Thank you all for the great suggestions! I knew I'd find a wealth of knowledge from experience here! My only question now is which one to try first!

If you're sick of starting over, stop quitting.

Can you reduce elsewhere else in your diet? PB may be higher in calories but it has healthy fats, which your body needs (which is why I never understood the science behind PB2, which extracts healthy oils and nutrients in favor of low calories). A good, high protein option for breakfast is a whole egg scrambled with a little bit of chopped garlic, black pepper and veggies of your choice. If you can afford the calories, sprinkle a little bit of shredded cheddar on top and let it melt. Yummy!

PB2 (peanut flour, technically, but with fat removed) mixed with LF cream cheese would probably work.

I see that you are from NZ. I often use Flora Ultra Light spread (can't call it margarine) and then use cottage cheese. Nice on toast with a couple slices of tomato on top. OR cottage cheese, on toast, and use a potato peeler to slice a couple slices of Bega Light Vintage Cheese. Tons less calories using the potato peeler to slice it, and the Bega Light has a lot less calories than the usual cheddar, but continues to be a source of protein. Also, take a look at your bread. Burgen does a beautiful Weight Management bread which is high in protein and fairly high in fibre, and Freya's Soy/Linseed Thins are an excellent source of protein, fibre and lower fats/calories. My Dietitian really likes both of them, particularly the thins. They are both fairly low in carbs, for a bread.

SARDINES ARE LOADED WITH PROTEIN. COQ10 is one of the good features sardines have and they are heart healthy.

Mash sardines add chopped onion and a pinch of dry mustard, chill use as a spread.
Balsamic vinegar gives sardines a nice zing.
Top sardines with chopped tomatoes and basil, oregano, or rosemary.
Combine sardines with chopped onion, olives, or fennel.

I've been enjoying peanut butter on ryvita for morning tea for a month now, and feel it might be time for a change. As my recommended calories is decreasing, do you have any suggestions for a low fat spread that is still high in protein?
