How can I build muscle without Protein Powder?

Of course you can! There are a great many high protein foods you can consume to supply your muscle building needs. Foods high in protein include meat, dairy, eggs, beans, peas, lentils, root vegetables, nuts and seeds. The difficulty without protein powder, is consuming enough protein for substantial muscle growth without consuming too many saturated fats, cholesterol or carbohydrates. Protein powders simply allow for simple protein delivery without the need for careful balancing of whole foods as well as the need to eat substantial amounts of protein.

Eggs however have been a favored source of protein for a long time prior to protein powders. In fact they have been popular for increasing protein intake and muscle mass for centuries. Egg whiles especially have a very high protein content without the saturated fats. If you are looking to supplement with whole foods, eggs are a good start.
