Vegetarian Proteins Options

I’ve been trying to loose some pounds and back on fitness pal’s 1200cal meal planning. I find it absolutely helpful to replace meat protein with vegetable protein. It fills you up without accumulating too many calories.

Air plant flowering?

image

I only had this air plant for a few weeks. I saw a growth in the middle that resemble a bud. There’s a slight pink color change as well. I’m having mixed feelings. I look forward seeing the plant at its prettiest but yet that’ll also be the end of the plant’s life. However, I heard flowering is also the time the plant will make its babies.
Will update later.

How cool to bring your salad like this? But need to find a big enough mason jar to full my stomach for a full meal.
