Breastfeeding and Protein

http://newstartclub.com/question/1518

Q. As a breastfeeding mother, how much protein should I get?

A.

While nursing your baby, ideally aim to eat 80 gm protein a day. There is protein in almost all veges and fruit, but more in whole-grains, nuts and legumes. For example:

  • 1/2 cup raw tofu (firm): 20 g
  • 1 cup cooked lentils: 18 g
  • 1 cup canned black beans: 15 g
  • 1 cup canned kidney beans: 13 g
  • 1 cup canned garbanzos: 12 g
  • 1 cup canned pinto beans: 12 g
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter: 8 g
  • 1 ounce walnuts: 4 g
  • 1 cup plain soymilk: 6 g
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice: 5 g
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa: 8 g
