You may not be able to pronounce the name of the new Razorbacks coach, Bret Bielema. Neither can I. Another word I couldn’t figure out how to say without being taught is satiety. Say it with me: Sah – tie – uh – tee.
Basically, satiety is the sense of fullness from eating. When I eat a meal that “sticks to my ribs,” it’s the feeling of satiety that’s, well, satisfying. I bring it up because I noticed quite a difference in satiety with the pork loin meal versus the tofu stir-fry meal. Guess which one made me feel fuller longer?
Surprisingly, I was fuller longer with the tofu meal! I’m no dietitian, but I suspect the difference was in the carbohydrate choice rather than the protein. With the stir-fry, I prepared brown rice, which is a whole grain. With the pork, I steamed red potatoes. Giving my digestive system more work to do kept it occupied longer.
