As any breakfast enthusiast knows, the best way to start the day is with a delicious, power-packed meal like scrambled eggs or oatmeal. But as July temperatures rise, the idea of a hot breakfast becomes less appealing, which leaves few options for scoring that A.M. energy boost. Greek yogurt and protein smoothies are great in moderation, but can become lackluster when eaten every day of the week.
To help you switch it up without switching on the oven, we’ve rounded up a few protein-rich no-bake recipes that will keep you energized all morning. Take a look below.
