How to Sneak in Extra Protein

Tired of chicken and protein shakes? Here are some ways to add more protein into your diet without boring your taste buds!

Shrimp

5 ounces of shrimp yields about 31 grams of protein! KA-POW!

Greek Yogurt

8.5 ounces of Greek Yogurt packs 25.5 grams of protein. If you can’t stomach yogurt (like me!) it’s great to mix it into a smoothie bowl or protein shake!

Quinoa

Quinoa is not only a great source of carbohydrates, it also has 8 grams of protein per cup! Not bad!!

Tuna

1 can yields anywhere between 12-20 grams of protein.

Lentils

Lentils have a ton of protein (1/2 cup is 26 grams!). Also perfect for a vegetarian in need of some protein!

Asparagus

There’s a reason you see body builders eating so much asparagus, it’s because there’s 4.5 grams of protein per cup. Perfect side with chicken or shrimp!

Sunflower Seeds

Whether you put them on a salad or eat them alone as a snack (no shells!) Sunflower seeds are about 6 grams of protein per ounce.

 

 

Edamame

Not just the latest fad anymore! Edamame has become a staple for people living a healthy lifestyle, with roughly 18 grams of protein per cup!
