Homestyle Beef and Noodles


There’s a reason we call certain foods “comfort foods.” They make us feel satisfied and satiated. Phase 1’s fruit, pasta, rice, oatmeal, and toast are high-carb, low-fat foods that we naturally reach for to soothe stress. These same foods have a similar effect on your adrenal glands.

Higher glycemic (higher sugar) fruits like pineapple, mango and papaya are on Phase 1 for a reason – their higher natural sugars stimulate your brain’s pituitary gland, its pleasure center, prompting the release of endorphins in the brain, reducing stress and anxiety.

Meanwhile, your adrenal glands are happy too; they love it when your blood sugar is stable. Throughout the day, the whole grain carbs and natural sugars you eat keep your blood sugar nice and steady. When your adrenal glands are calm, they tell your body to efficiently metabolize fat, rather than storing it for a possibly stressful situation.

My Homestyle Beef and Noodles recipe is the perfect meal for Phase 1 on the Fast Metabolism Diet, and it’s got loads of flavor! This hearty dish uses pantry staples along with ground beef for an easy meal the whole family can enjoy. Leftovers are easy to pack for tomorrow’s lunch!

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large saucepan with a lid, brown the ground beef with the onion over medium heat. Add the flour and garlic and sauté 1 minute.
