My Carnivore Journey So Far

It’s been a little over a week. I’m down -8 lbs and I feel AMAZING! First couple days I did have detox headache but it’s gone now. So far so good. I no longer have sugar cravings like I did. My brain fog is completely gone and I have even more energy then I did before!

If you decide to try it just know that carnivores are doing the exact opposite of all mainstream nutritional recommendations so get ready to get some heat from people 🙂

If you would like to learn more about it this is a great resource You can also #carnivore on insta or fb and you will find tons of groups to join and read endless testimonials. I will keep you posted on my journey but so far I feel great and my hubby joined me yesterday as well 🙂 We will keep track of his progress as well.

Have a wonderful day!

Super Easy Egg Salad

I LOVE a good egg salad. I’m very picky what’s in it so I love to make my own. Here is a super easy recipe I use.


8 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
1/3 c. mayonnaise
2 tsp. whole grain mustard
1/2 stalk of chopped celery, minced
2 tbsp. finely chopped chives


* First off you need to boil your eggs. I put them in my Air Fryer at 270 degrees for 15 min and BAM! Beautiful “boiled” eggs!

* Roughly chop hard-boiled eggs and transfer to a medium bowl. Mash slightly with a fork to break up yolks.
* Add mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, celery and chives and mix until evenly combined. Season with salt and pepper.

Simple Wild Shrimp Recipe!

 I love shrimp, always have. There is so many amazing recipes out there but I like to keep mine very simple 🙂 I like things to be easy and colorful. I want to share my easy peasy recipe that I can make in under 5 min 🙂


  • wild shrimp is best
  • salt
  • pepper
  • lime or lime juice
  • garlic
  • pepper flakes
  • parsley

All I do is remove the shrimp the night before from the freezer and place it in the fridge. Next morning I just simply rinse it off and put it in a ziplock bag to marinate. For my marinade I use salt, pepper and lime juice. Just a squeeze of 1/2 a lime will do 🙂 That’s it. I will let it marinade in the fridge all day until it’s time for dinner.


Heat olive oil or butter in a heavy skillet over high heat until its hot. Place shrimp in an even layer on the bottom of the pan and cook for 1 minute without stirring.

Stir in garlic and red pepper flakes (optional) cook and stir 1 minute. Feel free to add some more lime juice and about 1 tbs of fresh or dried parsley.

Cook additional 1 minute 🙂 Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl. Serve immediately 🙂
