What Are The Best Chopping Boards for Preparing Meat?

The best chopping board for meat preparation is made from a durable material that is easy to clean and sanitise. Some popular materials for chopping boards include plastic, wood, and bamboo.

Plastic chopping boards are generally considered a good option for raw meat, as they are easy to clean and sanitise. Plastic boards are also non-porous, meaning they will not absorb bacteria or odours. However, plastic boards can be more challenging to cut on than wooden or bamboo boards, which may not last as long.

An issue with plastic chopping boards is that they can dull knife blades. The harder the plastic material, the more likely it is to dull a knife blade. Plastic is more rigid than wood, so it is more likely to dull a knife blade than a wooden chopping board. However, the type of plastic and the quality of the knife blade will also affect how quickly the knife dulls.

Which Kitchen Knives Are Good to Use on a Carnivore Diet?

A few different types of knives are best for use on the carnivore diet. The most important thing is to choose sharp and durable knives, as you will be using them to cut through tough cuts of meat, sinew and small bones.

Some of the best knives for the carnivore diet include:

  • A chef’s knife: This is a versatile knife that can be used for various tasks, such as chopping, slicing, and dicing.
  • A boning knife: This thin, flexible knife is used to remove bones from meat.
  • A carving knife: This is a long, sharp knife used for carving meat.
  • A steak knife: This is a short, serrated knife used for cutting through a steak.

Having a good cutting board to use with your knives is also essential. A wooden cutting board is usually considered better than plastic, as it will not blunt your knives.

Here are some tips for using knives on the carnivore diet:

  • Always keep your knives sharp. A dull knife is more likely to slip and cause injury.
  • Use a chopping or cutting board when cutting meat. This will protect your kitchen worktop from damage.
  • Be careful when cutting meat. Use a sharp knife and cut away from your body.
  • Wash your knives thoroughly after use. This will prevent the spread of bacteria.

Do You Need Electrolytes On A Carnivore Diet?

Many people moving from a standard UK diet to a keto or carnivore diet are advised to take electrolytes to help them transition and adapt to a low or zero-carb diet.

The theory behind needing to take electrolytes stems from these diets being anti-inflammatory. This means that when you move to eat in a way that removes inflammatory foods and drinks from your diet, your body will expel a lot of tissue fluids that the body holds onto while in an inflammatory state.

Moving to a carnivore diet is excellent for anyone suffering from bloating and water retention or has inflammation caused by eating foods that humans are not biologically built to digest and utilise efficiently. But the sudden ‘whoosh’ effect of dropping water weight can also deplete muscles and bodily tissues of essential electrolytes needed for proper function.
