The Vegetarian’s Guide to Protein Rich Foods

19 Nov

When we talk about proteins to support our workout routines the first thing the jump to each one’s mind are eggs. I am sure even your trainers have probably advised you to eat hard boiled eggs daily.

Now yes egg works well and unlike a lot of things tastes good but then how long can we be eating only eggs right? Sooner or later it can get really boring. So what else can you eat for your daily protein intake? Here are a few things that worked for me.

Greek yogurt

After eggs something else that is power house of proteins is Greek Yogurt and yes you will love to eat this. You probably may not know this but a serving of Greek yogurt contains around 20 grams of proteins.

Make sure your Greek yogurt is fat free. Add a couple of fruits you love to it and some mason jars or maybe stir up a yogurt shake and you are good to go.

Cheese snacks

Now you can be 25 years old or going to be a grandpa there is nothing better than biting into a cheese filled snack with the cheese oozing out isn’t it? The best thing about cheese it that not only is it protein packed but will also help you stay full.

Don’t have time to make cheese sandwich? Just grab onto some cheese packs since these are easy to carry and one pack contains about 8-10 grams of proteins.

Roasted pumpkin seed mix

When it comes to nuts we often do not consider them for our daily snacks but one nut you will find hard to love is pumpkin seeds. Wondering why? Well because each serving of pumpkin seed contains around 5-6 grams of proteins.

Are you still not sure about it? Throw in some raisins, some roasted coconuts and some almonds to make it taste even better. It is one of the easiest on the go snacks you can have and can stay fresh for weeks.

Oatmeal
