One of the top questions people ask when they find out I'm vegetarian is how I get enough protein (among other things). It's not really something I worry about or track, but I am conscious of it, and try to eat something high in protein at least once a day. Hannah recently recorded everything she ate to see how she fares, and I'm copying. :) So here for the curious, are a typical day's worth of eats. A woman my age is supposed to get at least 45 grams (as stated here). Do you think I'll get enough?
I used Calorie Count to determine my protein numbers. :)
Dark chocolate almond granola with milk = 12 grams
Salad + 1/4 cup pistachios = 6 grams
Vegetable stir fry = 22 grams
Vegetable wrap with cheese and french fries = 19 grams
2 squares of chocolate + popcorn = 7 grams
Total: 66 grams protein
I'm honestly surprised by how far over the recommended amount I was!
Do you track what you eat?
