Need to pump up your protein intake? Here are some surprisingly easy ways to sneak protein into every meal without sacrificing calories or taste!

Nuts: Snacking on a handful of nuts is a healthy way to satisfy your hunger while getting your protein intake. However, you can also you nuts the non-traditional way and bake with them or sprinkle them over your salad to instantly add protein to your regular meals.

Edamame:  Edamame is high in protein, iron, calcium, vitamin c and manganese. You can either snack on them regularly or you can add them to any salad. You can even make an edamame dip for veggies or to spread as a condiment on your sandwiches.
