I apologize if this is a repeat question. However, I could not find the info I was looking. Perhaps someone can direct me to the appropriate link. I would like to incorporate as much variety in my meals as possible and at the same time maintain 120-150gm protein intake daily (150lbs, 5' 8", regular workout and cardio). I want to know if there are other good sources of protein which provide gastronomical satiety? I am getting a bit bored with my intake.

Presently, my diet includes:

PROTEIN

Eggs: Egg whites. I'll cook eggs with the yolk sometimes on weekends.

Beef: Steaks, Beef stew, Beef jerky

Chicken Breast: Grilled, Roasted.

Chicken and Turkey Burgers (lean meat)

Fish: Canned salmon and canned tuna on the rocks

Steamed shrimp.

Protein shakes, Protein Bars.

Tofu

Yogurt

Low Fat Cottage Cheese



CARBS

Multigrain, high fiber bread

Whole wheat pasta

Soy Milk with High Fiber, High Protein Cereal

Energy Bars


I eat a lot of veggies, usually raw in form of salads with low calorie dressings or just steamed.

Juices: Carrot, Orange.


Green tea sometimes. Not too much a fan of Also munch a few walnuts, almonds (5-6 per day).

Beans are good although high in carbs. Go to www.whfoods.com

You can find protein sources at http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tnam ... nt&dbid=92

Get real salad dressing with full fat, preferably olive oil. Or you can make your own with olive or flax oil, vinegar or lemon juice and maybe some herbs, mustard, garlic, onion, etc for flavor.

You need the fats to mobilize the nutrients in the salad and for their own sake. Low calorie dressings are a throw back to the disastrous low fat diet that the world has been on for the last few decades.
