Sometimes the best tools for fitness can be found in the kitchen! Whether you're staying home or on the go this weekend, today's post covers some useful information on protein foods :D
Who says eating to stay strong can't be satisfying?! The following high-protein foods not only build lean muscle...they're yummy too!! Keep reading and you just may want to fuel up on 1 or 2 of these during the weekend :D
1. CULTIVATED CULTURES
Greek yogurt is yummy but Yoplait's Plenti blends it with fruit, whole-grain oats and seeds (such as flax and pumpkin), turning a protein-rich staple (12 grams in this case) into a potent snack that keeps your appetite in check between meals. Plenti is available in 8 flavors.
2. FREEZER PLEASER
ProYo high-protein frozen yogurt delivers 20 grams of protein (140 total calories) in every 4-ounce squeeze tube. It's available in vanilla bean, banana vanilla, blueberry pomegranate, and dutch chocolate. ProYo is also free of GMOs, soy, gluten and artificial preservatives, colors and flavors.
3. CRUNCH & MUNCH
Want to satisfy your craving for something crunchy and get 21 grams of protein at the same time? Then you've got to try Quest Nutrition's new Protein Chips. They're a fitness-minded woman's ideal snack, baked with just 5 grams of carbs and 2 grams of fat in a range of savory flavors.
4. DECADENT DESSERT
MHP's Fit & Lean Power Pak Pudding provides the creamy pleasure of pudding with just 100 calories and 15 grams of protein in a sweet-tooth-satisfying cup. Its 2 tasty flavors also give you 25% of your daily requirement of calcium.
5. POWERFUL PORTABLE
Oscar Mayer's new protein snacks, P3 Nut Clusters and P3 Grilled Snackers, come in 3 flavors each (different mixes of lean chicken, turkey, ham, cheese and nuts) and offer a double-digit burst of protein in every on-the-go snack pack.
6. A BETTER BURGER
Made from non-GMO pea protein, Beyond Meat's Beast Burger tastes so much like real meat, testers forgot they were eating a veggie burger. Loaded with 23 grams of protein per serving, they're also rich in omega 3s, antioxidants, calcium and iron, so they're flavorful and fitness-friendly.
Now that you've read this post, are you going to try any of these protein foods? Make it happen...lol!
I just bought the Plenti in strawberry AND some more Protein Chips! BRING THEM ON :D
If you have ANY comments OR questions, I'd LUV to hear from you!
