Protein.. name yours

Hi, i read a lot on here about the importance of proteins, high protein diets etc & just wondering how you get yours?? Chicken seems to be my main source, not intentionally, I just enjoy it & its something the whole family will eat. And yours..??

    I forgot about tuna, eat quite a bit of that too (albeit out of a can, not fresh tuna steaks) :p

    We raise chickens, both meat birds and laying hens, so chicken and eggs are eaten frequently, but we also eat a lot of venison and fish (all sorts). I eat beans and nuts daily.

    I wish I liked tuna.

    For me it's Greek yogurt, eggs, deli meat, chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, fish (usually cod or salmon), veggies, then extra from cheese, beans, low carb tortillas, and nuts. And a bit of protein powder once in a while.

    Yes if you could that would be great.. ;) ( im being sarcastic) grains, nuts & seeds really don't appeal to me but I think its something I should work on. Thanks.

    I won't be listing anything that hasn't already been mentioned but my main ones are chicken and greek yogurt. After that would be nuts, seeds, and dairy.

    Well grains, nuts, and seeds are not the best sources of protein anyway.
