  1. Any more protein options for non-meat eaters? I have added tuna and tilapia recently to up the protein. I also bought a protein shake from costco but dont know if it too high in sugars , etc (any guideliness to choose the best inexpensive protein shake ?) I’ve read about nuts but they are calorie dense and i just rather avoid it. I am also wondering how i will have a 9am – 5pm day school day without healthy options available (perhaps bringing my own salads in tupperware?). Also what about coffee? … I am studying for USMLE step 1.
