Getting enough protein: Cooking on the weekend

One of the things that’s difficult about watching one’s macronutrients is that it is harder to eat more than 100 grams of protein per day than one thinks. It’s easy to do this for 1 day, a week, but every day for weeks? That’s hard, even if you just focus on getting that protein first and maybe not looking at carbs and fat. If you’re also counting carbs, or limiting them, it gets even harder. This past weekend I attempted to cook protein rich meals (from scratch).

Saturday night: meat sauce (I didn’t get a final meat sauce picture, but I added sautéed ground beef and mild Italian sausage meat to this).
Sunday night: creamy chicken mushroom sauce (with spaghetti). There were 2 chicken breasts and 2 chicken leg meats in here. Plus a whole boc of sliced button mushrooms and a small box of sliced gourmet mushrooms.
