But a nice smoked meat could be used in a number of healthy dishes.
Now if you're a brewer, that would be hard to do and diet, I'd think :(
Right on with this one!!! Just like everyone else says, sugars, flour, and processed crap food is what is hurting us. I am in the same boat as you are, and am going to be more in tune with what I am going to be eating. Real meat, fruits and veggies, no sugar, and no flour. For sweeteners I might be ok with real maple syrup, or honey. Only processed stuff is if I process it myself. If anything I will be BBQing more I think.
