This week at work we had a health fair and if you signed up for a health screening you can get some kind of rebate on insurance. So far I have not been able to shut up about the fact that my HDL is off the charts (could not even be accurately MEASURED it is so high). HDL is the good cholesterol btw. I’d like to attribute it to my new eating habits but to be fair it was pretty high three years ago too, so it might just be genetic. Olive oil runnin’ through my veins, etc. But the off-the-chartsness must be that I am eating so much delicious, meaty, humanely raised saturated fat! My heart clearly loves it.

I made this meat cheat sheet as a reference tool when I started cooking more protein because it was initially hard for me to get into the habit of non-vegetarian cooking. Now I just stock up the freezer as much as possible, then figure out what I want, thaw it in the fridge, and buy all the fresh ingredients on the way home.

I’m going to keep adding to this as I find recipes I want to make repeatedly. Really it’s just the stuff I personally enjoy but I do like to be referencey and share the meat-love so maybe someone else might find it handy or steal the idea.
