So, I have a confession. It’s the holidays and while I’m cheating a tiny bit, I think I’m doing pretty well.
Cheats: Tiny bits of bbq sauce or Mongolian sauce with honey, a bit of honey on carnivore waffles. (Have you tried those? Here is the recipe from Ketofocus. I use the mini-waffle maker):
- 1 egg
- ½ cup ground pork rinds
- ⅓ cup mozzarella cheese
- pinch of salt
Preheat waffle maker to medium high heat.
Whisk together egg, cheese, ground pork rinds, and salt.
Pour paffle mixture into the center of the waffle iron. Close the waffle maker and let cook for 3-5 minutes or until waffle is golden brown and set.
Remove paffle from the waffle maker and serve.
So it’s debatable if honey is carnivore or not since it technically comes from an “animal” and not a plant. But it’s also high in carbs, of course.
But those are the only cheats I’ve managed in the last couple weeks. And I’m having filet and lobster in drawn butter and prime rib, but will also have some cioppino which has some tomatoes in the base and onions and all. That is more than a bit of a cheat, I guess. And I just might have a piece of cheesecake, eh? And of course, I’ll have some wine!
But considering my usual behavior, this will be pretty good. And I think acceptable.
You going to cheat?
We are getting another snow storm tomorrow so I will not be able to head out for the rest of the food and the cheese and the frog legs and all until Friday, and will put off having my hair done until Jan. 3. I’ll be blowing snow and salting tomorrow. Oh boy.

I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…
