there a way to protect the MOSFETs from saturating using resistors or capacitors?
Due you are under development stage, I suppose you are using a DC regulated power supply, with limit current protection, wright ?
That´s the standard procedure, and if the case, there is no need to do that you are asking.

A poorly regulated power supply combined with the Brown-Out Reset (BOR) active can cause the device to repeatedly reset, essentially suspending device operation.

You didn't tell a specification of voltage accuracy.
If you can live with the accuracy of a transistor voltage follower (-2 mV/K temperature coefficient) and poor load regulation, you don't need a voltage reference. Dividing a regulated power supply should be sufficient.

I guess this is happening during chip power up. When the VCC is ramping up, internal regulator is not enabled. So the VCC will be connected to the bandgap.
After that, you want to hot switch the bandgap from VCC to your regulated voltage source.
Big "back to back switch" can help you to do the switching. It can eliminate the forward bias in

While the output DC current should not exceed 1.0-1.5 A for 7805 to regulate (and the appropriate heat sink should dissipate the heat), measure the INPUT voltage. It should not exceed ~32 V including any short peaks.
Measure the output current; if it exceeds 1.5A, use LM350 3A, 5V regulator, or, connect a 2N3055 power transistor as a current buffer

As the load VOLTAGE is regulated by the 5.1V Zener, you need to indicate load CURRENT. You can do it before the Zener, by making the LED a part of the dropping resistor. If the load current is larger than ~10 mA (most LEDs run at ~10 mA), then connect a shunt in parallel with the LED, to adjust LED current while leaving the Zener at its operation
