Quinoa with Veggies
Quinoa is a protein-packed grain that is very light in texture with a nutty taste. Add kale, sweet potatoes, and olive oil for a tasty side dish.
Protein shakes are a quick and delicious way to give your muscles a boost. Buy them pre-made or make your own with your choice of good quality protein powder, fruits, and veggies.
Cottage cheese contains all of the essential amino acids needed to make it a complete protein. One cup of cottage cheese houses 23 grams of protein. Add fresh fruit for added flavor.
Choose from chicken breast, ground sirloin, eggs, edamame, turkey breast and fish to get your lean protein.
Berries are packed with antioxidants and can be eaten alone or in oatmeal or salads.
Bananas are the go-to post-workout snack. They’re delicious, easy, contain potassium (great for muscle strength and metabolism) and fiber that aids in achieving a healthy weight.
