finding new ways to eat.... protein...

Monday, March 04, 2013

I am not big on eating meat... I do like chicken and fish, and occasionally I will have ground beef in a meatloaf or taco...

I am trying to learn to all the options available to me for my protein levels... it seems that is too low and my carbs too high. I appreciate the spark pages and the recipes, I am so glad I can learn as I go to get the most out of what I eat.

With my efforts to increase my walking time and weight training, I also want to make sure I am supplying my body with what it needs to have the energy and not get hungry and eat things that are off limits.

So I have increased my legumes, and milk products.

I am delighted that my energy and feeling "up" has been continuing! YAY!

Member Comments About This Blog Post:

    Legumes, like beans or lentils are high in protein, and I think there are other veggies listed that make up for meat, like mushrooms...

I need to really check it out further.

I like eating some meat, but I have acid reflux and have to be careful how I prepare it and when I eat.

Thanks for all the comments and ideas! blessings! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I Love the Recipes even though I very seldom cook!! I keep thinking maybe Someday I will.

emoticon With a little Education and Planning, I think it is fairly easy to get in your Protein. I do eat a lot of Fish and some Turkey, but other than that I seldom eat Meat. I think I have plenty of energy, and according to the Nutrition Tracker my Protein Levels are usually OK.

    I added a protein powder because I don't eat much meat either.
