What are Good High Protein Meals?

Most of the meals that are high in protein will contain some of these ingredients: lean meat, fish, beans, low-fat dairy, nuts, seeds, eggs, etc. Check out the video below to see the examples of high protein meals you can prep and pack for lunch.

Now, if you’re looking for specific recipes. Just check the list below with some of my protein lunch ideas. I guarantee these dishes will keep you full and your tummy happy!

1. Spicy Slaw Bowls with Shrimp & Edamame


Do you love eating salads? Me too!

They are so fresh and light and packed with nutrition. However, sometimes, it can feel like you’re just eating grass.

With this recipe, you’re definitely not going to feel like you’re eating grass. In fact, this salad is packed with healthy greens and healthy proteins.

We’re adding edamame and shrimp for extra protein. Edamame is not only high in protein but also rich in fiber, minerals, and vitamins.

For instance, one cup of cooked edamame provides a whopping 32% of your daily fiber needs, 79% of your daily manganese needs, and 121% of your daily folate needs. Manganese helps you build healthy bones, while folate helps you build DNA.

This salad is also tasty and only takes ten minutes to prepare. It is a beautiful combination of creamy, crunchy, zesty, and savory with a hint of heat.

For this recipe, we’re making our salad dressing using seasonings, sesame seeds, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. If you need to stock up on sesame oil, here’s a high-quality sesame oil that I recommend.

And for the salad, we get our crunch, and creaminess by using coleslaw mix, radishes, edamame, and avocado. This chickpea salad is a good choice too!

2. Honey Sesame Chicken Lunch Bowls


Sandwiches and salads are the perfect go-to for lunch, but sometimes, they get kind of stale. This recipe is the perfect way to switch up your lunch routine.

It’s Asian inspired, simple to make, and makes 4 servings- perfect for lunch prep! Don’t forget to get good quality sealable meal prep glass containers like these or BPA free ones.

They’ll keep your lunch fresh for longer. For this dish, we’re using the chicken breast as our protein.

Chicken breasts are extremely high in protein, but very low in fat. That makes them the perfect choice if you’re trying to watch your fat intake.

We’re making a chicken stir-fry with broccoli and snap peas. And as delicious as this stir-fry is, it’s the sauce that I love the most.

It’s a great combination of umami, sweet, and savory. To make this sauce, all you need is chicken stock, honey, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, cornstarch, and some good quality soy sauce like this.

To make the stir-fry, simply sauté your veggies, then add your chicken breasts. Once your chicken breasts are done, add your sauce to heat it through and serve with cooked rice. If you like chicken meal prep, you might also love these chicken burrito bowls that are high in protein and healthy!

3. Chicken Fajita Meal-Prep Bowls


Are you craving Mexican? We’ve got you covered- this dish is not only delicious but a feast for your eyes as well!

This dish is packed with tons of protein and fiber, making it doubly sure that you won’t be hitting the vending machine come mid-afternoon.

It is made with tons of veggies. There are not one, or two, but actually three different colors of bell peppers.

But what makes the dish shine is the Fajita seasoning. It’s spicy, sweet, savory, and not too salty.

In order to make this seasoning, you’ll need chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt, paprika, and some budget-friendly cumin powder like this.

To make this dish complete, serve with brown rice or mashed cauliflower. To make mash cauliflower you’ll need a cheap but sturdy vegetable steamer like this one here.

Also, you probably want to get a food processor. Here is a low budget one that I always recommend.

Here is my own low carb version of chicken fajita, check it out!

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 324
  • Fats: 15g
  • Protein: 30g
  • Carbs: 18g
  • Fiber: 7g
  • Sugar: 5g


4. Spicy Chicken


If you love chicken and you love spicy- this is the meal for you.

I love making chicken breasts, but sometimes they can come out bland. Let’s face it- fat gives the food flavor, and chicken breasts don’t have much fat.

But these chicken breasts are not only tender, but they are also delicious- thanks to the seasoning. And the seasoning ingredients are surprisingly simple!

What you’ll need to make the seasoning are dried thyme, paprika, onion powder, ground coriander, crushed red pepper, and salt and pepper.

To make the chicken breasts, toss your chicken breasts in your seasoning and a bit of olive oil. Then, place your chicken breasts on a parchment-lined baking sheet so they don’t stick.

If you like spicy, you might enjoy these spicy curried chicken meal prep bowls.

5. High Protein Low Carb Shrimp Ceviche


Do you love shrimp? Then, you’ll love this dish.

This dish is made with pre-cooked shrimp. I consider shrimp a superfood because it’s not only high in protein, but also low in fat, and low in calories.

