I struggled with it when I first started as well. Now I just build my meals around a source of protein and add more through out the day as needed. I add nuts to my oatmeal, add beans or nuts to my salad, and keep bags or raw almonds in my desk at work for snacks.
I've found without question that the best way to lead others to a more plant-based diet is by example - to lead with your fork, not your mouth. ~Bernie Wilke

Hi there! It's my second day on SP, and I'm still trying to navigate. This team sounds right up my alley! I used to be a vegetarian, and then introduced meat back into my diet several years back. I still don't eat meat very often (maybe once or twice/week). I find one of the hardest things (at least with two days of meal tracking so far) is that I am not even meeting my minimum protein intake for the day. Does anyone else struggle with this? Nice to meet you all!
