Health Challenges

I’ve been making a concerted effort to add protein to every meal for the last month or two. My thyroid conked out last fall; and when I complained to my endocrinologist about my post prandial drowsiness, he sent me home with a blood glucose monitor. I had already figured my blood sugar was taking a nosedive when I ate too many carbs, but little did I know that it was peaking at an elevated level. Well, after lots of testing, my labs looked good, so I’m not diabetic nor even pre-diabetic, but I do need to watch my diet.

Before I had my test results, I was a nervous Nelly and  googled what I’d need to do if pre-diabetic. First up, lose weight. Uh, no way. This Skinny Chick would disappear. Exercise more. I run, practice power yoga, can do push-ups. No, thank you to more. So what was left was tweaking my diet. And what do you know, incorporating more protein into my meals worked. It was key to improving my quality of life, lessening the fog which enveloped my brain after meals, and keeping me satisfied after a meal.

Make Every Meal Count

If you need to lose some weight, improve your metabolism or just age beautifully, research suggests that adding quality, protein-rich foods can help. Why not challenge yourself to 30 days of eating protein at every meal and see if you feel the difference? I bet you will. Protein rich meals satisfy you longer as they take longer to digest, so you won’t be hungry an hour after you eat. Protein also provides essential amino acids needed for cell repair and reproduction.

Beef Kabobs

It’s no secret that my family loves beef. They are carnivores through and through. Steaks are a given for birthday celebrations, a rib roast dons our Christmas table and we grill burgers nearly every weekend throughout the summer. I love marinating beef to shake it up a bit and these beef teriyaki kabobs are easy and impressive. I mixed up a marinade the night before, poured most of it in a zip top bag along with some cubed beef tenderloin to marinate. The next day I chopped my favorite vegetables and drenched them in the remaining marinade. When dinner time rolled around, we fired up the grill, skewered the kabobs and let the charcoal work its magic. Let me tell you, this was one delicious way to incorporate good quality protein into my diet.
