Tired of chicken for your protein source?
I recently read a post where several people complained about being tired of chicken as a good source of protein in their diet. Well here are a few more ideas for protein rich, low cal/carb foods:

Cabot No Fat Vermont Style cottage cheese (13 g prot, 70 cal, 5 g carbs per 1/2 cup),

Jack Link's Original turkey jerky (15 g prot, 80 cal, 3 g carbs per 1 oz. if you can take the sodium),

Starkist chunk light tuna in water (pouch) (18 g prot, 80 cal, 1 g carbs per pouch),

Light & Fit Greek yogurt (12 g prot, 80 cal, 8 g carbs per 1/3 cup).

Edamame is a good protein source when you just need something different,

and if you are a carb junkie like me and love hot cereal, Hodgson Mill Multigrain hot cereal, with milled flaxseed, soy, wheat germ, and cracked whole wheat (I do mix it half and half with oatmeal, because is is very strong on the soy flavor).

By the way, the lowest calorie, highest protein wraps I have ever been able to find are Xtreme Wellness (I know, stupid name) Spinach & Herbs tortilla wraps by Ole Mexican Foods (7 g prot, 74 cal, 12 g fiber, and only 5 net carbs per 8 inch wrap).

Anyone else have suggestions for high protein/low calorie sources? (It has to taste good!).
