6 Foods with more protein than Chicken…

When we are trying to plan meals with high protein, chicken instantly comes to mind. There is nothing wrong in choosing chicken as there are 25g of protein in a 3 ounce chicken breast. But if you would like to add another type of food to your diet to still get your protein, then you can try these foods for a nice change.

Greek Yoghurt

An 8.5 ounce serving of plain greek yoghurt contains 25.5g of protein. This can be eating on its own as a pudding, or add it to your breakfast cereal, smoothies or pancakes.

I always buy this greek yoghurt with added Honey. Its delicious and good for you at the same time.

Yellowfin Tuna

A 3-ounce serving of cooked yellowfin tuna contains 25.5 grams of protein, so if you love seafood, here’s a reason to grill it for lunch or dinner.

Shrimp

Shrimp contains so much protein, more than chicken! A 5 ounce serving has 31 grams of protein. This is great for a change every once in a while, as shrimp can be quite pricey.

Cottage Cheese

Not many people like cottage cheese, or choose to use it within their diet or cooking. But if you are willing to try new things, then cottage cheese is full of protein. One cup contains 28g!

Lentils

Vegetarians, you need to find foods which contain the right balanced nutrients for your diet and lentils should be considered as a great source of protein for you. 1/2 a cup of lentils contains 26g of protein!

Parmesan Cheese

I am such a cheese lover, and love most cheeses. 3 ounces of Parmesan contains 30g of protein. This can be added to salads, pizzas or pastas.
