Thanks for the suggestions so far!

Are there brands of sausages you'd recommend? I bought some chicken andouille from Trader Joe's but it's pretty high in fat emoticon

LGREGG07 provided a pretty comprehensive list. If you're looking for a supplement- try Muscle Milk.

Friendship cottage cheese is a high protein, low carb food which is pretty tasty. I get the whipped one and use it in place of mayo for tuna or egg salad which I eat like a dip with veggies instead of bread.

fish (salmon, tilapia, cod, etc)
lean turkey
lean beef
chicken sausages
edamame (go great on salads)
nuts (might be higher in fat than you want though)
greek yogurt

there are lots of ways to add protein into your lifestyle! (:

My carb intake is right where I want it, but I'm really struggling to up my protein while lowering my fat. (My ideal ratios are 40% carb, 30% protein, 30% fat.) I've started eating egg whites instead of whole eggs. What are some other good protein choices without adding carbs? I'd love suggestions on good cuts of meat. It seems like all my favorites are high in saturated fat!
