I was in the middle of a kickboxing video just now (okay, not really the "middle," but only 6 minutes in to a 20 minute video) when I started getting a headache. I put the video on pause, and looked at my calorie count for the day. Less than 1000 calories. Oops.
I made a veggie burger and ate a 140-calorie granola bar, and I already feel better. It's good to know that I can recognize and address a food fade when I feel one coming on. In the past, I might have just ignored the feeling, or taken ibuprofen immediately when what my body actually needed was some fuel.
I noticed on my Spark nutrition tracker that I've barely been getting enough protein, though. What do you do when you need some extra protein? Any ideas for someone kosher vegetarian like me? (fish/dairy are okay)
