Hope everyone is cooling off! Can we talk about protein? I usually eat chicken, beef, pork...but nothing is appealing. I don't think peanut butter toast is really going to be sufficient in the long term. Any suggestions for proteins that will sit well? Bonus for easy to prepare meals that keep well for leftovers... Dinner is not a big meal for me lately.
Ps. I don't eat eggs or seafood
I agree with the Greek yogurt suggestion and would try making a smoothie with yogurt everyday because you can add so much good stuff to them: spinach, kale, avocado, peanut or almond butter, plus fruit. You can even add a scoop of protein powder if you're really worried about how much you're getting. So good!
Also, other dairy such as cheese or milk. Tofu, bean, and other legume (like lentils) dishes. And whole grain products usually have quite a bit of protein as well. I don't know how bio-available that protein is compared to meat, but whole grain pastas usually have a surprising amount of protein listed in the nutrition bit.
I loooooove this lentil soup: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/lentil-sausage-soup-recipe/index.html I've left out the sausage before and it's still really, really good. It makes a ton and it keeps well. It's one of my go-to meals for new parents.
Bean chili is so easy and you could add soy crumbles or try browning meat and see if you can trick yourself into eating it!
Just browsing through my vegetarian cookbooks, the highest protein meals are the ones that include cheese! But with just beans, it looks like you can get up to close to 20 g of protein per serving as well.
