For those that have been reading for a while, you know that I have been pescetarian (veggie, but still eats fish) for about 18 years. I know this seems like forever, but keep in mind I TURN 32 TOMORROW!! 🙂
You may have noticed in yesterdays WIAW post that I ate a salad with chicken. This was a very thought out decision that has been in debate for months. I have been weighing the pro’s and con’s and finally just made a decision. I think the final straw was this article in my inbox:
I am pretty good about my protein intake, but I know I don’t get enough- especially when I am training for something. Lately I have been feeling a little weak and run down and no matter how much beans, tofu, and cheese I eat, I couldn’t quite get to the protein amount that I believe will make my body happy.
So, I had Joe grill some chicken and we mixed it into a salad. All in all- tasted great and my body handled it well!
I am in no way becoming a “meat eater”. My meal will still be primarily vegetarian, but I am going to continue with the chicken (when bought and cooked at home) about once a week for the protein. I think this will give me the extra boost I am looking for. I will definitely keep you posted on any changes I notice 🙂
On a fitness note- here’s a new workout from Tribesports for swimmers. It was created by Nikki at LifeAfterSwimming. I have been biking a lot lately and it makes me really think seriously about doing a TRI…. I may need to start doing workouts like this to prep myself 🙂
Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!
Are you a meat eater, veg-head, or somewhere in between?
