Thank you, Alex. I’ll take “Protein” for $800.

Today marks the beginning of week two of my newly changed eating habits. After many discussions with friends who are immersed in the fitness/health world, I’ve gotten somewhat of an idea of what my daily nutrition goals are – at least for my two most important components (in my mind), calories & protein. I’m aiming for 1200 calories and at least 100g of protein daily. So, for lunch today I made one of my favorite lunches: tuna with veggies!
