Let’s read together!
This cookbook isn’t just a book filled with meat-based recipes — it’s a complete guide to the Carnivore Diet and includes meal plans, tips, info, and yes, over delicious 100 recipes! There are so many recipes that I cannot wait to try… like bacon-wrapped chicken nuggets? YES, PLEASE! 😋
Let’s chat about the authors first: Maria & Craig Emmerich
Maria and Craig Emmerich, along with their two sons, have been living the keto life for the past 8+ years. Maria is the best-selling author of several nutritional guides and keto cookbooks and runs two highly successful blogs – MariaMindBodyHealth and Keto-Adapted, where she shares her keto recipes, tips, tricks, and more.
Maria and Craig are so passionate about the keto life that they even have a Keto Condo in Maui, Hawaii that you can rent for your next vacation. The condo is fully stocked with keto treats, keto cookbooks, and a local dining guide so that you can eat all the best keto foods nearby! Sign me up for that! 🏝
So what exactly is a Carnivore Diet?
The Carnivore lifestyle focuses on eating only animal products — and a LOT of them! Naturally, fat is a hugely important part of this lifestyle.
Dieters tend to approach the Carnivore Diet in one of three different ways:
- Animal products: Animal meat and by-products like fat, eggs, cheese, cream, and butter. Most avoid milk due to sugar content.
- Meat, fat, & eggs: Some individuals don’t like the way cream and cheese make them feel, so these dieters keep it simple and avoid most dairy products.
- Only meat: The true carnivore diet, with meat, fat, and water (and sometimes coffee if you just can’t part ways with caffeine).
What are the benefits of a Carnivore Diet?
The Carnivore Diet uses fats for energy just like the keto diet, which is our body and brain’s most efficient energy source. There are so many great health benefits that come with the carnivore way of eating. Here are just a few…
- Improved digestion from reduced fiber intake.
- Mental clarity from eating primarily fat and protein.
- Decreased inflammation from limiting carbs and focusing on fats.
- Faster weight loss from steady blood sugar levels.
What to expect during June’s keto book club selection:
