Better Than Bacon Recipe

It’s actually fried jerky with fat (trust me it’s amazing), but better than bacon. Dad agrees. He named the title and came up with the recipe. Approximate time: 15 minutes We eat a lot of fatty cuts of steak (rib steak for instance). If you save the fat instead of cutting around it and throwing it out (and store it in the fridge), you can make this delicious dish. It’s shockingly good, try it out. Ingredients: Steak fat Jerky (can Read More

What Does A Typical Breakfast Look Like?

Hate to break it to everyone looking at this blog but, we don’t do breakfast foods. “What do you do for breakfast?” is probably the number 1 question I’m asked. Basically…. We don’t do breakfast. I used to eat cheese and toast and eggs. Now that I can’t eat any of those we eat: Chicken wings, stew, salad, turkey dinner, leftovers, etc. Breakfast is the same as any other meal we eat. Out are smoothies, eggs, cereal, and god forbid Read More

Jerky Recipe

I make a batch of these once a week to keep in the freezer. You can bring it out with you so you have something portable to eat. It’s really satisfying. Ingredients/ stuff you need: Dehydrator (worth it) – Canadian link – currently on sale, American link. I can’t find the one I have, but with these you can control the temperature! (Dehydrators are also available at Walmart, but I don’t think you’ll find a better deal than Amazon). Himalayan Read More

Patreon

Hi Everyone, I’ve made myself a Patreon account and linked to it. I have some rewards on there but I’m still going to continue writing like I usually do. Nothing will be “made to pay” or anything. I’ve always been irritated reading blogs that are supposed to be helping people and when you come to the useful information you have to pay for it. I made the account in the hopes that I can switch from my part-time job to Read More

Scientific Article Hypothesizing EXACTLY My Hypothesis on Food Reactions

Okay, first, I don’t want to take responsibility for this hypothesis because obviously other people have come to the same conclusions. But I did come to this conclusion a couple of years ago and its suuuuper exciting to see other people writing about it. Here‘s the link the paper, the abstract is pretty good… But if you want to read the whole thing you can go to this sneaky Russian website and download it free by putting in the URL Read More

How To Help With Reaction/Mood Symptoms

When I test out a food and it goes badly, or if I accidentally consume something that I react to, there are a number of things I can do that can ease the recovery. Infrared Saunaing – see my blog post. I’ll sauna every day, and if it’s a bad reaction, twice a day between days 8-13 (after the consumption of the food). I usually stop saunaing at about day 16. Activated Charcoal – if I know right away I’ve Read More

Infrared Saunaing – Basically The Greatest Thing Ever

When I react to something, I use an infrared sauna. I’m super lucky to have access to one. I would say it improves my mood by about 20%, as well as energy levels, and gets rid of the itching I get from these reactions as well. I sit in there for 30-40 minutes. I’m not sure if it’s removing the toxins that make me feel better, or if it does some sort of mitochondrial invigoration… Christine is my dad’s grad student Read More

Do You Suffer From Cracked Heels?

Good news! Your feet aren’t dry. It’s not from wearing “bad shoes”, they don’t need moisturizer, and Lufa isn’t going to help. Fortunately, it’s easier than that. This actually wasn’t even a food problem for me. It was a chemical problem. Soaps made by the companies Palmolive (and I also believe Dove), seriously irritate my skin. Mom and Dad both had cracked heels too which resolved when they changed shampoos and soaps. I just suggested to one of my friends that Read More

Filtered Water

I used to scoff at filtered water, and I actually liked the taste of tap water better. Actually at the beginning of the diet when I was paranoid about everything I was eating, Andrey (my husband) told me not to drink tap water and I basically told him he was the paranoid one… Be very careful about what you scoff at, I swear every single thing I’ve scoffed at I now believe -_-. I haven’t done much research into why Read More

Alcohol

The good news is, even though we are so sensitive to food, alcohol doesn’t seem to be a problem! Rejoice in small miracles. The bad news is its dependant on the type of alcohol.   Here are the ones that are okay: Whiskey (Bourbon and American Whiskey labeled “straight” whiskey. Most other whiskeys have caramel colouring made from burnt sugars.) Vodka – Make sure it’s unflavoured. Ciroc (original) is excellent. The above doesn’t make us react because they’ve been distilled so many Read More
