An Observation on Protein

Since I’ve decided to cut out soy and sugar from my diet, I’ve also cut WAY back on the amount of meat I intake. I’ve found over the past couple days after I eat a meal containing meat that I’m completely exhausted afterwards.

I had steak last night and after dinner I was completely lethargic. Tonight at small group we had ham and after dinner while we were watching part of a video series we’re going through, it took everything I had to keep my eyes open! If I stick with fruits and vegetables I feel much better and more alert.

Makes me think I should stick closer to a plant based diet and move away from animal protein. Or maybe cut WAY back on my animal protein when I do eat it.

Then again, beef and pork are not the easiest to digest . . . I’ll keep thinking on this. Maybe I should just stick with chicken?

At the same time tonight I think I imbibed more sugar than I have in the past couple days. The ham had a sugary glaze on it, and since I got home so late, we didn’t have time to make the instant mashed potatoes (how sad is that!!) so we took a bag of chocolate that my Italian had gotten while he was in the hospital that we hadn’t eaten yet. So of course I had a couple pieces.

Funny thing with that. The first one actually tasted like plastic! The more I ate, cause I pigged out ate several, the more chocolaty they tasted. Huh . .  . . I thought that was interesting.

Well, I’m off to bed. I’m still completely exhausted and tomorrow is only Tuesday.

I did get my measurements done last week. Once I get my grubby little hands on that piece of paper, I’ll post them. I promise!

  1. This is so cool, actually! I've been unitnentionally turning away from a lot of anumal protein. Not sure why I'm doing it (I don't have as clear a reason as you do), but I've been enjoying finding new favorites: quinoa (posted a recipe about this on my blog on Sunday), black beans, and garbanzo beans to name a few. As you come up with great recipes, I'd love to try them!And I know it's only Tuesday, but doesn't it feel like Thursday? Am I the only one?
