I like pork loin. I usually buy a whole one when they're on sale. Bring it home, slice it up, trim off all the fat. Freeze in single-serve packages wrapped in foil. Or (like I just did this morning) slice some for the freezer, and then leave a large chunk whole, to do in the crock pot. I've got Crock Pot Pulled Pork (recipe here on Spark) cooking for tonight's dinner. Should make plenty of leftovers-- there's only 2 of us. I'll freeze some of the leftovers to use as a quick supper this summer when I don't feel like cooking.
Or even go meatless a couple nights a week. I like lentils, they cook faster than, say, dried white beans. Lots of recipes for lentils. We like homemade vegetable soup-- I always add beans and rice, for the protein.
Cheese and nuts are protein foods too, but you need to be a little careful because of the fat content.
