some fats are good but not too much

Inspiration. Perspiration. Perseverance. Accept everything about myself- I mean everything, you are you and that is the beginning and the end - no apologies, no regrets.

Above is a link to information about protein, including sources. You can get a lot of protein from vegetables, so try to increase your veggie counts. Whole grains also contain protein - have you tried some of the different kinds, like Quinoa? And then there is always soybeans and tofu to try!

Hope this helps.

So, I have been tracking myself for two days now, and I am eating a LOT of fat, and not enough protein. THe problem is, that most of the fat I am eating is coming from protein. I know that beans and lentils are a low fat source of protein, but what others are there? I had turkey today but I don't really like turkey. Actually I don't like meat very much. I tend to eat it only when craving it, a couple of times a week, but eggs, cheese and peanut butter are all high in fat. Also, I like something on my toast that is savory, not sweet, are there any ideas outside of butter/butter substitutes?
Thanks every one!
