    Protein is always a hard one for me. I focus on eggs, chicken, and greek yogurt. I also love black beans.

    The only day I had 2 servings of chicken is the only day I've blown past my goal on protein intake.
    I begin with a protein shake. The Body Fortress brand from Wal-Mart is cheap enough and easy enough and even the milk has a few mg of protein in it. Later in the day I have a serving of fish, usually, or chicken. I also have a serving of beans with my dinner. Today this got my protein intake to 80 mg, which the recommended minimum.

    All of them.
    Except brussel sprouts. Those are evil.

    Lean meat including chicken, fish, turkey. Also really like black beans and quinoa. To make sure I hit my macro target I will use a grade 7 whey protein concentrate.

    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..??

    Chicken breast, ground turkey, and eggs are my top 3 sources.

    Chicken
    Turkey
    Cans of tuna in spring water
    Fresh fish (salmon, cod, haddock...)
    Eggs

    And if I'm short of time or can't face more food but need more protein, I've got a really nice isolate that's tasty and easy to digest. http://www.monkeynutrition.com/primal26-pro-advanced-whey-protein-isolate/

    I get a good variety whether it's from salmon, chicken, beef or even sardines (highly nutritious, low cal and tons of protein), turkey when it's in season. I also get protein from veggies, cheese, eggs, etc. I also just ordered some organic whey protein shakes to add to my diet for post workout meal as it will get delivered to my body faster b/c it's liquid meal and you have only 30 mins to 1 hour window to get protein in. My weight training workouts have been suffering a little so I want to add more energy and protein to it :)

    I make egg muffins with whole eggs, cottage cheese, spinach, and turkey bacon. Easy...Make for the week and heat in microwave.

    Other Proteins: Greek yogurt, for affordability chicken is a staple, ground turkey, occasional beef or pork, fish, hard boiled eggs. Lentils...mainly in the form of lentil sloppy joes. :p Oh string cheese! Lately string cheese and turkey pepperoni has been a good 100 cal snack at work.

    A can of tuna with salt, pepper, and lemon juice is great. I guess I eat everything :) And SARDINES!

    I probably don't get as much as I should...but Greek yogurt is probably my go-to.
