If meat is your BFF, you’ve probably given the carnivore diet a try — or at least you’ve thought about it. Or, maybe you haven’t even heard of it (short version: you eat a lot of meat and not much else). In this post, I’ll give you a quick rundown of the carnivore diet plus share seven absolutely delicious carnivore-friendly recipes. These recipes are all perfect for keto, too!

What is the Carnivore Diet?

The carnivore diet is an “animal products only” diet. The carnivore diet allows for:

  • Meat (including organ meat)
  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Animal fats (such as tallow and lard)
  • Select dairy products (such as butter, cheese, and heavy cream; dairy products that contain carbs, like milk, should be excluded)

The carnivore diet excludes:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Grains
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Legumes
  • Sugar
  • Processed foods

Many on carnivore choose to also consume small amounts of spices, herbs, and coffee.
