Comment of the Week
“Interesting New Yorker article on carnivory. One big problem with a carnivore diet is that it’s expensive. Obviously, it’s somewhat offset by the fact that one isn’t buying a lot of the other food people usually buy, but it’s still going to be quite costly.
The other problem is that for many of us, it’s unappetizing. I grew up eating a wide variety of vegetables, mostly grown in my dad’s garden. We also ate meat or fish with most meals, but we never ate meat, poultry or fish exclusively. I really like veggies and remain unconvinced that eliminating them is the long-range answer for me and my family. For that reason, I prefer to stick with a more paleo way of eating.“
