Yesterday, Saturday 9/3/11  was INTERNATIONAL BACON DAY!!! I posted about my celebratory meal which was my version of the “Bacon Explosion“, click here if you missed it.  Mark schweigert and I had a friendly competition to see who could make the best … and he clearly won.  However, as Mark said, […]

International Bacon DAY – Champion! :)

(Click Pictures to Enlarge)  Saturday 9/3 is International Bacon Day!!!  Woo HOO! …what’s that?  YOU DID NOT KNOW!!! … I did not either until Adrienne Harvey  told me about it… thanks ADRIENNE! Bacon specifically and pork generally was extremely important in the first year of my ‘journey’.  I relied heavily […]

Battle of the BACON BULGE!!!!



This meal was totally cooked on the Grill.  A grilled, bacon, egg and beef  MEATWICH! :) ** Remember: You can click on any picture to enlarge it. I tried, very successfully, grilling bacon not long ago (click here if you missed that post) and thought immediately about grilling the other […]

Grilled Eggs? … YES! AND beef & bacon Meatwich!

This post is more of a pictorial view than a recipe.  I know what you are thinking… So what else is new! :) When I did my lowER fat experiment  (NOT low fat … lowER fat), in an attempt to reduce fats I re-discovered my grill. I am so glad […]

Grilled, Bacon Wrapped, Chicken Livers…



The title is meant to imply that this rub would go well on anything … but Truth be told I have NOT tried this ‘rub’ with everything … I have tried it with chicken, beef steaks and fish… and I LOVE IT. Like 99% of my foods … it’s so […]

Blackened … ____ (fill in the blank with meat)

This started out being a post dedicated to GRILLED BEEF BRISKET!!!! See the picture below … I really really tried. :) But then circumstances spiraled out of control. (hyperbole much?)  :)  My gas grill began to lose it’s flame…. I had plenty of propane,  I won’t bore you with the details […]

Beef Brisket … oh my GOODNESS!

Butterflying or Spatchcocking chickens are a great way to prepare a ‘whole chicken’. Grilling a whole is diabetes friendly. This is more true if you eat all the parts, especially the fatty parts. I usually save the lean cuts for leftovers, adding butter when eating them separately. Eating a ‘whole’ chicken is […]

Grilled Butterfly Chicken




Yet another low carb, truly diabetic friendly, tasty and satiating meal. The American Diabetes Association would not approve of this meal ... because it has too much fat, too much protein and there are no 'whole grains'.

Roast and Creamed Cauliflower w/ Gravy



Growing up… we ate a lot of meat. London Broil was not a ‘cut’ that I can ever remember eating in my youth. In fact it is a cut that I never had (that I recall) until I went ‘low carb paleo’. Since my diabetes diagnosis I have become much […]

London Broil & Squash

This low carb paleo slaw is diabetes friendly. My favorite kind of foods!! Real food ingredients, avoid using store-bought mayonnaise, Tomatoes and cabbage have carbs, so use this as a side dish.

Set Up This is my mom’s chicken stew recipe … kind of. By simply substituting Coconut Flour (for Wheat Flour) and Heavy Cream (for milk) … I was able to turn a long time FAMILY favorite into a tasty primal dish. I have fond memories of Fall Chicken Stews ….. […]

Mom’s Chicken Stew is now primal. :)


1. This dish is SO EASY … if you add enough fat… real BUTTER, Animal Fats, Palm Oil or Coconut Oil. 2) The dish is easy but it’s not a slam dunk (it’s not automatic).  If you do not add enough fat … the eggs will likely stick. Good NEWS! […]

Beef & Spinach Burrito … uh huh!

This post discusses my favorite INEXPENSIVE steak, introducing the… “FLAT IRON STEAK“!!! As you can see from the picture to the right… I purchased these for $4.05 per lb. I bought 4 packages… all about a pound each.  A pound of very good steak … for less than a double […]

Flat Iron Steak & Asparagus


This Mother’s Day was a relatively easy ‘holiday meal’ to prepare. It was soooo good… my wife EVEN loved it!!! :) Menu: 1) Pork Shoulder – actually cooked this yesterday and only needed to reheat … not a bad way to prepare… I will need to remember this. Regardless, it […]

Primal and Diabetes Friendly – Mother’s Day Meal



A proper diabetes diet is truly the key to managing diabetes. Coconut flour is low carb and a nice addition to your diabetes diet.

Coconut Flour Gravy.

You should learn to 'play' with your food. This burrito is a diabetes friendly burrito and low carb paleo. Open your mind to being creative in the kitchen... and in LIVING! An omelette makes an incredibly delicious and nutritious burrito!

Low Carb Paleo Burrito


I lead with the “New York Strip” … because everyone loves da’ MEAT! … or at least I hope they do. … but honestly, the Swiss Chard stole the show.  Sooooo tasty!!! Of course copious amounts of bacon and bacon juice did not hurt the flavor at all. :)) The […]
