If you're trying to eat a diet that's high in protein for whatever health goals you may have, dinner might sometimes feel a little mundane. Maybe you've been eating chicken breasts on repeat and are in need of some inspiration. We've got you covered. These 20 recipes are not only high in protein, but also feature plenty of variety as well. A handful are meaty, but half of the recipes here provide rich sources of vegetarian protein — so you can branch out from routine if you'd like to.

Meaty High-Protein Dinners

Vegetarian High-Protein Dinners

You don't always have to reach for meat if you're looking for a high-protein meal. Tofu, beans, lentils, and even quinoa are rich in the nutrient and can be combined for even more of a punch.
