Hi everyone, I was wondering if any of you  have had any sucess or good resullts with wheat germ protein powder.  After reviewing my diet, it is low in protein and calcium, otherwise all of the other nutrients look good . :)  Would like to become pregnant in the next couple years and will need more protein and calcium in my diet.  I will have to take a supplement for the calcium.  My crohns does NOT respond well to dairy, to say the least.  Anway hope to hear from some of you about wheat germ protein.  Nicole :-) :-) :-)

I'm not familiar with wheat germ protein powder, just whey and soy. Does this come in drink mix form?

We have used a whey protein powder with success. It is considered dairy-free. I also know of soy protein powders.

A really great way to get more protein and calcium in your diet is the smoothie recipe in the back of The Maker's Diet. It has yogurt and raw eggs in it. Worked really well for us, and you really can't taste the yogurt or the eggs! Most all dairy intolerant folks can eat yogurt and it's really good for you because of the beneficial bacteria. Just make sure you're buying a high-quality organic, whole milk, plain yogurt, or make your own as many folks here do.

Good luck to you!

Grateful for everyone's help here!
