- A soy dog cut into chunks and skewered with bits of gherkin and Laughing Cow light (chased down with low-sodium V8!) - I also add protein powder to home-baked cookies (applesauce, no fat)

Protein cake = 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 big tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 2 packets sugar alternative, 1/2 tbsp baking powder, 3 tsp unsweetened applesauce, 1 egg white. Microwave 1 min 25 sec and top with natural PB. Love this and you can change the protein powder flavor and add spices, or use pumpkin or sweet potato instead of the applesauce. Protein pudding = 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tsp natural PB, and enough water (just a few little drops) to mix. Set in fridge for an hour or so. Love to top this with chopped nuts or dried fruit bits. Protein powder is very easy to bake with as well you can make muffins, cookies, breads, bars, pancakes, waffles, and the list goes on and on. I love to use it for my desserts.

1/2 a can of tuna in water with a little mustard mixed in. I spread it on a corn tortilla and eat it like a wrap. It's about 130 calories total; 15 g protein. Yummy!

My snacks are a cup of strawberries with an Activia Light Yogurt and an apple with 2 wedges Laughing Cow Light.

I prefer carrots with PB.

Oh wow, okay I was wrong! I commented before you put the nutrition info. I keep frozen shrimp around, so I'll try that (except maybe on Amaranth crackers and with Fage 0% instead).

I like the WMOONW's shrimp idea, but shrimp, sour cream, hot sauce, and bread sounds a lot more than 150 calories to me. But maybe with greek yogurt instead of hot sauce it would be lower calorie?

Oops! Forgot the protein. 2oz shrimp has 55 calories and 18g protein, 2 Tbsp. sour cream has 30 calories and 1.5g protein, and a slice of wheat bread has around 60 calories, so the snack is 145 calories and 19.5g protein.

My fav protein snacks involve faux meat. 1 cup of Quorn chik'n tenders + some BBQ sauce is about 100 calories and 10g of protein. Or a Morningstar Farms Griller patty (cooked pretty well in a pan) + ketchup is around 140 calories and 15g of protein. No cholesterol and both have 1g of saturated fat or less. I also love nuts. Peanut Butter, celery, and raisins are great (ants on a log). I probably eat all of my protein for the day from sunflower seeds :P

I make a shrimp spread with fat free sour cream, hot sauce and diced cooked shrimp, and I eat it on a slice of whole wheat bread. Yum! You don't need more than a few tablespoons of sour cream, so the spread ends up being mostly shrimp.

Fit, is there a reason you always choose Chobani over Fage? I normally go for Fage 0%, but is the other one better?

I knew that greek yogurt had tons of protein but not 16 grams! I just never feel that satisfied eating it vs. oatmeal or peanut butter.
