My deepest apologies on ignoring this blog over the past couple of weeks. In all guilty honesty, my diet has consisted of soy BLTs, packed daily in a iced lunchbox with yogurt, fruit, and candy bar. I now work two jobs and am back in graduate school full-time, and those heavenly hours of self-discovery in the kitchen are now just a wistful memory. I am trying to work out my schedule to have more free time.
I got this e-mail today in my university account and thought it was worth replicating in this blog, given my inability to actually write a new entry lately! See the original e-mail at EKU Students Today.
Did you know that the average American will eat:
12 sheep 15 cows 24 hogs 900 chickens plus 1000 pounds of other meat in their lifetime?!?!?
According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2.5% of our daily calories should come from protein.
What is an easy way to cut back on protein? Cut out meat ONE day a week!
USAToday has dubbed people that cut meat out one day a week as "flexitarians" AKA people who enjoy meat, but want to cut back for the health benefits.
Try it out this week and cut out meat one day this week!
