It’s not news that protein is essential to a well-balanced diet. But when you do a deep dive into nutrition or start counting your macros, are you really getting enough protein into your meals? We were struggling with this too so we searched high and low for high protein meal prep recipes to try all week long!
What does increasing protein in your diet do for you?
Protein is the building blocks of muscles, so it helps with increasing strength and muscle mass. It is also the most filling macronutrient, so raising your intake will keep your stomach satisfied for longer and will reduce hunger as well. Protein is also known to boost your metabolism and assist in weight loss. So check your macros and see if you’re getting enough!
We could’ve compiled a high protein recipe list, but we took it a step further and found amazing high protein recipes that are meal prep friendly! They’re quick and easy to make and will help your body recover while keeping you full. All the wins!
