Other than a protein shake, i'm looking for some solid good recipes to make for lunch and dinner.

Low Carbs
Low Fat
High in Protein
Low on Budget
Quick to make

Does such recipes exist? Any input or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Cheap is a relative term. Most of what he put above is cheap for a lot of us. Take the list, go to the store, see what you can afford.

Preparation is done to taste. Or you can look through the hundreds of threads already in the recipe forum and see what works for you.

Basically your just asking for protein sources.

Now if you told us what you consider low carb/low fat then maybe we can get some other ideas. For example any meat with veggies is low carb and high protein. Stirfries, soups, etc. How you season and how much veggies you use will effect the carbs/fat.

Some of my high protein goto recipes
Omeletes (eggs, egg whites, veggies, meat). I made a shrimp and mushroom one this weekend.
Stirfry (chicken, mixed veggies). Season with garlic, soy, ginger, etc.
Grilled whatever. Grill stuff. Meat+veggies. This weekend I had chicken with grilled mushrooms and asparagas.

As for cheap, a cheap meal to me is $25. Expensive starts around $50.

Was just pointing out that cheap is all relative. To one person cheap is $3-4. To another person $10 is cheap. My tech at works makes about a 1/3 of what I do and has 3 kids to feed. He thinks I'm crazy when I spend $100 on a dinner so I was just pointing out he needs to define cheap.

Two cans of tuna
2 tbsp miracle whip light
1 tbsp dijon mustard
Onions, carrots, and celery to taste.

40-60g of protein, 3-5 g of carbs. 300 calories.

Buy lean hamburger meat in bulk. (5 pounds or so)
Cook it well, no need to season it.
Put it in a colander (pot with holes in it) and wash it VERY well with HOT water. It's amazing how much grease you can wash out of it.

Divide it up into ziplock bags and put them in the freezer.
You can thaw one out in a microwave, or under running water and use it in any recipe you want.

Season it just before you use it, or season it before you freeze it.

You can make chili (add dark red kidney beans for extra protein).
or

Wrap some up in a "carb-smart" tortilla, add some shredded lettuce, low-fat cheese, sourcream, beans, tomatos, onions, anything like that. Roll it up in a damp papertowel and pop it in a microwave about 30 seconds and you have a hot meal.

I heartily recommend these. The one's I use have about 11g of fiber per tortilla. That's a hell of a lot.

Don't know about having this for dinner but I include it in my lunch and after dinner as a dessert or for a really quick snack if I feel like something sweet. I throw in about 100g of thawed out raspberries (I buy 500g boxes from the supermarket freezer), some low fat cottage cheese and some 'fake' sugar to sweeten it slightly. A yummy low-fat, low-carb, high-protein snack! The 100g of raspberries also has a bit over 4g of fibre too.

Are you talking a meal out? I don't think my lunch ever costs more than $5 to make. I spend about $60 on groceries and then add in protein powder (maybe another $25 a week).

OP why just protein? On a zero carb and fat diet?
