A handy guide to protein in some common foods. Don’t be misled though - although whole eggs do not contain “a lot” of protein, they provide biologically necessary rations of protein, healthy fat, and critical nutrients. Egg whites contain the highest amount of protein relative to their calorie content (they are nearly 100% protein). And while quinoa cannot be considered a sole protein source, it is still the grain highest in protein and is a smart addition to any nutritionally-dense diet. Remember that a balanced, healthy diet contains a moderate balance of all food groups to ensure you are receiving the nutrition your body needs.
