Eating well can seem complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. The truth is, one of the keys to having the energy, optimal body composition, and overall wellness we crave is the thing we’re so often told is bad for us: animal protein.
An ideal diet is one that is nourishing, balanced, and satisfying—but so often, we’re told to cut out entire categories of food, and instead of feeling healthy, we end up feeling restricted, hungry, and even sick. Women are frequently targeted with misinformation about the “appropriate” diet to keep us thin, which demonizes animal protein and fat in favor of low-calorie, low-fat foods and leaves us no closer to our goals. Good health is not about deprivation; it’s about finding balance and embracing the most nutrient-dense foods nature has to offer.
In their new book, Carnivore-ish: 125 Protein-Rich Recipes to Boost Your Health and Build Muscle, Ashleigh VanHouten and Beth Lipton cut through the clutter and dogma to provide an accessible and informative resource about adding more healthy protein to your meals. This book busts the myths and fear mongering and explains how and why to include these foods, which taste delicious, provide satisfaction, and can help you look and feel the way you want to.
