this pregnancy, i’m trying to average between 80-100 grams of protein a day. once you start counting protein it’s like “whoa, i’m going to have to eat a lot of food today to get my protein requirements AND all the other good things into my body.” especially if you don’t eat meat everyday like myself. i use cottage cheese as my secret weapon. the brands i get have 14-15 grams of protein in a half cup serving. i usually top it with a fresh or frozen fruit for a lovely little breakfast item or a snack. this works for me because i’m the only cottage cheese lover in my house. all the cottage cheese is mine!
what were your non-meat protein secrets during pregnancy?

Whoah, kudos to you! It’s hard to track the protein part, in my opinion. Cottage cheese does pack a punch, I forgot about that… also yogurt and beans. These fruit bowls look AWESOME. Thanks for the inspiration!
Thanks and welcome to this space! I’ve found if i start out doing well with protein during breakfast, the rest of the day falls into place :)
