The Marker's Diet Sample Meal Plan
The Maker's Diet is a dramatic departure from the typical diet and lifestyle. Participating in the program will probably require becoming familiar with completely new foods and methods of cooking.
To give you an idea of the wealth of wonderful, healthy foods you can expect to enjoy on The Maker's Diet, we have included a sampling meal plan.

1/4 cup heavy cream
3 Tbsp. melted butter or extra virgin coconut oil
Few grains of cayenne pepper (optional)
Beat eggs well. Add cream. Heat butter in skillet or pan; add egg mixture, cooking slowly, until of a creamy texture. If desired, 1 cup of chopped turkey bacon, chicken, beef, or peppers may be added for variations in taste.

Maker's Diet Suggested Dinner
Family Roast Beef
4-5 lb. chuck roast, preferably from grass-fed beef
1/4 pound butter
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
Celtic sea salt
Black pepper, freshly ground
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rub the roast with salt and pepper and place in a baking dish with 2-inch sides. In a saucepan, melt the butter and add an equal volume of Worcestershire sauce. Pour the sauce over the roast. Bake slowly at 325 degrees until a meat thermometer reads 150-155 degrees (for medium). Remove the roast from the oven and allow it to rest and redistribute the juices before carving. The temperature will climb to 160 degrees. It is particularly important that grass-fed beef be cooked more slowly at a lower temperature than commercial beef. Grass-fed beef should also be allowed to "coast in" to the desired level of doneness by removing it from the oven several minutes before you think it is done. This preserves the juiciness and produces meat that is tender.
NOTE: Worcestershire sauce was originally based on lacto-fermented green English walnut catsup (in addition to the fish pastes). By Keith Tindall from White Egret Farm. Used by permission.
