We love protein powders. But these healthy protein products derived from whole foods impressed at Natural Products Expo East 2018.

Here, you'll find natural ingredients packed with protein not from concentrated isolates, but from whole-food sources such as quinoa, beans and eggs. These products are more often than not convenient, too.

Whether they be frozen or packaged in heat-and-eat bags, incorporating more high-quality protein—and fiber and vitamins and minerals—into your diet is now more feasible than ever. Watch this trend video to learn our favorite protein-dense finds.
