Healthy Eating

10 Ways To Up Your Protein


  • Make sure you have some protein at each meal, whether that’s animal or plant based.


  • Broaden your protein shopping list to include spinach, almonds, Greek yogurt, hummus and legumes which are often overlooked.


  • Use some of the “clean” protein powders to add into morning smoothies.


  • Create your own protein bars at home that you can have as easy fuel after a workout.


  • Quality over quantity – make sure that your meats and eggs are organic and free range.


  • Include plant based proteins such as spirulina, nuts, seeds and quinoa.


  • Your best flat-belly bets are skinless white chicken or turkey, seafood, low-fat dairy, pork tenderloin, and lean beef.


  • Vegetarians can incorporate peanut butter on whole-wheat bread, or brown rice and beans, tofu, hemp seed and buckwheat.


  • Snack on sunflower seeds, chickpeas, edamame beans, and unsalted peanuts.


  • Cook a batch of chicken or turkey at the weekend and add it to meals throughout the week for a quick protein hit.
