The 3 best/easiest ways to incorporate more protein into your diet
Did you know the average American consumes less protein than adequately needed for their body to function optimally? Getting more protein in our diets is something at the top of all our minds these days, especially if we are focused on gaining muscle. Protein is essential for many body functions such as building, repairing and maintaining many of our bodies internal systems. One of the best things about protein is that it is very satiating, meaning that you feel full for longer and feel more energized.
Check out our top 3 tips on how to include more gains in your diet:
- Protein Shakes are a great addition- Protein shakes aren’t just for the serious body-builders, they are easy to incorporate into a smoothie or drink. You can choose from hemp, whey, pea and other types of powders for a quick protein boost, with the average being around 20 grams of protein
- Eat more protein. It sounds silly but to add an extra ounce or two to each meal could yield up to extra 40 grams of protein per day. As lean animal proteins are dense and full of protein and not much of anything else; it is the most efficient way to add more protein to your daily diet.
- Crack an egg or two- Eggs are great because they come in a variety of preparations - hard-boiled, soft scrambled, or however you like them—for a fat-burning and delicious meal. You can add an extra one or two to your breakfast to help you meet your protein goals. Your average egg contains about 6-7 grams of protein.
