1. Eggs for breakfast.
It’s a no brainer. 2 poached eggs on toast – crack a couple in some boiling water in a bowl and whack in the microwave until they’re cooked. Easy peasy.
Or why not create an omlette? Add your favourite ingredients such as spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, add a little cottage cheese for extra protein and you’re set!
Tins of tuna are the best, they’re relatively cheap and portable too! So they’re perfect to eat on the go! I love the Greenseas brand (fat free) ones – Sun-dried tomato & onion, tomato & onion and lemon pepper ones. Eat them as they are, add to rice, salads, on top of Rye Cruskits – anything!
3. Chicken for lunch
Buy a cooked chook from Woolworths or Coles (or your local chicken place), and once it’s cooled down enough to handle rip all the meat and skin off and store in a container for lunches and snacks. I add it to wraps, sandwhiches or just have with salad too! Easy peasy!
4. Greek yoghurt as a snack
I love greek yoghurt for a snack. Especially the Chobani brand. It’s thick and creamy and low in sugar and fat! Perfect!! Add stevia (liquid form) for added sweetness, frozen raspberries, chia seeds, cacao nibs or even mix in flavoured protein powder! Yummo!
5. Protein shake or bar
My fave bars are the Slim Secret’s ones. I sometimes have these stocked in the fridge at home, and take them to work if I’m running late. I prefer not to have them, I would rather have an actual food protein source over a bar or a shake. But they’re handy for travelling and on the go.
A protein shake is something I have after a weights workout or crossfit workout. Brands I love are Gaspari myofusion Pharma Pure or Bulk Nutrients WPC.
How do you get your protein in during the day? What are your favourite protein sources?
