I guess it depends on how much you want to "amp up your protein." How many grams per day are you trying to reach?

Four ounces of meat is about 25 grams so if you do a serving of meat per meal that's 75 grams. Add eggs (2 = 13 grams) or cottage cheese (1/2 cup = 14 grams) to your breakfast (or a snack) and you're up to around 90 grams for the day. Add in some small amounts from things like cheese or beans or nuts and you can easily reach 100 grams. That's how I plan my meals so I reach my target amount.
