    I know that yogurt has great health benefits and all, but it's another food that I cannot eat. Frozen, yes; but, unfrozen, no way.

    Oh man, you have Special K Protein Plus?
    They don't sell that in Canada. I'm thinking it would be a good complement to yogurt in the morning.

    Jerky.

    Turkey Chili. (Trader Joes is good, but loaded with fat but Fresh Directs is awesome).

    octopus and squid both I believe.... high protein and low fat and calories (as long as you don't batter and fry the shit out of it! :))

    for real, wish i had that around.

    for high protein/low cal my go to foods are cottage cheese (12g/100cal), broccoli (3g/25cal), canned tuna and salmon (not sure ratio but very high protein). Also some veggie burgers are very high in protein. Great thread idea!

    Speaking of miracle foods: quinoa has an absurd amount of protein and is essentially a healthy carb substitute.

    This is good stuff. I now have it for breakfast instead of the cereal I used to eat.

    I've always loved Special K. I have some mixed half and half with Cheerios right now... add blueberries, strawberries and almonds and that's breakfast.

    +1 on the quinoa. In the same vein - lentils. You can get some low sodium lentil soups that are delish!

    I add blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and slices of banana to mine. Good early morning eating. Yum.
