    11 New Mealtime Muscle Boosters
    Because you just can't eat another boneless, skinless chicken breast with brown rice

    By: Phillip Rhodes



    Shrimp

    Three ounces--about 12 large shrimp--has almost 18 grams (g) of protein.

    Oysters, clams, mussels

    Three ounces of oysters will net you 11 g of protein, while the same amount of clams or mussels has nearly double that.

    Quinoa
    That's "keen-wah." Think of this South American grain as rice with a turbocharger. It has more protein than any other grain (22 g per cup). You can find it at health-food stores and many upscale grocery stores.

    Couscous
    Pasta is not the only energy food. Couscous is easy to cook--all you need is water, a microwave, and about 2 minutes.

    Sloppy Joes

    Beef has a higher creatine content than any other food. Try making it with Manwich Original Sauce. Dodging fatty toppings will save you nearly 20 g fat, says Cynthia Sass, M.P.H., R.D., a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association.

    Baked beans
    "A half cup serves up 6 g each of protein and filling dietary fiber," says Sass. Avoid extra saturated fat by choosing vegetarian baked beans.

    Portobello mushrooms
    "They're a great way to serve stuff. Just fill the cap with some diced chicken, pour in tomato sauce, and bake it for 10 minutes," says Vinny Steinman, a chef in San Diego. "It's a plate you can eat." And one with 1.5 g fiber and 2 g protein.

    Prunes
    Okay. Laugh. But they have high levels of antioxidants, and damaging oxidative stress is often a result of heavy exercise, says Janet Walberg Rankin, Ph.D., a professor of human nutrition at Virginia Tech. So eat up, and help your body recover faster.

    "Fried" chicken
    Chicken breasts are expert protein-delivery systems. You're also sick of them. So try this fake-out tactic. "Dip the breast in a beaten egg and roll it in a mixture of crushed cornflakes, salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes, or until golden brown," advises Katherine Tallmadge, R.D., author of Diet Simple.

    Oatmeal also works pretty well for this purpose instead of cornflakes.

    Fried chicken is an excellent idea to make a good change of those boiled breasts.
