Did you know that your body needs protein not just to build muscle, but to function properly? Protein is one of the core building blocks of life as it is integral to the growth and rejuvenation of our body's cells. Typical protein sources in Western diets include meat, fish, lentils, dairy, and beans. According to The Dietary Guidelines For Americans, men over the age of 19 require at least 56 grams of protein per day. Women and girls over the age of 14 require around 46 grams of protein per day.
While our base protein needs may vary from one person to the next, what doesn't change is their overall importance. If you find yourself struggling to consume the appropriate amount of protein per day, consider exploring a few of our favorite protein-boosting dinner recipes from Simply Tera's!
Super Boost Dinner With Protein-Packed Pancakes
Breakfast for dinner is one of the best meals of the day, and who can argue with that? If you are looking for a simple way to protein boost dinner with little more than the addition of protein powder, we have the right recipe for you.
Simply Tera's Banana Oat Protein Pancakes
- 1 Scoop simply tera’s pure bourbon vanilla whey protein powder
- Eggs (2)
- Banana (1)
- Old Fashioned Oats (1/8 Cup)
- Sprinkle of Cinnamon
To enjoy this protein-packed breakfast-for-dinner classic, all you will need is a mixing bowl, a fork, a frying pan, and some time. Mix and mash your banana into the medium mixing bowl before adding your other ingredients, including the eggs, oats, cinnamon, and whey protein.
After your ingredients have been mixed into a bowl, heat your frying pan or griddle after lightly oiling the surface with Carrington Farms Cooking Oil Spray. As the skillet heats up, you can begin slowly pouring enough batter to craft your ideal pancake. Allow the pancake to brown on the edges before removing it from the pan.
Finish off your protein powder dinner recipes by adding a few slices of fresh fruit, your favorite almond butter, and a natural syrup!

Who doesn't want to protein boost dinner with a delicious veggie-filled pizza? To nail this recipe simply start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. While that is preheating, you can shred a head of broccoli before microwaving it on high for two minutes. Set aside the broccoli when it is done.
While your broccoli is sitting, combine a bowl filled with flour, salt, pepper, and your favorite simply tera's whey protein powder. Mix very well. After this is complete, dry your broccoli with a paper towel before squeezing out all the excess moisture. Once done, combine your broccoli and eggs into the bowl of flour, salt, pepper, and protein. Follow suit with your Parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
Now it is time to spread your dough evenly atop your favorite pizza pan, heavily spread with a non-stick finish. You can bake at 400 for 10 minutes before letting it cool. Then add pizza sauce, remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese, and bake again for 12 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
