My Dragon Knuckle Beef Jerky Diet
Let's get this out of the way right now: I'm not a dietician.
But I'm over forty and overweight. Not too much. I could stand to drop 10 or 20 pounds. I work out and am a vigorous dude, but I'd like to be a little leaner.
My Gorgeous Illustrator would agree.
So recently I looked into changing my diet. I needed to find something I could live with. Because fat and happy is better than slim and miserable, right?
After some reading and research, I realize carbs are the enemy. The good news about a Low Carb/Paleo/Keto diet (or whatever you want to call it) is meat is not a problem.
Lean is better but meat is not bad.
We can do this.
I've seen Low Carb diet lists that include cheese, bacon, pork rinds (pork rinds!) and beef jerky. I don't believe the pork rinds are a healthy choice and think most store-bought jerky must contain some artificial crap.
So, Meat and Vegetables Right?
That I can handle. Eat eggs in the morning rather than cereal. Ditch pasta, rice and potatoes in favor of more vegetables.
But keep the meat.
So when I get home from the gym and need something easy to chomp on, I reach for homemade beef jerky.
How do I make it?
