The Carnivore Diet And Your Family

the carnivore diet and your family

I’ve seen several posts and tweets on social media lately from meat-eaters and carnivores having a difficult time explaining their eating habits to their family. Some of these individuals live with said family members while others live elsewhere but visit them. No matter the case there will come a time when a family member or two will comment about your diet. Today let’s discuss the Carnivore Diet and your family and how to handle any questions and/or criticism.

The Carnivore Diet And Your Family: Just Be Honest

When it comes to the Carnivore Diet and your family just be honest about why you eat this way and how it works. This is an unusual way of eating as all of us grow up as ominvores. We’re taught that a balanced meal contains meat, veggies, and a starch. So you when decide to eat nothing but meat, fish/seafood, and eggs your family is going to be confused.

When this happens tell them why you eat this way. I told my family that I don’t digest various veggies well anymore so I eat primarily meat. Yes, I continue to eat certain fruits (mostly berries) but I don’t consume diary (outside of butter), veggies, most fruits, grains, and certain nuts because I don’t feel well when I consume them.

This may make your family think about how they eat. Some may actually figure out certain foods cause them problems so they will stop eating them.

The Carnivore Diet And Your Family: Don’t Debate Them

When it comes to the Carnivore Diet and your family don’t debate them about your eating habits. There are going to be some individuals who will think you are damaging yourself and they will will try their best to make you eat differently. They will probably bring literature or studies to show you are “wrong.” When this happens don’t debate them as they probably don’t want to listen.

For me, I nod and tell them I understand their concerns and leave it at that. I’m not going to start an argument at dinner or a barbecue or wherever we are. Even if the family member or members ridicule me or my eating habits I’m not going to push back. And I’m not going to call out their eating habits either.

This way works out pretty well in my experience because if you don’t add fuel to the fire then it will burn out. Thus, if you don’t argue with the family member he or she will see their actions are useless so they will stop.

Independence Day Limited Edition Designs

independence day limited edition designs

Today I want to announce the new Independence Day limited edition designs available on t-shirts. The shirts are available now and will be available all of July.

Independence Day Limited Edition Designs: Why I Made Them

As an American Independence Day is very special to me and the entire country. This is when we celebrate our independence from Great Britain after a hard fought war. Yes, many of us don’t really think about this holiday as we should as we spend the time grilling out with our family and friends, attending events like firework shows, or enjoying our time off from work.

Independence Day Limited Edition Designs: My Design Inspiration

I turned to the actual text of the Declaration of Independence for inspiration. Upon reading the entire document I thought about how I could I use the text in my design. After a couple days of designing and think I developed the slogan: Life, Liberty, And The Pursuit Of Meat.

Yes, this is a play on Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that’s stated in the Declaration of Independence. I think it makes a great slogan for a t-shirt.

There Are Multiple Images For This Design

I didn’t want to focus on one type of meat for this shirt because people like various types of meat. So I made designs for the following:

This way there is a shirt for everyone’s tastes. And you get to display that your inalienable includes obtaining as much meat as you possibly can.

Here Are The New Designs!

The shirts are available in white and black and in various sizes. Get yours today!

Grass-Fed Butter: It’s Worth The Cost

grass-fed butter

When I started Keto back in 2017 one of the first things I changed was the fats I used in cooking. I couldn’t use the seed oils anymore because how harmful they are to our bodies due to the inflammation they cause. That led me to learning about better fats to use which led me to grass-fed butter. Yes, I know this type of butter is more expensive than the regular butter you can buy in the store but it’s so much better for us, which is why it’s worth the cost.

Grass-Fed Butter: Which Ones I Use

Many people love Kerrygold butter and I will use it when I can get it on sale. However, I don’t have a particular brand I stick with as I found other grass-fed butter brands which are just as good.

While shopping at Publix one day I came across Truly. Due to its sale price I bought it. It has a great taste like Kerrygold does and I couldn’t tell a difference between the two when I cooked or baked with it.

I’ve also tried the grass-fed butter available from Aldi. It’s regularly $2.99 in my area so it’s usually much cheaper than other brands. Word on the street is that Kerrygold makes this butter for Aldi. Whatever the case, I can’t tell a difference in taste or texture between this butter with the other brands.

