106. “How much protein do I need?”

There is a lot of confusion out there about how much protein you need in a day. 

That is why I really enjoyed this conversation with Beth Lipton. Beth is a food and wellness writer and shares her tips on why it is important to have meat-centric meals. Eating is all about self-care and giving the body what it needs, so the most important eating habit we can practice is listening to our body. 

Our body requires a lot of energy to keep up with all of life’s demands, and the older we get, the more we need to maintain our physical health and muscle mass. Protein is an excellent source of what the body needs, and when paired with other self-care exercises, it can lead to a healthy and less stressful way of living. Making meat and fish a regular part of your diet can potentially elevate your health, energy, and muscles!

🍖 Beth is a food and wellness writer, recipe developer, and the co-author of a cookbook called Carnivore-ish: the concept of the book is that we should be centering animal protein on our plates. 02:09
🏋️‍♀️ Beth's friend and co-author Ashleigh has a strong background in muscle building, especially for women. 06:33
⚡ We need energy for our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual demands: energy is a thing that you build through your habits. 09:03
🧘‍♀️ Meditation practice is not about clearing your mind: Jill is on a journey of getting out of being a hyper person. 13:20
🤔 When we become more aware of the negotiations in our heads, we become more disciplined: meditation helps with discipline and keeps us from worrying about the future too much. 17:10
👠 Women don't expect anyone else but themselves to be perfect, and we need to work on that: I'm the master of my own universe. 22:53
✅ You need all 9 amino acids to have a complete protein intake: animal proteins are superior, but that doesn't mean you can't get enough on a vegetarian or vegan diet. 29:30
👩‍⚕️ The protein you take in today affects your energy over 24 hours: our bodies are exquisitely designed to handle anything we put in them because we are omnivores. 34:55
🥩 Carnivore-ish has 125 recipes and a ton of variety. 38:58
