The Top 20 Meat Proteins

A workout warrior looking to build muscle should keep these top protein sources stocked.

Usually not on most muscle building protein lists, scallops are a great lean protein choice. One 3.5-oz serving contains only 0.5 grams of fat. Scallops are easy to cook as they can just be seasoned with salt, pepper, a little peanut oil (which has a neutral taste and high smoke point), and placed on a very hot pan. Sear each side for 60-90 seconds (depending on the size of the scallops) and you’re ready to eat.
