Lists of high-protein food choices can be found on the United States Department of Agriculture’s ChooseMyPlate website and on Bodybuilding.com, as of 2015. The USDA website offers advice on healthy eating and implementing protein into a diet.
The USDA lists lean cuts of meat, including beef, lamb, pork and veal, as being top protein food choices. It goes on to recommend nuts and seeds, such as almonds, peanuts, pistachios, walnuts and pumpkin seeds for their protein content. Bodybuilding.com offers a top 40 list of the ultimate protein picks, ranging from Greek yogurt to eggs, 2 percent milk and cottage cheese, among other foods.
