What is a Nutritional Ketosis Diet? []

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fuelling brain function. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. This elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood is a state known as ketosis.

I've been using Shan curry mixes as dry rubs on various meats before grilling. I've used salmon, beef, chicken, and lamb and they all come out amazing. No marinading is required. Below is a picture of my two favorite flavors so far.

My most favorite food in the world (at the moment) happens to be home made steak tartare. While it is a good spread for cucumber, celery, radishes, etc. I've found putting it on a piece of Virgil's Green Chille Beef Jerky (1/2 the price at Costco) to be like catnip.

1 lb ground beef
2 Tbsp Green Onion diced
2 Tbsp Red Onion diced
3 Anchovy Fillets (1.5 tsp fish sauce can be substituted)
3 Cloves of Garlic diced
1 Tbsp Capers (pickle relish / pickles dill or sweet can be substituted)
1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
Cayenne Pepper to taste ~ 1 tsp
Salt to taste ~ ½ tsp

Home Made Mayo:
  • 2 egg yolks @ room temp
  • ½ cup oil (¼ c Coconut Oil + ¼ c Extra Virgin Olive Oil) an extra 1/2 cup of oil can be used if using very lean meat.
  • 1 tsp vinegar (½ tsp red wine + ½ tsp apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 tsp mustard

  1. Food process the onions, anchovies, garlic, and capers to finely chopped blend. Set aside.
  2. Food process egg yolks, vinegar, and 1 tsp mustard for 4 seconds. Then place 4 or 5 drops of oil mixture in.
  3. Food process very slowly drizzling in oil to make mayo. If it comes out soupy you can still use it.
  4. Blend mayo, the veggies from earlier, ground beef, 1 Tbsp of Dijon Mustard, and spices to taste.
  5. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
I usually use the eggs from my own chickens but I also trust the Owl Canyon Eggs for Grant farm:
