Nuts and greek yogurt worked well for me. Put the nuts in little serving baggies so not to get carried away. Almonds were my fav.

1 oz cheese? I too like the greek yogurt and have one at work almost always. Nuts, a Protein bar-watch the sugars....

Good luck!

Laughing cow cheese wedges don't have a ton of Protein, but are awesome with crackers. Some of the South Beach bars are pretty good and have protein with out a ton of calories. One of the ways that is easy to add protein to your diet and really helpls me is unflavored Unjury. I can add the powder to drinks, casseroles, anything really and it ups my protein without an off taste.

I like weight watchers smoked string cheese. 6g Protein, 50 calories. Cause it is string, I eat it really slow & enjoy every bit.

I was told to avoid nuts because of the far content. But I do love almonds.

Greek yogurt, low fat granola, all natural Peanut Butter or any natural nut butter with whole wheat crackers ( I enjoy the Special K crackers or Reduced fat wheat thins), berries, banana, home made parfait, home made trail mix with dried fruit/nuts/low sodium pretzels/raisins or a combo of your favorite low fat/low cal items. Pita crisp(I love Stacey's brand) with hummus.

Hope this helps a little :)

All of the above plus I like turkey pepperoni and turkey Jerky. The Jerky I buy is Jack Links 100 calorie packs and they have 18 grams Protein. Takes a bit of chewing but they get the job done. Turkey pepperoni is 70 calories with 8 grams Protein. Sometimes I'll have a serving of 15 slices with a string cheese (I like sargento reduced fat cheddar) and that keeps me full.

I also add unflavored Protein Powder to things and/or use lemonade flavored powder in my Water after working out.
