Organ Meat Questions
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.
Recently, I found a great local grass fed beef farmer, can't believe how easy it was to find! Anyways, I've been looking at the prices and it seems fairly expensive, but the cheapest cuts are offal such as heart, tongue, kidney, and liver. These... (more)
Vitamin/mineral toxicity is a concern, because organ meats are very nutrient dense (not that that is a bad thing, most people don't eat enough organ meant and organ meat was how we got our daily quotas of all our nutrients before the advent of... (more)
Hello, I'm a 19 year old female just starting recovery from anorexia. Because of long distance running, perscribed Adderall, and inadequate intake for a long long time, my resting heartrate has dropped to around 20-30, blood pressure is a little... (more)
So I made a huge order of meats livers and soup bones from Slanker meats and they were delivered today. One of the chicken livers was partially unthawed and one package of soup bones slightly unthawed. Can I refreeze the liver or do I just have... (more)
When I started eating liver, I was only eating it in pate form. During that time though, I was still eating bread occasionally and had the pate with it. After a while I started enjoying whole livers instead of pate, and to this day I still eat... (more)
So we all know the benefits of having your weekly (or twice weekly for the fanatics :) )portion of liver. Well here's the thing... Over here in Dubai, but I'm sure many people find themselves in a similar situation, grass-fed, let alone organic... (more)
I'm now happily eating a variety of organ meats, but I looked a variety of them up on http://nutritiondata.self.com/, and I found that heart, kidney, and liver are marked as "moderately/strongly inflammatory." However, the spleen is marked as... (more)
It's about the body's inflammatory cascade. Weighing out Omega 3 vs. Omega 6 and the pathway your body uses to break down the nutrients. Arachadonic acid is in both red meat and dairy and perpetuates inflammation
So other than the usual stuff people eat (beef, chicken, pork, etc.), do you have any favorites that you've tried? I don't find these often, but I really love: Elk, Yak, Ostrich, and Tasmanian Ocean Trout (raw; this is something I've found at... (more)
I know liver...but what else? And should I just get my sources from Whole Foods or a better place? Should it just be beef organ meats? On that note, once I do find my sources of whatever organ meats you deem important, I don't know if I can eat... (more)
OK the thought of brains and liver kind of freaks me out - but if I were going to start incorporating some real Paleo foods like this into my diet - what to ask the butcher for first, and how to prepare it to ease myself into stuff like this? I... (more)
I've tried preparing beef liver and I can't eat it but I enjoy US Wellness grassfed beef Liverwurst and Braunschweiger. They contain liver (from grassfed cows) the liverwurst has beef heart in it as well and maybe kidneys if I'm not mistaken. It's... (more)
I saut??ed and ate liver for the very first time today, and I honestly like it very much. I was tempted to eat what was left over for dinner, but I refrained because in all my reading about paleo diets, no one seems to eat liver more than a few... (more)
I find that I automaticly gets put off from eating to much liver. It just doesent taste good after more than 300-400 g. When I havent consumed it for 4-5 days it tastes good again :)
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.
Anyone have any good recipes for beef heart? I know some of it is based on how lean it is but the Fitday info is quite good and it is really tasty. I've fast fried it with yams and butter and I made Fajitas with it. Anyone have any info,... (more)
Where do you get organ meats and which ones do you like? I'm interested in starting to eat them.... I do all of my shopping at organic grocery stores and I don't even know where to start.
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.
Does Strassburger brand liverwurst tastes good, is it worth buying? http://www.boarshead.com/digicatessen.php?productCode=368 Does anyone know what the ingredients are? I did not see them listed in the link above. Update: I finally bought some... (more)
I read somewhere that it used to be said that you should eat what ails you. So if you have a bad heart, eat heart. If you have a bad kidney, eat kidney, etc. Has anyone else followed this? I am considering trying to get some (nonhuman) brain to... (more)
Everyone keeps telling me to eat liver and seafood. I just can't. I hate everything about them. The texture, the smell, the taste. I even hate tuna. What are some good alternatives to get similar nutrients into my body? I eat my fair share of beef... (more)
I have been doing IF for some 4-5 years now, but I notice that it is even easier to fast when I have recently consumed liver... 1: Do you have any thoughts as to why this might work? (I have mine, and I'll share them below) 2: Would you be more... (more)
I experienced the same thing when I made a slow-cooked stew that included beef heart. I attributed it to nutrient density; the low-density meals don't last long and the high-density meals last me about 24 hours.
this might be a really stupid question lol many people say that red meat is healthier than pigs/chickens (of which i still have to ask why in another thread), so is "red meat" a category for the animal type, like cow and sheeps, the grass-eating... (more)
I just found a source near my house for grassfed beef by the half, quarter, or eighth of a cow for between $5 and $8 per pound, and they'll ship it to me! BanderasGrassland They'll throw in organ meats for $3/lb. I'm looking at going in on a half... (more)
Hi all. I am wondering if it's possible to be allergic against organ meat, especially liver? My entire face is covered in tiny pimples, when looking in a specific angle in the mirror i notice i am all over them! I have eaten grass fed... (more)
I'm fully aware of how nutritious organ meat is and it's often cheaper than muscle meat, and there are some Middle Eastern, Mexican, and Asian markets in my area that sell virtually every type of organ meat imaginable. Which organ meats are best... (more)
I'm finally not concerned about which foods I should eat, so now I get to worry about things like vitamins and minerals! I don't take any supplements in addition to my food and I'm not showing any signs of deficiencies, but I'd like to clear some... (more)
I'm enjoying eating those organ meats and other non-muscle meat parts of cows and pigs. I'm curious to know the vitamin and mineral content of such "odd bits" to see if I can validate what I've heard a few times - that one can get all nutrients... (more)
