Tips To Increase Protein Intake
Most people struggle with including enough protein in their diet. As a society we chronically under eat protein and overeat carbohydrates and fats. Eggs and chicken breasts may not always be appetizing. Here are a couple of tips for making it easier to reach protein requirements.
Varying protein sources- Sometimes we get caught up in eating the same protein sources which can make you dread eating protein. Vary your protein sources; foods such as
High protein yogurt
Low fat cottage cheese
High protein peanut butter powder
can all help with reducing protein boredom.
Combining protein sources- Having 6 ounces of chicken breasts may not always be appetizing to me but having 3 ounces of chicken breasts and a high protein yogurt can be enough to make the meal appetizing.
Having a packet of oatmeal with high protein peanut butter powder or
Low fat cottage cheese with toast can be ways to boost protein intake and reduce the boredom of eating the same protein sources.
Supplementing traditional protein sources with untraditional alternative protein sources can do the trick and help you stay on track with your protein intake.
