Commit 2 Fit | Proteins & Carbs

Happy HUMP day and week three of Commit 2 Fit challenge! Week three always seems difficult so it helps to have meal ideas to keep you going.
I want to post this image again to make sure we know what the serving size is and to make sure you are reading labels

Protein and Carb meal ideas:
  • Egg white omelets - low in calories and high in protein! Scramble four egg whites with baby spinach, mushrooms and 1 oz of swiss cheese [200 calories and just about 3.5g of carbs] Add 1/2 berries for additional 30 calories and 7g of carbs. You can also try:
    • salsa with slice of avocado
    • smoke salmon
    • diced tomatoes
    • feta cheese
  • Deli pinwheels - roll 3oz deli ham and 1oz of cheese in romaine lettuce leaves [200 calories 2g of carbs] Add an orange for 11g and 60 calories
  • Tuna salad on lettuce - 3 oz water packed tuna, lemon juice, chopped celery, 1 tbsp of plain yogurt. 5g carbs and 180 calories
Any more ideas?
