Pair proteins with these foods to accelerate your weight loss goal:
1. Chicken and vegetables
Chicken is a good source of protein as it contains all the essential amino acids. Chicken should definitely be included in your weight loss diet. However, if you pair chicken with vegetables like lettuce, asparagus, carrots and bell peppers, it will make your dish all the more nourishing aiding in quick weight loss. You can even have grilled fish with the vegetables of your choice.
2. Nuts and fruit or vegetable salad
Nuts like almonds, walnuts and pistachios have significant amount of proteins. You can make a nice salad for yourself. You can include vegetables like spinach, capsicum, carrots and nuts of your choice. You can even make a fruit platter for yourself and include these healthy nuts. Adding nuts to your salad will not increase the nutritional value but will also give it a nice crunch.
3. Cottage cheese and pineapple
An excellent source of vegan protein, cottage cheese is a perfect choice for vegans or vegetarians. You can pair a slice of cottage cheese with the mouth-watering fruit pineapple. This combination will help you lose weight really fast.

5. Sprouts and lentils
Lentils are again a good source of protein. You can pair boiled lentils with sprouts to make it a weight loss friendly dish. The meal will keep you full for a long time and prevent you from overeating in the next meal. This dish can be a perfect and a filling early morning breakfast.
