We’re all aware that protein is the number one nutrient athletes and bodybuilders dig for. It’s so popular even though not everyone knows how it works.
This nutrient is found in almost every part of your body, including the muscle, hair, bones, and skin. It maintains your muscle, curbs hunger, boosts strength, and so much more. It also makes a great recovery meal!
So if you want a morning pick-me-up for when you hit the gym, here are the best on-the-go protein foods, as listed by Steven Stiefel on Muscle and Performance:

People often question vegetarians and vegans about where they get their protein. There are tons of plant-based options! There’s the nuts, broccoli, tofu, beans, legumes and more.
Note, though, that the best on-the-go protein foods are those that are packed with other essential nutrients. As you know, there are protein-rich meals that are high in that nutrient, but also contain other harmful ingredients like added fat and salt. Choose whole foods over processed foods. If you want even better results, prepare and get creative with your own meals.
