Quick and Easy Healthy Proteins

Our bodies are literally made out of proteins. When we exercise we use proteins to repair and rebuild muscle cells. Protein based foods can also be used to replace calorie dense foods when trying to burn fat. This can leave you fuller for longer. However remember that for effective protein digestion you must eat them with a small amount of good carbohydrates.

Choosing the healthiest protein foods is easy if you stick to organic and those without any unwanted added extras. We have made a list of our favourite proteinous foods and the best way to eat them!

Animal Proteins

Eggs – One of the best mixes of protein and good fats. A great go to breakfast and also a great high protein snack when hard boiled.

Beef Jerky – Jerky has a bad reputation for being unhealthy. But if you buy beef jerky from a good natural source it is packed full of protein and easy to eat on the go.

Turkey – Turkey breasts are easy to cook in bulk and can be ready to eat when you get home from the gym. It’s a great lean source of protein with only 1g of fat per 30g serving.

Seafood Proteins

Sardines – Sardines are great for adding to salads straight from the tin. Making it a quick and easy meal after late training sessions. Just squeeze a bit of lemon for some zing!

Sardines Protein

Salmon – Salmon is extremely high in omega 3 which is a very important nutrient for muscular recovery. Smoked salmon slices can be eaten on the go or baked salmon can be added to a summer salad to increase the protein in the meal.

Prawns – Pre cooked prawns are one of the easiest on-the -go proteins around. They are perfect for post gym recovery with around 22g of protein for a 85g portion and packed with omega 3 fatty acids.

Non Animal Proteins

Nuts – Raw nuts and good quality, organic nut butters can be eaten on the go or at the desk. Try peanut butter spread on apple slices for a natural energy kick.

Peanut Butter Protein

Lentils – Lentils are full of Iron, Vitamin B, magnesium and are a good amount of protein for a plant based food. Try making a large batch of homemade spicy lentil soup then freezing it for an easy, nutritious meal.

Hummus – Made from mainly chickpeas, it’s a yummy high protein plant based protein. A great proteinous snack when eaten in small amounts and easy to make at home.

Quinoa – Quinoa is a carbohydrate with one of the highest protein values that can replenish energy levels as well as aid muscle recovery. Great to add into salads or to make quinoa breakfast pots.

Quinoa protein

Greek yogurt – Greek yoghurt is loaded with calcium making it one of the best foods to keep bones strong and healthy. It also contains around 10g of protein per 100g serving. Try mixing it with frozen berries for extra vitamins and minerals.

Protein Shakes – The easiest alternative protein source to whole foods. You can go for standard whey protein or try a hemp protein for a dairy free option.

7 Super Foods for a Super You

We believe that fitness isn’t just something you do in your spare time, but rather a way of life. From the moment you wake up in the morning, till the moment you fall asleep, we want to give you tips to be the best version of yourself.

We truly believe in adopting a holistic approach to wellbeing. The food you eat, the clothes you wear and the people you socialise with all matter in helping you create the strongest, most fulfilled and well-balanced version of yourself.

Today we’re shining the spotlight on plant-based superfoods to help create a super you.

1. Shelled Hemp Seeds
We can’t get enough of shelled hemp seeds, as they go into almost everything we eat – from our morning smoothies and muesli, to salads and curries. They contain an ideal ratio of the essential fatty acids Omega, 3, 6 and 9, and are high in protein containing the full spectrum of amino acids. Whatever your fitness goals, hemp seeds need to be a part of your diet.

Chia seeds

2. Chia Seeds
A member of the mint family found in Mexico and South America. Chia seeds only became available to purchase in the UK in 2012, but they became an overnight sensation as they have a big nutritional punch, containing more omega-3 acids than a piece of salmon.

3. Cavolo Nero
Part of the kale family, this tangy and bitter black cabbage is taking off in the UK. Considered to be among the most antioxidant-rich foods on earth it is packed full of vitamins A & C which helps your vision and body repair quicker. We love chopping this into salads or making our homemade kale chips in the oven.


4. Turmeric
Turmeric is an ancient indian spice containing a powerful medicinal compound called curcumin. It is known to help reduce post workout muscle inflammation and can be easily incorporated into your diet in curries or morning sunshine smoothies.

5. Peanut/Hemp Butter
We simply love this new combination of peanut butter and hemp. This is a rich source of plant-based protein and the hemp gives it an omega-3 punch. Sounds like it might taste strange, but give it a try and we’re sure you’ll agree. Lather on some celery sticks or eat a spoonful for a quick energy boost.

6. Pomegranate Juice
Not only is pomegranate delicious and a great source of magnesium, it is also rumoured to be a natural aphrodisiac.


7. Bananas
Last but not least, we couldn’t leave off the original superfood! With a large banana containing roughly 100 calories of low-fat quick release energy, a banana based smoothie with a handful of your favourite berries and a plant-based milk makes for a delicious high-energy, low-fat way to start any day.

So what are you waiting for? Pack in those superfoods to aid your TruBe workouts and start creating a super you.
