You will notice that this chart no longer contains the protein count of fish and shellfish items.  That is because, due to the high levels of mercury in all fish and shellfish, but particularly in tuna, we can no longer recommend that pregnant women consume fish or shellfish.  In fact, no one should eat these fish.  The amounts of mercury contained therein can effect the development of the unborn fetus.

You will also notice that I include dairy products in my protein list.  Many people question this decision because of the many health conditions caused by ingesting dairy products.  However, I would like you to know that the many health-related concerns of dairy products apply to ONLY pasteurized dairy products.  Raw, organic milk products do NOT carry with them the same health concerns.  The pasteurization process renders the milk dangerous to ingest.  However, raw milk products provide significant health benefits.
