“I didn’t know I was starving until I tasted you.”
If you’re anything like me there is a point when there is, in fact, too much chicken. Some days I can’t even bare the thought of eating more meat. So what do you do in the moments when you don’t want meat but still want to get your protein in?
Go meatless, duh.
I put together a list of the top ten meatless protein foods you can mix into any of your dishes. It’s always possible to get the protein you need from sources other than meat (and you should always be mixing up your diet regardless).
So next time you’re on the hunt for some meatless protein, try one of these.
Beans – 15g / serving (180g)
Yogurt – 10g / serving (100g)
Peanut butter, Almond butter, sunflower seed butter, etc – 10g / serving (100g)
Nuts – 6g / handful (so long as you aren’t Shaq
Oatmeal – 6g / cup
Eggs – 6g / egg
Seeds – 6g / handful (again, if you’re not Shaq)
Cauliflower + Broccoli – 5g / serving (180g)
Spinach – 5g / serving (180g)
