I enjoy a good cup of yogurt once in a while. I my recent effort to eat smaller portions and more frequently, I bought some yogurt as a breakfast/morning snack option. Per my brother Ryan’s suggestion, I grabbed a few of the Greek yogurt cups. They have something like 12 or 13 grams of protein in them and they’re only $1 at Wal-Mart. As far as yogurt cups go, they’re terrible. As far as protein sources go, they’re amazing! This has led me to the following relationship:
Note that as the quantity of protein in a food rises, the tastiness plunges. That’s not to say that things with protein aren’t tasty. Steak is both high in protein and very yummy! But if you take a steak and pour protein powder on top of it, you’ve ruined a perfectly good thing.
On the other hand, if you could somehow extract all of the protein out of a big fat juicy steak, you’d have mana from heaven.
On your next visit to the grocery store, find a product that has a second “healthier” version with lots of protein. Buy both and alternate bites. I bet the protein enriched version tastes like Mountain Dew if citrus were poop.
The secret to building a lot of muscle is simple: sear your taste buds.
