I’ve found plain greek yogurt to be a good “Go To” source for extra protein, although I prefer meat most of the time tongue emoticon Good with honey or any flavor of jelly.

I try to get at least 50g of protein a day to maintain whatever muscle I gained years ago at the gym. Seems to work well enough. I used to do 100g a day but then I had to eat a lot more fiber and drink a LOT more water.

 

oh yum smile emoticon I’m having breakfast at your place tomorrow tongue emoticon My diet is erratic – I keep strange hours, so wherever I find myself I have to think ‘on the fly’ and do some quick calculations in my head. [not specific numbers, just a ‘feeling’ of how much fat/protein/carbs I’m _probably_ eating].

The quick estimating ended up changing how I see food completely. Cheese, which I love, is generally a stick of butter with a couple of cubes of chicken. Peanut butter is also a stick of butter with a couple of cubes of chicken. I still use them for protein sources but thinking of them in that way keeps me from overdoing it smile emoticon
