Something I need to get better at is giving my body more nutrients, especially protein. Currently, here are my top 5 high protein snacks/meals:
5. Fruit/yogurt parfait: One cup plain greek yogurt, handful of blueberries, and strawberries, and a drizzle of honey. (15 grams protein, on average)
4. Beef Jerky: Every package is different for amount of protein/etc, but usually a serving is about 10 grams of protein. Eat more, and you get more protein. Great salty snack.
3. 2 Eggs: made any which way, about 14 grams of protein!
2. Cottage Cheese and canned peaches: Add a little of the juice and it tastes great. One serving of cottage cheese adds about 10-15 grams of protein depending on type/brand.
1 Peanut butter and banana in oatmeal. Very filling meal, and the PB adds 5-7 grams of protein. You can add a scoop of protein powder to really bulk it up and add another 20-30 grams of protein.
I’m still learning about other ways to get my protein to keep it exciting. I’ll re-post when I learn more on the topic 🙂
