Try almond butter instead of peanut butter. Both have the same amount of protein per two tablespoons which is approximately 7 grams. But almond butter is better as it also packs 7 times more calcium, 50% more magnesium, and a higher level of monounsaturated fats that can lower your LDL cholesterol levels.

Cottage cheese helps lose weight. Half a cup = 12 g of protein, and a source of leucine, an amino acid which is a building block for muscles. Choose a low-fat, no-sodium-added version. Pair with fruit/add to smoothie/ oatmeal. Enjoy.
