As a grad student I’m essentially broke. I’m 5 10 185 and I’m trying to add more protein into my diet. I currently am averaging 3,344 calories per day, and 202 grams of protein for the last month and a half. I’d like to up that by about 50 grams per day, but can’t think of any cheap way to do it.
I can’t stomach any more ground turkey than what I’m already eating. Plus I can’t really afford to be buying more steak or pork than I do currently as my budget is stretched virtually to the max. So what are some cheap ways to add about 50 grams of protein per day?
Actually crunching the numbers, if I added two protein shakes per day it would only cost me one dollar per day extra if I used water in the shakes…that’s not too bad.
