Tuesday, December 11

Remember that the Griffins Hockey Game outing is this Friday! The game starts at 7 pm, and we are closing one hour earlier to be able to get there on time. Last class is at 5 pm and we close at 6 pm this Friday, December 14. Full schedule Saturday morning.

If you are trying to count calories or macros, you need to make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck. There are lots of protein sources besides meat, but most of those other sources carry carbs and/or fats with them. And that means extra calories outside of the ones for just the protein.

Check out the picture below and you’ll see what I mean. Sure, you CAN get 35 grams of protein from peanut butter, but it takes about a thousand calories to do it because peanut butter is mostly fat. Same goes for beans, quinoa or other seeds, grains and vegetables. These foods all have protein in them, but they’re mostly carbs or fats so you have to make sure you are getting the right balance.

So, if you are getting your protein from sources other than meat, make sure you are paying attention to how much fat and carbs you’re taking in too. It’s all about balance and knowing exactly what you are eating.