Did I mention that it’s just plain delicious?

For instance, 3 ounces of cooked shrimp provides 36% of your daily protein needs, yet contains only 84 calories and 0.9 grams of fat. Not only that, but shrimp is also an excellent source of selenium, a powerful antioxidant.

This dish is a fiesta of spicy, tangy, and savory, with a blast of freshness. And the thing I love most about it is that it takes only 6 minutes to prepare.

In fact, it’s dicing the veggies that take the most time. To make dicing them so much faster and your life easier, get a low budget food processor like this one.

It’ll save you a ton of time in the kitchen!

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 182
  • Fats: 6g
  • Protein: 21g
  • Carbs: 10g


6. Easy Egg Salad


If you’re looking for a different spin on your classic egg salad sandwich, this recipe is for you. Once you taste this egg salad, you may never go back to your classic egg salad sandwich.

Eggs pack a ton of protein and are very nutritious. For instance, one hard-boiled egg provides 13% of your daily protein needs, 15% of your vitamin B2 needs and 22% of your selenium needs.

Now, we all know how hard it is to make the perfect boiled egg. To keep the guesswork out of boiling eggs, I recommend using this high quality but cheap egg maker.

Then, to make your egg salad, just combine your boiled eggs, red onions, Dijon mustard, plain Greek yogurt, salt, and pepper… There you have an egg salad that is the perfect way to start your afternoon.

It’s a great high protein meal prep recipe that’s also vegetarian! Here is another vegetarian meal prep bowl recipe – spicy chickpea!

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 135
  • Fats: 8g
  • Protein: 11g
  • Carbs: 3g
  • Sugar: 2g


7. Blackened Fish Tacos


Are you in the mood for fish? Then, you’ve got to try these blackened fish tacos.

These Mexican inspired fish tacos have just the right amount of heat, paired with a yummy avocado sauce to cool your palette.

For this dish, we’re using tilapia, but you can use other white fish such as cod. I love white fish because it’s a good source of lean protein, perfect if you’re trying to watch your calories and fat content.

For instance, 3 ounces of baked tilapia provides 15% of your daily protein needs, yet contains only 36 calories and 0.7 grams of fat.

Another reason that I love white fish is that it is so easy to make, and takes so little time to prepare. This comes in handy when you want a healthy meal, but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.

To make the blackened fish, you’ll need to toss your tilapia fillets in some blackened seasoning. For this, we’re using a simple but tasty combination of salt, oregano, cayenne pepper, paprika and some high-quality organic garlic powder like this.

Once your fish is ready, place it in some tacos, add some avocado sauce, and your favorite taco toppings.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 401
  • Fats: 19g
  • Protein: 29g
  • Carbs: 30g
  • Fiber: 7g
  • Sugar: 1g


8. Keto Bang Bang Shrimp


Are you on a keto diet? We have the perfect shrimp dish that is high in protein, yet also high in fat.

This shrimp dish is tender, crunchy, and just plain delicious. In fact, I actually prefer this version to the traditional version.

Instead of using corn starch as the batter, we’re using parmesan cheese and almond flour. This gives the shrimp a cheesy, sweet, savory flavor that you won’t find in your regular bang bang shrimp.

If you want to eat healthier, I highly recommend incorporating more almond flour into your diet instead of the regular wheat flour. That’s the almond flour I usually stock up on.

Another way you can keep this recipe low carb is to crumble up some pork rinds and use them to batter up your shrimp. Add some coleslaw, and lunch is served!

9. Chipotle Chicken Meal Prep Lunch Bowls


If you’re tired of the same old boring chicken, you’ve got to try this recipe! This chicken looks and tastes good too!

These chicken thighs are juicy, spicy and tasty thanks to the marinade. The marinade is so amazing that it just may become your favorite chicken marinade.

For it, we’re using onions, garlic cloves, jalapeno peppers, cumin powder, oregano powder, olive oil, salt, and for extra heat, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I love these chipotle peppers in adobo sauce because they don’t contain any preservatives.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 458
  • Fats: 29.5g
  • Protein: 32.9g
  • Carbs: 16.2g
  • Sugar: 1g


10. Baked Cod


Is it possible to have a low calorie, high protein, low-fat dish that is also tasty? With this dish, we’ve got all your bases covered!

The fish dish is tender and flaky, and the lemon garlic sauce is buttery, tangy, and spicy. And the best part is we’re using everyday seasonings like onion powder, salt, and pepper.

Lemon juice gives the sauce its tanginess, so make sure you’ve got some on hand.

For this dish, we’re using cod as our protein, but you can definitely switch it up with other white fish like mahi-mahi, tilapia, and haddock.

