Finding Great Vendors For My Restaurant

When I opened my first restaurant, I realized that the food needed to be impeccable. Instead of worrying about food costs, I zeroed in on the best vendors and gave them my business. The rewards were incredible. Customers absolutely loved the food, and they just kept coming back. Five years later, my business is running strong, and I owe it all to those initial business relationships with vendors. Check out this blog to learn why food vendors are so important, and how to choose between multiple businesses. You never know, it could transform your restaurant for the better--so that you can protect your investment.

3 Protein-Packed Breakfast Ideas for Bodybuilders

by Simon Best

If you are looking to pack on muscle, then you understand the importance of getting enough protein in your diet. One common method is to drink whey protein shakes, but it's always important to eat real food and consider these shakes as supplemental only.

Breakfast is still a tricky meal for bodybuilders because mainstays of a high protein diet, like chicken, are more suited for lunch or dinner. This leads many bodybuilders stuck with bacon, which isn't the best thing to eat because bacon contains a lot of saturated fat and can lead to cancer.

That said, here are some healthy, high protein breakfast alternatives to bacon.

Greek Yogurt And Fruit

A cup of Greek yogurt has 20 grams of protein. The fruit doesn't add protein, but it improves the taste of the yogurt, plus it supplies fiber and vitamins. You should choose a plain Greek yogurt instead of one that has fruit. The fruit in most yogurts contains lots of sugar and ups the calories without providing you with much health benefit. It's better to add your own fresh blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or pineapple. If you really want something sweet with the yogurt, add some honey or maple syrup.

Granola With Pumpkin Seeds and Milk

The amount of protein in the granola will depend on the brand you get. Granola is basically oats, which have 11 grams of protein per cup. The oats are baked with honey or sugar and dried fruit is added. You should look for a granola that doesn't have lots of excess sugar. You might even want to make your own using raw oats, honey, and dried fruit and leave out the excess brown sugar.

In order to boost the protein of the granola, you should sprinkle pumpkin seeds over it. Pumpkin seeds are delicious and they are packed with protein; about 12 grams per cup. Finally, don't forget the milk. Milk has 8 grams of protein per cup.

Protein Pancakes

If you love pancakes, but really need protein in your diet, then you should definitely get a box of protein pancake mix. Unlike low-protein, carb-heavy regular pancake mixes that are made with lots of white flour, protein pancake mixes are made with protein rich ingredients such as oats, whey isolates, and even pea flour. What you end up with is a great tasting pancake that is packed with muscle building protein. Learn more about your options by contacting suppliers like Eat Naturall, LLC.
