so when i went for my initial visit, the nurse suggested i up my protein intake to see if that would help the shaking and such. (DH giggled and got smacked). so i bought Boost High Protein and i felt great. unfortunately, it's $16/case, and only 3g of protein per serving and i went through 2 per day. would protein shakes be ok? i know a lot of body builders use protein powder shakes for gaining muscle mass, but would it be ok for my purposes?
there is something called EAS lean 15 protein powder. it has 3x the protein plus vitamin C and E and fewer calories. plus it's 25 servings for $20. the contents and stats on it have this disclaimer. ** Percent Daily Values listed below are intended for adults and children over 4 years of age.

there is no indication that it's not ok. usually stuff like that would be "check with your doctor if you are pregnant or nursing". i don't want it as a meal replacemnt or to lose weight or anything. but i hate beans and i'm getting really burned out on chicken etc, and i don't think i'm getting enough to make a difference anyway.
ETA- lactose is not my friend so upping the dairy isn't much of an option. i can drink 2%w/o issue but that's about it.
