Edamame is a good source of protein.

I have a side of grassfed beef in the freezer along with some venison from our fall black powder hunt. I also eat free range chicken, turkey, raw tree nuts (almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts), chia & flax.

Sorry for the advertising, but Detour Lower Sugar Whey Protein bars are the best.

I'm trying whey protein shakes. I admit I like soy smoothies with fruit better.

I'm usually under but I'm making some black bean/ chick pea humus. A large batch so I can freeze some. I am also using flax seed & looking at whey. emoticon

Deviled eggs in the fridge for husband, lots of canned fish, like sardines, Kippered Snacks, tuna, smoked oysters kept in the cabinet. Grill extra burger patties, keep in the fridge for just eating or sandwiches. Chicken pieces in the fridge for snacks, hard cheese in one ounce serving sizes and wrapped in the fridge, ready to go...........

I really like Hard Boiled Eggs to have for snacks and it helps me get in protein. Plus, I love my bacon...Mmm...meat candy!

I am nearly always under my protein suggested range! I'll use some of these suggestions, too. Protein powder is so expensive, though.

My choices are somewhat constrained since I get hives from most nuts and many seeds, which are often suggested as good sources of protein.

I keep plain, Greek yogurt on hand as well as protein powder. I'm not afraid of whole eggs, either.
