Should You Eat Protein and Vegetables at Each Meal?
At EVERY meal ask yourself this one question: “Do I have Protein and Veggies in this meal?”
Losing weight and getting in shape isn’t just about running or resistance training. It’s also about changing your relationship with food. Get in the habit of making this a question you ask yourself EVERY TIME you eat. This will create awareness of what’s actually on your plate.
Example of each meal:
Breakfast: Protein Shake with Spinach and Berries
Mid-Morning Snack: 1-2 cups Vegetables with Hummus
Lunch: Turkey Lettuce Wrap
Afternoon Snack: 3-4 Stacks Celery with 2 Tb. Almond Butter
Dinner: Tilapia with Asparagus
Who says it’s hard to eat veggies at every meal? This will simplify how to get what your body needs without a lot of thinking.
Awareness is KEY! Make this a habit, just like brushing your teeth.
