And after my little beef binge of the past week, I'm going right back to cutting it out of my daily diet. Today's little news blip about "people who eat the most red meat daily (about four ounces) are about a third more likely to die over a given decade than those who eat the least (about 19 grams)." Four ounces? That's a quarter of a pound. When I sit down to actually eat something beefy, it's usually more than that, so we'll just go right back to skipping the big dead cow, m'kay? Yeah. Lunch today is a lovely pasta bake with spinach and broccoli made with the awesomeness that is Barilla Plus. This stuff has reinvented pasta for me from a high carb, low nutritive junk food into something that has the protein and fiber I need that just tastes like the junk food I love.
