I dream of beef…no really.
I actually dream of beef.
I love everything from tantalizing tar-tar to a richly marbled ribeye. But my love for meat goes beyond just it’s glorious taste.
Beef is POWER PACKED with all the nine essential amino acids you need to consume in order to build and rebuild every cell in your body, including neurotransmitters in your brain. When those transmitters are off, it can lead to depression or anxiety. (and I don’t know about you, but I need all the happy feels I can get)
What happens when we need all that beef has to offer, but are watching portion sizes to achieve other health goals? Simple, you add CB Supplements Multi-Collagen to your dish! Like beef, CB Supplements Collagen Powder is POWER PACKED with reparative Amino Acids (see the benefits of collagen), BUT without hefty calorie and fat counts found in beef.
This modified Mongolian Beef and Cauliflower Rice recipe is an easy way to make a traditionally high carb/high sugar dish more nutritious without sacrificing the delicious.
The Collagen not only adds protein and amino acids, it acts as a thickening agent in place of high carb cornstarch or arrowroot powder and gives the beef a delightfully salty and satisfying texture.
I also exchanged Coconut Aminos for traditional Soy Sauce to cut down on salt and avoid MSGs and replaced brown sugar with Low-Glycemic Swerve.
