Let’s Eat Meat
Meat is another word for protein.
There is meat-less meat and animal meat that are both sources of protein, and they are popular to consume.
I personally have a hard time with the idea of meatless meat. I’ll eat veggie protein that is a vegetable instead.
But, I if I am going to eat bacon, then I want to eat bacon.
I do know people who really like the meatless meat.
Is it healthier for you? I do not know.
Meatless meat is a very processed food source.
Eat beans for breakfast, or egg cups with veggies.
There are unprocessed options out there that will let you get a good amount of protein.
Lentils and garbanzo beans are good protein options too. Add in some veggies and spices, you’re good to go.
Bread has also gotten a bad wrap.
Yet, whole grain bread made at a local bakery can provide a nice mix of nutrients, and satiation.
It can be part of your main dish, or as a side to add fiber and filler.
Not feeling hungry after couple of hours is a good indicator that you had a hearty breakfast.
Unless you like to have a mid-morning snack. Then keeping breakfast smaller makes sense.
So a piece of bread with your favorite spread, like hummus with veggies, is a great option.
One of my favorites is poached egg, with avocado, on a piece of whole wheat sourdough.
Tasty and filling.
Back to It
Eating food that looks like food is part of what makes eating enjoyable to me.
I did not grow up eating a lot of processed food.
Do not get me wrong! I had baloney, with yellow mustard, iceberg lettuce on brown bread, with a side of frito’s for lunch now and then.
When I learned that baloney was basically a flat hot dog and hot dogs were the left over parts of pork, my love of baloney died.
Sometimes the things determining what we eat is what we have access to.
Thinking of food as what is available and on a sliding scale can let you choose the best of what is around you.
Perfection is not easily achievable, nor very desirable.
Doing a bit better is preferable. What choices are a bit better for you?
