Ladies, are you getting enough (good, whole) protein?

I get asked all the time how to get enough protein and what enough protein looks like. We need about 30-40% of our daily calories from protein. And, ladies, as we mature we need even more.

A good rule of thumb is to have protein with every meal (minimum 3 meals). Think about 1/3 of your plate being a protein.

And remember, protein doesn't just mean meat. Please get to know the healthy and real food protein sources to add to your diet daily.

30 grams of protein:

1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt

1 cup Tempeh

5 oz Shrimp

1 cup Cottage Cheese

4 oz Chicken

5 oz grass fed steak

1 1/2 cups Tofu

2 cups black beans

5 oz Salmon

5 eggs

More sources of protein:

Bulgur wheat


Nut butters

Canned tuna

Almond milk

Flax seeds

Chia seeds

Pumpkin seeds
