Counting Protein

I don't get enough protein, so I started counting protein grams. I've realized that it is easier than I think to get 100g a day. Since I have an intense workout schedule, I need protein for my muscles to heal.

Here are some tips I've come up with:
  • one can of tuna supplies 23 g. that's considerable!
  • Soy milk is high in protein and a great snack.
  • Almonds are also a good source of protein.
  • Even seaweed has 1g of protein.
  • Instead of gatorade for a sports drink, I've been drinking accelerade which has 6g protein for the bottle.
