Hi I am curious about trying other organ meats besides liver or kidney. These 2 I have tried and, frankly, don't sit well with me. I'm curious for example does stomach taste like liver? What about intestines or tongue? These would be... (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.
Aside from fats that are important co-factors for many vitamins and nutrients, how much, if any nutritional benefit is lost in taking dessicated (powdered) organs like liver, heart, thyroid etc?
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've recently been thinking about what it means to be an organ donor, in the context of a healthy life. I'm not sure my organs are in great shape, but I think I should still change my license to donate. Does your religion prohibit organ donation? (more)
I'd like to add more seafood to my Paleo diet, and as part of this I've tried cooking the whole fish a couple times but to be honest I really don't know what I'm doing... Hopefully there's a fish monger on here that can enlighten me? I know that... (more)
What was the reasons organs became unpopular? Liver makes sense. What about the others? Especially in the US, when and why did we switch exclusively to consuming only muscle meats?
I own hundreds of cookbooks from different eras and I think offal sort of hits the back-burner in the 1920s or 1930s when the cattle industry consolidates, making relatively cheap pre-packaged easy-to-cook muscle meats available and leading... (more)
Im surprised that I like this fish head stew recipe. I think I would have dry heaved thinking about eating a fish's head before. Super cheap too. http://donmatesz.blogspot.com/2011/01/my-meals-budget-primal-fish-head-soup.html I also really dig... (more)
Not so much a what I eat but when I eat them. I wouldn't have really considered sardines or steak for breakfast before I started paleo; but now anything's game.
Hi, my question is: does a limited diet furnish adequate nutrition to sustain life and-perhaps- to enable one to thrive? A proposed diet is as follows: Cheese(hard cheese preferably) eggs(free-range) butter(pastured/cultured) liver(or other organ... (more)
I ordered a box of ground up grass-fed beef organs(heart, liver, kidney, lung-trachea, tongue, spleen, and cheek meat) from a meat company that delivers near where I live(creston valley meats). It specifically says it's for dogs, but is there any... (more)
I read a lot of good things about organ meats and wouldn't mind eating it. I'm just concerned with some issues, which I don't know are totally true: BSE/'Mad Cows Disease' and equivalents. The prions causing this disease are said to be in organ... (more)
There are many threads on here about how some folks just cannot learn to like beef liver no matter how they prepare the organ---masking recipes and marinades, spicy raw shakes, holding the nose and just choking it down, or even slipping it into... (more)
When wild, meat-eating animals make a kill, what organs do they most prefer to eat? Does a single animal, say, prefer liver one day, but then specifically goes for heart the next, and yet another organ on another day? Or do they have a hierarchy... (more)
Today I saw that in the asian food shop they sell chicken hearts and livers. Two questions: Is it a good idea to try these? Or is it meant as cat and dog food? Do you have any favorite recipes or ideas on how to prepare them?
There have been a few posts about how nutritious liver and other organ meats are. So at the Farmer's Market this weekend I picked up a beef heart. The vendor said you can slice it and cook it like a steak (heart is muscle, after all), but I'm a... (more)
I've been cruising the offal/organ meats threads, and I'm not seeing anyone mentioning gizzards. Personally, I love the things, and frying up some chicken gizzards, livers and hearts for dinner has been dubbed "Chicken Bits" at my house. Are they... (more)
Organs keep exploding when I microwave them. Some cooked kidneys diced into squares, reheated for not more than 2 minutes, exploded so much as to knock a paper towel off that was covering the bowel and make a large mess. I've had similar... (more)
If one was over-fat and mal-nourished, then subsequently turned their health around with proper nutrition, weight bearing exercise and supplements (magnesium, D, K2), is it possible to weigh more, but measurements and body fat percentage remain... (more)
What are some of the less popular or unusual organs out there to try other than the well known brain, liver, kidneys, marrow and tongue? I'm interested in those that we only very rarely hear about, yet would be a regular part of a traditional... (more)
Cant say about testosterone or any other nutrients, but Testes are one of the tastiest, creamiest part of the animal - Just stir fried with lots of butter, skin removed.
I'm buying the entire cow, previously only purchase halves/quarters. On these I could request steak thickness but not really much else and just got a mix of steak/roast/ground/stew If you were giving specific instructions to a butcher. For... (more)
How much offal is too much offal to eat? (For the average person, I know n=1 everyone is different, etc.) I am fortunate to live in a plentiful land (that goes by the name Argentina) where there is lots of meat and offal of every type in every... (more)
Hi fellow Brits, Hoping someone can shed a little light on this for me. I know that Morrisons makes a big deal about being the only UK supermarket whose in-house butcher uses only British meat. However, I'm not sure about what this means in terms... (more)
I have terrible skin, it's dry, red, uneven, slight acne, dark circles etc As skin is an organ does this mean my other organs are suffering too, i just can't see it? (other than how i feel of course)
it's hard to phrase, but in the "wild", how do predators (either man or animal) eat their prey. in a blog about bone marrow, sisson states that the order is marrow, liver, kidney's heart, muscle meat... leaving out all sorts of parts such as the... (more)
Keep in mind, the order of which is consumed would be in line with the greater amount of energy gained though consumption with the least expended through the process. It would depend on which animal is eating which.
Hi Guys, I am after the anecdote of Australian Aborigines preference for every organ and entrails of an animal over the muscle meat? It may be from Western Price Thank you.
They say different yogasanas helps massages internal organ while the others say it's just intuitive conclusions. As in doing camel pose, they sometimes say you get your ovary "stretched and massaged" - is it really possible? What do you people think? (more)
