High Protein Breakfast: Chicken Pattie Recipe

At TSTMethod we’re a big fan of eating a high protein breakfast, and we recommend this to all of our clients, no matter their health and wellness goals. Amino acids (protein) are the key building blocks to health and lean muscle mass. As we age, we need to eat more protein as our ability to grown and maintain lean muscle starts to decline. Our ability to absorb high levels of amino acids begins also starts to slow down, and this impacts our hormones and therefore, our recovery. There are certain populations that need more protein than others, and you can read more about that here.

This recipe can be modified in many ways; this is just one example. You can use any meat such as chicken, pork, lamb, beef, or a mix. You can substitute the type of herbs, and you can use different flours. We recommend avoiding gluten and using tapioca flours, buckwheat flour, or even potatoes starch to hold the ingredients together.

What is a Sustainable Diet?

If you struggle with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a low-FODMAP diet might be better for you. If you have an autoimmune disease, you may consider an autoimmune protocol and avoid foods like grains, dairy and eggs.  If you have high histamine levels, you should eat a diet low in histamine. People who are suffering from thyroid issues should NOT be following a very low-carb-diet as insulin is required to convert T4 into the more active form of thyroid hormone T3.  A very-low-carb diet will slow down the production of insulin and decrease the T4 to T3 conversion and make matters worse.
