After just three days of P90X, I can see that I need to increase my protein intake!! I’m looking for new ideas! I’ve currently thought of a few ways to do this:
1) Purchase a few protein bars.
I definitely do not normally do this, but I found a pretty good deal at Amazon for KIND PLUS, Almond Walnut Macadamia + Protein bars. Using the code KINDMAY5 and the Subscribe-and-Save option, I can get them for right at $1 a piece (if you’ve ever bought these in a natural food store, you know this is a fabulous price)! Thankfully, I’ve been scrimping with this month’s grocery budget, so I have a little extra to play with now! Oh, and I have a few Swagbucks to use!
2) Try a few new recipes with beans!
If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears!!
3) Eat more almond butter.
I received my shipment from the Amazon deal I posted last week — and I think it’s really good. It’s straight almonds – nothing added.
4) Eat more eggs.
So, the beans and eggs are pretty frugal, but the protein bars are somewhat of an indulgence for me! My goal is to look for ways to stick within my budget AND get the right nutrition!
Do you have any other protein suggestions?!!
