eating enough protein

My dr told me she wanted me to eat a good amount of protein in my diet not to have to many carbs but lots of veggies, fruit, nuts and proteins. Well here is my problem, iI have had morning sickness for 10 weeks now and have lost weight and the though of meat or chicken just turns my stomach, any green leaft veggies give me the worst gas and I am lactose intolerant,I can only eat so may eggs.I have been eating oatmeal regularly and kashi cereal with the extra protein any ideas as to what is good to eat. The dr said she wanted me to gain between 25 to 40 pounds, it feels impossible to do so. Any advice, my system also is a but sensitive to wheat products.

Re: eating enough protein

Try carnation instant breakfast. Since you are lactose intolerant, mixing it with reg milk is out, but can you drink another type of milk like soy?

Re: eating enough protein

I also need extra protein because I don't eat meat, peanut butter sandwiches are a great substitute, so is milk. Those are foods I can eat on a regular basis or everyday. I rarely eat nuts, let alone depend on them daily for a source of protein.

Re: eating enough protein

I have been drinking Lactaid milk but am finding it to be giving me heatrburn, I have been able to eat a small amount of cottage cheese as well but with having lactose intolerance I never know how much or when, well I guess a bit of bloat is worth it for the baby>I am very into eating healthy and home made foods and try to buy everything organic if at all possible> I was eating alot of beans but I find they give me horrible stomach pains now. I make yogurt that is plain and I just add some thing to it for flavor this is really good but hard to eat everyday, I will try to add a bit morepeanut butter to my diet I do have a tblsp a day with my apple and usually a handful of almonds but a bit more can't hurt.
