Forgot that. Some chicken, salmon, beef, pork, shrimp, whatever I'm in the mood for. Just not in large quantities. In other words, it's usually not the main focus of the meal.
For example, dinner tonight (my, my wife, and kids - a 6yo and a 4yo), is 9 oz of salmon, coated in some herbs and spices, and blackened. Served on whole grain pasta with a sauce of olive oil, white wine, lemon juice, garlic, and green onion. As usual, some salt and pepper to taste.
Last night, was a pound of sausage browned, then onion, green pepper, and celery mixed in. Once cooked, I added some brown rice and enough chicken broth to cook the rice. Cover and simmer. We get 2 complete dinners out of that (leftovers tomorrow night). As usual, some salt and pepper to taste.
I do the cooking, so I plan meals around a limited amount of protein. That's selected first and then the rest of the meal planned with it in mind. Tonight I was craving salmon, so I built dinner around it.
Tomorrow I'm off for a 55 mile ride. I dunno how hilly yet, it's a new route for me.
Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
