I have Celiac disease, so I'm generally low carb, except now they make so many delicious gluten free snacks that it's hard not to EAT ALL THE COOKIES.

I eat mostly organic, lamb is a staple of mine since I can get it kinda cheap. I make alot of bone broth so I eat alot of soups with root veggies, not the biggest fan of leafy greens but I eat them from time to time, I like sauerkraut though and make it myself.I like carrots, potatos,lentilscabbage,radishes,broccoli,cauliflower I like salmon and oysters so I eat them as well, I consume alot of coconut oil and tallow, avocados, and butter I dont think fats bad, just depends on the source. I also eat Liver from time to time. Fruits I eat them whenever but since I don't crave sweet things I don't really eat them a whole lot If I do it's pears, mangos, peaches, berries, and oranges.

As for supplements I take krill oil since our brain are made up of a lot of DHA also since we are still growing till were about 25 so I want to make sure my brain is properly developing since I don't eat a lot of seafood.

Always been curious as to what lamb tastes like. My mom has a funk about lamb for some reason so we never had it at home. I've never tried it. I'm guessing it must be good, since a good portion of the world likes it. How would you describe the flavor?

It's hard to say exactly in comparison to beef since I haven't eaten beef in quite awhile but I woud say it slightly sweeter and thus a lighter meat mild would be a better way to describe it. but it might be the breed I eat, depending on the breed of the lamb can also affect the flavor. the breed I eat is Dorper Lamb which is a south African breed which I hear is not as strong as the others.

Oh, thanks! I've heard older lamb has a stronger flavor than younger, but both have a game-y taste to them. Which is fine by me. I mean, I eat squirrel, for Pete's sake. If I can handle that, I should be able to handle lamb. I've just always been afraid of it, since mom put the fear of God into me about it. But I should try it.

You should well at least the younger lamb which is the only one I've tasted there's nothing to be afraid of.

I'll give it a try. I'm up for something new, and I survived China. I know I ate things there that I didn't know what they were, and it's probably for the best my friends couldn't (or conveniently, wouldn't) tell me what was in it.

About 3 years ago, I started reacting to corn products, turned out to be a cross reaction. I went gluten and corn free for a few months and then reintroduced the corn while remaining gluten free. After about 6 months gluten-free I noticed things that used to be problems for me were going away, like I used to get headaches/migraines almost every day, now I only get them every once in a while.

I think I supplement pretty well,
Orange Triad Multivitamin which has joint support, digestive support, and your everyday essentials
Animal Pak Omega packet, like a bunch of different fish oil capsules
Caffeine pills
Creatine
Preworkout
Protein powder (I like Trutein)

Oats in the morning, always, with a scoop of protein powder

I try to hit a gram of protein per pound of bodyweight while staying around the 2500-3000 cal range

I have to eat gluten and dairy free because the lab tests done when I was ill some years back showed my intestines were atrophied and my immune system was attacking dairy, so I've had to eat this way, not that I want to. I eat meat, gluten free grains, nuts, seeds, veggies, some fruit, and legumes. I like potatoes. Something good that came out of eating this way is that I make a lot more meals, I read every label, I don't eat preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. I may have some Skittles once a year, but that's about it.

I eat foods no one around me has heard of like spirulina, mung bean noodles, and garbanzo bean flour (I make pancakes out of it).

I take B complex for anxiety, D3 and an occasional amino acid for my gut, digestive enzymes as needed, and omega 3 for anti inflammatory. I have a full food multi if I feel I've eaten poorly for a while. I take magnesium powder during anxiety attacks.

I'm a vegetarian, so no meat, no fish, no animals at all. I also don't drink milk because I just find it really disgusting. I take a multivitamin daily, and drinks loads of water. I would have a pretty healthy diet if it wasn't for the fact that I am constantly eating candy and cake :/

Wouldn't that technically make you a vegan, and not a vegetarian? My understanding is that vegans have no meat whatsoever, be it an egg, steak, chops, etc.

Vegetarians, as I understand it, are acceptable to things like eggs and even fish, in some cases. I'm not trying to be a *ick here, I'm just pointing some things out.
