But how do you explain allergies to paleo-friendly foods like meat? I have friends who have "allergic" reactions to CAFO meat, but not grass-finished/antibiotic-free meat.

Some people say that eating fruit and meat (or any other high protein food) in the same meal is a bad idea. Is there any truth to this?

I eat meat with fruit all the time because, well, it's delicious. The reason I've heard against eating fruit and meat together is that fruit contains vitamin c which can increase iron absorption. But then I thought about it... and a pepper has... (more)

Throw it on a salad, put it in a soup, make turkey salad with a paleo mayo, put it in chili, add it to an omelet. I wouldn't keep it in the fridge too much longer than a week before doing something with it.

It's highly processed with various additives, so it's quite bad IMHO. I used to eat that a lot when I was living in the UK (I had a phase where I tried to limit real meat 12-14 years ago).

Pouring off the fat when you are cooking factory farmed beef or pork is appropriate, but not when the fat is from grass fed, pastured animals. That fat keeps the meat moist, adds flavor, and is good for you.

If you are worried about excess iron, you can donate blood. That would help others as well. Your meat intake doesn't jump out to be as excessive.

How much meat do you eat? Are you at a half pound or under per day? Around a pound? More than 2 pounds? Also are there other significant forms of protein in your diet? OPTIONAL: If you are on low protein what is your reason?
