    protein is a good idea at all meals - and you can always cook in advance :)

    Mate pop in a scoop or two of whey then your getting your protein and whey is possibly one of the cheapest sources of protein, anything you replace it with will probably be as or more expensive......I,ve heard people putting egg whites in their porridge but sounds rank to me.

    To be brutally honest, if you set yourself a goal and its worth achieving then success is determined by what you will do, but also by what you will sacrifice to achieve it.
     
    People go with cottage cheese, quark - but meat, protein powder and egg whites are the kings for a bodybuilder looking for protein - :)

    casein would be ideal to fill you up before bed as it is a slow digesting protein... but is also quite expensive (compared to whey although BBW have it quite cheap atm)
     
    similarly MP have 4.5kg bags for about £45 of flavoured whey even less if you go unflavoured... thats about £10 = 1kg so a scoop or 2 into the porrage at 50g would be 50p for an extra 35g of protien... also i think you can get 5% off your first order if you use someones code

    Agreed casein, cottage cheese, quark etc are great before bed, but although i could be wrong its unlikely the OP will be going to bed at 8pm. Even just a discount brand tin of tuna would be a good, cheap source of protein to keep you going. Also seafood sticks?

    casein is expensive and the op already said he doesnt wanna spend a lot of money
     
    i used to just throw a scoop or 2 of whey in with my porridge, when i ate porridge. dont see the argument about cost op as protein powders are generally cheaper than most protein sources.
     
    how many shakes are you currently having every day?

    Current goals: get back in the game

    I think to be honest you've had some superb suggestions, £ per serving, there's not much cheaper than whey protein if you're unwilling to cook in batches. 
     
    If times are that hard, I'm surprised you can afford the whey to be honest! I know I can't, I stick to whole foods mainly ;)
