  1. Swap regular yogurt for Greek yogurt. 1 serving of Greek yogurt can have anywhere from 15 to 20 grams of protein.
  2. Get sipping on EnsureMax Protein, which has 30 grams of high-quality protein and 1 gram of sugar. It’s available in two protein packed flavors, including Mocha and Milk Chocolate.
  3. Add peanut butter to fruit, which can average around 8 grams of protein on only 2 tablespoons.
  4. Choose lean ground beef for more protein. 3 ounces of beef is packed with 22 grams of protein.
  5. Keep high-protein nuts like peanuts, almonds and pistachios handy for when you get hungry. 30 almonds can have as much as to 7.6 grams of protein.
  6. Mix in seeds like hemp, chia or flaxseeds to your meals.
