Last week I carried beef jerky with me wherever I went. Sometimes just knowing I had a beneficial in my purse was enough to get me over the momentary stress. Other times chewing on the tough jerky worked the stress out of me.
This week I bought some sliced roast beef at the deli. I was late getting home to cook lunch. I ate a slice of roast beef in the car. It was just what I asked for: beneficial, fast and filling.
Both of these foods are probably too salty to be 100% good for me. But I’m not stressed every day, and I’m confident the beef is better for me than some of my other choices.
Tonight I had a good visit with my Mom at the rehab facility. She can hold her glass now and take a drink. I feed her the meat and vegetable part of her meal. She has to help with the spoon to get her dessert. She is learning to make use of her left hand. We had such a good time looking at family pictures on my computer. As I left my Mom said, “I love you, Suzanne.” My name has never sounded so beautiful.
It was late when I got home, and I walked in the kitchen feeling frantically hungry. I ate two pieces of beef jerky and settled down inside. After that I could wait for dinner.
Right now I’m comfortably full and very happy.
Some brands of roast beef are harmful to me as they contain caramel color, dextrose, or some other flavor enhancing solution, such as Boar's Head. And most folks behind the deli counter don't really know what's in the meat they sell.
I've found three different brands of roast beef that are good for me, the one from Whole Foods being the best of of them. It's too bad I haven't found Roast Lamb anywhere.
The best places I've found for lamb is Sam's wholesale or Costco. They both have grass fed New Zealand lamb for a very reasonable price.
Thanks for the hint on carrying some beneficial protein. I've recently turned to potato chips for a snack and I know that's not beneficial. Every so often, I go to my local Greek Restaurant and get a side order of gyro meat. I know it's only half lamb; the other half beef and it probably has other ingredients that I don't want to know about, but it sure satisfies. I'll check out the Whole Foods jerky today.
