Grass Fed Beef

Are you a meat eater? 

Until recently I was pretty much an exclusive herbivore. :p Now I'm a herbivore turned carnivore. {Waah- that sounds craaazy to say!} 

I still eat lots of high quality fresh foods but after an almost 2 year meat break (just here and there) I'm trying to be more balanced, for me. 

Of late- it's becoming more obvious to me that no one diet is right for everyone! You really have to figure out what works for you and- listen to your body. (Check out the 90/10 diet to learn more.)

I did the raw thing for a while and my nails started breaking and although I felt amazing in some respects, overall my body was not happy. 

So, what that- I'm trying to add occasional, high quality meat sources back into my diet. =)

I'd love to hear what your opinion is on meat? Do you eat it or not? Why? :-) 

And, as a workout update- yesterday I hit it with weights and some cardio! Planning on heading out for a run this evening. Are you working out this week?

I've been eating more of a vegetarian diet lately but I haven't 100% cut out meat. Like you, I'm trying to make the best choices for my body. I know I feel great when I eat better more fruits and veggies but there's just some times when a steak sounds really good.

I'm the same as you - I don't cut anything out, but I don't eat meat every day either. :)

I agree no one diet works for everyone! I love meat. I won't give it up! I am reading Jillian Michael's newest book and in there she talks about having more of a balance then trying to be all out (insert diet here). I agree with that. I don't mine eating certain ways (i.e vegan, raw foods, paleo) but I'm not giving up anything!

I eat meat on a daily basis. I try the whole high protein low carb diet and that works really well for me. I also run 3 days a week and do crossfit 3 days a week. Love going to the gym or just hitting the pavement for a refreshing run.
