Have you experimented with raw meat paleo? What was your experience? How did you get use to the raw meat? Gradually?
I'm unsure if I will try it, though I eat most of my meat rare already. I'm curious about the health benefits, because I see so much improvement in the raw dogs/cats!
Peggy would be a great source if you're interested:
I cook most my meat very rare, and am known to plop a couple pieces in my mouth raw while I prepare the meal. It is quite odd how good raw steak actually does taste. I eat sushi (sashimi) on a weekly basis and some bivalves raw.
I'd say moving toward rare then going raw would help transfer. Eating more "accepted" things like sushi and steak tartar perhaps. Or, if your up for it just go whole hog and give it a try. Like Josh mentions I find the digestion to be quite a bit better with uncooked meat....
Very interesting! Thank you for the references!
I just took parasitology so I am having a little trouble wrapping my head around this. However, with quality grass-fed meat, are you super worried about parasites? Do you freeze all of your meat?
I've eaten raw meat and animal parts, raw honey, raw fruits and vegetables, and nuts heavily for a 9 month period. At the time, I was very strict because I thought I had to be to heal my brain. However, I found out a more major cause to my brain damage, which I'm sure all of you suffer from, but I won't say here cause you wouldn't believe me if I told you. Now, I've been feeling better, and just want to be normal, and start eating and living the Standard American diet life (you can only have power if you know how to enter and exit the matrix). I'm going to start going back to eating raw meat and fruits/vegetables. It is 100% obvious just from empirical evidence that our bodies digest raw food WAY better and UTILIZE food WAY BETTER than cooked food. Just try it. No ones ever gotten sick from eating raw meat, only better, and it's mind boggeling that we blame every little sickness from uncooked food. Whatever is on the tv or mainstream or considered common sense knowledge, seems to be inherently wrong, but it is nonetheless the matrix, or "a game" that is very real and it's probably a good idea to play along.
Yes Peggy theprimalparent has great info. I eat most of my meat raw, steak, hamburger, liver. My 14 year old son and my 12 year old daughter love raw meat too, in fact my daughter prefers it over cooked now. We find it easy to digest, it does not sit heavy in the stomach. For steak we cut it up thin add some sea salt & pepper then eat it. Liver we all like raw as it just slides down and you really do not taste it at all, the kids do not like it cooked.
I boil almost all of my meats, which is the most "gentle" method of cooking next to steaming. Everything tastes better boiled in my opinion.
I eat my fish raw, but I prefer the taste of cooked meat, so I don't eat my land meats raw.
Growing up in an asian household (grandmother from okinawa, mother from the philippines), i've eaten a LOT of raw fish. Recently, a friend of mine served beef sashimi. Intrigued, i tried it. Delicious. Do it.
I went through a phase of this. I found a bit of salt and a raw egg yolk to be a very nice sauce over beef.
Raw chicken though- it already tastes rotten. Trying it raw has made me like even roast chicken less, and I worry more about sourcing it properly.
But what happens is you can't get as much nutrition out of the meat as you can when you cook it, so you need more of it raw. Trying to eat raw can easily end up taking up more time and money than cooking does. So far, nothing beats getting a large crock pot and slow roasting a lot of meat at once so you can have it throughout the week.
I'm all for the occasional raw dish; I just didn't see it working out for me over the long term. Many of the really pro-raw eaters also drink raw milk, so they may be managing to get the extra nutrition and calories from there.
My good friend has been eating raw meat for years. She has a lot of positive outlooks on eating raw meat. Raw meat is easy to digest, she used to suffer from indigestion terribly and hasn't after switching to raw meat. Raw meat actually has more vitamins than cooked meat and contains enzymes for digestion. Sounds like it might be something worth trying out if you're already interested!
