9. Pre-cooked chicken sausage
With chicken sausage, you get all the flavor that you love in sausage but with one-third of the unhealthy saturated fats (and only 120–140 calories). Tip: Sauté sliced onions and pepper in olive oil, then mix in a sliced chicken sausage and eat in a whole wheat hot dog bun. It’s quick and easy to prepare, and ensures you have ready access to protein whenever you need it.
One note: Be mindful of the sodium in chicken sausage. Some brands pack several hundred milligrams of sodium per link, which can be an issue for some people—so if you do make dinner out of chicken sausage, keep an eye on your overall sodium intake.
Grams of protein: 15–17g per link
