5 surprising ways to increase your protein intake

It increases muscle mass, reduces food cravings, increases satiety and improves bone health. No matter what your health goals may be, protein is the must-have macronutrient everyone is talking about. Here are a few, surprising ways to increase your protein intake.

5 surprising ways to increase your protein intake

Let’s be honest, packing in the protein can be a challenging task. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty sick of bland chicken breast! Thanks to the team at Halo Top we discover some delicious (and surprising) ways to increase your protein intake.

Delicious ways to increase your protein intake

Pasta — Dieters rejoice!

Despite the bad wrap it gets, pasta is not just the naughty bowl of carbs we think it is. One cup of whole-wheat pasta has 7.5 grams of protein, making it a delicious comfort food and non-traditional protein source.

Ice-cream — Craving a not-so-naughty dessert?

You may have noticed the ever-expanding healthy dessert section of your local freezer aisle, spurred on by pioneering brand Halo Top. Each tub contains only 280 to 360 calories and a whopping 20 grams of protein, making it one of the healthiest ways to treat yourself. F45 fanatics are even petitioning for it to be added to their meal plans.

Cheese — Who would have thought?

Everyone’s favourite hard cheese, parmesan, is not just a delicious topping for your fave Italian dishes. It’s also packed with 10 grams for a serving of two tablespoons.

Guava — Tasty, tropical!

Guava is a fantastic post-gym snack to replenish yourself after a hefty lifting session. With 4.21 grams of protein per cup, it’s the highest-protein fruit around – and a fresh, light alternative to meat-based protein sources.

Pancakes – The token breakfast food.

Protein-packed pancakes are delicious, and easy to whip up for a morning treat. Make your own mix using a cup of rolled oats, a banana, two scoops of your favourite protein powder and a cup of almond milk. The end result? A delicious, filling breakfast with about 25 grams of protein per serve.

    Most people already consume too much protein, why not get it from plant sources. Suggesting ice-cream is so unhealthy and fattening. The average person should not take in more protein if they want to be healthy.
