Alright Paloebird. I finally made your pate recipe and can't wait to try it with my lunch and dinner today. I didn't have any herb's and spices, which will make a difference. I also used the liver I froze from last week, so it's not a fresh as I'd like it to be....fresh liver is a must. Guess this is just a process of learning. Thank you!!!
I attached a pic the nutritional content that I created in my calorie counting program. The recipe is named in honor of you. Thought you'd get a kick out of it.

BTW, how has reducing your meds been going? I'm slowly going through your second journal, around pg 11. I like how you're using different sources of meat to fill your nutritional needs. Fascinating. Great stuff. I love the experiment.
You could write a book so easily with your experiences, recipes, and your thought process behind your recipes. I read one of your posts where you're using bone broth as a base for a recipe (sorry can't recall it exactly) and you made a curry as well. So I thought what a great idea to use the bone broth and mix curry powder to make a sauce. Yummy and finally something a little different from my ground beef and salad.
Anyways, hope you're doing well.
Lunch: 1:00 pm
4.15 oz Wild Sockeye Salmon, 1/2 serving Paleobird Pate, 4 oz Mixed Green Salad, 1 cup Bone Broth, 2 oz Avocado, 1 Tbsp EVOO & EVCO, .75 Tbsp MCT Oil, 1/2 Tsp Organic Ghee, 25 grams lemon juice
Carbs: 11.7 (6.5 net carbs)
Dinner: 4:30 pm
4.25 oz Wild Sockeye Salmon, 4 oz 80% Grass Fed Beef, 3 oz Mixed Green Salad, 1 Tbsp EVOO and EVCO, 1 tsp Ghee, 1 Tbsp ACV
Carbs: 1.9 (1 net carb)
Fats: 150 (75.7%)
Protein: 95 (21.3%)
Carbs: 13.6 (3%)
The meds are holding steady at 25% down with no seizure problems. I'm going to hold there a while and then maybe reduce the dose a bit more.
I'm doing this milk thing right now just for the sake of experimentation. I don't know if this is going to be great or get tossed on the scrapheap of ideas found on the internet that weren't that great IRL. We shall see. The carb content of it is higher than I would normally eat but I think the low level of overall calories is keeping me in ketosis.
I just ordered some more exotic meats like yak and camel and alligator. It is fun to mix it up.
I use bone broth as the basis of a lot of my recipes and use it as a fat/moisture source to cook things like steaks in. That curry sounds delicious.
No plans to write another book. I'm already in the process of writing two separate novels which may or may not ever get published. It's a fun process.
Day 30 - Wow, I can't believe it's been 30 days of tracking. I'll have my entire 30 day results in a separate post.

Measurements: 7:20 am
Workout: 9:30 am
I'm switching from HIT to free weights for the next 12 months to gain strength. I will continue to utilize the principles of HIT because it promotes safety first with proper form, slow movement, and lifting till failure. I think these concepts can be transferred to free weights.
Today's workout was exhausting and long. The lunges with 105 lbs is kicking my ass and I'm going to be feeling it. I'm using a lunge instead of squats because I lack the equipment. I wanted to do a full body workout, but when I tried dead lifting, I just couldn't handle it. I can't wait to join a gym so I can begin a new strength training program and with proper equipment.
Lunch: 1:30 pm

Carbs: 19.5 (6.5 net carbs)
Dinner: 4:30 pm
6.5 oz Free Range Chicken Thigh, 4.85 oz Mixed Green Salad, 2 Tbsp Olive Oil and EVCO, 1.25 oz Top Round Grass Fed Beef Jerkey, 2 Tbsp Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice, 1 Tsp Fish Oil

Good luck with the milk thing. I love all things dairy, but I think the asian side of my genes are kicking in as I get older. I'm wondering if taking probiotics and enzymes can help with tolerating dairy.
I feel like you should be on Anthony Bourdain's show. I just saw the episode where he was in Libya and they were eating camel. And after you had mentioned eating offal, there was an episode in the quebec region of canada where restaurants were serving up heart, kidneys, horse meat, etc. What a coincidence. Canadians eat from head to tail.
Glad to hear you're well. Take care
Splunky, how have you been?
