Best Protein Per Dollar?

I just read this article and thought it was a little silly to compare the best protein per dollar.  I know some guys how low budgets so this is good to see, but I always like to rotate my protein sources.  There’s many reasons for 6703791951 0f8e77efdc m Best Protein Per Dollar?

They’re two of the best low-calorie, low-fat, high-protein options out there, but which one gives you the most bang for your buck? While it seems that chicken breast is the clear-cut winner with twice the protein for only 70 cents more, delving a little deeper reveals some interesting results. With each egg costing 25 cents in a pack of a dozen, you pay approximately two cents per gram of protein. On the other hand, for a four-ounce serving of chicken, you pay an average of 92.5 cents. That equates to a price of approximately 3.4 cents per gram of protein. The argument for eggs gets even better. They’re also packed with antioxidants that keep your eyes healthy, as well as choline, which keeps your brain in top shape. If you’re training on a budget, go with eggs. Two servings will cost you a sixth of a cent more per gram of protein than one serving of chicken, and you’ll have two more servings than a four-pack of chicken breasts


So clearly they are saying you get more bang for your buck with an egg.  Which is your favorite protein source to help build muscle?
