Eating the right amount of protein at breakfast can increase feelings of satiety; helping you to feel fuller for longer, aiding weight loss and weight control, and making it easier to concentrate at work. Eggs are one of the best sources of complete protein, while cottage cheese or quark are the richest sources of protein of all the dairy products. For these reasons, French toast with cottage cheese can be a great way to start your day.
