Everyone on here has given most of the tips I would have given too. I would second the greek yogurt suggestion - full of protein. 1 cup has as many grams of protein as a piece of fish! I don't know where you shop, but at Walmart I can usually find 96/4 ground beef, which is super lean. I like to fold in chopped red onions, some greek seasoning, kalamata olives (chopped), and a little feta cheese for a greek burger on the grill. The onions, olives, and cheese add some extra moisture so the burger doesn't dry out as much.

I would also say that I like to make an egg salad because it tastes like I'm eating junk food! I hard boil about 3 eggs, cut out 2 of the yolks, add celery, onion, garlic salt and a little fat free mayo or light miracle whip and some spicy brown mustard. Eat alone, with crackers, or my favorite - atop a Thomas multigrain light English muffin for even more protein and lots of fiber.
