It is less clear cut than the skin case. There there is a nutrient that is sometimes in short supply. The skin post should have concluded "Eat tripe, cartilage, tendons, bacon, oxtail, neck meat, headcheese, short ribs or skin for a healthy... (more)

Hello Laura. The reason the allergies took awhile to reappear is probably because you are having an IgG response rather than IgA: IgG takes 48-72 hours to show versus true allergies which are immediate. The problem with IgG is over time the... (more)

Ask your dentist if they can do a bone graft. It's not appropriate in all cases or situations, but when it can be used it can make a huge difference.

We are buying a 1/2 of beef. I want to get some of the bones to make bone broth. What types of bones work best? I am just not sure how to order it? I have never made bone broth before. Thank you!

Will my bone mineral density or bone mineral content or bone size or whatever increase from eating bones? Technique to eat bones: cook as a bone broth until they're edible. Preferably mushed up in the actual broth.

Maybe. If you're coming off a SAD-style diet to a Paleo-style diet, you might well end up with denser bones, but the relationship isn't going to be linear. At some point, your bones will achieve a normal density and then stop getting denser due... (more)

Yup, the jelly was the gelatin. Put it in the fridge next time so that the fat will end up on the very top and can be taken off. It will get hard. Use the fat to cook your eggs.

I'll suggest konbu, it's a type of thick fleshy seaweed that stands well to prolonged simmering. Plus, great source of iodine, no need to worry about whether you're taking in enough on those days you're not having seafood.

If they are hard weight-bearing bones then you will indeed need a saw of some kind. Butchers use a band saw, you can probably use a hack saw, or there are culinary saws. Be careful that you don't get any bone fragments in the food. If the bones... (more)

I doubt that those reactions happen in any significant amount at temperatures well below the smoke point. This is true for sat, mostly true for mono, and probably not true for PUFA. use tallow, and cook those marrow bones no more than 15 minutes. (more)
