Since the average woman needs between 40 and 60 grams of protein a day (depending on your weight and activity level), eating 10 to 20 grams of protein per meal is a great way to make it happen. To see which high-protein foods I recommend keep reading.
- Nonfat Greek Yogurt: Chobani Nonfat Vanilla contains 16 grams of protein, and if you go for plain, it's 18 grams.
- Cheese omelet: Two scrambled eggs offers 12.6 grams of protein. Sprinkle on an ounce of mozzarella cheese and that'll add 7 grams of protein.
- Cereal and milk: Look for a cereal that has at least 8 grams of protein per serving. Kashi Go Lean has 13 grams. A cup of skim milk contain 8 grams of protein, and if you go for plain soy milk, it contains 11 grams.
- Peanut butter on toast. Two slices of whole-wheat bread contain 8 grams of protein. Smear on two tablespoons of peanut butter, and it adds 8 grams of protein.
