Salmon Only....A Good P+F Meal?


#1

Is salmon by itself a good P+F meal?

An 11 oz peice of salmon has 500 cals, 14g of total fat, 0 carbs, and 60 grams of protein.

I know it isn't a "meal" you'd serve to your visiting friends, but for a T-dawg 2.0 diet, would it be sufficient?


#2

Of course it is. Its protein and fat is it not?? But hell id also take the chance to get some veggies in if you can.


#3

I have salmon once per week. Along with it I have a tomato salad and a glass of POM juice.


#4

I have the exact same(minus the salad) meal every four days; POM and Salmon. Very healthy and benefical, specially for the heart.


#5

What phil said. Make sure you have veggies.


#6

Sure. But as Phill said, I'd add some veggies. Cook them in olive oil too. I like more fat than that in my P + F meals.


#7

Yeah, I usually steam broccoli and carrots in the microwave and pour olive oil on top of them as a meal... I was just wondering.


#8

Totally. Salmon and olive oil with some green leafy veggies on the side. Now that's a meal.


#9

Salmon is a great way to spice up the 'chicken breast only' diet... I buy big bags of frozen salmon steaks from Costco and eat salmon a couple of times a week.


#10

I find that canned salmon is crazy cheap, like $1.50 for a pound...which is something like 84 grams of protein, not to mention all the EFAs.
