More often than not, I hear about people having “just coffee” for breakfast.
And…if they do eat breakfast, it’s usually a bagel or a couple of slices of toast with jelly.
I tend to see a LOT of caffeine and a LOT of carbs!
This week, let’s focus on getting in the habit of making sure that every time you sit down to eat, you’ve got something green on your plate and something with protein in it.
This shouldn’t be that hard with a little planning and a good grocery shop!
Doing this challenge will create awareness of what’s you’re really eating throughout the day.
Here’s an example of one day that follows these rules:
Breakfast: Eggs with sautéed onions, spinach & peppers with 1 slice of Ezekiel bread
Lunch: Turkey Lettuce Wrap with an apple
Snack: Handful of celery sticks with almond butter
Dinner: Salmon with Asparagus and a sweet potato
Who says it’s hard to eat protein and greens at every meal?! 😉
Doing this will not only give you more energy throughout the day, but you’ll have better stamina in your workouts and wake up more refreshed and ready to go!
Are you in for the protein and greens challenge this week!?
