Protein is everything when it comes to forming beautiful lean muscle, maintaining glowing skin and healthy hair and staying satisfied between meals. It’s a macronutrient, which means your body needs a lot of it.

Newsflash: You don't have to get your protein from meat. Our go-to veggie sources are beans and nuts. Tossing some protein powder into your smoothie is another no-fuss way to get your glow on, and you can even amp up your pancakes, oatmeal and desserts with it.

We use our gluten-free, non-GMO Tone It Up Protein, but you can use any kind of protein powder you'd like — just make sure it's made with clean ingredients.

Socca This gluten-free flatbread is made from chickpea flour, and it comes together in minutes. The best part: You can top it with anything. Turn it into a healthy pizza or roll it up to make a wrap!

Maple Oat Pancakes Pancakes for lunch?! Why not. They're less likely to give you a sugar crash when you pack them with protein, which has the added bonus of lean muscle-forming effects. Make a batch of these maple oat pancakes to heat up at lunch for a sweet meal.

Black Bean Tacos Taco Tuesday, anyone? Put these vegetarian tacos together at lunch, or enjoy them for a protein-packed dinner. We use romaine lettuce to wrap up all of the taco goodness, so they’re zesty, nutritious and low-carb.

Coconut Snowflake Bites We like to have protein-packed bites stashed in our purse for a healthy snack while on the go. This recipe tastes like cookie dough and is packed with protein and healthy fats to keep you satiated between meals — no cooking required.

Super Slim Burger This slimming burger is so light and delicious. Throw it on the grill with some asparagus for the ultimate de-bloating meal.
