What Is An Animal-Based Way of Eating?

🥩 🍗 🥓 🥬 🍓 🥩 🍗 🥓 🥑 🥒 🥓 🍗 🥩 🍠 🧄 🥓 🍗 🥩 One of my favorite video content creators says, at the start of each of her videos, that she eats an “animal-based keto diet”. Yeah. It isn’t the terminology that matters; it is what we stick in our …

VIDEO: Roasting Pork with Garden Herbs

After mere seconds of watching, you will already know this…but I am not a videographer. I just used my phone and did the best I could BUT the resulting “roast” turned out FANTASTIC! So I’m glad I recorded it, so I could share the process with you!

SNACK TIME!

These recipes are all low carb at the very least, keto for sure, and many are suitable for carnivore if you use seasonings. I worked hard to break my snacking habit, especially in the evenings. But as I find my 2 meals getting further and further apart on busy days I often need just a …

Changes Coming Again!

I am a huge advocate of listening to my body and knowing its signals. Every year this seems to happen: though I love my meat-based diet, when spring comes I start craving the bounty of beautiful vegetables and leafy greens and fresh herbs and, occasionally, a little fruit. Through the winter I crave animal-based, and …

Recipe: Courtney Luna’s Carnivore-Keto Dinner Roll

I decided to try this today, but instead made a mini-loaf in my 3×5 glass loaf pan. I doubled the recipe that is linked here and, of course, I didn’t make it exactly as she created it: I added about a tsp of sour cream with about ½ tsp of baking powder. It turned out …

Quick Chicken Wraps

I came home HUNGRY and wanted something NOW! This was my answer. And definitely will be the answer in the future! I like to keep chicken or turkey deli meat when I can find a clean brand, and use them for “noodles” or layers or wraps or other things. This time I wrapped a couple …

Cooking: Animal-Based Snickerdoodlers

I recently bought a whole pork belly with the skin on, and cut it into approx. 1# squares. To prepare them, I roast one in the AFO, wrapped in parchment and then foil, skin-side-up, at 325°F, until done. (This depends on the side of the square, the thickness, etc.) I then separate the skin from …

Cooking: Cordon Bleu Lasagna

OK, this isn’t technically a lasagna, though it is layered…and it isn’t technically a chicken cordon bleu, though it has a similar profile…but what it IS, is delicious! In a small round baking dish that I’d sprayed to prevent sticking, I laid down a couple of thin slices of deli chicken…then some diced ham…then some …

Now THIS is Something Good: Chicken Melt Pizza

Sundays have typically been pizza day for Pete & I. But when we’re taking the grands to church, we also take them out for lunch afterward, and then don’t have our pizza. Today, however, the kids had other plans and I couldn’t have gotten to church anyway so we had our pizza day. Pete has …

A Before and “During” Comparison

As I’ve said multiple times – here and elsewhere – I am not doing this for weight loss. Actually I hate the weight loss. I hate the excess skin. I hate the abdominal pannus. I hate how mushy my body feels everywhere. I never wanted it. I will always be in the “during” stage. Because …

What a Difference a Shape Makes!

Pork belly. I love the stuff, and eat quite a bit of it. But I wanted to do something a little different tonight. So as I was laying out my pork belly strips to go into the air fryer I twisted them. Seasoned with salt and a little bit of onion powder plus a few …

Just Another Carnivore Bread Experiment 🎖️

There are tons of carnivore bread recipes out there. So why don’t I just use one of those? Well, for some of us the fun is in the creating. I have always cooked and baked using the SoMP (Seat of My Pants) method. Even with a recipe, I always make changes as I work – …
