Well, MS has been researching foods with the most protein and today he stopped by the meatless section at trader joes to check out the nutrition labels. He found these beefless strips that have 20 grams of protein per serving. I was reluctant, but agreed to try them. For dinner tonight I dressed them up with taco seasoning, cheese, sour cream and tamed jalapenos and I must say, I think they were outstanding.
I'll definitely try the other meatless varieties they offer. At this stage of our diet, we would not be able to eat strips of steak like that. The beefless strips were softer and easy to chew.
Check them out for sure, I was truly the biggest skeptic.
1/3 package beefless strips
small amount Olive Oil or Butter
|by the way, these are pretty amazing too!|
Saute the strips in heated pan and oil or butter. Generously coat the strips with taco seasoning and cumin. Just heat up the strips, do not overcook. Plate the strips and garnish with cheese, jalapenos and sour cream or salsa. Guacamole would be great too!
For meals like this I just put the plate on my food scale and layer ingredients until I reach 4 oz.
