Default Protein packed foods

Hey everybody! Iím looking for some protein packed foods. I dont really want to use protein shakes and powders. I know lean meats like chicken are packed, but I still need more protein. Any recomendations of food or recipes? Also any low carb high protein foods.

Thanks

I guess the usual suspects--lean beef, fish and fowl. I particularly enjoy a breakfast of a couple eggs (from my chickens) and 3 oz. of lean beef.

Regards,
Michael

I ate 4 cups of Non-fat Plain Greek Yogurt yesterday, with a packet of Crystal Light (flavored low-calorie drink powder) for flavor. It tasted good and gave me a lot of protein, without adding too many calories.

Soynuts and soybeans (edamame) have a lot of protein.

Def. greek yogurt. I get a few brands that have low fat,9gm of carbs and 23 gm of protien. I mix that with some protien powder and stevia-much like pudding.

Tried some firm tofu from my local Asian foodstore (Super 88 in the metro Boston area) yesterday. Needs something extra for flavor (my genius wife puts it in a spicy soup), but at a booming 25g protein per 3 oz serving, I haven't found anything else as protein-rich...

There is a brand of Greek yogurt called chiobani. I is plain Greek yogurt with blueberries in it. It is delicious and doesn't need any sugar at all. It is also great in a smoothie with a little milk some frozen strawberries and low cal sweetener or sugar! Also delicious.

When I lived in the states, I went to Costco, and they had these cans of salmon that were like a 6 pack for really an inexpensive price, it may have been 8 or 8.99 for the six of them.

It was wild salmon and had all the omegas, I believe.

Better than that it was delicious.
