5 Portable High Protein Breakfasts {Gluten Free}

As a WAHM (work at home mom), I have the luxury of making most of what I eat on demand.  This results in needing to do little to no food prep for the week.  As long as my fridge is stocked with fresh, healthy ingredients, I am usually good to go. 

That being said, as someone who has food allergies and intolerances up the wahzoo, I tend to need to be prepared to whip up something that I can take with me on the go, especially when it comes to breakfast.  

I really do try to make and eat as much as I can from scratch (my belly tends to stay pretty happy that way) but in the rare cases where I need to have something pre-made and ready to grab, I rely on these quick, easy and healthy recipes to take with me. 

The instances I am talking about are meetings (sometimes) but most of the time, they are races (I live in the middle of nowhere so always have to drive) which means that they have to be extra belly friendly – AKA no dairy, gluten or soy.

Here are my five favorite go-to recipes!

5 Portable High Protein Breakfast Recipes {gluten free, dairy free, allergy friendly} 

Black Cherry Protein Parfait

Black Cherry Protein Parfait - both vegan and gluten free , it's the perfect allergy friendly way to refuel to help you recover faster.

This dairy and gluten free Dark Sweet Cherry Protein Parfait is easily assembled in a mason jar the night before you need to go so you can grab it and refuel with it by the spoonful after a hard workout or run.
