Protein, protein, protein

Here’s a list I ganked of how to get all the protein in. I deleted all the crap I know I won’t eat (like mussels, gross!):

  • Slim fast low carb shakes…20 protein grams
  • Stallone high protein pudding…20 grams You can also make your own using vanilla protein powder and jello brand pudding in the little containers.
  • Yogurt….you can also add protein to it and eat it
  • Cottage cheese or cottage doubles…11 grams of protein plus good carbs with the fruit.
  • South Beach breakfast bars…10 grams of protein
  • Refried Beans
  • Chili…25 protein grams
  • Crab cakes…11 grams min.
  • Crab legs
  • Tuna…whole can is 26 grams…half is 13
  • Cheese cubes 2%…9 grams per 7 pieces
  • Corned beef hash….20 grams per cup…2 cups per can I do realize that it’s a little high in calories but if you figure your day around it you will be able to have it.
  • Peanut butter
  • Turkey slices (3)…gives you 9 grams of protein
  • Chicken Breast…25 grams
  • Turkey Breast
  • Power crunch bars
  • Filet mignon…or other quality cuts of lean meats…25 grams or more
  • Cream soups…about 9 grams
  • Protein shakes…23-34.5 grams I mix mine with crystal light for flavor. I have trouble drinking it straight from the tub.
  • Atkins high protein bars…5 bars to a pack with 14 grams
  • Liquid protein from GNC…18 grams from 3 tablespoons of liquid
  • Turkey mignon….I found these at Aldi’s for 4.99 for a 4 pack.
  • Kashi high protein cereal…also good for fiber source. And you can also throw a handful of kashi in with your high protein pudding to boost the protein and add some fiber.
  • Canadian Bacon…3 slices if you can eat them
  • Spinach Quiche…7 grams…for the recipe just ask. And its good carbs to boot
  • Pepperoni and cheese…I use the stars and moons cheese for this and buy one pillow pack and eat about 5 of them…sometimes I add crackers if I want a little carb and make it into a lunchable type meal.
  • Deli chicken slices wrapped in boston lettuce
  • Nuts…peanuts, pistachios, cashews, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds (without the shell). Just watch your sodium intake when eating them.
