Protein rich meals do much more than increase your muscles after an intense workout!

They control hunger and aid weight loss when done the right way, and at the right time. You might be wondering how you can incorporate more protein into your diet.

Keep reading because we’re going to give you five awesome meals to try out throughout the day!


Breakfast is by far one of the most important meals of the day. But what delicious plate can you make in a jiffy before heading off to work?

Here are a few high protein breakfast ingredients:

  • Eggs
  • Diary products [milk, greek yogurt, cottage cheese]
  • Peanut Butter

You can scramble these ingredients into hundreds of different yummy recipes. Here’s our high-protein breakfast suggestion…

Recipe #1

Boil up a bowl of oatmeal. Make sure to add in at least one cup of low-fat milk. Once they’re ready and in a bowl, add in a tablespoon of peanut butter. Top it off with some chia seeds for an extra kick of protein.  

Recipe #2

Toast two pieces of bread, then lay them flat on a plate. Scramble up some eggs, and put them on the bread. To add a little more flavor you can cut up some avocado, but be careful as it’s high in fats!

If you’ve already added turkey sausage to this meal, don’t add an avocado half.


One of our favorite times of the day is lunchtime. You finally get a break from work to go out in search of a tasty treat. A smart way to stay away from the fast food trap is to meal prep!

Here are some great high protein lunch ingredients:

  • Tuna [mix with avocado instead of mayonnaise]
  • Wild caught salmon
  • Chicken
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Brussels sprouts

You can never go wrong with greens! Steamed are easier on the teeth if you’re not a fan of the crunch. They’re high in fiber as well, which will keep your gut happy too.

Recipe #3

Bake wild-caught salmon in the oven with a small amount of butter. Sprinkle on garlic and basil. Last but not less, squeeze on some lemon juice for a tangy twist.

Steam up a side of broccoli to go along with it. To give broccoli a little flavor, pour on a bit of lemon juice, followed by salt and pepper.   

Protein Rich Meals for Dinner

Did you stop at the gym on your way home? It’s always best to work out three hours after you’ve had lunch. If you need a quick pick-me-up to get you through, a protein bar should do the trick.

Exercise is a vital part of keeping healthy. Sport your stylish athletic wear with a fitness trainer that knows all the secrets. They’ll work with you to plan out your day and give you a nutrition guide to follow.

This makes getting enough protein easier. Speaking of protein, here are some dinner ingredient options:

  • Lean beef
  • Quinoa
  • Shrimp

Good protein meals are all about using meats, vegetables, and nuts to your advantage.

Recipe #4

In a large skillet, fry up some quinoa, peppers, celery, black beans, corns, in some extra virgin oil. Violà, dinner is ready! This is a quick-and-easy recipe for those endless Monday evenings.

Recipe #5

Grill up some shrimp and toss that into a bowl of alfredo pasta. This is a true treat. It may take around fifteen to twenty minutes to prepare, but the wait is worth it.

Be sure to add in parsley, basil, salt, pepper, and a bit of lemon juice for an unforgettable plate. Cilantro works as well, and don’t forget to add in a handful of mozzarella or parmesan cheese.

Don’t Invest In a Career. Here Is Everything You Can Do To Build a Life

The world is changing rapidly. The way we live has already changed. The way we work keeps changing. Entire industries are crumbling. Robots are eating jobs. People are scared of losing their jobs. Nobody is safe.

But people are empowered to express themselves more than ever. The opportunities to create, to become a part of a global conversation and transformation are now more than you can ever imagine. There are now more free online resources to help you start and pursue your life’s work.

You can take your idea, business, or career, and turn it into something truly successful and amazing. It’s easier to transform your passion into your job than finding a job that matches your what you love to do.

What will you do with that?

What will your place be in this new, interesting world? Will you have a voice? Will you be a creator, or just a consumer?

You can do something.

Do something interesting, meaningful, different, amazing and truly remarkable. You have a choice. Choose to show your most amazing work to the world.

Inappropriate attention to detail is the reason why you have not launched your work. By all means, get it right but don’t aim for perfection.

Constantly push to evolve your ideas, even if you are not ready to launch your life’s work yet. Don’t get stuck!

“Whatever you dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”  Goethe

Be a part of the conversation, and say something remarkable. Create something unique, new, beautiful. Build upon the works of others and transform it into your own.

Don’t be subject to the tyranny of “how things have always been done”. Find your true north and push past the default.

Here is everything you can choose to do to build a life that matters to you

Start a blog, write at least a little each day. Write a book. Or an ebook. Share your tips with others online or through a free ebook. Write poetry and publish it on the web. Create interesting, lovely or funny videos, put them on You Tube.

Create an app that will solve a problem in people’s lives. Become a watchdog to replace the faltering newspapers. Explore the world, and blog about it.

Try something you’ve always been afraid to try, and put it on video. Be yourself, loudly. Start a new company, doing only one thing, but doing it very well.

Start a business that does a service you’ve always wanted, or that you are frustrated with in other companies because the service sucks. Put your heart into something.

Say something that no one else dares to say. Do something others are afraid to do. Help someone no one else cares to help. Make the lives of others better.

Make music that makes others want to weep, to laugh, to create. Inspire others by being inspiring. Teach young people to do amazing things. Write a play, get others to act in it, record it. Empower others to do things they’ve never been able to do before.

Read, and read, and then write. Love, and love, and then help others to love. Do something good and ask others to pass it on. Be profound. Find focus in a world without it.

Become minimalist in a world of dizzying complexity. Reach out to those who are frustrated, depressed, angry, confused, sad, hurt. Be the voice for those without one. Learn, do, then teach.

Meet new people, become fast friends. Dare to be wrong. Take lots and lots of pictures. Explore new cultures. Be different. Paint a huge mural. Create a web comic. Be a dork, but do it boldly.

Interview people. Observe people. Create new clothes. Take old stuff and make new stuff from it. Read weird stuff. Study the greats, and emulate them.

Be interested in others. Surprise people. Cook great food, and share it. Be open-minded. Help someone else start a small business. Focus on less but do it better.

Give people a ride in your car. Use Uber to your advantage. Start an online shop on Shopify. Create and sell stuff on Etsy.

Help others achieve their dreams. Put a smile on someone’s face, every day. Start an open-source project. Make a podcast. Start a movement. Be brave. Be honest. Be hilarious. Get really, really good at something. Practice a lot. A lot. Start now. Try.

If you’re willing to take the risk of sharing yourself and your ideas with the world, you can create value you will be proud of.

Show up everyday and work on your most important life work. Whether the outcome is magnificent or eternal, whether it changes people’s lives, changes the world, changes you or groundbreaking, it matters that you show up.

By focusing on doing the one thing that excites you, you not only give yourself a shot at putting in the effort to become amazingly great at something, but you also make it easier for potential customers or employers to see you as “the guy who’s really great at that thing.”

If you pursue your dreams long enough, compounding takes effect. Momentum will surge. Don’t give up just yet.  Action begets outcome. Outcome begets action. Rinse, lather and repeat and you have momentum. You’ll become unstoppable.

Start. Move, make, create, ship, do. Just start. That’s what entrepreneurs do. They start. They start something. Sometimes it is something big. Sometimes it is a big failure. Either way, they got stuff done.

Don’t invest in a career. Build a life. Take your dreams seriously.
