    Quinuoa is one of the highest protein foods around. It is an ancient grain (of sorts) and a very healthy low fat food. It is simple to prepare and goes well with many vegetables and sauces and can be substituted for rice in almost any dish. It offers a wonderful nutty, earthy flavor which is perfect with the firm, yet springy texture. It is a remarkable protein that is "the" ultimate animal-free and complete protein!
    Hope this helps~

    Greek yogurt has a good amount of protein and is a tasty low calorie treat.  Also the fat free cottage cheese has a great protein content with low calories.  If your a meat eater like myself you cant go wrong with a nice low sodium jerky.  Or, maybe even a protein shake.

    Almonds, walnuts, peanuts, really most nuts, also beans pintos, lima, etc. sunflower seeds. You can look up recipes online and find some excellent ideas.

    Beans, nuts, fat free yogurt, egg whites are some of the high protein foods that should be low in calories. It also depends
    on how much of each that you eat, as to, how many calories
    you would get.  If you add some nuts to fat free vanilla yogurt, that would be tasty too.
