Alot of foods are "rich" in proteins. You want to make sure you are consuming foods that have protein containing the 8 essential ammino acids i.e.animal proteins and soy. You want to make sure you are ingesting easily assimilated protein. As a powerlifter and personal trainer for almost 40 yrs, I'd suggest eggs and dry powdered milk (whey.) Stay away from beef. Eat chicken, fish, beans and rice...etc. Go to Google for foods rich in protein and combinations of vegetable proteins that when combined create "complete" protein. Qwark
I'm a nutrition therapist. Actually, avocados are not high in protein. They're very high in monounsaturated fats, though. Check out any food at the USDA food database at http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/. It tells you which nutrients are in which foods. The best sources of protein are:
It usually depends on what ratio of fat to protein you are looking for. Take meat for example, it is generally equal in volume of protein to fat, where as fruit has little fat and little protein. Fat is defined as softener, so natural oils in foods count as fat bases.
For optimum health: make sure you have an equal healthy dose of protein-fats, else the sugars in food cannot work correctly, the vitamin and minerals will not dissolve in your body, leaving you hungry again and unhealthy.
You need the protein-fat interaction to assist in "burning" the sugar w/ your bodies acids.
Protein and fat allow the process to flow instead of fast burn or no burn at all, while extracting nutrients.
