Earlier this week our family attended a two-day all day church conference, and I knew I needed to have food on hand to stick to my meaty way of eating!
We all like tips, right? Here are my tips for what I packed to be ready, as well as what I ate from the hotel lobby. For general info, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express.
What I packed:
- Leftover hamburger patties, 1/3# each
- 2 Ribeyes (12 oz each)
- microwavable bacon 🥓
- Frigo brand beef and cheese sticks
- Epic brand beef, venison, chicken, and salmon jerky
- 8 pats of butter
What I got from the breakfast buffet:
- butter (pats and pats!)
- pork sausage patties and links
- hard boiled eggs
I can't forget Redmond's Real Salt!
I ended up the two days with a Ribeye and a lot of the jerky, as well as most of the butter.
In another post, I'll tell you where and what I ate so you can see how this all shook out over the two days.
If you're like me, you're buying things covering your eyes with one hand, and paying with the other. It's painful right now! And the biggest complaint I hear is that the Carnivore Diet must be SOOOOO expensive!
You know what's weird? It's not!
Six months ago, I was budgeting $1200 per month for a family of 4. Now, all of us are migrating to a proper human diet (thank you, Dr. Berry, for the prompting and the name), and our outlay for food is dropping!
Well, this is not all encompassing, but here's a start. Add your observations in the comments!
- the ready made foods cost a lot but don't fill you up
- meat and eggs satisfy you better and supply nutrition better than processed foods
- fruit and vegetable prices are rising and they go bad quickly
I only eat 4 items and I can predict how much meat to buy based on that. I eat a pound to 1.5# meat total, daily.
In this video I show you cost saving tips I'm using right now to afford the Carnivore Diet and feel like I'm eating like a queen. Seriously? Steak, eggs, and butter all day? Yes, please, and thank you!
What cost saving tips can you share with others here on getting groceries on the Carnivore Diet?

I did this video at the end of a trip! I was super frustrated by my blood sugar levels, but I had given in a little too much on the wine and very minute amounts of other snacks. I was pretty frustrated, and knew that I was the only one able to truly manage my willpower. I really wanted you to know that to truly make an impact I have to commit each meal to my awesome blood sugar levels for my health and for my family.
It was a valley, probably not the lowest I've been, but I was processing taking responsibility for my choices. After all, I am an adult. Even so, I don't believe in being too hard on myself or anyone else.

My postal worker just paid me the biggest compliment ever!
Postal Worker: Hey beautiful!
Me: (oh, she’s talking to me!) Hey there!
PW: You have lost a lot of weight! Are you OK?
Me: (why do we think people aren’t OK when they’ve lost weight?) Thanks!
PW: I hadn’t seen you in a while! I used to see you walking all the time and here you are! You look
Me: Thanks! I am eating a lot of protein – I put myself on an extreme elimination diet and I actually
haven’t felt better in a long time!
PW: Well, you look great! I’m glad you feel great too!
Gosh, I am just on cloud 9, still! What a compliment! I know I feel great, and I know I’m more muscular
now than before! I got kinda squishy before. Remember – I think I was the poster child for “skinny fat”
but I also know I got up to pregnancy weight when I wasn’t pregnant! I definitely had a lot of
inflammation that I feel so good having let go of.
