Hey all, I'm pretty new to the world of Paleo, having just read the Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf, listened to a handful of his podcasts, The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson, LeanGains, and other such blogs. I've been eating paleo + goat dairy (as... (more)
Does anyone have a guideline? Out of eight quart containers that I got out of my first batch of broth, only two were freezable containers, the other six are in glass mason jars in my fridge. I'm not sure how quickly I will drink them. Also,I... (more)
I was thinking about this earlier while thinking about menudo as I was munching on a piece of oxtail. When I tried to make bone broth, it pretty much failed, even though I used cartilage-y pieces of bone. The broth wasn't gelatinous at all. But... (more)
This is my first year where I won't be able to make my usual black beans with my leftover Easter ham bone. What are some good Paleo ham bone recipes to make? Split pea and ham soup? Can ham bones be used for bone broth? Or is that a beef bone... (more)
I saw this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHsrT8Om_Rk And was struck by the baby attempting to copy the way the dogs were gnawing on their bones. I then started to wonder if anyone had ever given a baby (meaty or not meaty?) bones for... (more)
As long as the bone is safe like a knuckle bone and not sharp or too small I think a bone is a good 'teething ring' with great flavour. I'd just monitor the baby while the bone was being chewed.
I've read that when bones have given up all their nutrients they go soft. I tried simmering some cow bones, with vinegar, for over two weeks (perpetual broth style), but they're still not soft. Should I just keep simmering them forever?
Today I asked the butcher for some bones and ended up buying something that I think are cow knees or legs (??)... I thought of making stock with it, but now I'm wondering if that's the best idea. Anyone has any good suggestions? This was my... (more)
I like to braise tougher cuts of meat (which usually are more bone than meat). Brown with some good oil (like coconut oil) on all sides in a hot pan, then saute some veggies like onion, carrot, celery and garlic until the onions are translucent.... (more)
Since I'm doing an autoimmune diet for now, I've been experimenting with some different foods to keep it interesting. Today I made smelts. I had never had them before but I thought - they have good fats, are low on the food chain, and on sale to... (more)
Or did I leave them in the fridge too long? I think I thawed them 5 days ago, I think. They're roasting now.
Simple question. Nothing to add except this picture maybe? Thanks
Funny, I was craving short ribs, cooler weather is coming!, and found this recipe on Mark's Daily Apple, at the bottom is a recipe for a spare rib vegetable soup which multi-tasks the bones and other tasty bits. The only thing I would do... (more)
I ate some softened beef short rib and marrow bones. I'm wondering how the nutritional stats look like? Are there carbs? Thanks!
I just read this fascinating interview about bone health with Ron Rosedale. The interview is long, but well worth reading. Here are a few takeaway points: Current medical treatments for osteoporosis like Fosamax inhibit old bone turnover. They... (more)
I'm about to make bone broth for the first time. I've just opened the fridge to get the bones. The smell is horrible. Is this normal? It's quite a a lot and i bought it directly from a grass-fed farm one week ago. Could it be spoiled? 1 Week... (more)
I make bone broth in a pressure cooker. When using lamb or goat or chicken, the bones come out very soft. I tried chewing on some which had some gelatinous substance left on them and they were very palatable. Is it OK to do so? Since they consist... (more)
I've made a few bone broths. I first gathered all the bones that came from my meats: mostly, beef but also some pork and lamb. Then I discovered big marrow bones. I put some vinegar and boil until the marrow is dissolved from the core and the... (more)
If one was over-fat and mal-nourished, then subsequently turned their health around with proper nutrition, weight bearing exercise and supplements (magnesium, D, K2), is it possible to weigh more, but measurements and body fat percentage remain... (more)
after a constant pain in my right foot for over two months, x-rays [no fracture] and finally after mri, my doctor has diagnosed the problem as bone bruise. my research shows it could take months to years for this to heal and fully recover. i want... (more)
I just love eating bones. Canned salmon with bones, roasted beef marrow, and the spine of a rotisserie chicken is my favorite part... After making bone broth, I'll sit down to a nice big bowl of... bones. But it's times like these- eating bones... (more)
Hej, I found today a offer for brown millet. The claim it is the origin of the millet. So it could be in a sense paleo. Have you tried it? Iam not sure i saw one offers it fermented. Some sprout the brown millet. I think i wont buy it. What they... (more)
First, you should realize that we are what we eat. Right? Second, you might realize that if we eat muscle meats then those are perfect for repairing and maintaining our muscle. But what if our joints hurt from exercise, injury, or accident? Go... (more)
Note that I did not add the notorious "MC". Recently, I stumbled upon this video with Jamie Oliver: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9B7im8aQjo Up until the point where he adds the stabilizer and bread crumbs I thought that might be one very... (more)
I was chomping down on some pork spare ribs for dinner tonight when I got to looking at the bones and wondering, hmm, can I eat this? I know that early humans are suspected to have benefited greatly from the consumption of marrow and I'm pretty... (more)
Is it possible to have good serum calcium and vitamin D levels and weak bones? I've been paleo for a couple years and have always had decent serum calcium and good vitamin D levels. Broke a bone today doing something that should never have... (more)
