I’ve eaten animal protein my entire life. There are very few meals that don’t include animal protein. But this is the first time I’ve gotten this serious about hitting 100 to 130 g of protein every single day.
I’ve always had protein requirements for my clients meeting body composition roles, but I never needed to be on a red carpet or shooting a role and I considered myself a type B+ person not a type A. But man did I underestimate how much of a difference it could make for me personally, and all I did was add more protein to my plate.
Since I’ve had three babies in five years (wowza it’s been a whirlwind) and low iron and ferritin in postpartum, I’ve really been leaning into the red meat and organ meats. And that’s the icing on the cake -- my blood tests are stellar, my energy is all time high, my muscle mass/body composition is pre-baby levels and I owe that to eating 2x the protein and red meat every other day if not everyday including ancestral blend a couple times a week from Force of Nature Meats (code Kelly10 saves you 10%). Zero thoughts about food in between meals, zero cravings and just showing up for myself on my plate!
Don’t just prioritize protein like I always did, commit to it. Now onto my deliciously simple beef taco recipe...
