4 Protein-Packed Dinners For a Post-Work Gym Session

A strenuous post-work gym session is sometimes a must when trying to fit a workout into a 9-to-5 schedule. One of the biggest problems? Arriving home late and having to figure out what's for dinner. Instead of grabbing whatever is in sight, or ordering takeout on the way home, a little planning — and a lot of protein — will go a long way.

Bean Burger

A riff on a traditional veggie burger, this bean-and-grain-based spicy chickpea, barley, and quinoa burger offers over 16 grams of protein. This recipe is easy to prepare: just make sure you have all these grains cooked in advance.

Vegetarian Chili

You won't miss the meat in this recipe for smoky tofu chili with black beans. Prep a big pot of this stew a day in advance and enjoy a heaping helping after an intense workout.

Baked Eggs in Avocado

Enjoy breakfast for dinner with a baked egg in avocado that offers more than 15 grams of protein per serving. Top off your avocado with leftover fresh herbs or a little hot sauce for an extra kick.
