  • Burger. A burger will usually be at least 25 grams of protein. Pair it with a side salad, and you'll even get some veggies in!

  • Fish sandwich. This will only be around 15 grams of protein. If that is not enough protein for you, grab a takeout yogurt to go with it.

  • Burrito. A burrito with meat or chicken will contain around 30 grams of protein. If you choose a vegetarian meat alternative and add in beans, you'll have around 25 grams of protein. A bonus you get from adding the beans is more fiber to keep you full.

  • Chicken wings. You'll have to make sure the order comes with at least five wings, but that will get you 25 grams of protein. Consider how the wings are cooked--baked, grilled, or fried for more information on the nutrition.

  • Taco. A taco with beef or chicken and beans can provide about 15 grams of protein. Choose two tacos for an easy 30 gram protein meal. Adding lettuce or tomatoes is a great way to get in some vegetables too!

  • Egg sandwich or wrap. Breakfast for lunch... These yummy sandwiches can be nearly 15 grams of protein. Ask for a second egg to make it top 20 grams or protein.

  • Sushi. Choose a roll that contains fish, and you will have about 15 grams of protein, so two rolls will get you around 30 grams of protein.

Use this list of high protein meals for lunch from takeout when you have that busy day and need a boost of filling food.
