5. Organic Eggs (6 grams of protein per egg)
Eggs are nutritional powerhouses, containing almost every essential vitamin and mineral needed for your body. Loading up on complete protein is even better when you don’t have to worry about added hormones or antibiotics.
6. Dried Fruits & Nuts (About 6 grams of protein per ounce)
Perfect on-the-go snack for post-workout. You won’t have to worry about missing the window of opportunity to refuel! Dried fruits gives you the needed simple carbohydrates while replenishing your muscle glycogen. And nuts are the perfect source of protein. See which is the best nuts for you.
7. Wholegrain breakfast cereal (About 13 grams of protein per serving)
Think cereal is only made for breakfast? Think again! A high protein, high fiber cereal can offer about 30 grams of carbs, 13 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber per serving. It’s perfect for recuperating after a workout. I recommend the Kashi brand.
8. Low Fat Cottage Cheese (13 grams of protein per half cup)
I’m personally not a big fan of cottage cheese but I have to include here because it’s an amazing snack of choice. Cottage cheese is great for muscle recovery and post-workout hydration. It’s also low in saturated fat and has lots of benefits for your bones.
