Additives Pea protein, spirulina, and nutritional yeast (deactivated yeast) are consumed much like some seeds. Simply sprinkle 2 Tbsp. on food or add to smoothies. Our Natural Living department has a large selection of these and other protein additives. 4 5 Nuts & Seeds Nuts pack protein in snack-size portions (¼ cup). Seeds (2-Tbsp. serving) are tidbits of protein ninjas; sprinkle them on food and you may barely notice them. Both sneak in extra protein (and fiber!) to your diet. Find nuts and seeds in the Bulk Foods department.

Don’t consume 50 grams a day from just one source—instead, focus on variety. This list has foods in portions containing 5 to 10 grams of protein. Now imagine eating 5 to 10 of these foods in one day. This is what you would need to consume to reach your recommended protein requirement for that day.
