Protein Sources

Protein is found in nuts, seeds, beans and legumes. Legumes – peas, lentils and beans offer an inexpensive, and full of flavour protein rich alternative to meat. Protein is in eggs, yogurt, low-fat milk and cheese. Don’t forget that vegetables can be a source of protein, spinach is one of those.

Side Dishes And Snacks

Hummus and black bean burgers are great sources of protein. Then there is quinoa, a gluten free grain loaded with fibre and protein, use it to accompany stir fries or add it to salads for an extra dose of protein. With a little planning, it’s easy to incorporate protein into all parts of a meal.  Don’t forget about trail mix and sunflower seeds, throw in a handful of nuts or seeds to salads and stir fries to get some protein.

Protein Shakes

Shakes are another option, especially after a workout. Whey protein is great a protein source, try adding whey protein to your smoothie recipe. Many people enjoy their smoothie as a meal replacement or snack. If you don’t eat dairy, try protein powders that are made from hemp, brown rice, and pea protein.
