Protien makes you strong like a bull and lean like a leopard. Depending on who you are, you probably get your protein from various sources. I want to give you my top 5 sources, and you can give them a try in their various forms. I will make a short comment on each source, so I can help you decide if its for you!
1. Cold Water Fish
Salmon, Trout, Halibut
Protein in 100g 3oz Fillet (85g) Protein to Calorie Ratio
26g 22g 1g protein per 4.5 calories
There are crazy amounts of nutrients in Fish, and a high amount of protein. Good cold water fish doesn’t taste…fishy. It also has tons of good fat, which boost good hormones, decreases workout recovery time, and has a wide range of other health benefits.
Protein in 100g 3oz Slice (85g) Protein to Calorie Ratio
36g 31g 1g protein per 5.3 calories
Beef, its JUST SO GOOD ALL THE TIME! Eat it.
Protein in 100g 1 Large Egg (50g) Protein to Calorie Ratio
13g 6g 1g protein per 12 calories
Who else could eat breakfast for every meal of the day? I could! Eggs are versatile food, can be cooked in all kinds of textures, mixed with all kinds of veggies and meats and cheeses. Yum. Just love em, all day, every day.
Protein in 100g 1 Chop (134g,~5oz) Protein to Calorie Ratio
25g 33g 1g protein per 5.2 calories
Pork Chops are great if they are done right, but don’t cook the pig too long, it gets dry. I like the taste of bacon better, and bacon is a valuable source of nutrients. But Pork chops have a higher protein ratio.
5. Whey Protein Powder
I love this stuff. Works in shakes, in pancakes, in water on the go. It’s a great source of quick protein, pre and post workout and just for a milkshake treat. Get a tub, it will change you.
These are some of my favorite sources pound for pound. Bacon and Sausage are obvious adds to the morning routine.
What’s your favorite way to get protein in your diet?
