Top 10 Habits – #3

Today’s Habit is #3 – Eat Lean Protein at Every Meal 🍗🍖🍤🥚

Get to know your protein sources:

• Lean meat such as beef, pork, or wild game
• Poultry such as chicken, turkey or duck
• Fish and seafood such as shrimp or scallops
• Eggs & egg whites
• Cottage cheese or strained plain Greek yogurt
• Protein powder such as whey, egg, vegetarian blends, etc
• Cooked lentils or beans
• Tempeh or tofu

Using the list above, choose protein sources you like and include them at
each meal.

And if you’re a plant-based eater (in other words, vegetarian or vegan), know that with some careful menu planning, you can meet your protein needs with plants.

Each meal should contain one selection, but mix and match however you
choose.

Servings for lean protein:
Women start with one palm-sized portion and men with two palm-sized portions.

On Friday for 10 weeks, I will be introducing one of our top 10 habits. We work with clients to develop these habits slowly so that they work into their lifestyle. We all have different occupations, family situations, stressors, obligations, etc.

These habits are GUIDELINES that you adapt to fit your needs as you begin to develop them and incorporate them into your daily life.

I decided to go from #10 and count down to #1. Fitness and nutrition changes are tough enough, and then throw on all of the conflicting information and it’s even worse.

We try to cut through the noise and simplify the changes that can have the most impact.

I didn’t say it was easy to implement, but they are simple concepts to understand. We can help apply them to YOUR situation.
