Foods with More Protein Than an Egg

Eggs

A well-rounded diet should always pack in the right amount of protein and eggs are the super popular source of protein. But what about those who are allergic to eggs? We bring some other foods that are equally low in calories and have just as much (or more) protein than a single egg.

Chicken

 

Not only do eggs but chicken also has much protein to offer for the body’s needs. Half a cup of cooked chicken gives you 22 grams of protein. This is much more than what you would have had with eggs.

Cottage Cheese

It is also affordable and can be made at home too. Four ounces of cottage cheese contains 14 grams of protein that is again much more than egg’s protein.

Dried pumpkin seeds

They may be best known for magnesium but are also a rich source of protein. 10 grams of it and you have fulfilled the body’s daily requirement of proteins.

Cheese

 

It is because of these cheeses that pizza cannot be considered completely unhealthy. One ounce of mozzarella and cheddar carries 6.5 grams of protein. These cheeses are not just rich in protein but are good containers of Vitamin D, calcium and healthy fats. Mozzarella and cheddar are rich in satiating proteins that keep one full for some time.

Half a cup of boiled beans contains 7.3 grams of protein. Besides this they also prevent blood sugar levels from spiking too often.
