Hi Denise, nuts and seeds I lost interest in a good long while ago. It just seemed so pointless, I would eat 10 or 13 almonds in the morning, it was more of a habit than anything, and it just wasn’t doing anything for me. The seeds I lost interest in even faster, back when I was still doing keto and clinging to my idea of variety. Back when I was also clinging to my 1 daily square of 90% dark Lindt chocolate, lol. Feels like a lifetime ago. I am a moderator, not abstainer, but I just lost interest in it all. But that’s me, this is such an individual journey. If you feel good eating those nuts and seeds then by all means, I feel grand drinking my grassfed raw milk. If the body is happy that’s what matters. I don’t know much about yeast to be honest, it’s something you take to improve absorption of food? I find the raw milk helps me to digest all food better. And I read it helps you to digest fat better. It’s intetesting.
How wonderful you have farms around you! That is such a blessing. I am lucky in that too, I live in a fairly rural area and there are farms, fields full of grazing cows and sheep:slightly_smiling_face:As to the variety of meats, I started off absolutely mad for pork. Then, one day I went off it, and didn’t like the taste of it anymore, same with chicken and fish. Now all my body appears to want is red meat, beef especially and lamb, I honestly don’t know why, but I just go with it. Red meat tastes better to me than anything else on this planet, including eggs and dairy. No other food compares. But again, that’s me, and if you love a variety of meats, fish and seafood, you go for it, follow your body:slightly_smiling_face:
I have read Mikhaila Peterson’s story and what she went through was such a tough journey to find oneself in so young. She strikes me a strong and intelligent young lady who really came out on the other side. But unless you have auto immune diseases you are attempting to heal, then the lion diet is probably not neccessary. A more relaxed carnivore might be better to include foods you are already comfortable with. I have auto immune diseases or conditions, such as roseaca (facial and occular) blepharitis, dry eye, macular degeneration, and Reynauds. I also have lipoedema and lymphedema, as well as muscle weakness and daily fatigue, not helped by the Tamoxifen. My body has been feeling so, so much better since carnivore that I hope I can over time heal all these conditions, and get off my medication even. My quality of life is already so much better. And really, these auto immune things, well there’s some research pointing them in that direction, I don’t know, - are all managable and small in the grand scheme of things. Apart from the macular degeneration. But I spoke with two doctors about it, one was convinced I had it, the other one wasn’t. It was back in my mid-twenties the first doctor diagnosed me with it. So I remain hopeful. I don’t know what your health is like Denise, but yes, listen to your body, enjoy the food that nourish you the most, life is too short not to treat our bodies like the precious gifts they are, and it’s whatever feels right to you.
