I'm only able to get my hands on Tyson's "All Natural" (whatever that means) chicken livers, both due to price and simple availability. Are chicken livers (regardless of their quality) any better or worse than other types of animal livers? Are... (more)

There is currently no FDA definition for the term "All Natural". It is a BS marketing ploy of the food industry.

I have made gizzards differently multiple times and have enjoyed them each time, but I was wondering what other people do when they cook theirs. Just looking for new recipes is all. Thanks!

I have made a chicken curry from a couple different Paleo recipes and they always have so much liquid left over. Normally I would use rice with my curry dish but since that isn't really ideal option what else could I use?

Thank you for all the input. I am still kind of confused. How do I know white rice is ok in moderation but brown isn't? I guess I will figure it out.

Nutritionally, chicken and turkey are nothing special. In fact, other than a little B12, they don't offer much more than plants in terms of nutrients (well, plants offer nearly everything but B12, so you could say they're pretty good). They're... (more)

No, chicken doesn't really offer anything unique, unlike fish (omega-3s), beef (iron and zinc), and pork (thiamine).

I'm probably going to get hammered for this question but is Tyson's no hormones no antibiotics chicken healthy? This is a major conglomerate and that usually means deceptive advertising.

Eat chicken instead of beef when you want chicken, not beef, for dinner. Simple as that. You can make an argument either way for chicken or beef in terms of nutrition. Or better yet, both are nutritious whole foods. I personally prefer pork to... (more)

I'm looking at the ground chicken Do they feed the chickens worms or grass? or what? It's 7.50 a pound and if they don't feed them organic bugs ffs, i'll just stick with the $2 a pound natural chicken that my farmer's market sells.

The best way to reheat them is in a solar oven. http://www.solarovens.org/

French cookbooks have you bring it to a boil every 3-4 days. I make mine with only meat,bones, salt, vinegar and it lasts a week or more easily in my very cold fridge (39-40 degrees). If i add onions, celery, etc, it does not keep nearly as long. (more)

Nuts should be eaten in small quantities, like 5 or 10 at a time, and the huge gallon-sized drums of nuts fr Costco are very likely to encourage over-eating. I wouldn't buy nuts in bulk like that, just IMHO.

Paleo gets a little too hung up on grass-fed and organic. Grass-fed is great, but 100% grass-fed isn't necessary - some grain is fine in a cow's diet. Even more is fine for chicken and pigs (they're not grazing animals, they forage.) Organic...... (more)
