Great Protein Sources When You’re Tired of Chicken

It might not be possible to completely get tired of chicken, but every once in awhile you might need a break from your normal recipes and just feel like switching things up. Here are some of the best alternative protein sources to try when you’re tired of all that chicken breast you eat.

Turkey Breast

Okay it’s not traveling too far too switch to turkey breast for a bit, but it does taste different. If you can find ground turkey meat that is made from just the breast meat it’s a very versatile thing to cook with. Ground turkey breast is super easy to season, and it’s filling with tons of protein and little fat. A three ounce portion of turkey breast is actually a little lower in calories than chicken,

Eggs

Eggs of course are always a great option when it comes to lean protein, and they’re easy to portion control as well. Don’t think eggs are just for breakfast time, they’re also great as a protein for salads, on sandwiches, or the star of an omelette dinner. Eat the yolks as well to get the highest protein and nutrient boost.

Salmon

Most fish are good options for high protein, but salmon is a fan favorite that is easy to cook and incorporate into a lot of recipes where chicken is generally used. Salmon is an awesome source of omega-3 fatty acids which keep the heart healthy and the stress hormone cortisol lower in the body.

Shrimp

Shrimp is another high protein option that is very low in calories. A four ounce serving of shrimp has only 112 calories and less than one gram of fat, but boasts 23.7 grams of protein. It’s also a good source of vitamin D which we need to effectively absorb calcium.

Grass Fed Beef

Beef is not necessarily a no when it comes to lean meat eating. Grass fed beef is high in CLA which in some cases has actually been linked with weight loss. When you’re eating beef just always be sure to choose the leaner cuts. Lean ground beef is a good option, as is steak cuts that come from the sirloin.

Lean Pork

Pork gets a bad reputation as a lean meat, probably since we often associate it with fried, fatty bacon. But lean cuts of pork can actually be quite healthy. Three ounces of pork has 18 grams of protein which is less than chicken’s 27 grams, but it also has fewer calories than chicken at 96 versus 142. They have about the same amount of fat however, at three grams total, one gram of which is saturated. Just make sure that the pork you’re choosing is actually lean, such as tenderloin, loin chops and sirloin roast. Deli meats not so much. Pork is actually a good source of the B-vitamins which help to keep the metabolism running high.
