Gluten is completely off-limits. A crumb or cross-contaminated spoon is way too much for me to handle. Soy is OK, I can tolerate it so long as it isn’t a lot of protein isolate like the type you find in vegan meat & cheese imitations. I’m not a big fan of beans, either.
This brings me to tonight’s dinner. Just like the title says: chuck-eye steak wrapped in maple bacon, covered in melted mozzarella cheese and dunked in BBQ sauce. Yeah.
Other than a side of steamed broccoli and cauliflower, it was a carnivore’s feast. I’m not trying to say its good for me or not I don’t know. I do know that I don’t get the pains that accompany various vegetables and grains like wheat. I know I can eat about two pounds of beef and just a few green, leafy vegetables and feel pretty darn good.
Unfortunately, cholesterol can be a problem even when you’re at a low weight. I’m sure someday I’ll wish I had thought of that earlier… For now, my high meat, high fat diet has brought me down to the lowest weight I’ve been in 10 years – I have more energy and I need less sleep – and I can thank being gluten-free!
