Where’s the Beef?? Satiation Nation, That’s Where!!

October 29th, 2011 No Comments Tags: , , , , ,

I have spent the better part of my Saturday at bella Nella’s Cucina in Toronto with Canada Beef as the host along with many food bloggers. How lucky am I?? VERY, that’s how! Let me tell you, it was no bum steer, that’s for sure!! Although I’ve been married for 25 years I’ve spent a lot of time giving roasts and no time making any. Go figure!!

We got a lot of juicy details around how to make a roast and more. And I’ll admit, it’s embarrassingly cinchy. Who knew?? Very soon my neighbours will smell the aroma emanate from my kitchen with envy as we dine on these delectable dishes.

I must admit I do crave meat from time to time and I answer that call of Mother Nature. After all, my body must be craving some of those naturally nutrient rich ingredients whether it’s the iron, the myriad of B vitamins and minerals. Beef truly covers the gamut of goodness. Last night’s craving was quelled with a burger.

We sampled various tantalizing recipes from Beef Minestrone, Roast Beef Pinwheels, Rosemary Beef Skewers, Cheesy Beef Stuffed Mini Potatoes and more. One bite here, another bite there, here a bite, there a bite, everywhere a bite bite!! As I drove home with that warm satisfying feeling I was totally satisfied and satiated. I realized that satiation too is an important quality of this protein rich food. As a successful weight loser I don’t like to leave the table with my stomach still pining for more. Beef takes the proverbial cake in that department.

I may talk ’til the cows come home about ensuring you have a balanced diet, touting you get your 5-10 servings of fruits & veggies each day. Do answer that call of the cavernous stomach with an excellent protein source, to bring you to satiation nation. Now when my family asks “where’s the beef?” they’ll know it’s coming out of the oven some time soon….
