20 Recipes High In Protein That Will Keep You Full

Finding healthy and high protein recipes can be a challenge sometimes. Thankfully we have found a fantastic resource for you if you are looking for high protein recipes that are designed to keep you full and satisfied!

Shannon Bauer of fitness magazine.com has put together a 20 meal list that are high in protein and designed to keep you full and satisfied.

Here is her list of high protein meals:
We’ve all heard the stories of body builders eating extreme amounts of protein to build muscle. But protein is an essential part of your diet, even if you aren’t looking to bulk up. To ensure you’re getting enough, try one of these high-protein recipes.

Lentils and Amaranth Patties

Amaranth is a gluten-free ancient grain. And as Palinski-Wade suggests, it’s a great source of protein. Mix with lentils, like in this recipe, for the perfect protein-packed lunch.

Zucchini Boat Turkey Tacos

Take advice from Persnickety Plates and make tacos without the tortillas. Switch out the sour cream for plain, nonfat Greek yogurt to up the protein.

Cinnamon-Sugar Roasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas are great mixed into salads, stews, and curries. Try them as a snack with this cinnamon-sugar version from Sally’s Baking Addiction.

Black Bean Soup

Black beans pack a whopping 39 grams of protein per cup. Try this black bean soup from Veggie Inspired Journey for a meal that’s filling and super simple to make.

Pumpkin Pie Yogurt

This pumpkin spiced Greek yogurt from The Lemon Bowl packs 19 grams of protein for under 200 calories.

Honey-Garlic Salmon

Salmon is full of good-for-you omega-3s—and with 21 grams of protein per three-ounce serving. The Cooking Jar made a honey-garlic sauce for salmon with only four ingredients.

Black Bean Lentil Salad with Cumin-Lime Dressing

This salad is chock-full of protein from the lentils and black beans. The Garden Grazer’s homemade cumin-lime dressing makes this salad taste fantastic whether you serve it hot or eat it cold the next day.

Sweet Potato, Kale, and Shrimp Skillet

This gluten-free recipe from Primavera Kitchen uses sweet potato, kale, and shrimp to make a quick weekday meal. Even better: It only uses one pan!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

Energy bites are a portable and easy way to get protein into your snacks. Pop a few post-workout—like these pumpkin and chocolate chip ones from Amy’s Healthy Baking.

Beef and Vegetable Skillet

This recipe is perfect for all your leftover veggies. Christy Jordan from Southern Plate uses lean ground beef to make a complete meal.

Quinoa Pizza Bites

Quinoa, the kale of the grain world, can be reinvented in every form. Live Well Bake Often proves it by using it as the base for her pizza bites.

Greek Yogurt Egg Salad Sandwich

Egg salad gets a healthy makeover with this recipe from Damn Delicious. Eggs and Greek yogurt are both great sources of protein, meaning this sandwich will keep you full even longer.

Chicken Broccoli Cheese Quinoa Casserole

Chicken and quinoa are the stars of this twist on a classic casserole.

Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

Brunch just got even better. Cottage cheese and whole-grain oats make Tastes Better from Scratch’s pancakes healthier. They may become your Saturday morning staple.

Quinoa Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese isn’t usually a go-to dish when you’re trying to eat healthy—or high protein, for that matter. But this recipe uses quinoa and butternut squash for a healthy spin on the comfort classic.

Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt

Satisfy your sweet tooth and eat a protein-packed snack with this recipe from Dashing Dish. Bonus: No risk of salmonella!

Peach and Mustard Glazed Pork Chops

Pork can get a bad rep—we’re looking at you bacon—when in fact it is an excellent source of protein. Choose a lean cut, like a pork loin chop, and add a fresh glaze like this recipe from Delish D’Lites.

Edamame Feta Salad

Edamame may look like a veggie, but the soybean is actually a protein powerhouse. This fresh salad from Averie Cooks combines fresh vegetables, feta, and edamame for a lunch that’s healthy yet big on flavor.

Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Hummus

Chickpeas are an excellent source of protein and are a perfect snack when smashed into hummus. This tomato basil hummus from Cooking Classy would taste great with pita chips or fresh veggies.
