Thanks everyone for the input.

To summarize:
Egg whites
Beans (of pretty much any variety)
Whole grains
Soy foods
Nuts

This should help. My goal is to lower my body fat and it has been recommended that I have more than 100g of protein a day, which I am finding difficult.

AUALIBRA: yes, I play hockey in a local rec league

I always use egg whites for cooking. If you need an egg to hold it togethr, the white does a better job than the yolk, anyway. It's pure albumin, which is pure protein. Without the fat and cholesterol. The vegetarian side is beans, and more beans, along with whole grains. The combination gives you a complete protein, which you can't get with just beans or just grains. There is plenty of variety, too.

egg whites - in an omelet, or I hard boil eggs and just eat the whites. you could stir fry them in with veggies, or cook them into soups, plus most everything you would use eggs for, you can substitute eggs whites and that increases the protein of those dishes.

Thanks for the tips. I'm not big into soy, but it's good to have the reminders. Seems I forget about the nuts and they would be good to have at the desk.

You could add a good HIGH protein smoothie to your diet, one that comes from soy, rice or hemp. Just remember, if it comes from an ANIMAL it has cholesterol in it, so vegetable sources work well.

Useful Foods to Lower Cholesterol

Beans, Peas and Lentil

Fish

Fish is an ideal food to lower cholesterol level. It meets the demands for omega 3, which is beneficial for lowering high blood cholesterol. It especially provides protection against LDL cholesterol. Omega 3 fatty acids are commonly found in mackerel, salmon, herring, sardines, tuna, and halibut. Fishes are the perfect option for getting omega 3, but you may also opt in walnuts, flax seeds, or almonds, to have the same benefits.

Garlic is known as kitchen's pride. Its medicinal property is highly respected among different cultures for several hundreds of years. It has the ability to fight against different cardiovascular diseases such as high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, and high blood pressure. According to the results found in different scientific studies, garlic helps lowering cholesterol level. Garlic has two compounds, known as allin and allicin.

The primary sources for deriving vitamin C are cabbage, oranges, potatoes, peppers, kiwi, and strawberries.

Alright, I'm still pretty new to focusing on my health goals. That being said, I'm trying to increase my muscle mass (which means increased protein), but I also have high cholesterol.

Does anyone have any good tips/suggestions on how to get lots of protein without lots of cholesterol?
