If you’re a bit like me, you’re always on the lookout for new ways to naturally boost your testosterone levels. If so, you probably know how important your diet is in all this.
And that’s why in this short post, I’ll share 3 of my favorite, quick and easy testosterone breakfast ideas that will really kickstart your day.
These power-packed breakfasts are filled with testosterone-boosting ingredients that are proven to naturally raise your t-levels.
And the best thing about them? They are super easy to make, so don’t worry if you’re not a star in the kitchen.
Ready to give your body a morning boost?
1 – Coconut yogurt, pomegranate, and mixed nuts and seeds
This speedy breakfast bowl is tasty, easy to make, and guaranteed to give you a great boost in testosterone.
I use coconut yogurt here because research suggests that dairy milk may lower your testosterone levels. The healthy fats in coconut, on the other hand, have been linked to increased testosterone levels.
If you can’t get your hands on coconut yogurt you can just use another plant-based yogurt alternative, or Greek yogurt instead.
By the way, before using soy yogurt, you might want to read this article: Does soy reduce testosterone levels?
The main t-boosting ingredient is pomegranate. Several studies, such as this one, have shown that pomegranate intake can increase testosterone levels in men, and it has been linked to improving your mood by lowering levels of stress hormones such as cortisol.
On top of that, studies suggest that pomegranate juice may even improve men’s sexual performance.
Then to add some more t-boosting ingredients to your breakfast bowl you should add some nuts and seeds.
But before you just start chucking random nuts in your food you might want to make sure you get the right ones, as some nuts are actually bad for testosterone!
Some of the best testosterone-boosting seeds and nuts (that are backed by science) are brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, and pumpkin seeds.
Oh, and if you want to add a bit more sweetness, why not drizzle some honey over it? Studies suggest that honey may increase serum testosterone levels.
2 – Scrambled eggs with avocado
An absolute classic, this simple and tasty testosterone breakfast is packed with healthy fats and protein.
I know eggs have a bit of a bad reputation, and it’s true that you probably shouldn’t eat this breakfast every day of the week.
Nevertheless, there are a lot of health benefits to eggs as well. Eggs are a great source of protein, omega-3, vitamin D, and cholesterol.
And before you worry about cholesterol being bad for you, note that this is only when your cholesterol levels get too low or too high.
In fact, cholesterol is incredibly important for the production of hormones, including testosterone. Studies like this one, for example, show a link between higher cholesterol and higher testosterone levels in men.
So you might think twice before you write off all forms of cholesterol!
The second ingredient here is avocado, which is a great source of healthy fats.
It’s also packed with vitamin E and zinc, which both have been linked to testosterone, sex drive, fertility, and sperm quality.
Extra tip: Add some onion and garlic, and not just for more flavor. Both have been linked to an increase in testosterone levels. Another great t-boosting addition is spinach.
3 – Super smoothie
Last but not least this recipe for a testosterone-boosting smoothie.
All of these ingredients have been linked to testosterone production in your body.
Just throw all of the ingredients in your blender and drink up!
- 1 banana
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup of orange or grapefruit juice
- 1/4 cup of pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup of coconut yogurt (or any other type of yogurt)
- 4 strawberries
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/4 teaspoon of honey
The best thing about smoothies is that you can just keep trying out new versions as often as you like.
Why not try it with different fruits? Or maybe add some brazil nuts in there for some extra power?
