5 Surprising Muscle-Building Foods

Add variety to your grill with these high-protein substitutes for chicken and beef.

Why it's good for you: Besides being the ultimate sailing trophy, swordfish has virtually the same number of calories per serving as chicken or beef, and it's loaded with heart-healthy omega-3 fats.

Prep: Brush with olive oil and top with a squirt of fresh lemon juice.

How to cook it: Just like ostrich. Grill over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side.
