Coming onto MDC helps me be aware of protein because of the vitamin ad :p I still am not getting enough I don't think. I have a two egg sandwich everyday. pb&j or cheese with lunch and meat at dinner. I always have a huge tub of greek yogurt in the fridge, I love it on top of my husband's weekly batch of apple crumble Otherwise, I totally forget it's there. Today I made a batch of boiled eggs. Most days I don't snack, when is a good time to work in a snack?
What's your protein punch?
I don't think I have been getting enough protein but I have been consciously trying to get more and more each day. I had a major smell aversion to cooking meat so when my DH is gone half the week if I can't reheat something quickly I'm not really cooking meat. I start the day with at least 2 eggs. I've been craving peanut butter (I can eat it by the spoonful!) and snacking on salami or ham like a kid :-) other than that I have enjoyed beans and cheese and meat in things I'm not cooking :-)
I have really upped my protein since they started worrying me that baby girl might be small. I still am probably not getting enough to be Brewer-worthy, but I do my best. I eat 2 or 3 eggs for breakfast every morning and I snack on hard boiled eggs about 1/2 of the days. I eat string cheese for a snack 1-2x per day. I try to eat a big bowl of cottage cheese with fruit most days at lunch time. I also snack on nuts (peanuts & almonds mostly). I force myself to eat meat with dinner even though it still doesn't appeal to me… Lunches I try to have beans or a soup with beans, or veggie quiche (lots of eggs - I love eggs!).
I had a followup ultrasound this week and they still are saying baby girl is "on the small side" but they think everything is A-okay and I don't need to go back. I will be laughing my butt off when she's a 10 pounder (or maybe crying…) :)
