Tonight I ate a meatless meal. My plate was full—and it was a big plate. And, I ate a bowl of salad. My total calorie count? 557. That was counting the generous slice of (delicious!) homemade whole wheat bread (Thanks, Shellie!) with butter, and a carton of yogurt with fruit.
That’s about one-third of my daily calorie goal. And that’s about half of my usual dinner’s worth when meat is on the menu.
My challenge seems to be the protein factor. Even with meat in the meal, my protein tally tends to fall short. I guess that means I need to eat more beans, nuts/peanut butter and nonfat or lowfat dairy and eggs.
How do you reach your protein goals? Share, please! 😉
