I can relate. I'm way over on carbs (seems like breads/grains and fruit) and under on protein and fat. I've just been too lazy to get some beans soaking. I need to set aside one day a week for meal planning, shopping, and batch cooking for the week. It gets out of hand trying to do it day by day with what I've got at the house!

the spark has the protein too high and I think one of the site will tell you how to figure it out . Just remember that there is protein in all fruits, veggies, beans, ect.

If you like greek yogurt:

Greek yogurt, with sliced bananas, then more yogurt on top, sprinkled with walnuts (or w/e kind of nut you like)!

Had this for breakfast this morning; 20g of protein!! :)

Hi Jen,
I struggle with getting enough too. Here are a few things that are staples for me, with approx protein off the top of my head- may be a little off)
Quinoa - Cup 8 grams
Couscous - Cup 6 grams
Chia seeds - Tbsp 3 grams
I usually buy them at Costco because I can get a pile of them for cheap. Also found a great deal on some dried mixed beans there and we figured out that it was the cheapest per gram of protein of anything we were buying. Of course they are dried so it takes a little longer to prepare, but we make a batch of them and mix them in during the week. I like the chia seeds because it is easy to sprinkle all over the place. I am highly allergic to flaxseeds so that was out of the question.

Hey everyone,
So I've been tracking my foods for a little over a week and noticed that I am always Protein deficient. I have been trying to incorporate more tofu and nuts, and things like that, but I can't seem to get enough protein. Do you guys know of any high protien foods, that are cheap and easy to make, but that are not very fatty. I am trying to lose weight.
Thanks!
Jen
