breakfast!

    • Don’t have enough time for eggs Benedict in the morning? Try these quick and delicious recipes from Rockettes nutritionists that pack the protein punch and fit in the time crunch.

      Protein lets you kick. It lets you jump. It lets you run, twirl, bike, swim, and heck, even just get your body out of bed in the morning and into the shower. In short, protein equals energy and your body needs plenty of it throughout the day—we Rockettes rely on it. So why not start with breakfast?

      As much as we’d all like to begin the day with a luxurious eggs benedict, most of us just don’t have the time. So, try one of these creative and quick recipes to work some delicious protein—and lasting energy—into your morning meal. You’ll be glad you did.
