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:

Dried pumpkin seeds
