Protein: it’s what’s for dinner—and breakfast and lunch. Instead of relying on old favorites like chicken and powders (which are great), add a little excitement and variety to your meal. Willow Jarosh MS, RD and Stephanie Clarke MS, RD, registered dietitians and co-owners of C&J Nutrition in NYC & DC, share their top protein food picks. Your taste buds will thank you.
Why we chose it: This plant-based protein source provides an all-in-one balance of protein, carbohydrates, and unsaturated fat.
Grams of protein: 8g per cup (in the pod)
Tip: Opt for the pre-cooked frozen versions that are still in the pod (like you get with sushi). Put a handful or two in a resealable bag, toss in your briefcase, and it’ll be thawed and ready to eat by snack-time.
