Well that’s a loaded question. First let me say that the typical high protein food is not heart healthy, it’s usually high fat, which is sugar’s best friend.  So we have to dig deeper into the question without a rote response for a particular product. Heart healthy means having good fats, 'high protein' means amino acids that are readily absorbed, high fiber means a combination of soluble fiber and insoluble fiber, low- carbohydrate means good complex carbs rather than simple sugars, sugar free is obvious no sugar added and no artificial sweeteners, and it has to be quick and easy.

That being said, look for a pure whole soy, no soy isolates, all natural health drink with FOS fiber to which you can add some fresh fruit and throw in a blender for breakfast that takes 1 minute to prepare and is quick to consume.
Breakfast being the first meal of the day, helps the body gain its fuel to last it for the entire day. All the more, did you know that skipping breakfast can lead to obesity? Breakfast keeps us in good shape and teenagers, who eat breakfast regularly, actually weigh less and are healthier, than those who skip it.

Scrambled eggs are great- I use 1 egg and 2 egg whites, add some cooked vegetables (broccoli, mushrooms) a little low fat cheese.

Oatbran is high in fibre- I top mine with cottage cheese or fat free Greek yogurt for extra protein. Not low carb, but definitely healthy and nutritious. I often cook the oatbran with pumpkin and cinnamon for additional nutrients.
