So I was reading in Fit Pregnancy that pregnant/lactating women are supposed to have around 70g of protein a day!!! Whoa....I definitely don't do that. Non-pregnant/lactating women are supposed to eat 46g, which I probably didn't do either. So I decided to start drinking smoothies in the morning for breakfast, and here is one I concocted that gets in over half of my protein requirement!
1 scoop chocolate Protein Powder
1/2 cup of Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup of Organic Skim Milk
1 T of Peanut Butter
3-4 Ice Cubes
Here's the nutrition information - it may vary depending on the brands you buy. I use Dannon Plain Oikos Greek Yogurt and Six Star Whey Protein Powder.
10.5 Fat (they're good fats :)
I use my new little blender - it's the GE brand, that I actually bought at Wal-Mart for $20 - to blend it.
It turned out super yummy and keeps me full for a long time, AND helps give me the energy to chase a 3 year old and grow a baby :)
