Like some of the other Sparkers, I use a protein powder to boost my protein when I'm low. There are several good brands; look for one very low in carbs and fat. Of course it's nice to be able to use it in a fruit-yogurt smoothie (I use frozen fruit so the blender churns it up thick and creamy), but you can stir the powder into any liquid.
I also eat low or nonfat dairy for protein, but watch out for the carbs and sodium content. Low fat cottage cheese is my go-to dairy protein food. I like the taste much better than nonfat, and it's low in fat and carbs. Plus, you can eat cottage cheese with either sweet (for example, fruit) or savory (for example, toast) depending on your mood.
Keep on tracking, no matter what, through ups and downs - it will make ALL the difference in your long term goals! Happy Sparking ~
