I like making a fruit smoothie. I put in my blender one 6 oz. container of greek yogurt (my favorite is chobani, but any kind will work), then a cup of any frozen fruit that you like (get the unsweetened kind), lastly put in about a 8 oz of your choice of juice (orange and apple are great choices but any will work). The greek yogurt is awesome for protein and the drink is a great way to get in your daily intake of fruit. If you want you can even sneak in a handful of spinach and that will also up your health levels :)

I started with 2 extra large eggs this morning, and then had chicken and black beans in my lunch and dinner choices. I actually ended up going OVER in my protein (personally, my body works better going over in the protein category vs. the carbs category, if I have to be over in either).

So I went back and checked my tracker. Almost all the food I ate had a least a little protein. My 80 gr were made up mostly from London broil, turkey (in soup), Greek yogurt, cream cheese and milk.

Yesterday I got 62 grams of protein from my Baked Chicken stuffed with Pesto and Cheese. It's one of my favorite things to eat. It's 492 calories but I think it's a great bang for my buck and is super duper filling. It's a large piece of chicken breast (8oz) stuffed with 1 tbsp each of pesto, sour cream, and shredded mozzarella cheese, so all items that have good protein in them. Also, I didn't track it, but I also had a large slice of cheese pizza for lunch (sadly one of the healthiest things on the menu where I ate with my boss) which probably had a decent amount of protein too because of the cheese.

Today I will be getting it from leftover ground beef enchiladas for lunch, which aren't super good on the calorie range at 618 (I'm in maintenance so I can eat more), but it's 46 grams of protein for 2 of them, and I will probably be super full after eating them. My dinner is a baked penne with chicken sausage. I get protein from the whole grain pasta, the cheese, and the chicken sausage, and it's 31 grams of protein for 494 calories.

I also have a cheese stick and yogurt every day for a snack, together those are 14 grams of protein but only 170 calories.

So, most days, the bulk of my protein comes from larger portions of meat, and then supplemented with dairy. If I find I'm short for the day and I'm OK on sodium, I'll have 1oz of beef jerky which is 10 grams of protein for only 90 calories... one of the best bangs for your "calorie" buck.

I seem to be having trouble fitting in my protein, so how did you get yours today?
