What is the Carnivore Diet?
Have you heard about the fastest way to reset your health?
We’ve all heard how helpful elimination diets can be and see the success of keto, gluten-free, GAPS, AIP and whole30 style diets.
A carnivore diet takes these principles to the next level. The goal is to eat only the most bioavailable, easiest to digest foods.
What are these? Well, in sum, they are animal foods.
With a diet build around animal foods, we successfully avoid a myriad of toxic plant compounds that may be secretly wrecking havoc on our health.
Many people find this WOE enjoyable because carnivore diet recipes are easy to make and naturally very satiating, leading to rapid fat loss.

Ground Beef, Eggs, and Cheese
Fatty ground beef is an essential staple in my meal prep routine. It’s easy to work with, widely available, and budget-friendly.
I always have ground beef in my freezer. There are 20 grams protein, 18 grams fat, 0 fiber, 0 carbs per 4 ounces of 85% lean grass-fed ground beef. (1) This is a great protein to fat ratio for me and works to feed my whole family.
You can find more meal prep ideas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in my collection of Carnivore Ground Beef Recipes.
Another staple for low carb dieters is eggs (assuming you tolerate them). We get fresh eggs daily from our chickens and ducks.
Eggs help hold the casserole together. Without them, we would have a soupy mess. The breakfast vibe comes from using eggs, but honestly, I have no problem eating this carnivore casserole for breakfast or dinner!
Cream cheese and cream are the final ingredients in this delicious meal. Eating enough fat is important for maintaining energy levels and healthy hormone production. (2, 3) 2 tablespoons of cream cheese has 1 gram protein, 10 grams fat, and 2 gram carbs making it a great way to increase dietary fat and flavor. (4)
