I'm presently trying the auto-immune protocol, dairy-free, nut free paleo diet.
I vitamix a smoothie with 1 can coconut milk, 6oz spinach (cooked first in .5oz coconut oil), and 1/2 cantaloupe (12oz).
It makes 3 servers, each with: 25g fat, 18g carb, 7g protein
I'd like to increase the protein content, but am not yet ready to try commercial protein powders because I'm trying to limit variables as I trouble-shoot a pesky remaining health issue. Because I'm nut, diary free, adding almond butter or whey protein are not options for me right now.
What whole, paleo friendly food can I add to my smoothie to increase the protein?
(I suppose I could eat 4oz of ground beef first, then drink the smoothie. The idea of blending in beef into a green smoothie doesn't sound appealing).
Thanks for any out-of-the-box suggestions, Mike
