7 Protein-Rich Foods for Better Blood Sugar Control

Maintaining steady blood sugar is a goal for everyone, not just diabetics. Some foods raise blood sugar. Blood sugar crashes after high levels. That can make you fatigued and hungry.

1. Eggs

Eggs are nature's nutrient. One big egg offers 6 grams of protein, plus other nutrients your body needs.

2. Salmon

Salmon—or other fatty fish—is a fantastic way to get protein if you like seafood. A 3-ounce cooked salmon fillet offers 28 grams of protein and no carbs.

3. Sirloin Steak

More than 22 grams of protein and nutrition are in a 4-ounce sirloin steak for dinner.

4. Cottage Cheese

Whole-milk cottage cheese is a great source of calcium, vitamin A, phosphorus, beta carotene, and 13 grams of protein per half-cup.

5. Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is delightful whether creamy or crunchy. Two tablespoons include roughly 8 grams of protein, fiber, magnesium, zinc, vitamin B3, and folate.

6. Chicken Drumsticks

Try chicken drumsticks instead of breasts, which may be bland. Dark meat drumsticks are delicious and include 25 grams of protein per cooked.

7. Mixed Nuts

Even peanuts, which we name nuts but are legumes, are high in protein.
