  1. Dairy and Eggs – Breakfast classics, as they say: Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, and milk.
  2. Lean Meats – Hello meat eaters: Steak, ground beef, boneless pork chops, and chicken or turkey breast.
  3. Seafoods – If you’re not a meat lover, then eat seafoods instead. Try Yellowfin tuna, Halibut, octopus, and Sockeye salmon.
  4. Grains – Not only protein, grains are also rich in B vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, and minerals. Some high-protein grains include wheat germ, soba noodles, and quinoa.
