I am looking to add some pork to my diet. I have the option of fresh pork (pork chops, shoulder, etc.) or nitrate/nitrite free sausages and bacon (AppleGate farms and a few others I can't think of off the top of my head). What is better to... (more)

I have had horrible headaches after eating fresh pork products before. Unsure whether it was because it was conventional or if it was some issue with pork itself. Once a week, however, I eat bacon from a local organic farm and I feel pretty good... (more)

I've been buying pastured pork at the farmer's market for the past several weeks -- pork chops. Tonight, there was a big difference in the smell and taste -- kind of gamey. I've written to the farmer but in the interim, I'm wondering if this... (more)

It can taste gamy, and generally, the gamier the taste the more pastured it is. Acorn finished pigs have bright red, gamy, leaner meat (they have to go up and down hills), not far from the taste of a wild boar of course. Go for gamy, if you care... (more)

Hi guys! I was wondering about bacon! It's clearly something a lot of people who eat paleo eat! Is there a certain type to eat/not eat?? And presumably it's best to not eat too regularly or is that mainly up to how much you feel is enough?

Paleo gets a little too hung up on grass-fed and organic. Grass-fed is great, but 100% grass-fed isn't necessary - some grain is fine in a cow's diet. Even more is fine for chicken and pigs (they're not grazing animals, they forage.) Organic...... (more)

It is very similar to beef heart, and I agree with suggestions. To tenderize, marinate. Ginger is something that will soften the meat. I hesitate to recommend poaching or stewing because heart has no fat and does not tenderize like fatty, tough... (more)
