4 Fantastic Ways to Get More Protein When You Don’t Like the Taste of Meat

Wherever we turn, we’re told about the importance of having more protein in our diets. A lot of people should focus on getting more protein, especially if they are vegan or vegetarian, but there are people who try their best to get more protein who just don't like the taste of meat. The great thing is that these days if you don't like the taste of meat even, whether you're not a vegetarian or vegan, there's a wide variety of sources out there for you. Let's show you some.


A lot of people have a very difficult relationship with fish; some people find fish too strong but others can benefit from having a bit more fish in their diet, not just for the protein but for the Omega-3. Suppliers like Fish for Thought have a wide variety, and you can order shellfish online on their website as well as find many other types of fish. If you don't like the taste of fish, it's best to start with really light fish like cod.


Pulses are a fantastic source of protein, and are also high in fibre, a source of iron, and very cheap! All types of peas, lentils, and beans are fantastic sources of protein. If you don't necessarily like the idea of a big meal that comes with lots of meat, the best way to get more protein into your diet is through beans and lentils. You can make fantastic lentil soups that don't feel as filling. A lot of people that try to lose weight use soups as a way to feel fuller because they consume fewer calories due to the water intake. There are other pulses you could make in curry, for example, chickpeas.


Quinoa is a source of protein and in fact, is the only vegan “complete protein.” It is high quality and is a surprisingly diverse food. Quinoa is a nutritional powerhouse, containing all of the essential amino acids that you would find in animal proteins. The great thing about quinoa is it acts as a replacement for rice or pasta and can also be used in other meals. For example, a lot of people are opting for quinoa porridge because they can get more protein rather than carbohydrates.


Of course, for those people who love to snack on nuts, they are a fantastic source of protein. A lot of people don't necessarily like eating loads, usually because of the fat content, but it's important to remember that not all fats are made equal, it’s as much about the nutrition of the foods. High-quality fats like nuts are also full of fibre. You can have a slice of bread with nut butter that would give you just as much protein as meat.

If you want to look after your health, protein is such an obvious choice and can make a massive difference. If you are dieting or you want to be healthy you need to have adequate amounts of protein because these are the building blocks of everything.
