Lean Protein Sources on the Paleo Diet

Hi. Lots of people have questions around how much protein is in an egg. The short answer is a fair amount – depending on the size and type of egg it is around 13 grams, which is roughly half the amount in a chicken breast or thigh. You can read a more detailed overview of the protein content of an egg and view other nutritional information in the this blog posting.

In any case, most Paleo diet programs include eggs as an approved part of our prehistoric eating patterns, and you can hard boil them ahead of time and have snacks for the entire week [or a protein source in almost any meal of the day].
