Quinoa (8 g Protein per Cup)


Though it’s technically a seed, quinoa is commonly referred to as a whole grain and can be used in place of other grains like rice and pasta. One cup of cooked quinoa offers 8 g of protein and 5 g of satiating fiber, according to the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Not to mention that quinoa is a complete protein because it contains all essential nine amino acids.
Enjoy quinoa throughout the day — in the morning in milk like you would a breakfast cereal, for lunch as the protein in your salad, and at dinner in place of pasta.
