Tuesday Talk, May 7th

Happy Tuesday friends!  I hope you had a motivating Monday and are looking forward to a terrific Tuesday!  I will be honest, with me not feeling 100 %, I was a little frustrated with my eating yesterday.  I think I am struggling mentally because I wasn't able to eat for most of last week.  Today will be better though!  I am determined that it will be.  Let's talk for a minute about protein and why it is beneficial to your weight loss efforts.  I know growing up that my dad was a meat and potatoes guy.  Mom made so many meals based around meat.  I am not saying that's a bad thing, but now that my daughter has decided she wants to be vegetarian, I'm realizing that, like my Mom, I focus a LOT on meat.  This is definitely going to be an adjustment process for sure.  I feel like I'm making the same things over and over again, but I'm trying.  This week I'm going to try to add a meal I haven't made before, but I'm hoping everyone will enjoy it.  I am trying to do more with beans, but would like to try to do more with lentils.  I have found that when I eat eggs for breakfast that I feel more satisfied than when I something like cereal.  I know I stay fuller longer with some good sources of protein.  Prior to this recent decision, we were really eating a lot of ground beef and a lot of chicken.  I think once I can find my footing, I'll be able to navigate this change a little better.  What sources of protein are your favorites?  What sources do you use most? Have a terrific Tuesday!
