I was never a huge meat eater… and it wasn’t really on purpose. I just tended to eat more carbs (even healthy ones) but I realized how important protein really was for my health and weight loss goals.
When I was pregnant, my midwife told me that I needed even more protein in my diet to help my baby grow. That’s when I started looking for ways to add protein into my diet without eating more meat.
What my video to learn how I added more protein into my diet without eating more meat:
Non Meat Protein Sources:
- Greek Yogurt
- Cottage Cheese
- Peanut Butter
- Chia Seeds
- Hemp Seeds
- Ezekiel Bread
When I was pregnant, I dealt with so many food aversions and almost ALL Meat was off the list… that’s when I really learned about using protein powders and how they can supplement your protein intake.
Now, my whole family loves drinking smoothies and making snacks using protein powder to keep us full longer and avoid the sugar crashes.
What is your favorite way to add protein into your diet?
