WIAW - the protein edition

Happy What I Ate Wednesday! I'm given a new habit every two weeks from my Precision Nutrition program. This week: add a lean protein to every meal. So that was my focus today.

Breakfast: my lovely smoothie. There are two scoops of protein powder in there.

Snack: I know it is processed, but I also knew lunch would be late. And I haven't figured out a non-nut (because DUDE, I'm tired of nuts) protein source that I can carry around in my purse without an ice pack.

This bowl is actually much smaller than it looks. Polynesian Tofu bowl. Next time, I'll ask for more peas because they were so good.

No protein in the pretzel after Run Club. This is the part that I didn't eat.

Dinner was disappointing. I spent a lot of time and energy to learn that I don't like seitan. At least not in barbecue sauce.The consistency reminded me of fatty meat, which I hate. Super glad I had extra sweet potatoes. So protein attempt, but protein fail.

Any suggestions for packable, non-perishable lean proteins for snacks-on-the-go?
