My Top 5 Low Calorie High Protein Grocery Staples

We should get at least 30g of high quality protein in each of our meals. Next are my top 5 lean protein sources and their portions in grams. Each portion contains 30 grams of protein.

  1. Whey protein: 35g = 124 calories
  2. Raw Boneless skinless Chicken breast: 130g = 134 calories
  3. Raw Tail On Shrimp: 155g = 127 calories
  4. Egg whites: 275g = 133 calories
  5. Nonfat Greek Yogurt: 285g = 168 calories

Having these lean and high protein foods in stock will make it easier to hit your meal and overall daily protein goals.
