5 New Ways To Get More Protein In Your Salads

  • Quinoa
    A half-cup of this cooked grain has four grams of high quality "complete" protein, meaning the protein contains all nine essential amino acids your body needs. Quinoa is also packed with fiber, iron, and magnesium.

    Shrimp
    Three or four large grilled shrimp contain 18 grams of lean protein, plus lots of omega-3 fatty acids. Shrimp's mild flavor means it goes with pretty much any kind of salad greens or other add-ins, no matter how strong or bitter the flavor.

  • Feta Cheese
    Hard cheeses can be calorie-dense, but soft, tangy feta is relatively low in calories and fat—yet one serving contains four filling grams of protein. And since it's so flavorful, you don't need much.

    Sunflower Seeds
    Crunchy and nutty, a quarter-cup racks up six grams of protein—plus good fat, vitamin E, and selenium, all of which are important for metabolism.

    Poached Eggs
    Each egg packs six grams of protein, as well as vitamin D. Eggs do have fat, but that makes them more filling. And if you get yours poached, the cooking process doesn't add extra fat or calories. As a bonus,

  • the runny yolk can act as your dressing (and tastes so good).

    Hemp Seeds
    These trendy seeds have five grams of complete protein per tablespoon. Even better, they're a great source of magnesium, zinc, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids.
