What are your favorite high-protein meals?

My favourite high protein meals involve wild caught salmon and organic eggs..

I’m going to answer this question based on a pescatarian diet – as that’s what I follow now for health reasons. I believe people eat way too much red meat than what they need to, causing a cascade of health and digestive issues. Over the years I’ve realised that a good balance of a variety of food is key. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that protein is only abundant in animal products. Many different vegetables contain protein, and although not in abundance, vegetables contain fibre and antioxidant properties, helping the body combat disease and oxidative stress. Let’s look at some great alternative, high protein meals that provide more than just a high rate or protein, but other nutritional values.

5 of the best alternative, high protein meals you never would have thought of.

The power of omega rich salmon – Salmon and peach salad
I love salads, in summer or winter, they provide me with a rainbow of colours and nutrients to hit my nutritional requirements. Salmon is rich in protein, but also contains omega 3, which is great for exercise recovery and inflammation. If you are quite sore from your training session, or have an injury, then please do consume more omega 3 rich foods like salmon. This particular recipe is great because you can make a lot more, and take it to work the next day. It’s also quick, easy and something the whole family will love.

The power of eggs – Breakfast quinoa salad with fried egg.
I love this one because it’s light enough for the morning, yet very filling. Eggs are a powerhouse of nutrition, and I regularly use them in my meals – especially when I’m time poor or on the run. You can have them as is, or put them in pretty much anything! Try making your quinoa a day ahead, and cut your salad. Make your egg fresh for breakfast if you like, or take it to work with you.

The ‘on the go’ take with you breakfast- Cinnamon roll protein smoothie

This is so easy to make, and really tasty as well! Just have a banana handy, and your trusted protein powder (plus some cinnamon) and you have breakfast on the go, or perhaps a post workout shake.

For a roasted feel – Grilled veggie salad with tuna

Warm, inviting with a hint of crunch from the beautiful crunchy pistachio’s, this is the perfect home or leftover meal. So quick, and so easy.

Weekend feels – Protein crepes

Why not try this over the weekend – the family will never know it’s healthy!
