Protein and Me
Protein and me have never had a very good relationship. Generally I enjoy chicken, steak and I definitely love lobster but for some reason though IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m just not very good at eating it. Put a plate of chicken and rice in front of me and there is a good chance I will eat mostly just the rice.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve never loved meat and I think growing up I mostly tolerated it. When I was a senior in high school I read the book The Jungle and suddenly became a vegetarian. When I went off to college after that I gained my freshman fifteen because I lived off of cereal, French fries, pasta and pizza.
After a while I started craving a steak, probably because of lack of nutrients I was getting. Not only do I not like meat all that much (I could probably live without it almost entirely) but IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m not a fan of beans either :dunno:
On a daily basis trying to eat enough protein is such a task and I probably throw away most of the meat I cook from going bad. Something about meat sometimes makes me sick to think of eating it and IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m not sure why.
I try to eat cheese and eggs whenever I can since those are the only forms of protein I actually like. If I go out to eat I try to order steak, chicken or seafood because when IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m in a restaurant it doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t bother me.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m not sure how I ever went for a period of time cutting out carbohydrates :duh:
