Default Ways to get protein

I think for me protein is a key to not being hungry and eating all the time. Please list some ways of how you get your protein...

We probably all eat lots of boneless skinless chicken breasts..that's a given

What else?

protein shake, tuna, cottage cheese, red meat, chicken breast

These are my main ones (cottage cheese has a surprising amount of protein - but yogurt does not (darn))

Maybe this little chart will help with some ideas? The quantities are for a serving:

Eggs, Cheese, and Dairy

Cheese, light or fat free = 2 oz
Yogurt, low fat and sugar free = 8 oz
Egg whites = 4
Eggbeaters = ½ cup
Cottage cheese, low-fat = ½ cup

Fish

Any fish or shellfish = 4 oz

Meat or Poultry

Skinless chicken or turkey = 3 – 4 oz
Lean beef or pork = 3 – 4 oz
Lean deli meat = 3 - 4 oz

Meat Substitutes

Soy chicken patty = 1
Soy burger = 1
Soy hot dog = 1
Soy cheese = 2 oz
Soy milk = 8 oz
Soy nuts = 1/3 – ½ cup
Tofu = 4 oz

Try nonfat Greek yogurt. My brand (Fage) has 20g of protein in a 1 cup serving, for 120 calories.

My favs:

Egg white omlettes
Tuna - great plain and tossed in a salad
Yup - chicken breasts
Salmon
These veggies have the most protein, not tons (about 3gms per serving) but in the amount I eat, it definitely adds up - cauliflower, spinach, broccoli, brussel sprouts, asparagus

Protein powder. You can mix it into a lot of things to boost the protein content. DH even makes what he calls ' power ' muffins, with whole wheat flour and protein powder added.
