Eggs are considered to be the best muscle food. They have high amounts of protein than probably any other item in your supermarket along with essential amino acids.
After eggs, chicken is among the most popular high-protein foods. If consumed without skin, it has a good amount of healthy protein.
Salmon is believed to offer almost 25 per cent more protein than other seafoods. Not only that, it also packs omega-3 fatty acids.
Take low-fat milk, bring it to boil and remove from heat. Now add some lemon juice and let it rest. The milk will coagulate and after a while strain it using a muslin cloth. Your home made healthy cottage cheese is ready.
Not many know this fact but adding wheat bran to your meals or having wheat bran roti with your meals also contribute to your daily protein intake.
Kidney beans, black beans, lima beans are all good and healthy sources of protein. They make a good choice for weight watchers.
