Protein: the top 5 sources for a boxer

Top nutritionist Marc Fell lists the very best protein sources for boxers

Nuts and seeds

5. Vegetarian sources
FOR those fighters who may be vegetarian or simply want to add different non-meat or dairy protein sources to their diet may benefit from such foods as beans, lentils, quinoa or buckwheat that are packed full of high-quality proteins and essential amino acids that can be added to such meals as salads – 50g of soy beans provides approximately 18g of protein. Adding a palm-sized serving of nuts and seeds, i.e. almonds and pumpkin seeds, to a salad, smoothie or simple snack can also provide a simple source of protein and fat.