Now these aren’t the only brands out there. You can find many others in grocery stores around the U.S., and you can find them locally from farmers or local food shops. If you go with the local option you will probably get a better deal as you can probably buy large quantities than you could in the store.

Why I Won’t Use “Regular” Butter

The main reason I won’t use regular butter again is the ingredients. Most of these brands use natural flavors which aren’t natural unlike its namesake.

Butter is cream and sometimes salt (I prefer unsalted butter). There’s no need to add natural flavors. The actual flavor of it should come from the cow’s milk.

The other reason I won’t use this type of butter anymore is that it doesn’t have a good flavor. After eating grass-fed butter for years now when I eat “regular” butter it tastes plain. Yeah, I’m gonna be that lady. And don’t you dare bring any “fake” butters around me ’cause I’ll knock you out.

Limited Edition Clothing

Limited Edition Cover Image

Let’s All Meat latest announcement is our limited edition clothing which you can check out here.

What Is Our Limited Edition Clothing?

Our limited edition clothing are t-shirts, tank tops, long-sleeve t-shirts, or sweatshirts designed for specific events or holidays and sold for a specific amount of time. Once the timeframe ends that clothing is discontinued.

Why Only Sell Limited Edition Clothing For A Certain Timeframe?

It wouldn’t make sense to sell certain designs made for a specific holiday like Fourth of July all year long. Plus, I consider this design special for the event or holiday and only want to sell them for that particular period.

Could These Designs Come Back Later?

They could when the event or holiday comes around again. So if you missed it you would have to wait a full year to get the chance to buy it again.

Events And/Or Holidays We Will Have Special Designs For

Here’s a list, although not a definitive one:

  • Father’s Day (currently on sale)
  • Independence Day / Fourth Of July
  • Labor Day
  • Halloween
  • Veteran’s Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Hanukkah
  • Christmas
  • New Years

Porterhouse Steak, I Love You Dearly

Porterhouse Steak

My favorite steak cut is the porterhouse steak. I do love t-bone steaks too but the porterhouse cut has more of that tender, tender filet attached so it wins out. I know, I know, people love ribeye steaks. And while that cut is tasty it’s too fatty for me. I love eating a good piece of steak, including tasting and enjoying the beef flavor. Hence, why I love the porterhouse steak dearly.

Why I Love Porterhouse Steak Dearly

First off, this cut is usually sliced thick which makes it the perfect steak for grilling. There’s nothing like cutting into a thick steak after it came off the grill. The feel of your knife slicing through the thick meat, the heft you feel as you pick it up with your fork (or fingers), the bounciness of the meat, oh boy! Now I want a steak.

Second, the taste of this cut isn’t matched by any other cut. A porterhouse steak is what steak should taste like: Beefy goodness.

Finally, I love the marbling of the fat throughout the meat. To me, that’s what makes this cut of steak stand above all others. The melding of the meat and fat as it cooks.

How I Typically Cook My Porterhouse Steak

As of the past several months I got a Weber charcoal grill so I’ve been grilling my steaks. Yes, I grill any time of the year, even when it’s freezing outside. My brother is the same way. We got that trait from our grandfather who would grill almost everyday at his shop.

However, if I can’t grill my steak I will fry it up in my Lodge cast iron skillet for a few minutes on each side before placing it in the oven for a few more minutes. I eat my usually medium, however I can be off with my timing sometimes and cook the steak medium-rare. Especially if the butcher cuts the steak very thick. I don’t mind when that happens because I’ll eat medium-rare.

When it comes to seasonings I keep it simple: Salt and pepper. I know some people don’t like to put the latter on the steak until after it cooks because pepper can burn and cause a bad taste. Yet, I still put a little on there. I even like to put a little cayenne pepper on my steaks too. Finally, I don’t use any steak sauce on my steaks. I haven’t done that in years. A properly-cooked steak doesn’t need a sauce. The salt and pepper brings out the flavor of the meat which is truly delicious!

Want To Win My Heart?

Some women love flowers, while others swoon over diamonds. Neither of those impress me. If you want to win my heart then buy me a steak or treat me to a steak dinner. Or let me get double-steak at Chipotle.
