Anyone else with this lifestyle?

Seriously changed my life for the better drastically. No longer depressed and anxious like I was (it was severe) I feel HAPPY for the first time in years and years. My blood pressure has regulated, my pulse is normal. I feel fantastic AND lost 50 lbs.

Steak was always my fav, just didnt eat it :) I never would have dreamed of this working so well.
Do you buy beef in bulk? I go to this little farm near us that does whole, half and quarter cows.
Im not eating bacon anymore because im trying to be a better Jew. I've felt guilty.


Quoting HelloSweetie:

LOL How times change :P

I'm a steak-aholic now. And bacon.nonnomnomnom

Quoting Hunnybadgerkins:

That's funny I was vegan forever. Forever!



Quoting HelloSweetie:

I never did. In fact, I was a vegitarian most of my life. HOW- I can't fathom it now as my main food is meat :P

I don't know that I could give up the bacon. Maybe turkey bacon for you? Though I know is a ridiculously poor substitute :P

I have had a whole cow before (not at once :P) and it was the BEST MEAT I have ever had. I'd love to do it again. Finding someone to go in a cow with me would be ideal but no one in my friends/family really gives a crap about their food sources and think I'm looney for my lifestyle choice. *to which I laugh my *ss off as I drop pant sizes and get healthier by the day* :P

I didn't even think to go in on my cow with someone!! Great idea.
I get chickens and pastured eggs there too. Every week they have different veggies and fruit. Im thrilled I found out about this place.

My dad has tons of land, so I'm buying chicks next spring to raise and murder so I can eat them. I'd also like to learn how to hunt so I can provide more of my own meat.  I loathe the thought of killing an animal myself, but knowing where it came from, had a decent life, ate natural, no drugs pumped into it-levels out the guilt I think.

Awesome :) we were going to get chickens in the spring. My aunt and my cousins both keep them so they will be helpful.

I found a butcher that makes beef bacon.  It is amazing.  Crisps up just like I remember pork bacon and doesn't get tough like turkey bacon does.  :-P

Still not glatt kosher but I've never observed glatt kosher and ethical, humane treatment of the animals is more important that ritual slaughter so it's a happy thing for me.  :-)

I was totally thinking of beef bacon... actually I was going to ask you. My kids go to a private Jewish school and I realized I need to (happily) be more observant.

I went out on my first hunt last fall.  With a bow and arrow, how much more primal can you get?  LOL

Got a young-ish male pronghorn at around 35 yards; his death was quite an intimate experience, especially compared to hunting during gun season.  I think that if you hunt or raise animals for meat, that their death should be approached with sober thought and a great deal of respect for them and the earth that they grew from.

I will admit to feeling like a warrior princess for quite a few days afterwards though.  There's something very "connected" to the circles of life and death to go out and provide food for your family in such a direct way.
