How much protein should you be eating?
Most women are unsure of how much protein they should be eating and even more unfortunate, have no idea how much they're currently eating.
I could give you the standard number of 0.5-1g per lb of body weight but that isn't always the answer. Instead, if you've never tracked your protein and don't know how much you're currently eating, start with aiming for 100 grams a day. This is more than the average woman consumes but is really the bare minimum. Most importantly it's achievable. Setting a goal that's too high might feel unattainable and cause you to give up before you even get started.
If you're striving for 100g that breaks down to roughly 30-35 grams per meal. If you consider a 4 oz cooked chicken breast has roughly 30g of protein then you can base each meal off that example. This is why it was important to us that our pancakes had at least 30g of protein per serving. A stack of 3 pancakes is a reasonable serving size and now you're getting in 33g to start your day. Round that out with chicken for lunch and steak for dinner and you'll be sure to hit your 100+ grams! Stay tuned for another blog about WHY we needing to be eating more protein.

This is the best cocoa ever, just the right sweetness and it has the added protein bonus. Delicious with a slice of double chocolate brownie!
I’ve never like any of those products that contain proteins because they taste like powder. I juste discovered that brand and my oh my IT IS DELICIOUS!! it actually taste chocolate chips cookies! It is sweet enough, tender AND crunchy. A real pleasure to eat.
I’m not a big fan of pancakes, but my husband and 6 year old are so we tried these out. These are so delicious and have the perfect amount of sweetness to them that even I am now wanting to eat them! I love that I can get a good amount of protein for breakfast in with these. When our son tried it, he ate 4 of them in one sitting! Can’t wait to try more of your products!
I always make the supercharged single serving hack when making my pancakes and these, these are beyond delicious! I'm now using them to recover postpartum and they have the perfect amount of chocolate chips and chocolatey goodness in there without being too sweet. These have quickly become my fave pancake mix.
These are sooooo delicious. Definitely will be a repeat purchase!
Love all the possible options with the muffins. Every time is a different kind and never disappoints. Thank you for all the ideas :)
My go to before my workout! I love a sweet breakfast, and this does the trick without all the sugar!
A healthy alternative for a nighttime treat, love it!
I love these! I’m not even the biggest fan of the flavour in general but I made them exactly as suggested and OMG… these are so good I started eating before I was done cooking them lol!
Two of my favourite products. I make the brownie for dessert often when we have friends around for dinner and it is always a winner.
My decadent treat - a mug of hot protein cocoa and a slice of brownie - heaven
Vanilla protein pudding is such a sweet indulgence without the guilt!! It's a fantastic after dinner treat!! I can't get enough!
I've bought the vanilla pudding twice now and I eat it all right away in single servings...one after another...til the package is gone haha. It's so good, the best pudding ever! I prefer it over the chocolate pudding.
I bought this mix a couple weeks back and finally tried it lastnight (note - that was the longest anything HelloAmino has lasted in this household..usually when I buy stuff I eat it all right away haha) I bake banana bread often but this was so much better than any banana bread I've ever had! It smelled amazing when it was baking, I took it out when it was finished and could hardly wait til it was fully cooled to try it. My boyfriend and I absolutely loved it! So soft, tasty, just perfect!!!
The banana bread is so delicious!! Baked it up and had to have a piece once it had cooled a little. My kiddos gobbled this piece as well!! Amazing product!!
Eat them plain, or add some blueberries. Top with yogurt or cottage cheese and chicken sausage, and I have nearly 50g of protein for breakfast! I never ate pancakes before HelloAmino!
The Banana loaf was delicious! And with xtra protein why not!
