Sausage and egg breakfast helps maintain glucose control

When study participants consumed high-protein breakfasts, they maintained better glucose and insulin control, than they did with lower-protein or no-protein meals.

Sausage and egg breakfast

Women aged 18-55 years old consumed one of three different meals; a pancake meal with three grams of protein; a sausage and egg breakfast skillet with 30 grams of protein; or a sausage and egg breakfast skillet with 39 grams protein.

Both protein-rich breakfasts led to lower spikes in glucose and insulin after meals compared to the low-protein, high-carb breakfast.

Both protein-rich breakfasts led to lower spikes in glucose and insulin after meals compared to the low-protein, high-carb breakfast. Additionally, the higher-protein breakfast containing 39 grams of protein led to lower post-meal spikes compared to the high-protein breakfast with 30 grams of protein.
