Some of things I eat are, chicken, peanut butter, greek yogurt & cream cheese whip, whole wheat pasta and bagels, low fat milk, fat free lattes, and nuts. Some of these are higher in fat and calories, but in moderation they can be filling, yummy, and help you boost your protein intake for the day.
thank you all soooo much! really great ideas! I'm sure these will help me!

I use chicken, salmon (other fish/seafood), occassionally turkey or pork (like a tenderloin), low fat cottage cheese, Greek yogurt (the last two are multipurpose, I use them as mayo, salad dressing, in smoothies, in pancakes, as sour cream, as dip, or plain with fruit), I eat a lot of black beans (in salads usually), whole grains have more protein than refined grains (like quinoa, steel cut oatmeal, whole grain breads), split peas/lentils, eggs/egg whites, nuts/nut butters, seeds.
Try my recipe for black bean brownies: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta il.asp?recipe=2433419
I add 1/2 cup of beans to my salads I have a greek yogurt with my breakfast I have 1-2 servings a day of fish or lean poultry 1/2 cup cooked quinoa either on a salad or as a side I don't eat eggs or most cheeses, but I do have fat free feta cheese on a salad A handful of nuts, or sprinkle almonds on a yogurt And my sardines. I eat a pouch that has 16 grams and 70 calories.
Hard Boiled eggs. If you just eat the white its 17 calories for 3.6g of protein. Greek yogurt is great source. Chicken I bake or broil tenderloins that I fileted for sandwiches or tear apart and dip in hummus. Or deli turkey breast (70 cals with 12g of protein) rolled with a 2% or reduced fat cheese. Talipia is good and easy to thaw and cook. Hope these help Heather
