Article Excerpt:

Last week at the gym I was watching the Food Network while walking on the treadmill.  My 60-minute walkw was narrated by two shows about meat: one highlighting the best burger these foodie folks had ever had, and the other about barbecue.  By the time I got off the treadmill, I wanted a steak or a hamburger so badly I could hardly stand it.  

I suddenly realized I hadn't had red meat in a few weeks, and dang, could I tell.  I wanted some beef. Or bison. Or venison.  I felt like a cave woman, about ready to chase down a grass-fed cow myself.  Give this girl some meat, STAT!  

Yes friends, I'm the girl that has a raw foods feast on the weekend, then cooks an entire beef roast for herself during the week.
