We we're on baby #3 and I have felt very strongly this time around to count protein grams. With my other pregnancies I bought into the "Americans eat too much protein anyway" theory. Well, turns out my average diet (low in dairy and small meat portions if any) is VERY low in protein (30g on average - should be 75-80!). High in fruits and veggies, but that doesn't help the protein thing. Do any of you have some good recipes that helped you meet your quota that aren't LOADED with calories/fat? (like peanut butter. A serving is 1 TBS which has 7g protein but has half the fat you need for a whole day! yikes) Or doesn't include eating a whole chicken ;o) I have, for the time, started drinking milk again (9g protein 100 cal per cup) and am just hoping my system doesn't rebel too badly! I just feel like on my hypnobabies protein counter the servings are so large - eg: 1 cup cottage cheese = 30g protein. Awesome! But a CUP? That is a lot of cottage cheese. 1/2 cup a day is about all I can handle. Anyway, you get the idea. Any tips? Tricks? Recipe ideas? Thanks!
