How much protein per meal at least?

I’m finding myself having to spread my meals out to 6-7 meals per day, but I can’t seem to get 20-30g of protein per meal which I read is recommended for bodybuilding. How important is that or is it just overall protein throughout the day/after workout that’s more important?

Anyone sensitive to milk try that A2 milk?

I can’t handle as much regular milk as I used to be able to. Lactose free milk helps but still problematic. Has anyone tried that A2 milk? I’ve read about it a bit but sounds kind of gimmicky. Was curious of others experiences especially if you are sensitive to dairy. Thanks.
