For some endurance athletes, the thought of getting 100 grams of protein or more in meal plans may feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t need to be complicated! Don’t worry, I got you with 5-Day sample high protein meal plans to showcase how you can eat more protein in your day.
When you break it up between three meals and a couple of snacks, the number is a lot more manageable. The grams of protein can add up faster than you think.
In this article, I will be showing 5 sample meal plans that all have at least 100 g of protein. It includes only the protein foods, and you can feel free to sub in any carbs and fat sources that you’d like.
The fifth day shows a sample meal plan that is lacto-ovo vegetarian, for any plant-based athletes out there!
Let’s get into it and make sure to save this post for later.
My bonus tip for eating vegetarian is to eat complementary proteins. When combined together, these are two proteins that have all of your essential amino acids.
As you can see, getting your 100 grams of protein per day can be a lot easier than you may think.
Try out one of these sample meal plans next time you need some protein inspiration!
