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!
