Is a meat-only diet boring?
I'm nine months into a carnivore diet.
And yes, I'm bored.
Here are some thoughts for dealing with boredom on a carnivore diet.
What I'm doing: I'm cooking more and working on classical cooking techniques.
For greens, I'm sticking with iceberg lettuce and romance, mainly water and benign greens that don't bother me. I then use a mix of fruits, nuts, seeds, and quality dairy to round out my salads, sauces, and side dishes.
I also have a rule for vegetables: if they aren't delicious, I don't eat them. Maybe a bite or two tops.
You no longer need to stuff your face with vegetables when you go carnivores because you know they are just a treat.
My meal yesterday was as follows:
I like salads because they are filling and have high satiety with low calories. They are also delicious when you learn how to make them correctly. Here are a few tips.
Season/dress each ingredient. If you slice some onions or tomatoes, soak them in oil and salt before adding them to the salad. Make sure your greens are dry, and use a salad spinner or paper towels to dry them. Season your greens before adding anything else with salt and maybe some peppers. Everything together with dressing by hand slowly. Taste, then adjust. Always have an acid, usually, this is in the sauce, but a squeeze of lemon or some balsamic vinegar can go a long way.
Also, a strategy I'm doing to make sure I get my protein and animal foods in is this:
I'm aiming for 50g of protein each meal, over two meals. I then want to eat this protein before anything else, so I fill up and don't overeat the other foods.
There are a few strategies for mixing it up on the carnivore diet. The video above goes into some other ideas as well.
