Meat & Fruit + Faith & forgiveness can change your life!

How can a Meat & Fruit centered diet, plus faith & forgiveness change your life?  

In a nutshell, because you need to eat simple, basic real food to enjoy good, or fruitful health ~ free of infirmities, premature aging, and chronic ill or dis-ease.

Additionally, as I have discovered first hand, having a really great, fruitful life requires more than just a healthy, balanced diet.  

We need to feed our mind and spirit with nourishing 'food' ~ not just our body!

Our Meat & Fruit + Faith & Forgiveness formula encompasses many factors we believe are fundamental to living a fruitful life.



Hi! My name is Tracy Matesz, wife and co-author/coach with my husband, Don Matesz. Welcome!  

I hope to inspire living a healthy, fruitful life by sharing our own experiences, some helpful resources, and our favorite simple and delicious meat & fruit recipes!  

My husband specializes in nutrition, functional medicine, and safe and effective bodyweight and X3 Bar Strength Training.  You can visit his website here.

The Food & Faith theme was birthed as a result of decades worth of experience with a multitude of diets, therapies and spiritual practices and all the associated ups and downs that I / we now understand were the consequence of living out of divine order.  

Having paid the price, we are both passionate about illuminating a far more direct path through that narrow gate that we know ourselves, few will find.

First and foremost, we want to see people get strong and healthy.  

We have tried everything, and absolutely love and endorse our Meats & Sweets, or meat & fruit approach.  It's biblically sound, and neither devoid of animal foods, nor plants, nor requiring special expensive ingredients or super foods.  We help you find your sweet spot of protein, carbs, and fat as well ~ though direct experience!

In addition to getting your temple-body in great shape with a meat & fruit centered diet and safe fitness training, we encourage harvesting 'the fruit of the Spirit' ~ to experience a peace that transcends all understanding as Paul wrote in his Epistle to the Philippians:

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." ~ Philippians 4:6-7



"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." ~ Matthew 7:13



My entire life has been focused on overcoming!  While challenging ~ with a trail of disappointments and regrets ~  it has helped me be here today offering all that I learned to help you!  I now thank God for every challenge and loss I ever endured. 

I'm in my late fifties, and transformed my life (and health) with food and faith ~ meat & fruit plus faith & forgiveness.  

I can help you find your way through the narrow gate as well.  While it's not up to me, it's up to you...I have a flashlight and can help illuminate your way.  (Meaning I've been there, and I can help you stay on a far more direct course!)

Food & Faith: Meat & Fruit + Faith & Forgiveness = our formula for a fruitful life!

How many people do you know that are truly at peace?  Even very wealthy people lack peace of mind and heart!

How many people do you know are content with their body, weight, looks, relationships, family, jobs, finances, and life in general.

Most of us are plagued with mental torment ~ worry, anxiety, fear, remorse, frustration, anger, resentment, self-pity, and endless stress.  I know I was, and still work at rebuking these debilitating, energy draining habitual mental / emotional habits ~ SOS!

We have been 'trained' to acquire things to fill our voids, but it never works.  It can't.  Things can't fill our spiritual voids.  Only a change in our entire operating system can do that!  

The 'Secret' ~ laws of manifestation ~ may help you manifest what you desire (or rather think you desire) ~ yet once the high of manifesting wears off, you will be looking for the next 'thing' to acquire!  It's endless because those ego desires are insatiable!

There are very real reasons that we are all suffering ~ individually and collectively.  It's a disconnect from our Source ~ God ~ and transgression of His laws! That is made very clear throughout the Bible, and throughout our history!


"But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, Long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-Control. Against such there is no law." ~Galatians 5:22-23


Want to Learn More? Here's How To Get Started

Here is a recommended outline for following our Meat & Fruit, Faith & Forgiveness format for living a healthier, more fruitful life.

  1. EAT! Taking care of your body ~ your sacred temple ~ with the right food is a great first step.  We recommend our meat & fruit centered high vitality diet It's evidence-based + God approved!  

  2. FAST!  We recommend time-restrictive feeding windows, which Don outlined in his great, easy to read little book, Primal Fasting. 

  3. GET FIT!  We recommend smart and effective body weight resistance training.  Be strong and you will be more fruitful!

  4. PRAY!  Simply pray for God / Jesus / the Holy Spirit to guide you directly!  A sincere desire to connect will be answered! Pray, have patience, and faith!  Don't take my word, nor anyone's word over your own divine guidance!  Be Still And Know!

  5. FORGIVE (Look for my new article on forgiveness here.  In the mean time you can read my forgiveness series from my Strong Spirit Path blog, here.)

  6. REPENT! (Article to come.  You may be interested in my call to repent and awaken, here, and why I got baptized, here.)

  7. Get Aligned!  Experience greater freedom mentally and emotionally by getting in alignment spiritually!  I refer to this as our Divine Operating System, or DOS in my upcoming book, The Golden Compass.  (Be sure to bookmark this page, or sign up for my occasional emailed newsletters to be alerted when that book, and our Meat & Fruit High Vitality Diet second edition is published.) 

  8. Harvest the fruit of the Spirit!  Be an overcomer!  You must fight against the SOS and all the pulls ~ distractions, addictions, programming, and negative emotional states that block your ability to transform your life.  Fear and worry are bad habits that rob you of peace and vitality and reflect an inherent lack of faith.  I can help! (Check the links in #9 to learn how!)

  9. CONNECT Connect with your one true source of healing, strength, courage, faith, and peace ~ God!  Connect with me with questions, here. Read about Holistic CORE Counseling, here, and Health Coaching, here.


"Be still & know that I am God" ~Psalm 46:10


The ultimate power to transform and heal your life begins with your sincere desire to change.  The biggest obstacle for many people to overcome is the  resistant, obstinate nature of our mind, or ego.  It does not want to be subservient to anything!

"Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." ~Romans8:6

God created us to be healthy, strong and fruitful, not weak, immobile or unproductive.  We are meant to experience peace, love and joy, not anger, fear or hate. 

When we relent and surrender and seek God first (Matthew 6:33) all we really need seems to magically appear ~ with far greater grace and ease! Trust the DOS > SOS and you will experience FAITH > FEAR!

God has a plan to usher in His kingdom.  

We can be part of His plan to bring His glorious Kingdom to earth.  Learning this helped me to feel enlivened with a sense of purpose.  

Having a sense of purpose fuels our spirit and gives us all the energy we need to accomplish His great works!



"Eat meat & fruit so your tree will be good, and bear abundant, good fruit!" ~Tracy :)


"No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit.  Indeed, people do not gather figs from thornbushes, or grapes from brambles." 

~Luke 6:43





"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light." ~ Matthew 6:22
