            maranne and miriam- thanks!

            taco salad is just my name for it. No flour based round thingies involved :-) Just the ground turkey, spinach or lettuce, tomatos, olives, cheese, sour cream, salsa, avocado. I pile it all on top of each other on a plate and chow down.

                  Jedi- P90X is exactly what I needed and I do like it. But I will not be sad when my 90 days are done :-) I have 4 weeks left and I'm looking forward to being able to take a week or two off. I'm tired!

                        Do you eat beef? I'm thinking a little ruminant derived fat would give you some Omega-3. All that poultry and pork seems a bit heavy on the Omega-6 end. Just thinking.

                        It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

                          grandma, I'm having a hard time with beef right now. I'm either getting crappy cuts of it or I'm not cooking it right- more likely a combination of both. I'm also coming off of a few years of vegetarianism so I'm adding and deleting things in baby steps. The pork chops I listed above were the first ones I've had in probably 8 years or more.

                          I have a package of steak in my fridge right now but I'm scared to cook it. I want it to be good and I want to like it but it just never turns out right. :-(


                          • #14

                            Steaks are more difficult, you need a good cut and to cook it right. But for your taco salad ground beef is as easy as turkey BUT ground beef has an N6:N3 ratio of 8:1 (a little lower of grass fed) where ground turkey has a ratio more like 14:1.

                            On the steaks, I'm not very good at it either, but to be a nice steak, you need a fatty cut (ribeye) and cook it to just medium. I usually make the mistake of buying lean cuts and cooking it to well done. All you get then is leather.

                            It's grandma, but you can call me sir.


                            • #15

                              Yes that sounds exactly like what I'm doing- buying the lean cut and then cooking it to well done and yes it's definitely leather.

                              Thanks for the information on the omega ratios- I had no clue that ground turkey was higher on the 6 than ground beef. Will definitely make the switch next time I go grocery shopping. In the meantime, I'll eat my left-overs- don't want to waste them. :-)

                              I need to re-work my dairy comsumption also. Once I deplete my dairy stocks, I will be re-evaluating how to cut back a little more on that. I love my dairy though !
