Add cottage cheese to your lunch. Add greek yogurt to your breakfast. Try a snack of string cheese. Add beans and plain greek yogurt to soups.

As others have suggested, try adding some protein powder to your oatmeal. I eat string cheese for snacks and peanut butter is another of my go tos.

1 scoop of Protein Power in vanilla flavor mixed with 6 ounce of orange juice. Shake or put into the blender until smooth.

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.

I think if you go in and edit nutritian goals - you can change calories and I think you can change the range for anything that you are tracking.

Spinach has a lot of protein !

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.

I guess a Whey Protein Powder js the best option. You can make a fast shake, drink it on the go and comes with no fat and almost any carb.

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!

Whey protein powder for delicious smoothies
Greek yogurt
I put nonfat ricotta cheese in my oatmeal, with vanilla extract, banana, cinnamon and a little sweetener. Thick and filling!

I have eggs with cheese for breakfast, make sure I get some protein with lunch (currently a quiche... loving the eggs), and I have meat with dinner. I also avoid junk food and snack on fruit

Add 1 T of Peanut Butter to your Oatmeal; enjoy some cheese; almonds or pecans; open a can of tuna for a quick snack!

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.

11/13/13 10:19 P

Add eggs and or meat to breakfast too. Or make your lunch and dinner portions bigger.

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.

Dairy- cottage cheese (as already mentioned), Greek yogurt (has more protein than reg. yogurt), other low fat cheeses
Whole grains have more protein than refined
Eggs/egg whites
