Zero Carb/Carnivore Diet Update

It’s going extremely well. No cravings, arthritis has almost disappeared, mood seems to have improved (it’s been hard to tell with the milk reaction). I will update again in 2 weeks and I’ll know more. About a week after I started the zero carb diet (all meat), I decided it was stupid and had a salad. I woke up the next day with an arthritic flare, mood dip, and skin itching. Obviously cried a bit that day with the loss Read More

Jan 11 Super Quick Update

Hi everyone!! I’m sorry for such a long hiatus a bunch of things happened. I got a reallllly┬ánasty cold. I was sick for 15 days, Scarlett got sick too but was only sick for 9. Super scary. I was all worried about bronchitis and antibiotics and god knows what, but we both survived and recovered, antibiotic free. I started taking a puffer because of the cold. I’m used to colds going into my lungs and turning into pneumonia… it happens Read More

Probiotics with NOTHING Added

I finally found some probiotics with no additives. A powder. And alas, it’s only available in the States. I have to wait for my parents to go there and bring it back ­čÖü I’m going to add probiotics to my daughter’s food when she starts eating solid food. Have to get that microbiome healthier ASAP.┬á I’m using something similar to Natasha Campbell-McBride’s way to introduce food for babies. (She’s famous for the GAPS diet). I’ll be starting with bone broth Read More

Zero Carb – The Carnivore Diet

So I’m onto the next stage of food weirdness. I’m on day 5 of only eating meat. What is the Zero Carb Diet? Literally, it’s people who only eat meat and animal products (this can include dairy). Obviously, it won’t include dairy for me. I still think dairy is evil. Some people have been doing this diet for 20 years. There are tribes that only eat meat as well (Inuit, Massai, etc.) How do they not get scurvy and vitamin Read More

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
