Some days I know I'm not getting in all my protein. Today is one of those days. Why? Because I didn't eat/drink my morning snack and then at lunch I opted to have a yummy spinach salad first and then tried to eat the chicken I had also taken. The salad was sooooo tasty though!
I think that I miss eating the fresh veggies. Though I do occasionally have some, I almost always eat the protein first because that's what we're suppose to do and then I am too full to eat the vegetables. But today, I chose to eat my salad first. And I'm okay with that.
I only got in about 51g of protein today - about 30g short of what I should consume. Here's what I ate today:
Omelet made with egg beaters, tomato, spinach, mushrooms and cheddar cheese (10g protein)
(I skipped my "snack" because I truly still felt full. Should I really make myself eat if I feel full? Different than not being hungry...)
Spinach Salad with slivered almonds, pineapple, celery and raspberry vinaigrette dressing (<1g protein)
~2oz canned chicken in sun dried tomato sauce (3g protein)
Frozen Protein Shake (15g protein)
4 oz vanilla soy milk (2g protein)
1/2 banana (1g protein)
1/2 scoop Protizyme Peanut Butter Cookie protein powder (12g protein)
Dinner: (CME and I finally got to Red Lobster without there being an hour+ wait!)
Wood-fire Grilled Shrimp Bruschetta (no toast) (approx 21g protein)
3/4 cheddar biscuit (<1g protein)
So tomorrow, I must be intentional and get in ALL my 80+ grams of protein that I'm suppose to have per day. I don't want to make a habit of skipping out on the protein, but the occasional day of choosing veggies first shouldn't hurt. Right?
