Quick Tips For High Protein, Healthy Meals — Easy Meal Inspiration

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

The Meal: A serving of grilled salmon (portion size should be the size of your fist), with a small side salad of spinach, arugula and strawberries.

Why It’s Good: Salmon is high in protein (keeps you fuller for longer), high in Omega-3’s, and can easily taste good with a squirt of lemon (and little else). Make your salad even higher in protein by adding a sprinkling of almonds or walnuts (or additional fruit, like mandarin oranges).

Make It Fast:

* If You’re Gluten-Free: Try Organic Bistro’s new salmon, broccoli and rice pilaf combo (it heats up in seconds, but does the portion control and calorie counting for you).

*If You Crave Flavor: The Lemon Pepper Fish meal from Healthy Choice is quick, simple, and creates the illusion of eating breaded fish (with only 310 calories!)

* If You’re a Vegetarian: Although they are yet to invent a meat replacement for fish (that we know of… or want to know of?), but try having an Italian Herb Chik Pattie from Morningstar Farms instead (it’ll go great with salad!)
