3 Ways To Get More Protein In Your Diet

If you’re like me you have trouble getting protein in you diet. Its the macro I have the toughest time hitting at the end of the day.

Now I could be obvious and write “Get protein powder” or “Eat more meat” but I have both and I still have trouble getting enough protein haha.

So here’s a few unconventional tips that you may not have thought of.

#1 Buy a Carton of Egg Whites When You Are Buying Eggs

By themselves, egg whites are pretty nasty. I have to drown mine in hot sauce, sriracha, and a bunch of seasonings to enjoy em.

But if you add them with your eggs, you can’t even tell. A good ratio is for every one whole egg you can have a serving or two of egg whites without noticing a difference.

I have since always added egg whites to my eggs in the morning and it has helped tremendously.

#2 Buying Foods with Added Protein

Nowadays, there are actually a lot of foods, foods that you eat everyday, that has a different style (I cant think of a word for it haha) that has more protein in it.

Examples:

Now these aren’t CRAZY packed with protein but it adds up. I’ve had it add up to almost 30 grams of protein. Thats more than my average protein shake.

#3 Add Grilled Chicken At Restaurants

Most restaurants give you the option to add chicken(or any other meat) to most pasta dishes and salads. It may cost a few extra bucks but the benefits of protein outweigh the cost.

These are some of the tips I learned throughout the years on my fitness/macro tracking journey. Go ahead and give them try!
