Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

low protein:( What are some tasty substitutions for meat?

2 answers
I had some lab work done recently and it was showing that my protein level was low. I know that getting protein while preganant is a must for healthy brain developement for the baby. I usually LOVE meat, any kind, however, since I've been pregnant I don't really care for it. I like beans ok, but does anyone have any suggestions that are tasty and have a lot of protein per serving?

Thank you so much! Maybe the ensure option would be a good one, I could drink it in the morning with breakfast or something:) No peanut butter unfortunately, because no matter how much I like it, the baby doesn't seem to lol!:)
