12 Foods High in Protein for Energy and Muscle Building

9. Cottage Cheese:

Cottage cheese has been noted for its protein content by several diet programs that are big on strength training. It’s a good way to start your day, as even a half cup of cottage cheese will provide you a double-digit percentage of your total protein needs for the day.

There’s plenty of calcium as well as Vitamin B-12 in cottage cheese, so you’re getting multiple benefits from it, not just a relatively high protein content.

If you go with a low fat or a nonfat version of cottage cheese you’ll be getting plenty of protein with fewer calories and total fat grams. Full fat cottage cheese may get you into trouble because of its saturated fat content. The low fat and nonfat varieties help you avoid this concern.
