Tired of chicken and protein shakes? Here are some ways to add more protein into your diet without boring your taste buds!
5 ounces of shrimp yields about 31 grams of protein! KA-POW!
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 is not only a great source of carbohydrates, it also has 8 grams of protein per cup! Not bad!!
1 can yields anywhere between 12-20 grams of protein.
Lentils have a ton of protein (1/2 cup is 26 grams!). Also perfect for a vegetarian in need of some protein!
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!
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.
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!
