Looking for Protein without the Fat
Saturday, May 05, 2012
Today I spent the whole day at home and a lot of time online. Negative? Sedentary. Positive? The ability to really check my foods and make the changes throughout the day that i need to make. I am to eat between 1200 and 1500 calories. Today I was close to 1200...closer than I have been in a LONG time! I tried a new recipe of my own...1 tsp of vegetable oil in a pan, 1/2 cup of green peppers and 1/3 cup of chick peas/garbanzo beans! Yummy! Still those suckers had more carbs than protein. I eat nuts and I have more fat than protein. Nonfat yogurt is okay, but I LOVE the Greek kind. With the nonfat kind I feel like I am eating overly processed fake stuff. Any suggestions anyone? I know fish is good, but I am also looking for a grab and go high protein item. I am thinking of protein drinks???
