Friday, Jun 25 2010 - Eating good food
View YEWTREE's food & exercise for this day
We are recommended to eat 5-6 vegetables and fruits a day and to eat less protein.
I am eating vegetables and fruits! This week plenty of kale and asparagus and romaine and fresh peas and grapes and cherries and strawberries and peppers and I don't know what all else. My protein for at least two meals was beans. I eat low fat protein as often as I can, keep oil to a little olive oil only and stay away from butter and processed foods.
Yet it is difficult for me to meet my fiber and protein goals (!!!) for each day. It's hard to keep fats under my goal high. What's up with this? Do I need to eat even more vegetables and gobs of tofu or (what?) no-fat protein?!
