This post may include affiliate links.

You’re working out. You’re eating clean. But are you fueling your body with one of the most important components of healthy eating? Protein helps to build and maintain muscle, which boosts metabolism. Plus, it keeps your blood sugar and energy levels stable throughout the day, allowing you to workout without burning out. These protein-packed recipes are must-try dishes for anyone looking to lose weight and feel fantastic.

1. Peanut Butter and Fresh Raspberries Toast
Whether for breakfast or a pre- or post- workout snack, this toast gives you a nice burst of protein to keep your energy level stable all day long.

2. Teriyaki Chicken Salad Recipe
Why have a boring salad with plain chicken when this teriyaki marinade imparts so much flavor and zest?

3. Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
There’s no reason to buy store bought hummus with additives when this roasted red pepper hummus couldn’t be easier to prepare at home.

Skinny Quinoa Stir Fry

4. Skinny Quinoa Stir Fry
Quinoa is one of the only grain-like foods that is a complete protein, making it a better choice than rice to get your protein needs filled.

5. Lean, Green Protein Smoothie Bowl
This smoothie as a soup will fill you up and satisfy. Great way to get your greens, too!

6. Slow Cooker Pinto Beans, Tomatoes, and Onion Salad
This lettuce-free salad makes the ideal lunch or dinner side.

7. Chickpea and Tomato Flautas
These baked flautas satisfy that craving for crunch!

      Do you have your pop-up blocker turned on? The links should not lead you to ads.
