I think a lot of the time, people eat the same small number of proteins over and over. Whatever diet you’re doing (Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean, etc), there’s a vast number of proteins that you could be enjoying.

Nutritional notes:

Nutritional information came from nutritiondata.self.com and includes the calories, fat, carbs, protein and the largest three vitamins and minerals (% DV).

% DV (daily values) are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.

Fish & Seafood

This is not an exhaustive list of fish and seafood options. It’s a list of 10 very popular seafood options – there are a ton more options you could be eating.

On the Mediterranean Diet, you should enjoy fish and seafood once, twice, or three times a week.

Poultry & Eggs

Again, this list isn’t exhaustive but it covers a variety you can find in grocery stores.

On the Mediterranean Diet, you should enjoy poultry and eggs as often as you’d like.

Red Meat

Red meat comes in a variety of cuts that you can eat and enjoy. The nutritional values given here are for ground meat. Different cuts will have slightly different nutrition.

On the Mediterranean Diet, you should enjoy (red) meat no more than once a week.
