What Sources Of Protein Are your Taste (Texture) Favorites?

Which sources of proteins do you prefer, not eating necessarily for better nutrition?

 

I could easily eat some type of beef, steak, roast, chili, spaghetti, stew, toco salad, you name it.  I do eat other types of protein for health, (LOVE a good, fresh shrimp coctail) but if I had a choice......no way!!!

Fish, chicken, turkey and beans.  Oh and pork.

Beans & lentils.  I cook with many different spices so I think it's probably the spices I associate with the yumminess of the beans & lentils.  

 

@ECBG  I used to love, love, love shrimp....then one time it landed me in the ER in anaphylaxis.  So please enjoy some for me!  Smiley Happy  Happy Eating.

Fish and poultry.  Lots of protein, and usually lower in fat than beef or pork. 

 

I do have red meat about once a week.

Tuna, chicken, beef, and beans.

 

I love bacon....but I know it has no redeeming qualities other than the "yummy" factor!...so I don't buy it!

I eat a lot of chicken. My friend jokingly said she's waiting for me to start clucking.

No longer eat my favorite, steak and hamburger.  

 

I only eat chicken and turkey white meat, eggs, and yogurt, now.

@alicedee    think of bacon as garnish, or a condiment.

It adds calories, aroma, color, texture, and certainly adds flavour, but no nutritional benefit.

So use it, but sparingly.

Egg whites, poached salmon or cod, buttermilk & greek yogurt, turkey, legumes, solid white albacore, cheeses.

An occasional pork tenderloin or jar of pickled herring.

Never a fan of beef.

Can't afford a decent lamb chop anymore.
