Here are my favorite 5 quick high protein meals for the busy family.
Our kids love to play sports. They wrestle, play football, soccer and a few other things. My wife and I try to think of meals for the busy family because we usually have about 30 minutes to eat before we are off to our next practice (during sport’s seasons, that is).
Here are 5 quick, high-protein meals for our (and your) busy family:
1- Go for something that keeps them full longer.
Our latest go-to find is the NEW! STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen meals because each one takes just 10 minutes to prepare. I think that the reason that we pick these is because they are available in six varieties, so the kids won’t complain that we are having the same thing night after night. (If your house is like our house, you probably hear “Chicken, again?” a few times a week. This solves that issue.
(Here is a picture of where to find them at Wal-Mart )
My favorite flavor is the Steak Fajita (tender prime rib steak in smoked red chile sauce with a mix of red and green peppers and seasoned brown rice).
My wife loves the Cilantro Lime Chicken (white meat chicken with black bean and corn mix and seasoned brown rice with a verde tomatillo sauce) and our kids like the Rotisserie Seasoned Turkey. (A few other favorite are the Bourbon Steak, Oven Roasted Chicken & Monterey Chicken). They are perfect for a meal before sports because they are packed with 25 grams of protein or more.

2- Chicken Salad.
This one is easy because we buy a rotisserie chicken (we can get this for a few dollars at our store). We put black beans, cheese (usually feta for the grown-ups and mild cheddar for the kids). We drizzle olive oil and lime or lemon juice over it.
4- My favorite shrimp pasta recipe (you can find the full recipe here)
5. Chicken Parmesan.
This is our son’s favorite recipe. In fact, all of the kids love it. It is baked, so I feel good about giving it to them. Plus, I usually serve it with a side of pasta, so they are getting the carbs that they need on top of the protein.
What is your go-to meal on a busy night?
