Hi everyone! Happy New Year!!! 2019. Cray.
I’ve made this post because it’s World Carnivore Month this January. If you’re looking to give the diet a try, there’s a lot of support out there on social media so why not now! Joe Rogan is even apparently finally giving it a go! Just remember, if you’re trying to get rid of depression or an autoimmune disorder, it’s best to go all meat instead of keeping eggs and dairy. As you guys know, I think dairy is evil too.
I’ve made a list of all the cooking utensils (and a couple of other products) that I use. This post contains affiliate links. That being said, I literally use all of these products. They’re super helpful for starting a heavy meat diet (or all meat diet). I’ve put in uppercase letters the items I think are super necessary, but I do use most things on this list. The main links are for Amazon.com, but I’ve included the Canadian link at the end of each description.
Aluminum so they don’t peel. Good to have both sizes (get a half sheet and a quarter sheet). The half sheet is good for chicken wings and the quarter sheet is good for smaller roasts if you’re not cooking for many people. Great with the above Silpat trays. (Canadian link here).
Totally necessary if you cook steak, or really anything. Hands down my favourite way to cook anything… Other than bbq-ing. NEVER clean them with soap. I only cook beef in one of mine and I have another for other foods if I’m cooking for anyone else. I’m not even kidding, when I travel and stay in AirBnB’s I go out and buy one of these so I don’t have to use crappy pans. Upgrading AirBnB cooking utensils all day every day. Wash them with super hot water before use because they’ve been seasoned with God knows what already. (Canadian link here).
I started using these in September and they’re worth it. I use one of these with really hot water to clean the pans. If you use soap, food will stick to the pan and it will be very very annoying. Don’t use soap. Just use one of these. (Canadian link here).
I use these guys. I absolutely love them. I use the Santoku 7″ knife, and the 4″ paring knife (Canadian link here).
Worth it if you only drink water. And even if you drink other things. You can make the water ridiculously bubbly, especially if you use super cold water. I’ve linked to the cheaper Soda Stream. It honestly works better than the fancier one. (Canadian link here).
Great for making jerky. Literally get round roast, have the butcher slice it as thin as they can, cover it in salt and lay it in here for 9 hours. Easy peasy. You can get a cheap one and it works absolutely fine. Eat it with tallow for some added fat and it’s amazing. I have a more expensive one that’s larger and it definitely doesn’t work any better than the cheap smaller ones. (Canadian link here).
Great for bone broths and soups and roasts. Make sure you get one that has a timer, some don’t and then it’s annoying. (Canadian link here).
Absolutely necessary for nailing a roast. Literally, put the roast on the tray (with or without the Silpat), stick the thermometer in (make sure it’s in the middle of the roast), preheat the oven to 400 degrees and wait until the thermometer beeps. 126 degrees is pretty good for medium rare. Boom, perfect roast. (Canadian link here).
Worth it because you can keep meat fresh (and stop it from ageing – I hate aged meat) for a lot longer. Normally my meat starts changing the way it tastes after about 2.5 days in the fridge, and with the vacuum sealer, it easily takes 4 days. It also stops freezer burn if you freeze it. That’s fewer trips to the store. It can be used for other foods too but for meat it’s great. It’s best to buy a more expensive one of these. I started out with a cheap one and it was annoying to use. (Canadian vacuum sealer link – cheaper than Amazon so I didn’t link to Amazon).
Non-Stick Silpat Trays (US Link) If you can eat chicken these are great. I don’t use them anymore because I don’t eat chicken. If you make chicken wings (ignore the turmeric!) though, these are super handy. I’d recommend hand washing them because sometimes if you put them in the dishwasher you can taste the soap. Not good when you’re avoiding poisons. Or rinse them after you put them in the dishwasher. I’d purchase a big one and a small one for different tray sizes. I DO NOT recommend the Amazon versions even though they’re cheaper. They made my food taste like plastic, and broke down really quickly. Not a good sign. (Canadian link here).
Tupperware for leftover meat bits:
These are my favourite. They’re glass. (Canadian link here – might be cheaper at Canadian Tire).
Best tasting salt out there. As soon as I get this pesky microbiome transplant I’ll be back at the salt, probably. (Canadian link here).
These are basically all the products in my kitchen…
Then there are other products I use:
Redmond Spearmint Toothpaste (US Link)
The other flavours have xylitol and so I go for the one with the least amount of ingredients. The ingredients in this toothpaste are wonderful for people avoiding toothpaste. Honestly on this diet I don’t even know if I’d have to brush my teeth… But I do. For now. I also buy their powder version for when I travel. I don’t have a Canadian link. It’s worth a search around though.
