current fave lunch situation 👆🏼👆🏼 not only do i love this meal because its delicious, but it also is a good example of how to build a balanced plate. even though it seems simple, we often forget balance is so important when building a meat. 1/2 your plate should be fruits/ veggies, 1/4 of your plate should be a starch (grains, potatoes, etc, and 1/4 of your plate should be protein. this really helps with portion control and making sure that we are meeting our bodies requirements for fat, protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins/ minerals.
in this plate i have my protein, which is the just egg. one “egg” patty has 7g of protein, making it nutritionally similar to a regular egg. for my starch i have a piece of whole wheat toast and for my fruit/ veggies i have strawberries, grapes, and avocado.
also reallyyy love the new just egg folded patties. they are made from mung beans (no weird ingredients snuck in there) and have an awesome nutritional profile! plus they are super easy to cook and make for a great protein option!
