I have done extensive research – theoretical and practical – to determine the most bang-for-your-buck sources of protein.
- Canned tuna in water
- Canned pilchards
- Chicken breast
- Cottage cheese
- Tuna fish cakes with pilchards
- Ostrich mince
- Meatballs (ostrich/venison/beef/pork mince)
- Homemade chicken bites
What the SO and I do every two weeks or so is prepare a batch of these protein sources and freeze it in portions for easy extraction during the week. Examples include
All of the above are combined with ground chickpeas (to make it go further and to add some carbs), ground biltong powder and various spices/chillies/fresh herbs so we don’t feel like running to Mcds for a disgusting, filthy, addictive cheeseburger.
I still have to order some bulk whey protein isolate, which will be added to the afternoon smoothie. Currently we are finishing up some flavoured protein we bought on daily deal.
