When it comes to nutrition, protein is pretty important. Protein helps you grow muscle, recover from exercise and feel full. And like carbohydrates, protein gives you energy (with less kcal, of course). Most people get their protein at dinner, paving the way for nutritionally empty breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Men’s Health recommends spreading protein intake throughout the day, preferably with nutrient-rich sources like beef and turkey. You may be wondering how to squeeze these high-protein items into your diet between meetings or on a quick lunch break. Luckily, beef jerky or turkey jerky makes for a quick, easy, on-the-go snack that packs as much as 11 grams of protein in just one serving. Check out other great protein sources at Men’s Health.
