I'm doing the same kind of thing, big work outs, and getting in good protein as a big part of my diet, and my favorite thing to have for protein, is nuts! I got a bunch from bulk foods, and have them stored in bags that are 1/4 cup of nuts... cashews, pecans, almonds, and de-shelled sunflower seeds. Thats about 200 calories per bag. They're really good for you, lots of protein, and really tasty. I find them just great.

I thought the same thing for a long time, about how much fat is in nuts and how bad that can be, until I found out an interesting fact. The protein and fat in nuts is really complex, so it takes our bodies far more work to digest them. I read that about 40% of the calories in nuts is burned, just from all the work it takes to digest. So, you have good fats, that the body needs in the first place, and all the bad parts are burned off, raising your metabolism. They are just a great place to be getting your proteins.

I used to make sure I had snacks with me when I went to the gym too. One of my favorites is to have a banana and some almonds. But sometimes I have my own little mix of dried fruit and nuts. I really like to mix my own nuts. That way I buy them in the baking section so there isn't salt added. Walnuts, pecans, and almonds mix real well with raisins (no sugar added). It's a real healthy mix I used to carry with me a lot.

Hi Egg protein is perhaps the best available protein. Then all red meat, organ meat, white meat, seafood are all good sources of protein. For vegetarians milk, yogurt, cheese, Soy beans are good sources of proteins. But excess protein is also not good as it can overload your kidneys. Try for about 1.5 gm of protein per Kg of your body weight.

What about eggs. Or you can choose bean or soy bean, fry it. Anyway, fish or chicken is a fastest way to earn protein (the process in our stomach is short).

When I'm trying to eat extra protein, some of the snacks I enjoy are hard boiled eggs, celery with PB, Beef or Turkey Jerky, etc.
