High protien - low fat snack ideas

Monday, April 12, 2010

While WW first (re)taught me how to eat 6 or so years ago, it's really only been on SP that I'm tracking multiple nutrients. I don't eat meat often, so I have a hard time getting enough protein. Using the nutrition guidelines to plan my day, I'm finding that I don't get enough protein, and I don't always want to change what I've planned for dinner. So here (for me to remember and someone else to learn?) are a few high-protein low-fat snack ideas that I can bring to work:
* cottage cheese
* tuna fish / sardines
* jerky (I wonder if I can get salmon jerky somewhere?)
* edamame
* lentils
* oatmeal (who knew?)
* an egg
* asparagus
* cauliflower
* watercress
* artichoke

  Getting enough protein was my major hurdle when I first started sparkpeople. The tuna, oatmeal and hard-boiled eggs added into my lunches; and salmon for dinner at least 2x/wk went a loonnggg way to getting me on the right track!

    Protein is an area that I am weak in. I do eat fish but not other types of meat. Thanks for the list!

    Thanks for sharing this list. You did a good job. It is so important to track your nutrients and Sparkpeople is a good place to do that. I found out that I am not getting enough calcium but I am getting too much sodium. Who knew? Thanks for the informative blog. Bonnie in Virginia emoticon

    This is a great list! Thank you for the great ideas.
My favorite high protein snacks are low-fat string cheese & yogurt.

  Sounds like a good list but there is still an awful lot on that list I would n't care for.
