I think I may need more protein in my little Mexican life. For some reason my taste-buds lean towards carbs – not protein, so balancing Intuitive Eating with my nutritional needs is going to take some work.
I have been really trying to listen to my body, but the last few afternoons (pre and post-vacation/marathon) I’ve gotten really snacky after lunch. I find myself grabbing big handfuls of trail mix or scoops of PB on bread. While some of it may have been stress related, I do think my body isn’t getting all the protein it needs considering I was training for, and now recovering from, a marathon.
The next few days I’m going to work on incorporating protein into breakfast in an effort to start the day with a balanced body and blood sugar 🙂
Around 10:30am I was hungry, but in the middle of a project. I decided to break with an apple. Again, my hand isn’t dirty, I’m still scarred from my last fall 🙁
Today’s lunch had protein in the form of TJ’s egg white salad. I lalalove this stuff and used to buy it all the time at home!
I piled the whole container in a wrap. I also had some baked Cheetos on the side, but my hand was too covered in orange dust to bust out the camera!
After lunch I still wanted something, preferably something sweet so I had an english muffin with PB&J… In hindsight I probably should have had something like yogurt and fruit or veggies with hummus, but whatev.
I already have a list of protein filled breakfasts to try! I’m excited 🙂
