Do you have trouble getting protein into your diet? When I first started tracking I quickly realized I very little protein in my diet. Even if you eat meat itโ€™s challenging to get protein in. Here are some quick tips to add a little protein to your daily intake:
1) Carb Choice: Carbohydrate choices such as pasta and certain breads can have much more protein than just filling up on fruits, vegetables, and rice. Legumes have even more protein! Adding lentils and beans to your diet will help you take in more protein and fiber and they also include a diverse micronutrient profile.
2) Eat More: Don't be afraid of eating a little bit more. Don't be afraid of adding an egg white omelette on top of what you're eating. If you eat meat, don't be afraid of adding a little bit of extra chicken to your food.

3) Supplement: If you're still having trouble hitting your food goals add in a protein smoothie as an extra meal. My go to right now is @bodybuildingcom Signature Chocolate with frozen cherries. It tastes like black forest cake and blends really well in baked goods.

4)Post any tips that have worked well for you below ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ

    @fresafuerte I like the #plantfusion brand. Plain flavor. I add oats and chia seeds (or almond butter or coconut oil) on top of the fruits and veggies to make it more satisfying. - 4 months ago

    Chia seeds are a great vegetarian or vegan protein choice. They are high in fat so it will depend on your macros but ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ - 4 months ago

    As a vegan I get the most protein through lentils, beans, edemame, plant based meat replacers, nuts, seeds and protein powder. I eat more calories to get more protein. It works for me ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒฑ - 4 months ago
