Protein is a vital macronutrient for muscle repair and growth, but did you know that some amazing protein sources often go unnoticed? 🌟 Check out these underrated protein-rich foods that deserve a spot on your plate! 💪🍽️

1️⃣ Greek Yogurt: Creamy and delicious, Greek yogurt packs a protein punch! With approximately 15-20 grams of protein per serving, it’s a versatile option for breakfast, snacks, or even as a base for dressings and dips. 🥣🍓

2️⃣ Lentils: These tiny legumes are not only budget-friendly but also protein-packed! A cup of cooked lentils provides about 18 grams of protein, along with fiber and essential nutrients. Try them in soups, salads, or as a meat substitute in savory dishes. 🍲🌱

3️⃣ Quinoa: Often mistaken for a grain, quinoa is a complete protein source containing all nine essential amino acids. One cooked cup offers approximately 8 grams of protein, making it a great alternative to rice or pasta in your meals. 🍚🥗

4️⃣ Cottage Cheese: Creamy and satisfying, cottage cheese is an excellent source of protein, with around 25 grams per cup. Enjoy it as a snack, pair it with fruits, or use it as a protein-packed ingredient in dips and recipes. 🧀🍇

5️⃣ Hemp Seeds: These little powerhouses are a fantastic plant-based protein source. Packed with all essential amino acids and healthy fats, just two tablespoons of hemp seeds provide around 10 grams of protein. Sprinkle them over salads, smoothies, or yogurt for an added protein boost! 🌿🥣

“Strong” and “healthy” is going to look different on everyone and that’s something that we as women, need to remember. Ladies, everyBODY is different and everybody’s journey with health and fitness is going to be different.

They say “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and I HONESTLY believe that to be true. Stop comparing yourself to other people, some people might look at me and see a large chest and a big bum and not want my body, but that’s not important. What’s important is that I WANT my body and I LOVE my body and at the end of the day that’s what matters most.

Let’s EMBRACE and accept our bodies for everything they are and stop worrying about everything they’re not.