This is the only thing I’m really not afraid to slather all over my lips. I use it for any dry skin and for my lips basically every night. I love it. It’s made out of pure lanolin, and I could probably eat it without reacting. It’s marketed for cracked nipples because it’s safe for babies to ingest. Safe for babies, safe for me. I buy it at Shoppers Drugmart in Canada, but Amazon.ca has it too. I do wear lipstick, but I take it off before I eat, I’m pretty careful. I don’t wear lip-gloss, I use lanolin.
I use these on my daughter, and to remove my makeup. Basically made up of only water. You can get them at Walmart in Canada, and in America you can obviously use Amazon.
Other than that my kitchen is empty!
Hope everyone’s holidays went splendidly!
please note well. sodastream is manufactured in the Palestinian occupied territories by Israeli occupiers.
please note well. Do not buy clothing from Amazon unless you don’t mind having bed bugs which are found on most returns. This information comes from Amazon employees. Jeff Bezos has crushed more small mom and pop operations than John D Rockefeller did with his oil monopoly..
I know you have been searching about nutrition for years, but I don’t know how much deep you have gone.
Apart from the usual ones, have you ever visited a plant based doctor?
I mean, I believe that doing tests all by yourself have confused the heck out of you and maybe that lead you believe the meat is good for you.
What if the meat causes a problem that leads your body to have other foods’ allergies?
Have you ever considered that?
My view about the human body (which is based on the view of many scientists) is this..
Humans are biologically herbivores (I can bring you clues and stats about that), so our body doesn’t accept animal products.
Another thing about our body, which is amazing, is that it can fix its own problems, BUT you have to bring the body to the perfect condition and you reach that condition with the right diets, the right psychological state and the right physical state (exercise).
Sometimes a serious problem could need help from medicine, but the human body is capable of resolving most of the known problems, so you firstly need to reach the best condition and then see if medicine is necessary.
I’m not saying you should throw everything you know to the bin.
I just think you should listen to all the sides, so you could see the whole picture and then decide your opinion.
So, please, search and find a plant based doctor in your area (funny fact there is a search engine for that) and have just a talk with him. If you don’t like what he is saying, fine.
Or maybe you could listen to some of them through videos.
I can’t post the link, so google “18 Vegan Doctors who Drive the Plant-Based Movement”.
Michael Greger, MD, has shared very very much information from his youtube channel.
The only thing I’m asking is just ‘research’.
This is a dead end, a plant based diet is a recipe for disease
You don’t know what you’re talking about.
Let her just talk with a doctor and experiment for herself.
i was sicker than you can imagine, i was also a vegan for 2 years during that time, i visited multiple doctors , was hospitalized twice and tried every version of the plant based diet, every ‘cure’, ‘cleanse’ and ‘supplement’, i even did fecal transplants, none of that worked.
the beef diet was my last option, if that wouldn’t work i would have to end my life, luckily it worked.
now what did you say about plant based??? please take your ‘advice’ somewhere else
“Multiple doctors” doesn’t mean you tried every possible solution.
There is no magical thing meat has that saved you.
You are just avoiding the foods that you can’t digest or that make you sick.
And if those foods are the vegetables, then it’s about another problem you have to fix in your body (possibly about your gut) so that you can eat and live on a plant based diet.
Eating meat won’t resolve the problem and you are just rescheduling your death by 10-20 years (cancer or heart disease).
You should really just inform yourself.
Try plant based doctors.
You don’t get it, no doctor could help me, i’ve tried literally every possible thing, tell me what i haven’t tried?
even if i die in 10 years from heart disease i’ll still have lived a normal life for 10 years instead of suffering 24/7 in pure agony for 50 years, do you not see how that is better?
and yes maybe the meat doesn’t heal it, but as long as i avoid other foods i feel good, so i’ll just stick with that, i have no desire for other food.
Meat heals intestinal permeability. It doesn’t make you less sensitive though. Keep doing what makes you feel good.
yeah no way i’m ever eating anything else. what does it mean that it heals intestinal permeability?
Have you considered that perhaps rendered fat is the cause of your digestive troubles? I went to strict raw beef only because my digestion wasn’t happy with cooked meat, i also feel less dehydrated with raw beef. YMMV
Mikhaila have you found that people treat you differently after they know you used to have serious depression? I find it really annoying because it’s no different from having cancer or another disease but they treat you like you’re crazy.
maybe i’m projecting this onto these people by worrying about this, but it’s something that bothers me.. one of my old friends cut all contact after he visited me when i was in a mental hospital (where they had no clue how to treat it obviously).
maybe i feel this way because i’m still not 100% better?
You mention that your kitchen is empty aside from those things. What are your plans for when your daughter is older? We have three kids and I’m just not sure what it’s going to take managing their food while going all meat myself.
