I am going to try going all next week without eating meat from land animals, just as a way to make myself incorporate more legumes in my diet and try some new things. I know I say I am all about the protein, so I think some readers assume that I do low carb, which I don’t. I do moderate carb and ‘real’ carbs like whole grains…. Most times – the occasional bagel sneaks its way in during the week 😀
I just concentrate on getting enough protein because of my workouts, and when I concentrate on getting enough protein, usually the other macros fall into place.
I will eat fish and seafood (do clams have legs??), and eggs and dairy (of course). I also am going to try really hard to avoid meat analogs like Boca burgers and morningstar products. Those are processed, so don’t want to switch from a ‘natural’ meat to a processed analog as that defeats the whole foods point. I try to avoid soy more now anyway.
I have some pork to use up tomorrow, then starting Monday I will do this and post up any new recipes that I come up with.
Anyone want to join me on a fun challenge?
