In the US, tempeh can be found in health food stores. Warning - store bought tempeh will probably be severely disappointing to you. On the Spark team, "Kombucha Kurious and Fond of Fermenting," there is a thread dedicated to the making of tempeh. Fresh tempeh is DELICIOUS! I imagine that is more like what you are used to. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

Where do you find tempeh? I got hooked on that when I lived in Indonesia - can't find it anywhere!

I tend to try and get protein at every meal, but more recently, I've been aiming at protein snacks. My go-tos are cottage cheese, raw almonds and raw cashews. I know the raw don't taste as good as roasted, but they're better for you by far and make for a better snack.

Also, recently have been trying to avoid carageenan in my foods -- for those of you who like almond milk, I recommend making it at home (lots of recipes on the internet) -- Carageenan can cause joint stiffness which will hurt your lifting.

Thank you, I should really try to play around with those. emoticon

You can make your own protein bars that suit your dietary requirements. I made up this basic recipe: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=2374782
These bars are vegan; they have 120 calories, 13 gr protein, and 12 gr carbs. This is a basic recipe meant to be played with. I have used many kinds of nuts, eliminated the dried fruit, added kale pulp, added chocolate chips....My goals were to make a lowish carb and vegan protein bar. Eliminating the raisins and dried cranberries, adding nuts, real nut butter and your choice of protein sources....could up the protein and decrease the carbs. The SP recipe calculator makes this kind of experimentation easy.

I wish they made a protein bar that does not increase my blood sugar level too much. Even the so-called low-carb Quest bars were spiking it.

I eat eggs everyday for breakfast.
And I've been splitting protein bars for snacks.
But I think I need to up it a level.
