6 Foods with More Protein Than an Egg

6 Foods With More Protein Than An Egg

Protein is an essential nutrient that helps keep your hair, skin, bones, tissues, muscles and organs healthy and working the way they're supposed to. You should eat 8 grams of protein for every 20 pounds of your body weight, according to the Harvard School of Public Health.

A single hard-boiled egg packs six grams of protein, which makes the egg an easy fix. But honestly, how many more hard-boiled eggs can you eat? Time to mix things up with these high-protein foods that have even more protein per serving than an egg:


Protein: 8 grams per cup

This gluten-free seed-like grain is a fantastic source of protein, magnesium, antioxidants, and fiber and my go to for salads.

Dried Spirulina

Protein: 8 grams per 2-tablespoon serving

Fish aren't the only high-protein food you can find in the ocean. Try sprinkling spirulina over a salad, or use it to season roasted vegetables. I love using it in my smoothies for an added punch.

Dried pumpkin seeds

Protein: 10 grams per 1/4-cup serving

Pumpkin seeds may be best known for their magnesium, but they're also a rich source of protein. I add them to my smoothies and top them on salads or as a snack all on their own.

Protein: 12 grams per 1-cup serving

Chickpeas are high in protein and have iron, phosphate, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and vitamin K, which all contribute to building and maintaining bone structure and strength. They are a Win-win in my kitchen and are so easy to use. I top my salads with them straight from the can.


Protein: 7.5 grams per 1/4-cup serving

They're a high-protein food, but almonds also make a great snack because they’re high in vitamin E, copper, and magnesium. I also top my salads with them.

Rolled oats

Protein: 7 grams per 1/2-cup serving

We often think of this breakfast staple as a straight-up carb! But think again, it has a hefty dose of protein and contains filling fiber, and a load of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Add some berries and you have a great breakfast superfood.
