Clean eating highlight: Our Favorite High-Protein Dinner Recipes

POSTED BY COOVY SPORTS TEAM

Protein gives you energy, makes you feel fuller, and helps build bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. It is a macronutrient, which means that you need a relatively large amount of it per day: about 3 servings (7oz) for men, and two servings (5oz) for women. Protein is essential to a healthy diet, and that’s why we’ve picked out our favorite protein packed recipes to share with you.

1. Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

Grilling season is almost over, but you still have time to grill up a couple of these bad boys! The special secret to these burgers is the spinach mixed in with the meat to keep it moist and tender while it cooks. It also happens to add extra protein!

2. Skinny Bell Pepper Nacho Boats

Here’s another ground turkey recipe that’ll have your mouth watering. Get your nacho fix without the fat and carbs!

3. Healthy Turkey Chili

Ground turkey is a great lean substitute for ground beef, and it packs just as much protein and certainly doesn’t lack in flavor.

4. Chicken and Black Bean Burrito Bowl

You had us at “burrito.” Chicken and black beans give this recipe a sweet protein kick, while the cilantro lime rice takes it to star flavor status.

5. Buffalo Chicken and Broccoli Bowls

It’s like chicken wings and Chinese takeout combined—only minus the carbs, fat, and calories!

6. Lemon Chicken Skillet

Everyone should have a go-to basic chicken recipe on hand. This one is refreshing, filling, and easy to make.

7.Southern Oven-Baked Crispy Chicken

Behold: the answer to your prayers. This skinny fried chicken recipe is satisfying and finger-lickin’ good, minus the calories and fat of your traditional fried chicken. Treat yourself to seconds!

8. Egg White Pizza

Don’t skip pizza night! This egg white pizza recipe is low-carb and high-protein. Customize it with your favorite toppings.

9. Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

Mmm, a healthy lasagna alternative packed with veggies? Yes, please. This recipe tastes just as good, if not even better,than the real deal.

10. Vegan Tacos

Ready to give Meatless Monday a shot? These vegan taco bowls might just turn you veg. And rumor has it they’re Beyoncé’s favorite recipe.

11. Low-Calorie Black Bean Soup

We love beans. They’re so high in protein, and so versatile. This soup is delicious by itself or as a side or starter as part of a meal.

12. Cheesy Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Again with the beans. What can we say? They take any meal from decently healthy and mildly flavorful to deliciously protein-packed.

13. Pumpkin Gingerbread Protein Pancakes

Breakfast for dinner! You know you love it, and you most certainly deserve it! These scrumptious pumpkin pancakes are super fluffy, high in protein, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, and vegan.

We hope you find these recipes useful! A healthy diet should always be accompanied by an active lifestyle. Check out Coovy Sports for athletic wear and get moving!
