Sweet Paprika Fish Pot Recipe with Mango

paprika fish pot recipe

White fish is one of the recommended easily digestible proteins in the Ray Peat style diet, so this Sweet Paprika Fish Pot recipe will make cooking it super easy for you.

I keep hearing this a lot in the Ray Peat groups and forums – but what can I eat? So this year, I’m going to find, share and create more food suggestions and recipes to make life easier for myself and everyone else.

I’m not a fan of long-winded, elaborate recipes, I prefer quick and simple, but you can still pick a herb or a spice that can change the dish completely and give it a little pizzazz.

Dr Ray Peat Inspired Weight Loss

So interesting reading in the Dr Ray Peat groups recently and the study where a bunch of guys were given 6,000 calories and no exercise and demonstrated that while their metabolism increased, so too did their fat and other, not so great, health markers.

While the study was extreme, I think it was a great example of how too many people emphasise the increase of calories as the only way to get to health and a higher metabolism using Dr Ray Peat principles. (Anything under 2,500 calories was deemed to be an eating disorder! What?)

Why EAT LESS AND EXERCISE MORE is bad advice.

eat less exercise more

You hear this line thrown out everywhere – “Just eat less and exercise more” – as the magical answer to everyone’s weight issues. The problem is it doesn’t actually work if you do it incorrectly (which most people do) and makes the issues worse, as you will see in this story…

Fast metabolism snacks

fast metabolism snacks

Pro metabolic foods and fast metabolism snacks are the only ways you can actually increase your metabolism. Certain exercises can lower your metabolism but only food can increase it.

I had a question on Instagram recently – “why are you trying to eat so much fruit?”

This was in response to one of my snack pictures and caption explaining how I am trying to eat six cups of fruit a day.

Why am I putting on weight?

I had lunch with a friend recently, who like me, has been into the whole losing weight, trying to be healthy thing for years. She had tried everything too but had been in a good place for quite a while. She believed she had found her perfect mix of exercise and eating without too much drama, and she had maintained her 20kg (40lb) weight loss for the longest time.

Until now.

Low fat custard recipe – Ray Peat Inspired

ray peat, protein, low fat, metabolism, hormones

So given my latest direction of Ray Peat inspired eating, custard would have to be one of the most perfect dessert foods. Milk, sugar, maybe eggs, maybe gelatin – they’re all on the preferred foods list for optimal health in Ray’s opinion. So it’s not like you are cheating in any way when you eat this – you’re supposed to be!

So perhaps I should put ‘guilt free’ in the title?

Mushroom Cottage Cheese Dip

mushroom cottage cheese dip

While I am exploring all things Ray Peat and now lower fat in particular, one food I needed to make peace with is Cottage Cheese. Unfortunately it’s low on flavour which is why we need to add some in this Mushroom Cottage Cheese Dip. (Note on dairy intolerance at the end.)

Real cheese is fine, but the fat content really blows your daily limit of fat in one mouthful. So it needs to revert to ‘a taste adding condiment’ of 1 or 2 tablespoons only, not the half cup or full cup normally added to a dish.
