Clean High Protein Meal Ideas


Hello there! 

As a participant in the Jamie Eason's 12 week LiveFit trainer program (Read more here) I have to eat a LOT of protein every day: 130-140g.

This almost doubled my previous intake but man do I feel better, fuller, and more energized.

I apologize if you are vegetarian. Most of these wont suit your fancy.
I'm a meatatarian--it's a personal choice--and most of these meals are packed full of the stuff.
But don't shy off yet you veggians I have some awesome snacks and desserts that may suit your fancy.

Cottage Cheese and Veggies
1/2 cup cottage cheese
veggies of choice; my favorite are:
sweet peppers, carrots, cherry tomato,
celery, and cucumber.

nutritional value will vary on the amount of veggies and the type of cottage cheese you use: 4%-fat free ,small curd to large curd.  But 1/2 a cup will have ~12g protein!!! 


All nutritional information provided is for reference purposes only. Nutritional value may very based on the ingredients used

I'll be posting a few of these protein loaded meals, snacks, and dessert so stay tuned!
