Protein rich foods?

Postby milkyway » Thu Mar 08, 2007 1:41 pm

I have just started using Calorie King and have discovered that I need to inject more protein into my diet. Apart from the obvious, what are some protein rich foods/meals that are low in carbs that I could add to my daily food plan? I have a deficit of about 30-40g. Thanks :D

Thanks Kate - but apart from the obvious animal flesh, seafood, l/f milk and cheese, eggs and beans -- what other protein rich foods are there?

If I have half a tin of tuna as a snack, it'll help me creep up there towards my daily protein goal. I really hope I don't need to have a protein powder supplement (eew!)

I feel like I need a phD in nutrition to figure all this stuff out :lol: Can't wait until all this stuff comes naturally and I don't have to consciously think about it.

Tofu is yummy, having that for dinner tonight. Also, protein bars are a great way to indulge the choccy cravings- heaps of protein and usually barely any carbs :D sooo much better than actual chocolate!

Wholemeal pasta is higher in protein, 5g of protein for 100g cooked pasta. Even some breads, if you buy the decent kind, are higher in protein eg Noble Rise's Poppyseed & Sunflower which has 11.8g of protein per 2 slice serving..
Again, all your decent cereals eg All-Bran, which has 6.8g protein per 45g serve..

It's really surprising how many bread/cereal/pasta products have high protein.

Next time you go shopping, check out the nutritional info on breads, pastas, cereals etc. You'll be surprised at the difference between something like a white, wholemeal or multigrain bread and a decent wholegrain bread.

Of course, then there's all your obvious suggestions like eggs, lean meats, dairy products, baked beans etc etc.

Hope this helps :)

Almonds have got heaps of protein in them as well. Maybe try having a handful of almonds as a snack.
Keep on smiling,

I've taken on board your suggestions.

Today I bought some protein bars as one way of getting more protein in my diet and uh-oh, the peppermint choc Protein FX bar is rather yummy ... :P
