I'm trying to lose a few pounds and restricting myself to 1500 calories a day (not an easy thing). I'm trying to eat a good amount of protein in my diet b/c I'm weight training but am starting to get a little bored w/egg whites. (BTW, not doing the low carb thing). Is there another high protein/low fat option that is versatile and tasty? I've been eating egg whites as both a meal (egg white omelet) or as a snack (hard boiled eggs minus the yolk).
Peanut butter--higher in protein but also high in fat and calories so I really restrict my intake of this. Besides, I'm not a huge fan of it. Like it but don't LOVE it like a lot of folks.
Edamame-love this stuff and eat my weight in it but isn't really a high protein option.
Tofu--love tofu in most all forms but a) isn't really all that high in protein and b) can't see myself snacking on it.
Nuts-have an okay amount of protein but is also high in calories.
Does anyone else feel my (hunger) pains?
Thanks in advance!
