High Protein Foods To Fuel Your Day

High-protein foods are essential when it comes to supporting your health and fitness goals. Our bodies need protein to function so it’s important to get enough of it! But sometimes, you just wanna hit your protein intake without a shake. We get it, sis.

We’ve rounded up some of our fave high-protein snack ideas and recipes from THE BOD App that are the perfect way to fuel your day - these babies will satisfy your midday hunger cravings and give you a good hit of protein at the same time!

  • Chickpeas

Packed with protein (7g per 100g serve!), fibre, and vitamin B9, chickpeas are a great mid-afternoon snack that will give you the boost of energy you need to make it to the end of the day. Roast them up yourself by sprinkling a layer of chickpeas on a lined baking tray with spices like cumin, salt and paprika, and baking for an hour at 150°C fan-forced. Or, why not try our Pumpkin Chickpea Hummus recipe, made with only 8 ingredients?

  • Eggs

Eggs are packed with protein, which can give you a steady and sustained source of energy. Additionally, leucine is the most abundant amino acid in eggs, and it’s known to stimulate energy production in several ways. Leucine can help cells take in more blood sugar, stimulate the production of energy in the cells, and increase the breakdown of fat to produce energy. Moreover, eggs are rich in B vitamins. These vitamins help enzymes perform their roles in the process of breaking down food for energy. Our Spring Veggies Breakfast Egg Wraps from THE BOD Fuel are an amazing way to start your day.
