NK (High Fat Diet, Medium Protein, Low Carb) Grocery List
 
Hey all!

I thought it would be helpful to compile a list of food staples you buy while you are embracing this lifestyle change. I feel like sometimes, with this type of lifestyle in particular, it easy to get bored with your food choices because it becomes repetitive by nature.

Here are my staples:

Ground beef
Macadamia Nuts
Unsweetened Cocunut milk
Tahini
Full Fat Mayo
Eggs
BUTTER!!
Mustard
Salsa


I will update as I remember

share YOUR grocery lists!

Meat
Coconut Oil
Heavy Whipping Cream
Slap Ya Mama seasoning (hot)
Sea Salt with iodine
Bouillon

Be careful of store bought mayo. Most of it is made with soy oil - bad stuff. Avoid PUFAs.

I'm not a purist on some things like bouillon so I use McCormick. I eat BBQ pork rinds too even though they have trace amounts of sugar. In a pinch I'd eat jerky even if sugar was in it as long as the carbs were okay.

If I felt that I had everything right but I was still having trouble I'd get rid of these potential avenues of failure.

Homemade chicken broth is a possibility. Buffy posted a recipe for it that is reported to be super duper tasty. I haven't tried it yet. I'll find her post and repost it for you.

Here it is, Buffy's homemade chicken broth:

Take a 8 qt souppot, throw in a whole chicken or the parts to equal at least one chicken and fill pan with water. Put in lots of sea salt and pepper. To this I add at least 1/2 lb butter and let it simmer on the stove all day. Simmering slowly will not boil off your water, which you want to keep, if it gets a little low, add some more hot water. Then, dip out all the chicken and bones, pull that meat off and store, I put mine in bags of 4 oz and strain your broth. Put in freezer containers. It is high fat, strong, salty broth.

I use "HerbOx" bullion. I buy it by the case from amazon. No MSG. MSG can give me a headache. It does have a bunch of junk in it, but it seemed the most innocuous.

If you do go this way and can tolerate dairy, MizzCase's method of adding some HWC to create "cream of broth" is highly recommended.

So I am probably never going to make mayo...I know I need to expand horizons and get better at cooking, I'm a work in progress. Is store bought mayo really something I shouldn't be eating? Is it going to stall me? I don't tend to buy organic or grassfed stuff as much as I wish I could due to tight budget but love me some mayo on eggs...and lots of other stuff.

should i buy the mayo that says olive oil on the jar instead? i just bought one jar reg mayo....argh.

Even the OO mayo can be suspect because the olive oil is cut with PUFA oil. Pretty dang nefarious.

I can't stand mayo so we need a mayo person to recommend a good one for LC.

But to answer your larger question... A solid 'maybe'. As long as you are eating enough healthy fat and not gorging on mayo you will probably be okay. If you are relying heavily on the fat in mayo for your fat macro then it will be a problem I think.

If you are in a town of any size it should be easy to find a good one. And you can always order online if you can't find it locally.

By the way, Cheryl in our thread makes bacon grease mayo and she says it is easy to make and super excellent to eat.

well thinking about bacon AND mayo converging makes me happy so I will google that now! we have a natural grocers here where i live so what should i be looking for in a mayo? something that says it doesn't have those oils? huge thank you for your help!!

I don't like the egg-y taste of mayo and try to avoid refined soybean oil, so I've been using Vegenaise spread. It does have PUFA's but I mostly use it in small amounts in sandwiches or on a burger.

Ingredients for the soy free version: Expeller-Pressed High-Oleic Safflower Oil, Filtered Water, Brown Rice Syrup, Apple Cider Vinegar, Pea Protein, Sea Salt, Mustard Flour, Lemon Juice Concentrate.
