5 foods that are bursting with protein

5 foods that are bursting with protein

Every once in a while it’s nice to ditch the chicken breast for a different kind of protein fix.

Here are our top 5 foods which are bursting with just as much protein as chicken:

PRAWNS

Great for bulking out a meal, prawns can replace chicken in most instances – think curries, and noodle soups, they can take heat really well so are great with chilli and hot sauces.

Alternatively lemon and lime gives a perfect citrus accompaniment for these yummy morsels.

TOFU

Tofu is highly underrated in the UK, but can be the star of the dish if you give it a chance. With so many different varieties and textures it’s an idea to find the tofu you like the best and then experiment with different dishes. Made from soya bean curd it can come in silken, smoked, firm and extra firm. It’s packed with protein and can be absolutely delicious

COTTAGE CHEESE

Of all the cheese varieties cottage cheese is the lowest in fat and is extremely versatile. Try it in jacket potatoes, mixed with pineapple with a salad on the side, or stir into pasta.

High in protein it will help to fill you up without piling on the pounds.

EGGS

Rich in nutrients, essential fatty acids and packed with protein eggs are hugely versatile and filling. From souffles to omelettes, poached eggs on toast or frittata, you can make a really delicious meal starring eggs to sate your appetite and help build muscle fibres.

SALMON

Salmon is such a healthy choice all round as it contains Omega-3 fatty acids which is great for skin, joints, and boosting brain power. So as an alternative to chicken it has a lot going for it, given that it’s the perfect form of protein and tastes delicious.
