#3. Protein can be found for a fair price and is also packed with other nutrients!
Increasing your protein doesn’t mean having a steak dinner every night. Chicken, fish, eggs, yogurt and even plant sources like nuts, tofu, seeds, and beans are packed with protein for reasonable prices at the supermarket. And all of these sources have additional vitamins and minerals to support a healthy body.
But if you’re somebody who wants a quick fix- there are a variety of protein powders, bars, and drinks on the market, though they usually don’t have the vitamins and minerals that you would get in a whole food source. Keep your eye on the ingredients list, and try to avoid fillers, added preservatives, sugars, and artificial ingredients.
Try increasing the number of eggs you eat at breakfast or add another protein source like cottage cheese, beans, whole grain toast, or greek yogurt to the first meal of your day.
