6. Part skim ricotta cheese
The versatile texture, neutral flavor, and beefed-up calcium count (over a third of your daily needs) of ricotta cheese turn this “stuffed shells staple” into a fridge regular. A lot of people don’t think of this as a common protein source, and it pairs well with other non-protein sources with the ease of not having to cook something like meat, poultry or fish. Consider spreading on whole-grain frozen waffles and top with fruit and cinnamon for a filling breakfast in under 5 minutes.
