We all know that you’re supposed to workout regularly to keep oneself in good health. You also need to adhere to a healthy diet. One key component to a healthy diet, especially when exercising regularly, is protein. How is one to get protein into their eating regimen. Here are several suggestions.

1. Eggs

If you are morning workout person, like me, eating a breakfast of eggs after your workout is a great choice. For me, I usually choose egg whites topped with some salsa for extra flavor. If you prefer to add a bit more calories, feel free to include a yolk in the mix.

2. Peanut butter powder

Yes, regular peanut butter is a good source of protein, but it’s also high in calories. If you use peanut butter powder instead, you can mix it into your smoothie or add some water and spread it on a piece of flatbread. Either way you get all the flavor and protein of peanut butter without all the calories.

3. Protein powder

Perhaps you aren’t a fan of peanut butter, are allergic, or just want to mix things up. That’s where plant based protein powder becomes a good choice. Add it to a smoothie of any flavor (can’t do that with peanut butter powder, unless you like kale, blueberry peanut butter- ick!). You also can stir it into oatmeal, yogurt, and many other foods.

4. Chicken

Chicken breasts are a good source of protein and can be utilize in so many healthy recipes. Serve them grilled, as is. Top a green salad. Make a healthy, broth-based soup. Turn it into the filling for a wrap. The choices are almost endless.

No matter what you do to get more protein into your diet, whether it’s with chicken, whey protein alternative, peanut butter powder, or eggs, make sure you do so and in a flavorful way. Then this healthy eating will be fun and not a chore!
