1. Quinoa seeds

Quinoa is also packed with magnesium that relaxes blood vessels and improves blood circulation to the muscles.
Available at every grocery store, buying a chicken regularly surely won’t put a dent in your wallet. It has an amazing amount of proteins, which is best for gaining muscles.
Aside from this, chicken contains generous amounts of vitamins that help the body function properly during exercise.
3. Peanut butter
Did you know that one tablespoon of peanut butter contains 4 grams of protein? Yep, that’s how rich it is with protein, making it perfect for building muscle.
Peanut butter also contains monounsaturated fats and antioxidants and other nutrients that help the body stay healthy and function properly.
Eggs carry healthy fats, high-quality protein, and other important nutrients like B vitamins. Proteins are composed of amino acids and eggs have large amounts of amino acid leucine, which is especially crucial for muscle gain.
B vitamins also improve some functions of the body like energy production.
Salmon contains both long-chain omega-3 fats and high-quality protein. These omega-3 fats help inhibit muscle breakdown while boosting the anabolic capacity of amino acids. What’s more, it improves your heart health.
6. Greek yogurt
Greek yogurt is filled with high-quality protein, as well as both fast-digesting and slow-digesting protein. This mixture of two types of protein helps increase your lean mass.
But with Greek yogurt, you get twice the amount of protein as regular yogurt.
Nearly every muscle-building diet includes a generous dose of broccoli. That’s because it’s rich in sulforaphane, which increases testosterone and prevents body fat storage.
More than that, it helps lower the stress levels in the body, further aiding in your toned body efforts.
Avocados are a chock-full of potassium, monounsaturated, and oleic fatty acids, that can help reduce belly fat.
This fruit also carries high contents of fiber that boosts the healthful properties of other fresh veggies when eaten together.
As such, research suggests adding healthy fats like avocados to produce-rich dishes such as salad. Doing so will enhance the body’s ability to absorb nutrients.
