Perfect Protein Salad!

I have been a bit MIA lately on the blog, at least with a personal presence it seems. Maybe that's because I am doing a lot of scheduled posts. I am working hard on one of my goals and focusing my time on that. I am hoping soon it will pay off!! I can't really say much else right now, but will be able to soon enough and am hoping to deliver good news....

Tonight I whipped up a great Protein salad!
I LOVE kidney beans and don't eat them often enough. I threw together a steak salad and topped it with about a half a cup of these beautiful red beans!


They had a Vegetarian Diet (OR food ) Pyramid on the back of the can, which I thought was GREAT!! I love how activity is the basis of the pyramid! I am not Vegetarian, but eat that way sometimes and have dabbled with it...

Have you gone veggie?

Protein is SO good for us! It serves so many purposes!
  • it carries oxygen
  • helps fight disease
  • heals connective tissue
  • allows muscle contraction &
  • plays a big part in recovery!
Learnin' tastes so good!
You should aim for 10-35% of your daily calories in protein and more if you are training or working out a lot! It is essential to our overall health.
