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 built around animal foods, we successfully avoid a myriad of toxic plant compounds that may be secretly wreaking 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)

  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese softened
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
  • Lightly brown meat in a skillet over medium heat.
    1 pound ground beef
  • Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Add the cream, cream cheese, and salt. Mix well to combine. Add meat and stir well.

Notes

I only have access to lean meat and therefore, usually, add 1/2 tbsp cooking fat before browning the beef. If your ground beef is sufficiently fatty, you don’t need additional cooking fat.

    I’ve been following a carnivore woe, but I have a problem eating enough protein. Eating 1/4 piece of this casserole will provide me with at least 30g. I used an extra egg and a handful of shredded cheddar. Other than that, followed directions as written. Bonus – I actually like it straight from the fridge 😊 Thanks for this recipe.

    What is the serving size for this? How many pieces do you eat for a meal? I made this and it was good, kind of greasy from the ground beef fat. I’m not used to to buying the 80/20.

    • Kaya, you can make this recipe dairy-free by omitting the cream and cream cheese, and adding 2 tbsp of lard, tallow, or other fat of your choice instead. You could also get away without any added fat, but it’s nice for extra flavor, nutrition, and producing a moist texture. Hope this helps! Enjoy!

    Excellent taste. Doubled recipe. Didnt have cream cheese tonight. Substituted 2 cups of shredded. cheddar cheese. Seasoned with salt, ground garlic and ground onion. My wife doesn’t like pepper. Great consistency.
