Happy Holidays! Have you made your Carnivore/ Keto holiday shopping list yet? I have embraced minimalism over the last few years which means I just try to be more intentional about what is being bought and focus on what brings me great value.
I also like to focus on experiences rather than things. These items are some of the items I love use most everyday. Speaking of minimalism, what could be more minimal than following a carnivore diet, I have saved a ton this year not buying keto treats like dark chocolate and kombucha.
Some tips to have a more minimalist carnivore holiday season:
- shop for previously loved gifts at a consignment shop
- choose experience gifts to do together rather than things
- be mindful of what you really need to avoid having more stuff junking up your house
- don’t just buy the latest gadget without thinking about it for 72 hours
- make sure you can return things in case you have a minimalism attack.
- only buying things when the old one is truly worn out or not working.
- buy consumable goods like food or personal care products that will be used up
- buy books for a kindle/ibooks rather than adding to a bookshelf
Keep in mind that I may receive commissions when you click my links and make purchases. However, this does not impact my reviews and comparisons .I only recommend products I use and love.

Carbon Steel Pan
One thing I have used so much this whole year is my favorite carbon steel pan. I have the smallest one and it is indestructible. I have had it two years and I never seasoned it but it is non-stick and you can scrape it with metal spatulas and steel wool without any damage. Also it lasts forever without the toxic chemicals in other pans that last forever in the environment. I promise you will love it and use it daily like I do. Make sure to order the silicone handle as well. order here

I have been enjoying my Nutrisense meter for 15 days. Use my code grassfedgirl to save $25 off your first sensor. It can be a really grata way to gauge your health status if you are worried about your risk of diabetes especially. It shows me my blood sugar every hour all day so I can see how certain foods affect my blood sugar, even my mood and energy. It is fascinating and I think everyone should try it for two weeks to really get to know their body. Order here
Having an air fryer has been so important to my sanity while following a carnivore diet, I use it constantly. It keeps the grease inside and not all over your counters and floors. It is easy to dump the grease tray for easy clean up. It is super powerful and fast. I make my frozen ribeye with an air fryer (watch my video here). I used to have a cuisinart but after a bad burn on my hand I got rid of it. Now I am looking at these two because they are low in toxic forever chemicals.

I started taking liver pills when I was pregnant and then I started taking them again a month ago. I really think they help with my energy because liver is natures multivitamin.
