A meat thermometer is a small gadget that you can use to check the internal temperature of the meat. This is useful for ensuring that meat is cooked to a safe temperature and gets the desired level of doneness.
To use a meat thermometer, simply insert the probe into the thickest part of the meat. The temperature will be displayed on the thermometer’s dial.
Meat thermometers are a valuable tool for any cook. They can help you to ensure that your meat is cooked to a safe temperature, and they can also help you to confirm the meat is cooked right through.
The carnivore diet is a high-fat, low to zero-carbohydrate diet that consists of eating only animal products, such as meat, fish, eggs, and dairy. There is plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that the carnivore diet can be helpful for people with type 2 diabetes to reduce their insulin dose or ultimately come off their insulin completely.
One study found that people with type 2 diabetes who followed a carnivore diet for 12 weeks experienced significant improvements in their blood sugar control, insulin sensitivity, and body weight. Another study found that people with type 2 diabetes who followed a carnivore diet for 24 weeks could reduce their medication by an average of 50%.
The carnivore diet is thought to help with diabetes by reducing insulin resistance and inflammation. Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body’s cells do not respond to the hormone insulin, which is responsible for helping glucose enter the cells. Inflammation is a process that can damage cells and tissues, and it is thought to play a role in the development of type 2 diabetes.
The carnivore diet is also thought to help with weight loss in some people, which can also improve blood sugar control. Weight loss can help to reduce insulin resistance and inflammation, and it can also help to improve the body’s ability to use insulin.
Pigs in blankets are a traditional British Christmas food consisting of small sausages wrapped in streaky or back bacon. They are typically made with chipolata-style sausages, but you can use other sausages as long as you source the cleanest ones possible.
You can ask your local butcher if they make their own sausages. Most traditional butchers still make their own sausages on-site, so they may be happy to accommodate your needs if you ask for pure pork sausages with no added fillers as long as you buy a large enough quantity to make it worth their while.
If you love sausages, they can be one of the most difficult things to give up on a carnivore diet. Typically, British sausages are only around 50 to 60 per cent meat, with the rest comprising fillers such as wheat flour, rusk or potato flour.
We always say to do the best you can when sourcing sausages, and most UK supermarkets make their own at between 90 to 98 per cent meat with added pork fat, herbs and spices making up the difference.
However, if you really cannot tolerate added ingredients in your sausages, you could always make your own! You can buy home sausage-making kits from eBay and Amazon. Many Zero Carb Carnivore UK Facebook group members have successfully made some delicious homemade sausages.
