How to Achieve Your Protein Goals During the Summer - 6 Tips To Keep You Fueled!

Summer is a time for relaxation, fun, and enjoying the great outdoors. However, the hot weather can make it challenging to meet your protein goals, especially when cooking feels like a chore and your appetite diminishes.

Maintaining adequate protein intake is crucial for muscle health, energy levels, and overall well-being.

Here are my top six tips to help you stay on track with your protein goals during the summer!

1. Start your day right with Protein-Packed Breakfasts that don't require turning on your stove. 

Mornings are cooler, making it the perfect time to fuel up with a protein-rich breakfast. Consider making waffles instead of pancakes that won't heat up your kitchen. Pair with fresh berries for an added fiber boost. 

Or try one of our protein overnight oat bowls that will keep you fueled until lunch.

2. Stay hydrated with protein beverages

When the heat is on, hydration is key. Why not combine hydration with nutrition? Our tea latte mixes are perfect for creating a refreshing iced protein latte. Mix with cold milk and blend for a cool, satisfying drink that keeps you full and energized.

3. Incorporate protein snacks

Keeping protein-packed snacks on hand can help you maintain your intake throughout the day without heavy meals. Some of my savory faves are beef jerky, hard boiled eggs and pork rinds for the perfect alternative to potato chips!

Use our protein pudding to create a delicious snack for a day at the beach or a picnic in the park. Check out these recipes that use our pudding in a new way.

4. Opt for light, high-protein salads

Salads are a summer staple and can be a great source of protein when you add grilled chicken, tuna, or beef to your greens. One of my favourite recipes is a Big Mac Salad and for a delicious idea for tuna click here

5. Buy an air fryer

The best way to avoid heating up your house is to invest in an air fryer. While we use our BBQ a lot, I use my air fryer daily for a quick way to cook up protein for lunch. Chicken wings are my absolute favourite simple protein packed lunch! Not sure which one to buy? Check out my blog here.

6. Cool down with protein ice cream

Craving something sweet and cold but want to stay aligned with your wellness goals? Use our protein mixes to make homemade protein ice cream. Here's my guilt-free ice cream recipes to hit your protein goals.


Meeting your protein goals during the summer doesn't have to be a challenge. With a little creativity and the help of our high-protein baking and beverage mixes, you can enjoy delicious, nutritious meals and snacks that keep you cool and satisfied.

Remember, staying consistent with your protein intake is essential for maintaining your health and vitality, no matter the season. Enjoy your summer, stay hydrated, and keep fueling your body with the protein it needs!

Here's to a healthy, happy, and protein-packed summer!
