Protein meals don’t mean just all meat! Many vegetables are very high in protein. You will get carbohydrates in the veggies, too, but unrefined carbs are good for you.
That is a great source of energy. The carbs to avoid are refined starches and sugars.
A nice protein-based meal will include some meat, fish or poultry. It will also have beans and their kin; black-eyed peas and chickpeas (garbanzo beans).
Also included will be some good green vegetables, greens and a nice banana split for dessert (ha ha, I lied about the dessert).
Here is a nice breakfast menu:
- Sirloin Steak, 4 ounces, grilled (medium rare on mine).
- Eggs, 2 poached.
- Sprouted grain bread toast with natural peanut butter spread.
- Fresh fruit compote (no refined sugar).
- A high-protein-powder shake with raw milk and a little locally produced honey.
Lots of protein and “good” carbohydrates. Probably less calories than a Big Mac and a lot better for you. A great start for the day.
How about this for a lunch menu:
- Grilled Tuna…
