This menu includes a variety of nutrient-dense foods that are rich in protein. The protein recommendations for adults over 50+ can vary based on individual factors, but a general guideline is to consume 0.8 to 1.2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day.  The average adult needs a minimum of 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day.  One kilogram equals 2.2 pounds, so a person who weighs 165 pounds, or 75 kg, would need about 60 grams of protein per day. Adjust the portion sizes and consult your healthcare professional or registered dietitian/nutritionist to tailor the menu to your needs.

The healthiest protein options are plant sources, such as soy, nuts, seeds, beans, and lentils; lean meats, such as skinless, white-meat chicken or turkey; a variety of fish or seafood; egg whites; or low-fat dairy.
