Looking for easy ways to add more protein to your diet? We’re not surprised, but there are many ways to get that done. Here are a few easy swaps that can help you increase your protein intake in unlikely places.

Swap Popcorn For Cheese

Most people eat popcorn or chips when watching a movie, but have you considered some other healthy options? For example, serving a nice cheese plate instead of unhealthy snacks is an easy way to eat more protein.

Swap Juice For Milk

Juices usually contain lots of sugar, so it’s always better to drink a glass of milk instead because milk is not only a good source of protein, it’s also packed with calcium and other important nutrients.

Swap Cereal For Eggs

Cereal is a popular breakfast, and we all know it tastes awesome. But for a nutritious and protein-rich meal, eating eggs is usually the better choice.

Swap Regular Yogurt For Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is not only high in probiotics, calcium and Vitamin B, it also packs twice as much protein compared to regular yogurt.

Swap Regular Salad For Protein-Rich Salads

Most veggies are not very high in protein, so when preparing a salad try to add more protein-rich foods such as chicken, sliced turkey, chickpeas, cheese, or tofu.
