Affordable Sources of Protein

4 Protein-Rich Foods That Won't Break the Bank

Sticking to a healthy diet when you have money constraints can be hard. Healthy, whole foods aren't exactly the cheapest in the supermarket aisles, and when it comes to some of our most beloved protein sources like salmon fillets, the prices attached are sometimes enough to make your eyes water!
However, by stocking up on a few essentials, you can get the daily protein fix you need without breaking the bank. Read on for four healthy buys that are full of protein and budget-friendly.


If you're stuck on the fact that eggs are a breakfast food, there are a ton of recipes ready to disabuse you of that notion.
Eggs are relatively affordable, can be enjoyed at every mealtime, and are perfect for meal-prepping because there are a myriad ways to enjoy them. Enjoy them baked, boiled, or thrown into one-pan combinations of all your favourite things.


If you grew up on tuna sandwiches, you're well within your rights to have a clean break with this affordable fish and explore other options. That being said, ethically sourced, tinned tuna is a great addition to any diet because it's rich in healthy fats and vitamin D, packed with protein, and can be the basis of plenty of different recipes.



There's probably a tin of fresh chickpeas hanging out in the back of your kitchen cupboards. When you need a protein boost without the price tag of a prime steak cut, reach for these pulses. Chickpeas are made perfect by their high content of protein and fibre, and the fact that they can be enjoyed in soups, salads, or crunchy falafel doesn't hurt.


Tempeh is a byproduct of soy, much like tofu, it's main distinguishing factors being that it's made from fermented soy beans, is firm and chewy in texture, and has a higher protein and fibre content. The key to enjoying tempeh is to marinate it; once you've done that you can add it to your menu in several different recipes.
