My Protein Plan:

Monday, February 28, 2011

I eat a variety of greens, sprouts, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. I also eat a small amount of fruit. For breakfast, I drink a green smoothie most days with either spinach, mung bean sprouts, a banana, stevia to sweeten, and Super Green Powder. I sometimes add an apple and change the greens from spinach, to kale, collard, or today tiny baby bok choy.

For lunch I have a salad with spinach, mache, pea sprouts, English pea sprouts, radish sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, and a variety of colorful marinated vegetables as a topping. I often add nasturtium flowers and eat this salad rolled up in nori. For a simple dinner, I have a variety of sliced vegetables such as zucchini, cucumber, celery, radishes, tomatoes, and baby carrots with a raw almond butter dip or spread that I make hot, salty with garlic, or sweet with grated coconut and dates for variety of taste.

Without calculating anything, I have a variety of foods with amino acids, vitamins, anti-oxidants, and I always focus on taste and beauty of presentation so I have food for my stomach and my soul. I also take a variety of supplements for added insurance for my overall health, but no protein supplements, just whole food.

    This eating plan is reliable in that it helps me reach my goals of reaching my optimum weight and maintaining a high level of strength and energy. If and when I deviate from this and add a small amount of cooked food, such as sprouted bread toast or cooked vegetables, I slow down my progress. When I return, I resume making progress towards my goal. This plan works for me, when I work it. Everyone has different needs on many levels and each person has to find the plan that works for them. If and when your plan isn't working for you, you have to ask yourself, am I following it? And it you are without getting the results that you wish, you have to be open to changing what you are doing.
