Mussels are cheap and you can dress them up
You can buy mussels in their shells. When I extracted out the flesh from this lot there were 200g. On this plate there are probably 130 gm which means it has about 35 gm protein.
I tarted them up by cooking up onions and garlic, then adding mussels and chopped cress. We had some new potatoes from the garden, very small but very tasty. No protein in that!
It would be no good an older man just filling up on potatoes as they need about 70 gm protein a day, depending on their weight and their body mass without fat.
