I live in Singapore and here we have dishes like pig's intestine soup - with a lot of organ meat. I've been told of the high cholesterol. My question is what's the paleo take on this? Thanks.

I was raised on a farm, and I used to work hard as a kid and I would be hungry at lunch. I had a "don't ask don't tell" policy on what was usually in the soup. I don't go out of my way to eat intestines, but I won't turn them away,... (more)

It's simple: if not eating non-grassfed/naturally raised offal means never eating offal, then by all means, eat the conventionally raised offal. However, there are better options, even in conventionally raised -- for example, I would probably... (more)

yes, bother with it. the liver detoxifies the animal, but it doesn't store toxins, that's sort of a myth. liver doesn't have much fat, so worrying about the fatty acid composition isn't really worth it. eat that liver!

H-Mart in Catonsville is a good choice. They have all sorts of cuts of meat, seafood, and crazy produce. While not all organic or grass-fed, they've got good stuff cheap. I've also been pretty successful at most of the farmer's markets.

I get offal from the Farmer's market (grass fed beef innards), Asian market (duck gizzards, pork hearts), and a Mediterranean store (all kinds of goat/sheep innards, including tripe) close to where I live in the Bay Area.
