7 Dietitian-Recommended High-Protein Meats


Bison is my go-to protein-rich meat! Bison burgers are wonderful for reflux sufferers since they are lower in fat than beef yet have a delightful gamey flavor. Bison is rich in iron, zinc, B vitamins, and selenium.

Canned tuna

For easy and healthful protein, canned tuna is a great choice. Canned tuna packs 27 grams of protein per 3-ounce serving. Its comprehensive amino acid profile aids tissue repair and health.

Elk steak

Elk is often an overlooked meat source but it is tasty, lean, and full of nutrients. It contains the lowest amount of cholesterol and highest amount of zinc compared to beef .

Beef liver

Beef liver provides protein, vitamin A, and vitamin B12. Rinse the liver, soak it in milk for 30 minutes in the fridge, then sear it with caramelized onions for a delightful supper. 


Its high-quality, complete protein with all essential amino acids and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, known for their anti-inflammatory and brain-health benefits, distinguish it.


Turkey is rich in B-vitamins B6, B12, choline, and niacin, and is naturally low in fat. I love making turkey burgers in the summer and adding ground turkey to chili for a comforting meal on cold nights .

Goat meat

More common in middle eastern and mediterranean cultures, goat is another high-protein meat if you're looking for more options to add to your dinner rotation.
