I love a snack of 1/2 cup cottage cheese and 2 Tbls of Pace Picante sauce. It's only 100 calories and 7 carbs. Very filling and it's 13 g. of protein.

I have been paying more attention to protein in the last couple of weeks, sometimes it is low because protein is mostly higher calorie. I have Incorporated some snacks like sardines, beef jerky, nuts and cheese for added protein. I think I will they the muffins too, not much into smoothies, I would rather eat my food then drink it up all mushy.
