Now I've never been a girlie girl,...far from it actually, but I think the paleo lifestyle has definitely toughen me mentally. A year ago we started raw feeding 4 dogs,...an expensive and time consuming venture for sure. To keep costs low I beg and borrow to get free and cheap meat - almost a part time job. I have stopped short of picking up freshly hit goose on the side of the road, but I sure did have to think about it. Had it not been on such a busy street I probably would have. The other night I had a butcher call and say he had the innards of 3 hogs just killed the day before If I wanted to come pick them up. No idea what we were getting into - but curious, I picked up the 3 trash bags and we spent a fun Friday night stinking up our kitchen playing "Guess the Organ" and deciding what we wanted to keep. Big Fun. Yes that's a liver and stomach in the dish rack (everything was sanitized!)
A while back I didn't want to watch the shows Dirty Jobs or Bizzare Foods while we were eating dinner so as not to gross us out,...now I don't even blink at such things.
How has Paleo toughen you? (other than physically)
Do you have problems handling offal? I know a lot of people come from vegetarian or vegan lifestyle - that has to be an adjustment. Probably not at all for those who were hunters previously.
Are you more straight forward with people and wants now that you are Paleo?
