New to the Farm
My name is Katie Stockstill-Sawyer and my husband, Derek, and I own and operate a farm and livestock operation in Central Kansas. I married into the farming world in December 2010 and have spent every minute learning all that I can about farming and the rural lifestyle. I work in town as the marketing and communications manager for a commercial construction company, mobile occupational services company and safety consulting and training firm. In the hours outside the office, I help on the farm in any way I can – and sometimes that means just staying out of the way. This blog tracks my experiences as I learn what a life on the farm really means. I wouldn’t change this lifestyle for the world. Farmers and ranchers are some of the hardest working individuals in the world and they do what they do 365 days a year to ensure everyone has access to a safe, healthy and affordable food supply. If you want to learn more about agriculture or our operation, please don’t hesitate to contact me on this blog or at katie.sawyer@sawyerlandandcattle.com. I would love to show you around.

Beef has many resounding health and nutritional qualities – it aids in creating and maintaining healthy muscle mass, it is a great source of 10 vitamins and minerals and is part of a heart healthy diet- to name only a few. But red meat is also a great source of protein making it a top choice for those attempting to shed pounds or simply maintain their current weight.

Adding protein to any meal helps you stay fuller, longer. Research recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition notes that high-quality protein – such as lean beef – improves feelings of satiety. Carbs and sugars move through the body quickly, meaning those hunger pangs return far earlier than the next meal. Protein from lean sources has staying power, meaning they keep you feeling fuller far longer. Satiety is key to success dieting as giving into hunger pangs usually results in additional calorie intake.

The study also reveals that it doesn’t take a move to an all-protein or high-protein diet, like the Adkins Diet, to achieve the feeling of satiety. By simply adding more lean protein to your diet you can fight off hunger longer and win the war of the scale.

Adding more protein is easy. There are 29 cuts of beef, meaning they have less than 10 grams of fat. And beef can be served at any meal, helping people remain full and satisfied throughout the day.

Find what beef cuts qualify as lean and super lean at the Kansas Beef Council website at www.kansasbeef.org and learn more about beef nutrition at www.beefnutrition.org
