Right, can't beat knowing where your eggs came from. It's not THAT hard to find local pasture raised eggs...even if you live in "the city".

Are you proud that you just ate something you know is "fake"

Not even close to healthy!

I love duck eggs too.
Nope I can't tell the difference, and neither can the colonel.

I make my own spicy seasonings. The one I use the most of is my habanero, Serrano, jalapeño blend. I dry the peppers, break them into small chunks and put them in a seasoning grinder. You get the best flavor if you hang dry them but you can use the oven or dehydrator if you are in a hurry.

My healthy meals vary - I hardly use recipes anymore but I have a good portion of fat, protein and plant based carbs at every meal. My fats include but are not limited to coconut oil, grass fed butter/ghee, animal fats from properly raised animals (i.e. rendered lard from local hog), whole nuts (most the time properly soaked and dried). My protiens are any local, pastured, or properly raised meats, lots of fish and seafoods, not just the lean cuts either, as well as vegetables high in protein (although properly raised animals are some of the very few sources of complete proteins). My carbs do NOT typically come from grains but from sweet potatoes, squashes and lots and lota of other high carb fruits and vegetables.

Our plates at dinner are 1/2 -3/4 filled with several veggies and then a smaller portion of a protein. We're pretty good at rotating fish/seafood in every couple meals I prepare (we eat a lot of leftovers to cut down on cook time). Once I get into soaking grains I will include some into our meals again - but if grains are not properly prepared I do not believe they have a positive effect on our bodies, digestive system and gut (which leads to all sorts of issues from joint pain to neurological).

Some of my typical snacks include home made nut and seed trail mix/granola (with no oats), smoked oysters, raw saurkraut and kimchi (also goes great with eggs), homemade bone broths that have so much gelatin in them it's just filing, hard boiled farm fresh eggs, homemade liver pate on celery or just a spoonful. And, my morning coffee is called "bulletproof" coffee with a bit of coconut oil, ghee, and a couple drops of vanilla stevia blended together - that helps hold me over.

I don't ALWAYS eat "perfect" by my ideal definition but when I do have a meal with grains (I still do love pasta or tortilla chips from time to time) it sometimes tastes good, but doesn't always feel good but...I don't mentally beat myself up over it.

We have maintained healthy weights (mine has not changed but didn't need to and Bills is a touch lower) and we both lowered body fat % for about a year eating like this, with out changing either of our work out routines really. Both of our cholesterol numbers are healthy - where as before they were a bit high when we were eating more vegetarian like with limited fats and lots of grains. But it's not all about the number on the scale, but our over all health. I have not been sick in a long time and overall have a lot of energy and all of my vitamin and mineral levels are in the normal ranges, and I don't take synthetic vitamins.

When I used to do the low carb BS, I used to make "healthy" pizzas. But, I've cut out dairy so I don't eat them anymore, but for some of you this may help get your pizza craving fix.

1 whole wheat tortilla burrito size
Pizza sauce
Cheese
Turkey pepperoni, or any other toppings you would like

Pre-heat oven to about 350 or 400 depending on if you have a gas oven or electric oven.

Place tortilla with all your toppings on a cookie sheet and stick it in the oven.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes depending on what crispiness level you prefer.

Stuff your inner fat kid with pizza.

I was really bummed because I had always heard how much better farm eggs are better over store eggs. The difference was huge with the beef and pork I buy. I only buy beef and pork from another coworker who has a small scale organic farm operation. But the eggs...nothing except color

You'll have to try duck eggs sometime, we get them occasionally from someone in South Lyon, but our soon to be new neighbor has ducks and I'm hoping to talk to him about getting some from time to time.

Probably not anytime soon after seeing some of the google images.

I like my eggs unfertilized.

There is a big difference between the regular eggs and the "organic free range" eggs to me. Normal eggs act like draino for my digestive system. Usually only takes 30-40 minutes before I'm running to the bathroom. Don't have that problem at all with the brown eggs.

I'm guessing it's some sort of hormone they use in the chickens in this region. They have the same effect on my Dad. I rediscovered eggs when I moved to Texas and didn't have a single problem with them the 5+ years I lived there. Once I moved back to Michigan I couldn't eat the regular eggs again.

Also I would like to say because of friends like Kerry I have ventured into trying vegetarian dishes and attempting to follow her lead in staying away from processed foods. It is very difficult with a wife and kids who fight and shut you down though
are you serious? your wife was hammering me about stuff like that, using Hunt's ketchup instead of Heinz because Hunts does not use high fructose corn syrup, and never eating hot dogs or other processed foods, she was killing me with this stuff, for like an hours she wouldn't let up. LOL

Are you serious?

You are:
A) Probably not consuming enough calories.
B) Drinking a shake twice a day.
C) Probably not getting much exercise.


I eat almost 4,000 calories a day and I have dropped my percent body fat from 23-12% since january 1st. I have lost over 16lbs of fat and added 7lbs of lean body weight.

Eat real food + exercise (run, ride a bike, lift some weights, get your heart rate up) = lose weight.
