Hope it turned out well for you :-)

Have got loads in the freezer as I've added 200grms of lentils and two more stock cubes and whizzed it into soup - low fat, high in potassium and filling.

I tried adding the spinach but it has turned it all green. Healthier no doubt but looks emoticon

Good luck with the program !!

I really like this and it's vegetarian. I make two big batches over the weekend and freeze it for the week.

I make up the lentils to 140grms so there is more protein (and it's less sloppy). This week I'm adding some spinach into the mix to add more vitamins.

Hope it helps.

Forgot to add, you can get away with only using 1 tablespoon of oil easily).

Nuts are an excellent source of gas-free protein, as well as chicken, turkey, beans, peas, fish, cottage cheese, and peanut butter, parm cheese and Romano.

Pepitas.... 1 Ounce has 8 Grams of protein making them a smart snack or salad addition. Pepitas are already shelled

Yogurt has protein

Barley has soluble and insoluble fiber and has more fiber than oatmeal. It can help lower cholesterol, provides protein and b vitamins. Barley may aid in weight control because it helps control blood sugar and helps keep you full. Add barley to soups, cereals, salads, and other grain dishes such as brown rice dishes. Barley has good protein.

Beans and nuts are also good choices of plant-based proteins... quinoa and kasha which are extremely high in, cottage cheese, Mozzerella, and peanut butter, parm cheese,flaxseeds, chia seeds, pistachios, lamb, lentils, lobster, crab. tuna and oatmeal is good protein too too. A pork loin chop has protein, so does beef jerky.

Might help to know what you DO have. I can think of lots of non-chicken high protein dinners, but they all involve other meats.

I'm a vegetarian so protein is a big part of the equation. Here are some high-protein dishes that work for me:

Part skim ricotta pudding -- use Truvia or Nectresse, vanilla or chocolate, and some cut fruit such as bananas or berries. This is also good for breakfast.

Simple Tofu -- marinate in a dressing made from reduced-sodium tamari, ginger, garlic, strong mushroom stock, and herbs; throw on grill or bake

Seitan -- try in a stir-fry with vegetables

Beans -- try Edamame (soybeans) as an appetizer, or make a bean-themed meal such as tacos, chili, white bean/ kale stew, etc.

I forgot to get chicken from the store and was wondering what else I can make? I am trying to eat protein for every meal. I have eggs, but I don't really want them today! Any help would be greatly appreciated ! emoticon
