Recipe: Beef and Cabbage Stirfry

P2In my experience, beef on P2 is one of the best ways to maximize losses.  It seems that with most people, choosing  beef as one meal each day helps with consistent lower numbers on the scale.  I cannot explain the phenomenon, I just have seen it happen more often then not.

Remember what Dr. Simeons says about beef in his Pounds and Inches manual under the subheading of Making Up of the Calories:

In America, therefore, low-grade veal should be used for one meal and fish (excluding all those species such as herring, mackerel, tuna, salmon, eel, etc., which have a high fat content, and all dried, smoked or pickled fish), chicken breast, lobster, crawfish, prawns, shrimps, crabmeat or kidneys for the other meal.

According to Dr. Simeons, if beef is to be consumed for one of your meals, then you shouldn’t do another beef during the day, instead you should do fish or chicken.  I happen to believe that fish is the better choice.  And I happen to also believe that beef should be consumed at lunch and the fish at dinner as the beef is harder to digest than the fish and needs a little more active and awake time to do that.

Just my opinion, for what it’s worth!  ::giggle::

By the way, I think it’s interesting that in that quote above he includes ‘kidneys’ where in the actual ‘diet’ portion he doesn’t mention that.  I am wondering what other organ meats he left out that could have been included like liver and such?  Something to think about.

This recipe is one of my “go to” recipes for P2, it’s easy and quick, and incredibly filling.  If you leave the cabbage crunchy then it also last quite a long time for all that chewing involved!
