The Meat Dilemma – But what about the animals?!

When I was 15 someone told me that someone they knew lived near a slaughterhouse and a pig farm. The slaughterhouse would come pick up the pigs every 2 weeks. Apparently, the pigs would start screaming the night before, because they knew they were going somewhere bad. Now that story is probably completely false, but it hit a nerve. I researched what kind of intelligence pigs had and decided to stop eating pork. I haven’t eaten pork since I was Read More

The Diet – Updated March 2018

Jordan Peterson’s Diet (extremely low carb): Meats: turkey beef chicken lamb duck wild game is fine too, elk, moose, etc. wild salmon tuna – check the ingredients! Get stuff that’s just tuna and water and perhaps salt. organ meat – chicken liver tastes the best I find wild herring – check the ingredients! wild sardines – check the ingredients! Veggies: lettuce arugula arugula microgreens (arugula sprouts) cucumber swiss chard seaweed –check the ingredients! this is hard to find without soy and other things. Read More

How to Save Your Teeth

Bleeding gums, tender gums, discoloured teeth, mouth ulcers and bad breath are all signs of food intolerances. If you have bad teeth, chances are you’re eating foods that don’t agree with you, it’s not just “bad genetics”. This is fixable but do it ASAP because enamel damage doesn’t heal – the gum problems heal. Dad as an example: Dad had gum disease and receding gums. He used a water pick to help but his teeth weren’t in good shape. He has Read More

Zero Carb – What Type of Meat Do I Get?

I’ve been scrolling through comments and there have been a number of questions about what type of meat I’m eating.  Sorry I don’t get to them all, I’m super busy and there are a lot of comments. They’re great to read but I’m too slow to keep up! A couple of things: I try to buy antibiotic/hormone free grass-fed beef as much as I can. Ribeye is my favourite, but I’ll also eat blade roasts (they’re fattier), and ground beef. Read More

What to Do If You’re on Medication

Here’s what I did: Just before I started playing around with diet I was on: Enbrel (a TNF blocker and immune suppressant) Methotrexate (immune suppressant) Seasonal (birth control) 40 mg Cipralex (depression) Minocycline (skin issues) Dapsone (skin issues) 40 mg Adderall (for hypersomnia) T3 (for arthritic and ankle pain) Gravol – nonprescription – to sleep from the Adderall a couple more every now and then I was having arthritic symptoms even while taking the immune suppressants I was on, so I was 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 nasty 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 🙁 I’m going to add probiotics to my daughter’s food when she starts eating solid food. Have to get that microbiome healthier ASAP.  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

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

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