Cod is perfect if you’re trying to cut down on your calories, yet still, feel satiated. For instance, 3 ounces of baked cod provides 39% of your daily protein needs, yet only contains 89 calories.

Serve this dish with some brown rice and steamed veggies, and you’ve got the lunch of champions!

If you consistently eat rice, it might be a good idea to get an instant pot like this one. You just throw in the rice, water and leave to do the rest.

This is my favorite appliance I own in the kitchen! Also, get more inspiration with your instant pot meals here.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 126
  • Fats: 5g
  • Protein: 17g
  • Carbs: 3g


11. French Onion Chicken Skillet


If you’re in the mood for some comfort food that is packed with protein, this is the dish for you! This dish pairs French onion soup with chicken, making it the perfect comfort food.

Topped with cheese, this tender chicken is smothered in gravy and caramelized onions, making this dish mmm…mmm…good!

For the gravy, we’re using flour, red wine, and beef broth, so if you don’t have any beef broth on hand, here’s some good quality beef broth. Knorr is my go-to brand for it.

And for some freshness, we’re roasting up some broccoli. To make the roasted broccoli, simply combine some broccoli with salt, garlic, pepper and a bit of olive oil, and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 400
  • Fats: 28g
  • Protein: 28g
  • Carbs: 8g
  • Fiber: 1g
  • Sugar: 1g


12. Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken


Are you in the mood for something spicy? Then, this dish is just for you.

This Buffalo chicken dish is tender, spicy, and has a hint of cheesiness. It is also packed with flavorful, crunchy veggies so you have a dish that is packed with protein and fiber, making for one very satiating meal!

In order to get tender, fall off the fork chicken, whilst also cutting down on cook time, we’re using an Instant Pot. If you don’t already have an Instant Pot, here’s a budget-friendly Instant Pot.

And in order to make the creamy, crunchy salad, we’re using romaine lettuce, scallions, grape tomatoes, celery stalks, avocadoes, and lime.

Loving these meal prep recipes so far, check out these high protein meal prep ideas I’ve shared a while ago!

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 466
  • Fats: 24g
  • Protein: 43g
  • Carbs: 22g
  • Fiber: 13g
  • Sugar: 6g


13. Hawaiian Pizza Chicken


If you could have pizza for lunch every day, would you? I sure would!

But let’s face it-pizza is packed with carbs. And when you eat too many carbs, you get that blood sugar spike and crash that makes you want to reach for doughnuts in the middle of the afternoon.

With this low carb twist on your favorite pizza, you can have a meal that tastes like pizza and avoid that sugar crash.

This low carb Hawaiian pizza chicken is packed with 40 grams of protein and has only 9 grams of net carbs. It is also cheesy, gooey, and tender.

To make this dish, simply top your chicken breasts with some pizza sauce like this. Then, add cheese and your favorite toppings.

For this dish, we’re using ham and pineapple-great if you love Hawaiian pizza! But if Hawaiian is not your thing, simply swap out the toppings.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 296
  • Fats: 11g
  • Protein: 40g
  • Carbs: 11g
  • Fiber: 2g


14. Easy Turkey Pinwheels


Are you looking for an elegant alternative to plain old sandwiches? Then, you’ll love this dish!

These turkey pinwheels not only look but taste amazing. Your co-workers will think you bought them at a deli.

For these pinwheels, you’ll need baby spinach, turkey deli meat, cream cheese, and some good quality tortillas like these.

To make these pinwheels, spread your cream cheese on the tortilla, then your deli meat. Follow this with your baby spinach.

Then, roll your pinwheel together, and voila- lunch is served! If you like these types of smaller snacks, using compartment food containers can come in handy for storing the foods.

These glass ones will keep the food fresh for much longer! However, these BPA-free plastic ones are just as good and a little bit lighter.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 485
  • Fats: 22g
  • Protein: 41g
  • Carbs: 32g


15. Air Fryer Pork Chops


If you’re looking for a low carb version of pork chops that tastes even better than traditional pork chops (in my humble opinion), you’ve got to try this recipe.

These pork chops are tender on the inside, yet crunchy on the outside. These pork chops are also nutritious. They contain 43 grams of protein and 0 carbs- perfect if you’re watching your carbs.

To make them no-carb, we’re replacing the breadcrumbs with crushed pork rinds. This not only makes the pork chops crunchy on the outside but extra flavourful as well.

Now, you can crush the pork rinds by hand, but I find that it is quicker and easier using a food processor. Here’s a budget-friendly food processor that I recommend.

To make these air fryer pork chops, dip your pork chops in some eggs. Then, dip them in a mixture of crushed pork rinds and seasonings (salt, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder).

