How to Get More Protein in Your Diet

You need protein to stay full and prevent overindulging in sugary foods, but are you getting enough?

With the average adult male requiring 55 grams of protein per day and the average adult woman requiring 45 grams, it can be difficult to get in that protein (other than a scoop of BT compatible protein powder).

Here are just a few healthy, quick and tasty ways to sneak in protein. Remember to keep it compatible with your Blood Type diet.

Quinoa
At 8 grams per cup, this amino acid powerhouse is considered a complete protein.
Make it tasty by adding in black beans and spices, or some veggies for a quinoa salad.
Jerky
For the the classical choice of meats, try making beef, turkey, chicken or fish jerky!  Great for busy days when you’re reaching for a fast food!  
Black Beans
Black beans are tasty in a salad, or even on their own and they’re super nutritious. They contain no cholesterol and have a ton of antioxidants.  Hit your daily protein goals with this, at 15 g per cup.
Peanut Butter
Both peanut butter and almond butter are fantastic sources of protein and easy to sneak into shakes, smoothies, use as spreads, or on fruits.  Make sure you have a good source (no added sugars) and enjoy seven to eight grams of protein in only 2 tablespoons.
Avocados
Are Avocados on your Beneficial list?  With about 4 grams of protein per avocado, make a new avocado soup for breakfast!
