Protein is essential for strong muscles and a fast metabolism to help you look lean and strong. But if you thought beef and chicken were your only options for protein -- or soy if you don't consume meat -- you might be surprised at how much these everyday foods offer (with a few superfoods thrown in the mix).

Protein Superfood: Corn
Protein Per Serving: 2 g per 1/2 cup
How to Try It: Fresh corn salsa with chopped tomato, black beans, jalapeno and fresh lime juice is filling and full of flavor -- just swap the chips for cucumber slices.

Protein Superfood: Peas 
Protein Per Serving: 3.5 g per 1/2 cup
How to Try It: Fresh peas taste delicious in a salad or mixed into cooked rice or grains for a burst of green.

Protein Superfood: Hemp Seeds
Protein Per Serving: 13 g per 1/4 cup
How to Try It: Ground hemp seeds can be blended into a protein shake to add an extra boost of muscle-feeding protein.

Protein Superfood: Spinach
Protein Per Serving: 3 g per 1/2
How to Try It: Spinach is one of our favorite smoothie ingredients. Spinach has a milk flavor that blends perfectly with fruit to sneak in some greens.

Protein Superfood: Quinoa
Protein Per Serving: 8 g per cooked cup
How to Try It: Cooked quinoa can easily be combined with fresh parsley, mint, tomato and lemon juice for tabbouli, which has a bright, fresh flavor.

Protein Superfood: Potato
Protein Per Serving: 3 g in 1 medium potato
How to Try It: Roasted potatoes paired with carrots and beets is a fantastic side dish packed with beneficial nutrients.

Protein Superfood: Part Skim Ricotta Cheese
Protein Per Serving: 14 g per 1/2 cup
How to Try It: Ricotta cheese can be mixed into baked goods for moisture and a slightly tart flavor. Pair it with some fresh lemon and reduce the other fats you use.

Protein Superfood: Broccoli
Protein Per Serving: 2 g per 1/2 cup
How to Try It: Don't overcook your broccoli! Quickly stir-fry it in just a touch of sesame oil with edamame, bell peppers, tofu and a splash of soy sauce substitute.

Protein Superfood: Shrimp
Protein Per Serving: 12 g per 3 oz
How to Try It: Who doesn't love shrimp? You can cook them so many ways. Top a salad with them, add some to that stir-fry or make a delicious wrap with fresh avocado and cucumber.

Protein Superfood: Brussels Sprouts
Protein Per Serving: 2 g per 1/2 cup
How to Try It: Roasting brussels sprouts gives them an almost meaty quality and reduces the bitter flavor. Just a touch of olive oil, salt and pepper and you're good to go.
