Protein can be found in a large variety of foods. It can be found in meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, and surprisingly nuts! However, not all foods in these groups contain protein. Kristina and I have compiled a list of protein rich foods in each category.
- sea bass
- squid (calamari)
- chicken/ duck eggs
- sunflower seeds
Now, some of these sources are healthier than others and some should only be eaten occasionally. (To learn more about this visit http://www.healthyeatingstartshere.com/nutrition/protein-in-nuts). Nuts are also a great source of healthy fats!
With each meal, or eating, you should have one serving of protein. A serving size is about 2 eggs, the size of a deck of crds, the size of your palm, or in the case of nuts- it is a handful.
