10 Delicious High Protein, Low Calorie Foods

Anyone who keeps a food journal knows that it can sometimes be challenging to find foods that are nourishing, delicious, and calorie-wise. Getting enough protein is particularly important during weight loss. It helps us feel fuller and protects muscle tissue.
