Embracing Meat ~ He who eats Meat eats to the Lord

Embracing Meat

Meat – with a focus on incorporating more organ meat and offal – is a paleo mainstay. The plan also encourages shellfish; a large variety of vegetables; some fruit; fats including fatty fish and coconut oil; probiotic foods and glycine-rich foods like bone broth.
Cutting legumes and starches reduces excessive blood sugar fluctuations. We don't realize that bad bacteria in your gut thrives and eats off of sugar....thus, overgrowth of bacteria, especially yeast, can stimulate inflammation in susceptible people.

In previous posts and current ones, meat has been the main component in meals. Sides are usually, potatoes, root vegetables or pasta. Very few salads and raw vegetables are suggested simply because of the digestion aspect; such roughage is more likely to cause intestinal problems for some people which is mostly due to the fact that they contain insoluble fiber. Moreover, for anyone concerned with sugars and weight gain, let it be known that all vegetables contain sugar of differing amounts.

The best advice is always to know your own body. We just don't listen closely or if we do, we don't want to pay attention to what we are hearing. If your body tells you not to eat something, then don't. The mind often says 'yes' when the body says 'no'. And, visa versa. Listening to your body is the key. It takes years for some people, or a trip to the emergency room before they admit that did not listen to their body. Listen and live well!

In the Bible, we can read "One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not, and the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him. ... He who eats meat eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God...None of us lives to himself... If we live, we live to the Lord". Romans 14: 2-8
