Add Protein to Your Diet With This Simple Trick

Silk SoymilkIf you had to make a choice between working out or eating healthy, which one would you choose?

I’d choose eating healthy, because as a busy, working mom, I don’t find the time to work out much.

After a long winter with tons of snow and below-average temperatures, we had the first beautiful, warmer day here on Tuesday — perfect for a walk around the neighborhood.

Instead of putting on my sneakers after I got home from running errands, I quickly needed to turn around and drop something off for Landon at school, had to rush back home and work to make a deadline, get back into the car to pick up L from school…

Sound familiar?

Maybe I’d work out more if I had a treadmill in the house, with a TV in front of it. But I wouldn’t know where to put that in our little cottage.

So I try my best to at least eat very healthy, because I can accomplish that with more ease.

I don’t buy junk food, eat my vegetables, and try to balance and switch up what I eat to hopefully get all the nutrients my body needs.

Getting enough protein into my diet is a struggle, since I like my carbs and am a vegetarian. I definitely should eat more protein.

My easy — and delicious — trick to add more protein is to drink a glass of soymilk for breakfast.

Do you want to get more protein into your diet?

You can always sneak in a glass of soymilk in the morning or during the day.

Add Protein to Your Diet

Silk original soymilk

I buy non-GMO Silk® Original Soymilk because no other dairy-free milk brand gives you more protein. It packs in 8 grams of heart-healthy protein per serving. Silk is plant-based, naturally low in saturated fat, and has no cholesterol.

Silk wants to change the world, one sip (or spoonful) at a time. They don’t use high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, plus Silk soymilk is gluten, lactose, egg, casein, and MSG free.

Don’t like to drink straight milk? Simply add Silk soymilk or their other milks to a smoothie, your latte, or cook with it!


Switching to Silk is an easy way to start adding more plants to your diet and to give your body everything it needs.
