Dinner, Recipes

As a macro coach, I am always helping my clients and the FHM+ App community with hitting their protein goals. Getting in enough protein is a major concern for many who are new to tracking macros. I get it, I’ve been there and completely understand the intimidation that comes with getting your first macro count and seeing the high protein number.

One of my best tips for hitting your protein goal is to find foods and recipes that you enjoy that make the process easy! This is precisely why our team creates dozens of high-protein recipes per month. We want you to hit your goals, enjoy your food, and get results.

In this post, we’re highlighting just 20 of our favorite recipes that contain 30g of protein or more. Keep in mind that these recipes are just the tip of the iceberg. Between our blog which contains hundreds of free recipes and the FHM+ App which contains all those + countless more exclusive recipes with new ones once every week - we have you more than covered when it comes to nailing your protein goal.
