11 Ways To Add More Protein To Your Diet

Are the things you're eating not keeping you full? Do you want to reduce your overall calorie intake?

If you answered yes to either of the above questions, maybe you should consider increasing the amount of protein you're taking in.

Protein isn't just for building muscle. By adding more protein-packed foods to your diet, you'll feel full longer, repair muscle and cut back on calories.

Below are 11 simple ways to add more protein to your diet.

Protein Powder

First thing's first—start your day right. Make yourself a protein shake. It's the quickest way to satisfy your hunger when time isn't on your side. You can even throw in an egg white for an extra boost.

Cheese

Add cheese to your salads and burgers. Sprinkle some over your scrambled eggs, too. If you want the most out of it, use whole milk cheese.

Eggs

They're nature's number one nutrient. Eggs are loaded with protein. You can eat them scrambled (with cheese), over easy or hard boiled.

Milk

Switch to whole or soy milk. Not only will you get more protein but it's also a much fuller taste.

Jerky

Mango Habanero Beef Jerky and Hickory Smoke Turkey Jerky

Don't settle for just any jerky. Look for high quality cuts made with 100% grass-fed beef and turkey raised with no antibiotics. Our jerky is made with real ingredients so you won't get all the extra sugar.

Unsalted Nuts & Seeds

Throw in some pumpkins seeds, almonds, cashews, pistachios or hemp hearts into your salad next time. If salads aren't your jam, go for a protein bar made with nuts as one of the first ingredients or make your own trail mix.

Greek Yogurt

Not all yogurts are created equal. Greek yogurt is known for packing a protein punch. Kick it up a notch by throwing some nuts in.

Lean Meats

When you're looking for a steak, pick the leaner cuts like filet mignon, top sirloin and flap steak. You can also go with a turkey or chicken breast. These have more protein and less fat.

Legumes

Mmm...bean and cheese burritos. Lentils, chickpeas and soybeans are just a few different types of legumes that are a great source of protein. Put them in your salads and you won't be disappointed.

Nut Butters

Spread some of your favorite nut butter on your fruits and vegetables. Our favorites are: celery dipped in peanut butter and apple slices with peanut butter. If you're feeling nostalgic, go the PB & J route. Just make sure you double the peanut butter.

Fish

Salmon, tuna and sardines are just a few types of fish you can get your protein from. You can even go the canned or sushi route.

Don't Stop There
