I wish fasting was an option for me, like for Keith! I don’t carry any extra body weight, and my blood sugar (?) / stress hormones need pretty regular protein.
I haven’t found packaged convenience food protein that works for me. When I go to work, I take a lunch box with a cold pack and bring along Greek yogurt (dairy doesn’t seem to bother me) and leftovers. For traveling, I’ve learned I can swing through a drive-through and get whatever the grilled chicken sandwich or wrap is. I might only eat the chicken itself, but it’s a good protein hit.
I wish nuts and seeds were a more efficient protein source, but I also eat those (as butters when I’m flaring). Cottage cheese is great but all the commercial blends have carageenan, which I try to avoid.
Our nutritional needs sometimes feel totally out of sync with busy modern life! Would love to hear others’ tips and tricks.
