Foods That Help Build Muscle

Eggs

Some call eggs the Perfect Protein. Eating the Yolk has it's benefits as well so you don't always have to go with just egg whites. The yolk contains Vitamin B12 which is necessary for fat breakdown. They also happen to be full of other vitamins and minerals including riboflavin, iron, phosphorus, zinc and vitamins B6, B12, D and E. The incredible edible egg is a pretty accurate slogan.

Almonds

They contain Vitamin E which is a great source of alpha-tocopherol which helps restore muscle after a heavy workout. So how many almonds should you have? About two handfuls a day seems to do the trick.

Salmon

Contains lots of high-quality protein and omega-3 fatty acids too. Omega-3s are good because they decrease muscle-protein breakdown which improves recovery and warrants more gains.
