Jet Fuel

“There ain’t a body, be it mouse or man, that ain’t made better by a little soup.”

-Kate DiCamillo, The Tale of Despereaux


Jet Fuel is the diet that I use to stay healthy and feel great. It’s low carb / no carb, 100% gluten free and mostly fresh meats, eggs and veggies, which I explain in “How to Start Your Gluten Free Diet.
