Happy Tuesday to you!

Your challenge today is to EAT ONE COMPLETELY VEGETARIAN MEAL.
You choose the meal and what you eat.

The one misconception that many of us have is that vegetarians don't consume protein. This just isn't true (or healthy). Great ways to get protein into your vegetarian meal are:

*Beans (kidney, black, garbanzo, lentils, etc.)

*Soy products (soy milk, edamame, etc.)

*Nuts & seeds (Almonds, Cashews, Filberts, Hemp Seeds, Peanuts, Pumpkin seeds, Sesame seeds, Sunflower seeds, Walnuts)

*Grains (Barley, Brown rice, Buckwheat, Millet, Oatmeal, Quinoa, Rye, Wheat germ, Whole Wheat, Wild rice all have protein in them!)

*Vegetables (Asparagus, Beets, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Okra, Onions, Mushrooms, Peas, Leeks, Spinach, Corn, Tomatoes, Watercress, and Yams all have protein in them!)

*Fruits (Apple, Banana, Cantaloupe, Grape, Grapefruit, Honeydew melon, Orange, Papaya, Peach, Pear, Pineapple, Strawberry, Tangerine, Watermelon all have protein in them!)

Eating the above foods will do your body good! What will your vegetarian meal be? Feel free to share what you had on the menu!

Have a FRESH FOODS TASTE GREAT Tuesday!



“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
