Always take your turmeric with black pepper. I honestly would not worry too much about turmeric and hepatotoxicity. But if you're worried about it, take magnesium. Magnesium is good for the liver AND improves digestion and pooping.

I think it depends on you definition of "paleo", but you can definitely make gluten-free gravy. Some sort of starch is inevitable because the cooked starch is what gelatinizes and thickens the stock. This post on glutenfreegirl.com features a... (more)

I continue to be baffled by Matt's claims of low copper in the paleo diet. Normalized to zinc intake (they should be in a 1/10 ratio):- all nuts are around 1/1- all solanaceae, including the heavily used (by paleo-people) white potatoes, are 1/1-... (more)

They don't sit well with you mentally or physically? Because if it is a problem with taste, you can chop the liver/kidney up and mix into a meatloaf or burger patties. You won't be able to taste it.

It is just as paleo as any of the other paleo things we modern humans eat. If you want to be a stickler, then only food you hunted and gathered is paleo, and then you most likely ate it raw, or possibly roasted over an open fire.
