A Good Meal
I was so disappointed with the food choices in the shopping cart next to me that it inspired me to post up what a decent meal looks like! I sooo wanted to take a picture of the shopping cart at Costco without looking weird but the opportunity did not present itself. There was a family who loaded the card with every imaginable packaged food and sugar drinks without any lean meat or real food choices. Not to brag, but my cart had chicken breast, greek yogurt, spinach, bananas, apples. Ok, with that out of the way... Try eating real vegetables you can pick, whole grains, and lean meats. I usually hunt most of my meat so it is grass fed (higher omega 3 fats instead). The above picture is not one meal for me ok! I cannot eat that much. It was 2 meals. I know you carbo freaks will be saying "that is too much potato" but 1, I dont care, and 2, My dog ate most of them. I just ate 2-3 per meal. Oh and here is Justin's health tip of the day... use greek yogurt instead of sour cream on your potatoes. It tastes almost the same but is stacked with protein and less bad stuff. See nutritional data: Okay, and if that is not enough for you I will give you one more health tip from bronze medalist Christine Girard: When eating a meal half your plate should be veggies, 1/4- lean protein, 1/4 whole grain.
