mind/body - good
easy effort

Finally back home and enjoyed being out this morning on my home course with an easy avg. of 6:51. Work wise the week has been action packed traveling through Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming but I always found time to run. Good thing because I'll probably be going that route at least once a month so it'll be a good change of scenery.

As most of you know I'm not eating meat so I thought you would be interested in knowing some things I've been eating to keep up my protein intake. But also list a few recipes that I've found that are tasty. I've been trying to get between 80 and 90 grams of protein per day but it's hard to keep track. For starters I've been eating a lot of beans, no surprise for a beaner eh. I've actually been making my own Chipotle style burritos to include:

2 cups cooked botan rice
1 can Pinto beans
1 can black beans
2 cans Rotel
1 bushel of cilantro
1 fresh squeezed lime
Mix that all up in a large bowl, heat up the tortilla, throw a handful of cheese, and some hot sauce and wallah! No brainer right. The nice thing about this is that you can store it in the fridge and eat it over the next couple of days. I usually have 2 or 3 of these and each one has about 10 grams of protein.
