I eat Beef Bone marrow about 3/4 times a week, on my rest days. I love it a lot, I've been eating it since I was a little boy. I LOVE eating it with ground beef. What my mom does is she makes ground beef on one side, boils bone marrow on the other. Then I heat the bones with ground beef. Then, spread it all over the food !

While I find it extremely tasty, my mom is still against my ''excessive'' bone marrow consumption. Also, how good is it for bone health ?

Marrow is awesome. I ate that crap like crazy when I was pregnant. My son's face is much broader than my husband's or mine at the same age. I wasn't eating paleo or taking k2 at the time. Marrow is da bomb.

Marrow is or can be high in vitamin K2, so that's a good mechanism for bone marrow strengthening bones.

Eggs and egg shells. I recently discovered egg shells, well not discovered just started eating it. Tastes just like this calcium supplement I used to take 2 years ago.

I also don't know about how much it helps bone strength, but it is an excellent fat. I try to eat it as much as i can, which sadly is not all that often. But my husband takes me to Mozza for my favorite bone marrow meal on special occasions. One of these days I will learn to make my own.

Ali, what are your sources for calcium?

I used to eat/drink dairy. Then I did the 30 day experiment and I learned that I don't tolerate milk and yogurt well. I don't like green leafy vegetables and I don't eat fish as often as I should. Which leads to the concern of not getting enough calcium.

You tell us, since you've been eating it since boyhood. How has it affected your bones, if any?

I eat it because it tastes great and has a phenomenal texture. What is your mother's concern about it?

I don't know about eating marrow for bone strength, but it is a great fat and calorie source.

http://www.indiana.edu/~origins/teach/P380/proteins.html Scroll about halfway down the page to find info about hunter/gatherer tribes and bone marrow.

There's an entry on the nutritional value of bone marrow here:

The benefits are enjoyment, as preceded by drooling and followed by satisfaction. Try roasting then adding salt, lemon and fresh parsley.

How old are you?

Secondly, according to this site, bone marrow is high in iron, phosphorus and other minerals. I don't see how eating it is going to strengthen your bones. Eat leafy greens for your calcium.

Bone marrow OWNZ JOO!

No, seriously. I really, really love bone barrow. It's full of protein and fat, loads of minerals too.

I haven't read anything about it's value in bone strengthening.

I don't eat it very often - usually only when I make homemade beef stock and have the marrow bones. (I haven't bought marrow bones for the sole purpose of roasting them to eat the marrow, but perhaps...)

Sometimes I just eat it with a spoon. It is so rich and luxurious. But it's delicious spread on a grain-free cracker, sprinkled with a tiny bit of salt.
