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
