Eat Meat, Plants Optional and Keep It SIMPLE!!!
We have a Facebook Group ~ Ancestral Eating/Paleo 30-Day Diet Challenge which was named as a result of posting The 30-Day Challenge on LivingYourTrueNature ~ which was named, in part, as a result of having read Your Personal Paleo Code, by Chris Kresser. This was the official commencement back to an animal-based diet that we began one year ago. Our initial transition involved replacing the whole grains and beans in our diet with some animal flesh foods (meats), and continuing with our dark leafy greens, some vegetables, nuts and fruits. Our diet went from 'grains, greens, and beans' to 'meats and sweets' ~ sweets being the fruit, including dried fruits like prunes, some raisins, and dates.
When we first began to incorporate animal foods into our diet, we still consumed a fairly large amount of plant foods, still believing they were an essential component to a 'healthy' diet. You can see a sampling of our meals pictured below. Interestingly, we noticed that when we ate very simply, just some fatty meat, possibly followed by a little half and half in a hot tea, coffee, or our Instant Chicory 'Coffee' we felt our best. In fact, we felt like we were on a high, we felt so good!
