Round-Up Of The Best Strict Carnivore Diet Recipes

In the past year, the Carnivore Diet has made a name for itself and recipes have exploded all over the internet. The problem I’m finding is that many of these recipes are keto or ketovore recipes. Very few recipes appear to be strict Carnivore Diet recipes.

These keto or ketovore recipes still have high amounts of protein and fat, but other ingredients such as spices and alternative sugars have slipped into those recipes.

That’s why I set out to round up a list of the best strict Carnivore Diet recipes, for those of us who enjoy boundaries and long to see the benefits of an animal-products only diet.

I'm a full-time wife and semi-stay-at-home mom to four young kids. Day to day, I help my husband with his small business, but when I have any extra time, you can find me cooking or being active outdoors with my family. We live at the foothills of the North Georgia mountains and are embracing modern homesteading month by month.


  1. Hi Haley,

    thank you for this thoughtfully curated list of strict carnivore foods. this is exactly what I’ve been searching for online. my fiance and I are starting a carnivore diet today and it’s been hard finding recipes and guidance. my doctor prescribed this diet for me to heal my gut and I need to stick to it for 3 months. it needs to be strictly carnivore and not keto. I have had the same issue when looking for recipes. I have strict orders from my doctor but the internet seems confused about what a carnivore diet is.

  2. Do your children adhere to this diet as well? We want to do it for our 4yr old who suffers from severe eczema and we have already tried many other avenues.

    1. They do not, but we have two sons with Eosinophilic Esophagitis and we think that the older would would benefit from following it as a great elimination diet experiment. He’s currently on Dupixent, which I know has been prescribed for extreme eczema as well. We are not big fans of medicine at all, but we are here for now. He’s been on restricted diets since age two, but never a meat-only diet.

  3. Thank you! As you noted, it is sooo difficult to find strict carnivore recipes, and, though the lifestyle offers countless health benefits, a little variety is much welcome.
