One of my pet peeves that I get from the newbies in the carnivore kingdom is this reoccurring question: “What can I eat on the carnivore diet?”
Normally it wouldn’t bug me, but these darn kiddos on carnivore Facebook groups and on Twitter always ask this after their question has been answered. They usually then further prod with “You mean you can’t have ANY vegetables?”
YES. What part of “meat and water” do you not understand? What do you think the definition of “carnivore” is?
Because I am a true carnivore and lover of animal products, this post is intended for those who are first getting their feet wet in their research to the carnivore lifestyle. This is an average grocery haul for myself with this way of life. I consider myself frugal so I always GO FOR THE DEALS, KIDS!
YUMMY. $54 for about 7-8 days of eating. By the way my younglings, that is less than $10 a day for those of you who are intellectually impaired.
A family pack of chicken wings. 1.2 lbs of chuck eye steak. An 8 oz. New York Strip. A 14 oz. salmon fillet. 7.2 lbs of ground beef. 24 eggs. 20 links of sausage.
Some of y’allz might be asking how I got all this for only $54. Fortunately, I live in the region on Earth that is densely populated by various Hy-Vee stores, the finest grocer since the dawn of man. Those 1 lb. ground beef rolls were on sale for $1.78 / each. Talk about a loss leader!
I couldn’t resist those darling chuck eye steaks so I fried them in butter quick and ate them all in probably under two minutes.
The most cost effective meal I’ve found is a dozen eggs with a pound of ground beef. Enough caloric content for an entire day for under $3!
Nutritionally perfect food for cheap. While all of your friends are sucking down $8 kale smoothies, almond flour peanut butter cups, and cauliflower pizza. What a joke!
Mr. Cool Carnivore recommends eating actual food. Comparison shopping is where it’s at. Save money by searching for the dizzeals, folks.
