    portable protein

    For the past few weeks I've been using single-serving cans of tuna as a source of protein, particularly for lunch. However, the taste of canned tuna is beginning to seem rather unpalatable, and I'd like a little more variety in my diet. Are there any foods with similar nutritional content that can be easily brought to school w/o refrigeration?

    Nature's Best has some protein bars that are pretty good. Very high in protein as well. Given their consistency, you wouldn't wanna freeze them, unless you have good dental insurance.

    One option with a comperable cost (not to mention a lower mercury content) would be protein supplements. All you need to do is bring a serving of the powder with you--i.e. in a drink container--and then add water when it's time to get your protein on. Easy.

    I often do this because it's such a pain in the ass to worry about getting enough protein in any particular dish. It's easier to get what you need from an alternate source and then just enjoy some pasta, salad, etc. without trying to cram meat or beans into it.

    One note: Don't mix supplements beforehand. From what I understand, the protein breaks down over time this way.

    Beef jerky is great. Although expensive in England. :(