Finally, place them in your air-fryer for light, low-carb pork chops that are simply amazing! Don’t have an air fryer, here’s a high-quality one you can check out.

Also, here are more low carb pork recipes you totally want to check if you like pork!

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 301
  • Fats: 12g
  • Protein: 43g
  • Carbs: 0g


16. Tuna Stuffed Avocados


Are you a fan of tuna salad sandwiches? Then, give this recipe a try!

Instead of placing the tuna salad in bread, we’re using avocados. Avocados are not only yummy, but they are also extremely nutritious.

For instance, one avocado provides 54% of your daily fiber needs, 53% of your vitamin K needs, and 41% of your folate needs.

These tuna stuffed avocados are creamy, spicy, and savory with a hint of sweetness. They’re also very easy to make.

To make them, combine tuna, red onions, celery, chives, salt, pepper and some Dijon mustard like this. Then place your tuna salad mixture in your avocado halves, and there you go- easy peasy tuna stuffed avocados!

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 478.4
  • Fats: 39g
  • Protein: 23.3g
  • Carbs: 12.8g
  • Fiber: 9.6g
  • Sugar: 0.9g


17. Salmon Meal Prep


If you’re looking for a lunch that will keep you satiated and also boost your brainpower, this is the dish for you.

Tender, flaky salmon combined with colorful, savory, zesty cauliflower rice, and delicious, spicy snap peas is just what the doctor- and your tummy ordered!

Salmon is not only delicious but also good for your brain. For instance, 3 ounces of baked wild Atlantic salmon contains a whopping 2 198 mg of omega-3s (great for brain health) as well as brain-boosting B- vitamins.

Now, we’re making the cauliflower rice from scratch. But if you’re pressed for time, feel free to use some organic riced cauliflower like this.

Once again, you’ll save a ton of money by getting a food processor and a vegetable steamer. Loving salmon, check this salmon meal prep here.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 402
  • Fats: 18.5g
  • Protein: 42.6g
  • Carbs: 16.6g
  • Fiber: 6.6g


18. Shrimp and Broccoli Foil Packs with Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce


I love shrimp. However, shrimp can get boring at times, but these spicy shrimp and broccoli foil packs with garlic lemon butter sauce are anything but boring.

Baked in the oven, these shrimp are moist, tangy, spicy, smoky and just plain yummy. They are also super easy to make.

Now, I must say it’s the seasonings that take this shrimp dish over the top. For this dish, we’re using a mixture of onion powder, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and Italian seasoning.

We’re also baking the shrimp in foil packets in order to let the steam do the baking. So, you’ll need aluminum foil to wrap your shrimp.

I’ve recently started buying 100 %recycled aluminum foil by IF YOU CARE, totally worth it!

To make the foil packets, once you’ve filled your foil with the shrimp and broccoli, simply fold your foil over the shrimp and broccoli, and crimp the edges together.

These shrimp and broccoli foil packs are great on their own, but they’re also great with cauliflower rice or brown rice.

Per Serving (Calculated):

  • Calories: 415
  • Fats: 13.4g
  • Protein: 58.2g
  • Carbs: 22.5g
  • Fiber: 7.7g
  • Sugar: 6.5g


19. One Pan Honey Lemon Chicken


Are you sick and tired of washing pots and pans? Then, you’ll love this One Pan Honey Lemon Chicken.

Not only does it cut down on dish time, it only takes 5 minutes to prep. Then, the oven does the rest of the cooking.

This chicken is perfectly seasoned and comes out tender, savory, and sweet with a hint of heat-just how I like it.

To make this dish, you’ll need to line a baking sheet with some parchment paper and spray it with oil. Chicken breasts are very low in fat, so they tend to stick if you don’t coat them with oil.

Then, place your chicken breasts on the foil and season, arranging some lemon slices on the top. Then bake for 20 minutes, before adding some asparagus to the oven to grill.

Once done, serve with brown rice or baked sweet potatoes. Here are more chicken recipes that are perfect for meal prep. This honey garlic chicken is one of them.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 215
  • Fats: 3g
  • Protein: 25g
  • Carbs: 23g
  • Fiber: 1g
  • Sugar: 18g


20. Crispy Oven Fried Fish


If you’re a fan of frozen fish sticks, you’ll love these crispy oven-fried fish.  They’re healthier, contain more protein, and most importantly, are more delicious than frozen fish sticks.

I admit that I love frozen fish sticks; I used to eat them a lot as a kid. However, let’s face it, they can be so bland that you need to cover them in ketchup!

With these “fish sticks” however, you can skip the ketchup. They’re delicious on their own due to the seasonings.

