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 it’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.
