I need beef. Lightly killed and put on a platter.

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

The last few days of March I was feeling continually hungry and stressed and just...off. Last night I made beef stroganoff. And today I feel a billion times better.

I have been trying to cut down on beef consumption, but I find that if I don't eat beef at least one, if not twice, a week, I start to flag. I don't even think about it, but suddenly I start feeling run down and lethargic and my functionality fails. Then I think back and realize that I haven't had beef in over a week.

Physiologically, this makes no sense. I take iron supplements, eat lots of dark, leafy veggies, and don't deprive myself of calories.

But the plain fact is that I do better when I am consuming beef. It doesn't have to be daily, but if it's not one and preferably two times a week, I fall apart.

I need to take this into account.