For the seasonings, we’re using fine sea salt, ground paprika, dried onion powder, and dried garlic powder. We’re adding this to some all-purpose flour, breadcrumbs, and fine cornmeal for the breading.

Do consider using almond flour instead to make the meal more nutritious. All-purpose flour doesn’t have a whole lot to offer nutritionally.

Now, you’re probably wondering how to keep the batter from falling off the fish. Here’s the secret: bread the fish lightly, then dip it in egg, then dip in the breading again making sure to pack on as much of the breading as possible.

If you’re using almond flour, you can use exactly the same process to keep it on.

Once you’re done baking the fish, serve with coleslaw for a touch of freshness.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 390
  • Fats: 15g
  • Protein: 27g
  • Carbs: 33g
  • Fiber: 1g


21. Pan-Seared Mahi Mahi with Honey Lime Coleslaw


Are you tired of the same boring old fish? Then, you’ve got to try this Mahi Mahi dish.

This dish is sweet, smoky, and savory thanks to the spices. And, did I mention that it is also flaky?

If you’ve never tried mahi-mahi before, it has a mild taste and pretty much takes on the flavors of your seasonings.

Mahi-mahi is also pretty nutritious. It is low in calories and fat, yet high in protein making it perfect for a light, high protein lunch.

In addition, the coleslaw adds an extra touch of lightness and freshness to the mahi-mahi. And it’s so colorful and delicious that your co-workers may want to steal…ahem, try some of your lunch!

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 283
  • Fats: 12g
  • Protein: 36g
  • Carbs: 16g
  • Fiber: 3g
  • Sugar: 9g


22. Crock Pot BBQ Chicken Thighs


If you’re craving some barbecue chicken, but it’s too cold outside to fire up the grill. Or let’s face it, it’s too much of a chore to fire it up, then you’ve got to try these Crock Pot BBQ Chicken Thighs.

Yes, you heard that right- barbecue chicken made right in your crockpot! And these BBQ chicken thighs are so juicy, smoky, and delicious that they give grilled BBQ chicken thighs a run for their money.

To make these chicken thighs, you’ll need some dry mustard, ground cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, and of course barbecue sauce. If you’re running low on barbecue sauce, here’s a low-sugar barbecue sauce that I recommend.

These chicken thighs go great served on a bun with some coleslaw on the side. Yum!

If you don’t own a crockpot yet, here is a very cheap and sturdy crockpot that will do the job.

23. Best Grilled Salmon


If you’re looking to boost your brainpower and your protein intake, you’ve got to try this dish.

This salmon dish is flaky, tangy, savory and has a bit of heat- and is extra nutritious.

It is high in brain-boosting omega 3s and B-vitamins and high in protein. And best of all, it only takes 20 minutes to cook!

To create a crisp glaze on the salmon, we’re using a marinade made of seasonings, lemon juice, olive oil, and water. Now, to make clean up easier, you can use a large reusable zip log bag like this.

Once you’ve marinated and grilled your salmon, serve with some baked sweet potatoes, and a garden salad for a truly delicious and nutritious dish.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 643
  • Fats: 42g
  • Protein: 52g
  • Carbs: 13g

24. Baked Ham and Cheese Mozzarella Sticks


If you love fried mozzarella sticks, then you’ve got to give these baked ham and cheese mozzarella sticks a try. Not only are they packed with flavor, but they’re also healthier as well.

We’re baking these mozzarella sticks, adding a lighter touch to your traditional fried mozzarella sticks. We’re also adding ham, making for a cheesy, melt in your mouth mozzarella stick that is high in protein.

And you’ll be glad to hear that this recipe only calls for 5 ingredients. You’ll need some olive oil, garlic salt, mozzarella sticks, honey ham, and eggroll wrappers. Here are some budget-friendly egg roll wrappers.

These mozzarellas are delicious just as they are, but if you like dunking your cheese sticks, you could try dunking them in Dijon mustard!

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 557
  • Fats: 32g
  • Protein: 39g
  • Carbs: 25g


25. Creamy Garlic Parmesan Pork Chops


With fall arriving, now is the perfect time to think of pork chops. And these pork chops will not only warm your belly, but they will also keep you satiated as well!

These parmesan chops are delicious and oh, so creamy thanks to the parmesan garlic sauce. What’s more, you only need one pot- and lunch is served in 30 minutes.

What I love about the garlic sauce is that it is delicious, yet uses simple ingredients. You’ll need some seasonings, salted butter, parmesan, all-purpose flour, and some heavy cream.

To make it a meal, just add some roasted asparagus and potatoes, and you’re good to go!
