Easy Protein Cheat Sheet – 17 Sources of REAL PROTEIN


These protein sources will be helpful for vegans and vegetarians. It will be harder to hit your target because vegetables have a lower protein count than meat.

#17 Spinach – 3g protein / 100g

#16 Kale – 4g protein / 100g

#15 Broccoli – 4g protein / 100g



Make sure you’re getting lean meat. Any lower than 93% and you’ll be getting more fat instead of protein

#14 Steak – 23g protein / 4 oz

#13 Lean Ground Beef – 21g protein / 4 oz

#12 Boneless Pork Chops  (fat removed) – 26g protein / 4/oz

#11 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast – 24g / 4 oz

#10 Turkey Breast – 24g / 4 oz



#9 Halibut – 23g / 4oz

#8 Salmon – 23g / 4oz

#7 Tilapia – 21g / 4oz

#6 Lobster – 17g / 4oz

#4 Yellowfin Tuna – 21g / 4oz

#3 Shrimp – 21g / 3oz



#2 Protein Powder – Approx 21g / scoop

#1 Protein Bars – 20g / bar



I usually drink 1 scoop of protein powder as breakfast in the morning. This secures me of 25g of protein instantly! I hope you find this guide useful 🙂
