I'm having that problem too. Trying to throw in more beans, but I find that some vegetarian meat substitutes (Morningstar, Boca, etc) as a snack can help. A couple of fake chicken tenders on a salad help to get enough protein in the diet.
The best way to get more protein is to eat more protein. That means meat, fish, fowl, and eggs if you want lots of protein. many of the foods listed have a little protein, but the best way to get protein is from sources high in protein.
You can eat red meat, which has more fat, or chicken, which is less fat, and still lots of protein, or eat very low fat white fish, if fat is an issue ( calories too ). All 3 have about 20 grams of protein for each serving. Tilapia, cod, and pollock have around 1 gram of fat, and 19 grams of protein per 4 ozs, and just 90 calories.
If that doesn't help, Google high protein foods, and see what sounds good to you.
Thank you I was wondering the same thing about the protein, and making it public. I was still wondering if some one , (who is not going to judge me to much, lol) could look at my tracker and help me with that. Would eating beans help? just wondering.

I add a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder to my oatmeal - yum! Just make sure to cook the oatmeal with extra water/milk so it can absorb the protein.

I make sure to have turkey sausages in the fridge always. 4 links come in at 90 calories with 10 grams of protein. Best of all they are ready in 30 seconds.
SMILILY - I usually cook rice in extra water, about twice as much as recommended for the recommended cooking time. Then check it, taste it to see if it's done to your liking. When it tastes perfect for you. Drain the extra water off using a strainer and put the rice back into the pot. No more soggy rice!

Hi does anyone have suggestions or a recipe for Brown Rice; I have eliminated the white rice, flour and bread. But when I make the brown rice, it is just not very good. What ingredients should I add to make it more tasty. If I have to eat it; I would at least like to enjoy it a bit. Thanks.
It would also help if you made your nutrition tracker public. Not only will you need to add in a few more ounces of protein, or higher protein foods; these will have to substitute for other foods that are bringing about too many calories for the day. You will have to make a switch. Perhaps (for example) you need to cut back on the 2 ounces of tortilla chips and use an extra ounce of meat at lunch. Since we can't see your nutrition tracker; we can't give you more specifics. Let me know if you need the steps to make your tracker public. Becky Your SP Registered Dietitian
