  • don't really like meat - any recs?

    Hi I have read so much on the benefits of eating primal and I really want to commit to a change of lifestyle and all the benefits but taste wise... I don't really like meat. Any tips or ideas? For some reason I don't mind fish and types of mince. Anyone else like me?

    Shellfish and mollusks are great. Eggs, cheese and other quality grass fed dairy. Gelatin: make homemade jello or fruit gummies. You don't really have to eat much meat to get quality protein. These alternatives are just fine.

      Thanks for your reply. I have been lurking on this forum for a long time and people seem to rave on about different types of meat... which I respect as everyone has different taste buds but for me it just wasn't working.

          Mince is what we in the States call ground beef, right? That's cool. I love ground meats and have been doing my own in the food processor for a few months. In addition to all the suggestions above, go for grass fed mince (which I think is very available in Australia?). It's such an easy and versatile meat. From additions to other dishes to meatloaves, burgers, etc. Also, if available, ground lamb is luscious. Ground pork, if you can find a healthy source comes by way of sausage, or in bulk. I'm not a fan of ground poultry because the color of it gives me the schkeves, but it's certainly a useable meat.

          There's nothing that says you have to eat just steaks, chops, etc. Ground meats are fine. Some people worry that ground meats come from different animals, while a steak comes from just one. That's a personal thing and you can decide that for yourself of course.

          Once you get past all of that, we'll tell you about the benefits of offal. Mince today, bison liver tomorrow!

              Nothing wrong with mince. Currently I'm eating mine fried in CO with sliced mushroom and onions and with added diced offal. Minced pork I can eat just as is. Haven't yet tried the minced turkey I've got.

              How are you with eggs as they're versatile and another good source of nutrition?

                Yeah my wife is the same way. She'll eat eggs, chicken and pork and usually prefers the chicken and pork disguised somehow - ground up and shaped into burgers, sausages and such. We eat a lot of chicken. sometimes I think if I eat any more chicken I'm gonna grow feathers....

                  Eggs, sardines, and Greek yogurt are my go-tos when I'm just not in the mood for meat.

                    Yep. This is great advice.

                    I'd throw in some red-meat and organ-meat once in a while if you can stand it, but it's no crime if you don't.

                      can't do the amounts of meat and fat people seem to do on here either.
                      i do small portions of 50 to 100 g once or twice a day and have fish or veggie only days couple times a week.

                        Are you adverse to bacon too? It could be a great "starter" meat, so to speak.

                          Thanks so much for the responses and I feel so much better about embarking on this change of life style. I am a fan of bacon (yes!) and am glad on all the seafood recs. Yes ground beef is mine meat. I will also include some of the other types of meat once in a while as well. Once again thanks for the tips much appreciated.

                            are you male or female? if female, i'd suggest doing a little food tracking somewhere like cronometer to be sure you are consuming enough iron if you are averse to red meat.

                            on a personal note, when i ate lots of grains, i never much cared for red meat. these days it's a totally different thing for me.
                            As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
