KitchenOperas: Omivore Styles

My Dear KitchenOperas Readers,

I have news… and it’s going to mean change around here.

To get right to the point: I’m eating omnivorously now.  I’ve made the change to support my own health goals, and it feels right and good for me in this moment.  I’ve loved eating vegetarian food, and I’ll still eat lots of it… I’m just adding animal products to my repertoire as well, and being grateful to the animals and farmers who make my meals possible.

So, FAIR WARNING: there will be pictures and recipes of meat and animal products on this blog going forward.  If you’re not ok with that, I totally understand.  Thank you for your loyal support over these past 5 1/2 years of vegetarian blogging.

I’m keeping my archives, which means you’ll still have access to all of my vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free recipes.  And there will be more of those to come in the future, along with my new omnivorous experiments.  I’m still eating and loving tons of veggies.

I’m truly excited for what’s to come… it’s already been an adventure eating new-to-me-foods.  I feel thoroughly spoiled by my friends and family, who are providing support, excitement, and delicious meals.

My question to you: What would you like to see on the blog in the coming months?  As I’m exploring my new options, I’m particularly interested in sustainable, local choices and delicious meals.  I’d love to know about the foods that you love that I’ve never tried!


Thanks, always, for the blog love,

    Hi!I really love your spirit, and bought your book a while ago. However, the diet didn’t fit me at all!Now I see you might be questionning the vegeterian way… I myself am omnivorous, but I take good care to eat only grass-fed meat! Yes, even the poultry and pigs are grass-fed at the farm I get them. And of course all the animals are very well treated!  It’s very important to have your meat grass-fed or else you will lack some nutrients, and you might eat some you don’t want if they are grain fed! And the only dairy I take is ghee, from grass-fed cows, which contains butyric acid and mk-4 from K2 vitamin, which is also essential! If you eat natto, you have the other essential part of the K2 vitamin, mk-7, which I take as a supplement as I avoid soy.However, as I have not eaten gluten for a while, I found out that not eating any cereals feels so much better! I learned that grains, among other things, give you a very high insulin response, worse than refined sugar! I do have some recipes with almond and coconut flour, and very occasionally a little bit of some sweet white rice flour.I really recommend you check the books ¨Wheat Belly; Total Health¨, by William Davis, full of infos about cereals among other things, and ¨Bulletproof Diet¨ too, from Dave Asprey, as well as the 2 diet books by JJ Virgin (VIrgin diet and Sugar Impact). These 3 authors don’t always agree on everything, but they do have a lot in common!Since I follow a mix of these, I feel so so much better. And it also means a lot of veggies, but almost no fruit! A tiny tiny bit of blueberries and raspberries here and there… unless you are doing any very physical activity right after.You might know about a lot of this already, I am sorry I haven’t had time to read through everything you wrote in the book and online yet!I do take a lot of supplements too, carefully chosen, as unfortunately now our food doesn’t provide as much as the soils lack nutriments.If you want more infos about what I eat, I don’t mind giving you all the details!Welcome in the omnivorous world!;-DHave a nice day!Marie-Claude
