Most busy lawyers could benefit from getting more high-quality protein into their diets to keep them healthy and fully functioning for a jam-packed day. Here’s a list of my favorites that include lean meat; eggs; dairy; beans, legumes and nuts; veggies, grains and supplements that are high in protein.

Everyone’s daily protein needs are different depending on body type, activity level, body composition goals and other factors. The amount of protein you need at each meal also varies. It’s generally accepted that 20 to 35 grams of protein at a time is the most efficient. Unless you are really trying to bulk up (uncommon for a busy lawyer), that’ll likely do the trick.
