    I miss real skyr so much and I only got to eat it for less than a week.

    Sure Siggi's and Icelandic are good and Fage and Chobani Complete are good but true Icelandic skyr was devine.

    What kind of foods do you like?

    We make protein cheesecake, protein pancakes, protein pudding, protein bars and a number of meat/seafood based dishes that have a ratio of about 1g protein to 10 calories.

    You can also use silken tofu anywhere you'd use yogurt for a non-dairy protein.

    I make salad dressings and simmer sauces for veggies with silken tofu all the time

    I'm not always sure what people mean when they say simple, but here's a good one I made this week (tripled for my family, subbed in a can of diced tomato and skipped the olives):

    I've been eating the leftovers for lunches.

    Grilled/broiled chicken breast with vegetables is also very good and filling, and tastes good as cold leftovers also. You can do it on skewers or on a sheet pan.

    There are few whey protein isolate pancake recopies out there that aren't to bad.

    Thank you! Maybe I should stay away from the pizza and eat more chicken haha

    Pizza is still a real good option for a high protein low calorie supper.... To increase the Protein you could just drop the bacon and add some chicken breast?

    This is my Pizza tonight. (We make this on a full sheet of Josephs Lavash bread which is 2 listed servings. (the macro's below is for 1 quarter of the pizza.)

    I always make high-protein seafood pasta. Just substitute the pasta with the tofu noodles. Protein powder pancake is also a good choice, and it tastes like a real pancake! All of them are easy to make:)

    I've started eating a lot more cottage cheese to increase my protein.
    Recently I've been adding some kimchi on top to give it some snap.

    I grill a lot...chicken, fish, burgers, steak, pork chops, pork tenderloin, etc. Doesn't get a whole lot easier than seasoning or marinating some meat, poultry, or fish and throwing it on the grill.

    That’s very true! I need to use my grill more often, thank you!

    My favorite, scrambled eggs and bacon.
    Buy 18 eggs and scramble them, along with a 1lb pack of bacon. To prep the bacon, set oven to 350, 10 minutes on one side, flip, 10 mins on the other. Makes a few days leftovers.

    Lentil Stew
    Ingredients
    Butter
    Yellow Onion
    1.5 tsp salt
    10oz can tomato paste
    1.5 tbsp garlic powder
    1.5 tbsp cumin
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    3 quarts chicken or vegetable broth
    3 cups red lentils
    6 stems of celery
    Full fat yogurt
    Pita chips or cheezits
    Instructions
    Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, salt, and tomato paste. Cook, stirring often, until the onion softens and the tomato paste turns a deep brick red or brown color, 5 to 7 minutes.
    Add garlic, cumin, and cayenne; cook, stirring, for 2 more minutes. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, add the lentils and celery.
    Stir and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils and vegetables are very tender, 40 minutes.
    Serve by scooping a bowl of lentil, and add some yogurt and pita chips or cheezits.

    WHEN THE CHICKEN IS DONE BOILING, TAKE OUT OF WATER. YOU’LL KNOW IT’S DONE WHEN IT CAN BE EASILY SHREDDED WITH A FORK AND KNIFE. SHRED CHICKEN INTO SMALLER PIECES. ADD CHICKEN TO EVERYTHING ELSE AND MIX UP.
    SPRAY DISH WITH PAM FIRST. SPREAD ALL INGREDIENTS INTO A 11x13 BAKING DISH. THEN SPREAD 1 CUP OF CHEESE OVER TOP.
