Add 3 ounces of protein per plate

Choose from skinless rotisserie chicken, precooked shrimp, grilled or poached salmon (or purchased salmon from the prepared food counter), canned or grilled tuna, crabmeat, diced ham, or even roast turkey from the deli counter (but know that these last two are high in sodium).
