Recovering Vegetarian Needs Meat Suggestions

6 posts in this topic

For the first 20 years of my life, until I was diagnosed with Celiac two years ago I was a vegetarian. Since going gluten free I have also started eating meat. I've found that I really enjoy seafood and beef but will eat chicken (and occasionally pork). I already eat a decent amount of protein - tofu & beans but I'm trying to lose 20 lbs as well as get used to eating meat regularly. Any and all recipes are welcome, especially if they are also casein/dairy free! I'd especially like spicy or really intensely flavorful recipes. Thanks!

I use my George Foreman grill almost daily. McCormick makes a seasoning blend that has cinnamon and chipolte and it is wonderful on fish, chicken and beef. I've also used it on pork roasts in the crock pot to make "carnitas" in a healthy way. With any good seasonings, that grill is my best friend :D

Boy I hear you on this one as I used to be the Director of Marketing for the second largest all natural and organic frozen foods company. The good news was that I was surrounded with as much free food as I wanted, the bad news was that it lacked some serious protein.

So onto the recommendations! Always try to find meats that are less than double digit fat levels and always trim ALL visible fat. Here are my personal favorites:

- Beef flank steak

- Pork tenderloin

- Turkey burgers

- Boneless pork chops (cut from the loin)

- Buffalo burgers (look in the club stores)

- All natural lunch meats (in the deli)

- 92-95% lean beef patties

- Salmon patties (usually in the frozen section)

- Rack of Pork (bone in roasts)

As far as spices, no kitchen would be complete without McCormick's "Montreal Steak Seasoning".

I'm not sure where you live, but in Denver we have several boutique spice shops. If you have the same, head in there and ask for 3-4 mini jars specifically for beef, pork, and poultry. Each jar will run you less than $5 a bottle. Experiment and have fun.

I like lamb tagines and kefta. Get grassfed lamb, and just check out one of Paula Wolfert's cookbooks from the library to get a recipe for a tagine that appeals to you.

You could always do any type of Ka-bob (I don't think I spelled that right). That way you can get meat and veggies and try all types of dipping sauces. It's simple and healthy. You can mix it up, too. Shrimp, steak and sometimes chicken - if you feel in the mood.

And if you really want to give it a Mediterranean feel (Hey, that's where kabobs originated), put the skewers on a bed of rice and get some carbs as well.

Back to my posting about the spice shop, I have a bottle that I bought last year called "Mount Olympus Greek Style Seasoning". I bet that this seasoning would be a perfect compliment to any meat kabob.

Geesh... I better go get my Greek god apparel back from the dry cleaner!

    • After this post I will leave the subject of night blindness to others. Thanks to those who have offered suggestions and to Scott Adams for creating the forum. It is a fine website and I also like the review articles by Jefferson Adams.  I have suffered from patchy night blindness in the summer only for the last 8 years. The winter reprieve is now less complete but I was more or less free by the end of October 2016 and it started again in March 2017. A description of the scotomas was posted on July 4 2015 and the picture shows at the top the L and R eye scotomas on June 25 2017 at 4 a.m. Summer time, and below as they diminish just before dawn. The only problem they cause is reading the time at night. So far they are unexplained and still appear to be unique, though notme! GottaSki and Solandra all mention night vision troubles. I found a paper by Daniel Organisciak Ph.D:  Retinal Light Damage [2010] in which he mentions that experimental damage to the rodent retina by bright light affects the night vision rods particularly in the upper hemisphere of the eye = lower visual field, spares the periphery and may have fairly sharp boundaries. This sounds rather like my scotomas! I went through records to see if they were smaller after a cloudy day but there was no clear relationship. Topcon fundus photos etc today suggested that my eyes were normal for age. There must be someone out there with similar symptoms who has not noticed them!  
    • G'day and welcome Going gluten free helped but it didn't get rid of the SD. The best shampoo was Nizoral due to the Ketonacazole active ingredient. I also find dairy, especially milk is really not good for my skin. Check this thread out too: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/75943-seborrheic-dermatitis/#comment-977173  
    • I am always snacking on nuts, seeds, almond butter, and protein shakes, full fat, and high fiber foods help you stay full longer. I use vegan protein powders like NutraKey V-pro , MRM veggie elite , etc so no issues and dairy free. PS if you ever get those crazy random cravings or need foods I complied a comprehensive list of gluten-free food alternatives and where to get gluten free foods https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I discovered omelettes for breakfast after I went on the diet. It gave me a chance to incorporate more vegetables by stirfrying them first and using them as a filling. A 2 egg omelette with spinach, peppers and mushroom filling sets me up for the day and because of the protein in the eggs I didn't 'crash' at 11am and start snacking.  I switch the fillings each day, onions, avocados, kale, bacon etc. so it doesn't get boring. 
    • Hi!  Skin problems often are related to vitamin deficiencies.   http://www.podiatrytoday.com/when-vitamin-and-nutritional-deficiencies-cause-skin-and-nail-changes I found this article helpful.   Pellagra is a deficiency in niacin.  One symptom is a rash when exposed to sunlight.  You might be nutrient deficient.  A good B complex vitamin may help.
