Don’t worry, I’m not going to give you a science lesson on protein. I like the food aspect so much more than the scientific one.
Protein. We all need it. Some of us get too much. Some of us don’t get enough.
Sometimes it is easy to get enough. Other times its not.
I am definitely what I would consider a “protein person.” I need a decent amount of protein (and fat) at each meal or I get hungry. And then I get really crabby. Ask the Taster, he’ll tell you it isn’t pretty.
Here are some of my favorite – EASY – ways to get in protein!
Favorite, Easy Proteins:
- peanut butter or other nut butters
- cheese sticks
- greek yogurt
- hard boiled eggs
- protein bars like thinkThin
- sprouted bread
- cottage cheese
- beans like lentils
- protein shake/smoothie
