lab results showed low prealbumin and after getting guidance from my nutritionist, I've been trying to get at a minimum 100 grams of protein per day. I'll have labs drawn again in about 2 months to recheck these levels (and the other tests that are of concern), so I want to make sure I'm hitting that 100g mark each day to bring my numbers back up where they belong.
Longtime readers of my blog know that I'm a "Stress Non-Eater" -- which means that when I'm under a great amount of stress I tend to forget meals and lose my appetite. Friends on Facebook know that I've been posting about a huge project I'm in the midst of that's got a deadline of Thursday this week - stress much?
So the two paragraphs above don't work well together, right? Which means that in the past week I've gone back to protein shakes because I can't seem to eat enough food each day to bring my protein intake up to 100g. I use my own blog to dig up some recipes long forgotten in the past year that I've gotten away from my daily protein drinks. So if I had to resurrect the recipes for myself, maybe you need a refresher too! Check out these all time favs...
