I admit it. I’m not all that great at cooking seafood — or steaks — even though I *love* eating them. That’s why I’m thrilled to sign up for Ann Marie at Cheeseslave’s new online cooking class to learn how to cook wild caught seafood and grass-fed meats like a pro.
As she’s been preparing to teach the class, I’ve been growing more and more anxious for the announcement of its arrival. And, guess what? It’s here! Enrollment opens today. I’m ready to get out of my cooking ruts. Roasts, ground beef, chicken? No problem. But my cuts of steak from my annual beef purchase? They stack up in my freezer, occasionally getting used to make steak bites or stir fries. I’m good at using up liver, but I’ve still got last year’s heart & tongue piled away in the dark recesses of my frozen food collection.
Ann Marie’s new Surf & Turf class promises to remedy that.
From the class website:
You’ll learn how to:
* Get more fish into your diet — and how to shop for it and prepare it
* Cook a variety of cuts of meat, instead of the same old ground beef and chicken breasts
* Prepare delicious nutrient-dense organ meats like liver and heart in a variety of ways
If you are:
* On SCD or GAPS
* Eating grains & starches but want to learn how to cook grass-fed meats, organ meats, and seafood
This is the class for you!
Seriously, folks. This *is* the class for me (and maybe you, too?)!
Need a Mood Cure?
Protein & Fat is where it’s at. Ann Marie has this to say:
Protein is made up of chains of amino acids, which are the precursors for the neurotransmitters in our brain. The amino acids in protein are the building blocks of endorphins and serotinin. According to Julia Ross, pioneer in the field of nutritional psychology and author of The Mood Cure, lack of protein causes anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADD, and alcohol/drug addiction, and a host of other problems.
Julia says we need 20-30 grams of protein per meal — three times a day. And that’s just to maintain our current brain chemistry. Animal protein is the most nutrient-dense form of protein — so why not just cut to the chase? Anxious? Depressed? You need more protein!
It’s essential to always eat fat with protein. I’ll teach you how to cook with healthy fats — and if you’re dairy-free, there are plenty of non-dairy substitutes.
The Class Details
It’s a 13 week class. Enrollment closes on August 14th, and classes begin on August 18th. The cost is only $120 — less than $10/class. (So worth it! Plus it comes with a 30-day money back guarantee.)
