Protein-Packed Dinners for Weight Loss and Muscle Growth

Lighter Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp is a lean protein with 18 grams per 3-cooked-ounce meal. Selenium and vitamin B12 are also abundant in it. Omega-3 fats combating inflammation are also present. Serve shrimp scampi with zoodles or whole-grain pasta and a green salad.

Air-Fried Turkey Burgers

Air-fried turkey burgers with 39 grams of lean protein are a quick and easy alternative to beef burgers. They make a 20-minute low-carb supper without breadcrumbs.

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Lentils are my favorite plant-based protein since a half-cup cooked contains 9 grams. They include iron, folate, and fiber, making them filling. Lentils are cheap—about $0.10 per quarter-cup serving.

Italian-Inspired Beef & Farro Bowls

Lean beef provides high-quality protein and nutrients. A 3-ounce meal of cooked lean beef contains 10 necessary elements, including B-vitamins, zinc, and iron, for an active lifestyle.

Creamy Polenta Shrimp and Vegetable Bowls

This recipe meets one of the two weekly seafood dinners using low-fat shrimp. Choline is essential for brain and liver function, and omega-3 fats are healthy for the heart and brain.

Vegan Baked Spaghetti

This baked spaghetti has 23 grams of plant protein from silken tofu, chickpea pasta, and textured vegetable protein. This spaghetti contains soy (tofu and textured vegetable protein), which may help you lose weight and lower cholesterol.

Tuna Burgers with Smashed Avocado and Tomato

These burgers use cheap canned tuna, which is low in saturated fat and high in complete protein, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fats.

Chicken with Spinach and Mushrooms

Boneless, skinless chicken and Greek yogurt in the cream sauce give this spinach and mushroom chicken lean protein. Although low in calories, this meal is full and fulfilling because to the protein.
