Take a look at 7 ways you can add protein in your diet:

1. Dahi/curd or Greek yogurt - Enrich your daily diet with the goodness of curd or greek yogurt. Just one serving of a Greek yogurt will give your body 18 grams of protein. And a bowl of curd has 23 grams of protein. These fermented dairy products will provide your body a wholesome nourishment. It is not only protein-rich but also has calcium and gut-friendly bacteria.

2. Nuts - Nuts are a great source of healthy plant-based protein. Make it a habit to munch on a handful of nuts (peanuts, almonds, walnuts, pine nuts, cashews, pistachios, Brazil nuts) everyday. It could serve as a snack or on the go. To ramp up your protein intake you can also infuse your curd or yogurt or smoothie with an ounce of nuts. Also, by adding nuts to your salad, breakfast cereal, oatmeal, you can ensure your body is getting the right amount of daily protein intake.
