You and I have similar fitness demands. I rely on protein smoothies.

I use a clean protein drink. Drop a note, if you're interested. I totally get the need for more protein.

I like chunks of cold chicken breast dipped in Frank's Red Hot as a post workout snack - sometimes I add a string cheese

I rely on ff milk to get me over the top on protein. I drink a cup after every meal and sometimes another in the afternoon as a pick me up.

What equation are you using to determine your protein needs?
What is your SP protein range?
From what you share, I would estimate that if you are getting at least 60 grams of protein daily, you are meeting need.

Will you share more specifics---then we can give better tips and suggestions?

Shakeology has 17 grams of protein per serving, if you add almond milk and powdered peanut butter you can get 23 grams of protein for just under 200 calories.

I went to have a peak at your Nutrition Tracker to see what your nutrition is like and where the tweaks could be made if they need to be made, but unfortunately you don't share it. If you open it you will get more specific help.

What ranges does SP set for you, based on your current weight, exercise, etc.? They give a very generous range that is easy to work in. IF you need more protein, think:
eggs, particularly the white
lean red meat
chicken
fish
chick peas
lentils
beans
Nuts / Seeds / Grains
Soy
Cheese
Yoghurt
Milk (Including most alternatives)

Hi! I'm a 45-yr-old female. In this past year I've discovered fitness, nutrition, and how to accomplish my goals. I am feeling wonderful!!! The problem is I am not meeting my protein according to the "equation". On top of that, I workout pretty hard, especially for a 45-yr-old woman. I burn an avg. of 1,000 calories in cardio before I switch over to my strength routine. This is 4x/week minimum - more when I can. Or I will sneak in a walk in the park and some free weights at home on off-days. I've lost 62 pounds so far. At 187 today, I have about 45 - 50 more to go.

That is the basis on what I think I should be basing my nutritional needs on, especially protein. Any idea how much someone with the above criteria should be getting? I don't want to lose precious muscle mass at this stage of the game. Thanks so much!
