  • Fed up with meat anyone?

    Does anyone get fed up with the thought of yet another meat meal? I do sometimes and wish to not have to think about it. Yes I do eat fish but probably only once a week normally salmon. I feel the urge to just eat veges sometimes but would have to do it with butter or other fat to feel full. And no I've never been a vegetarian. Maybe when the PB cookbook arrives I will be inspired. Saying all that I do have a beef tongue in slow cooker just as an experiment, will slice it up otherwise my kids will freak!

    It's not a meal without meat. I don't think I've ever had a vegetarian meal.

      Yes, I know what you mean -- can't just have a big bowl of pasta anymore or a bowl of rice and beans (always a staple for me). I am enjoying adding the meat, but it's definitely more work (I'm not very used to cooking it).

        I actually had a giant bowl of broccoli for dinner tonight... like 4-5 servings. Yeah I added a few tbsps of butter and a bit of parmesan cheese but it certainly filled me up! I had a ton of protein during the day so didn't think I needed anymore...

          IDK, I enjoy it too much to get tired of eating it. Tired of cooking it, sure.

          I usually grill, roast, or slice & saute it, with high quality unrefined sea salt, cracked black pepper, usually garlic, and maybe another herb. Simple, fast, and always delicious. It definitely helps that it's all pastured meat, and we buy it in bulk so we get lots of different cuts, and several different kinds, including lamb & goat. I google anything I don't know how to make, which was a LOT at first!

            YES! I get really turned off to all the meat, eggs, fat, etc..usually once a week or so I have a day or two where there is nothing I crave, it all sounds disgusting, especially meat. Even when my belly is growling I just can't bring myself to want to eat something primal. During these times the only thing that usually sounds good is veggie salad (which I have) or a big bowl of pasta(which I don't have). My advice? It comes and goes, just let it pass and eat some veggies or IF and you will get a craving for meat again. I'm sure it has something to do with eating too much protein.

              Meat rocks! It may be safe to say that I have a daily craving for the holy amalgamation of bacon and eggs. In fact, one of my favorite dishes is to take that bacon and eggs, wrap it in nori, pour on some mustard, and eat away! There is no way you could call that bland and boring!

              I tasted good veal the other day and I was hooked. I threw in almost a pound of organic chuck roast from WF in the slow cooker today, it was awesome! Meat only gets boring if you make it boring. It is no different than any other ingredient out there: use your imagination, try to prepare it in a novel way, and you will be sure to not get sick of it. Either that or work out a bit more. I find that I really crave meat in the days where my activity levels are high.

              I recently bought some delicious chicken sausage from TJ's. Just another way to spice up the meat love life. It was novel (I have not had sausage in a while) and delicious.

              Moral of the story: try something new. Meat is a very general term. You never know what could lie around the corner for your taste buds in the wonderful world of artery clogging saturated fat!

                Broccoli has a lot of protein! Its not a complete protein like Asparagus but it has 4 grams per serving which is about 50 calories nonetheless. You probably had 15 or more grams of protein with your meal still - maybe 20 or more!

                  I don't think any vegetable is a complete protein. However on days when you can't think of anything else to eat, or don't want meat, fast. You could also make coconut or nut flour waffles as well.

                    YES YES YES!! MEAT STINKS!

                    Ugh I was about to make a thread about this. I don't know if it's just me, my meat, or what, but damn I'm sick of the smell.

                      I mostly get sick of paying for meat.

                        Yeah, sometimes I get tired of eating meat sometimes. I find, though, that it comes and goes. Shaking it up works for me, having bacon and eggs for lunch, or a smoothie for dinner.

                          I always try and eat a wide variety of meats, and plenty of fish - there is always variety at the fish market! But 1) I live in New York in an ethnic neighborhood with a ton of good options, and 2) I love to try new stuff in general. It's not uncommon to have three to five different kinds of animal protein in a single day for me. Veal, lamb, rabbit, weird cuts of pork, shark, skate, little fish, big fish, shellfish.....If all I ate were beef, chicken, and salmon I might feel the same way. Nah, I love meat!
                          If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                            Sounds like a quality thing. For instance, storebought chicken makes me want to puke, but pastured chicken from our farmer is very neutral. Storebought beef is gray & kind of meh-smelling, but fresh pastured beef from the farm smells so good I could eat it raw - and did!

                            I think storebought conventionally raised meat (& fish) is NASTY. (Of course, I think the same about storebought conventionally raised tomatoes, onions, celery...)

                            I mostly get sick of paying for meat.
                            Totally agree, but it's a perspective thing for me - I was more tired of paying for doctors & drugs.

                            If all I ate were beef, chicken, and salmon I might feel the same way
                            tfarny, totally agreed. Or beef, chicken, & pork. I get excited to try new meats (& veggies) - bison, ostrich, shark, frog, squirrel...my son is dying to kill a squirrel for dinner. I think it'll be fun once he's old enough to manage it.

                              I can honestly say that I don't get tired of eating meat. Tired of buying it and cooking it but otherwise I'm happy with it anytime.
