Hi. I didn't see any similar questions, so I'm throwing this one out to any other offal lovers. Since going paleo, what offal and other "odd" animal bits have you tried? C'mon, don't be shy :P Here's my list, from head to tail: brain: pork,... (more)
Hey all, Recently I've been trying to get into eating a lot of organ meats, with some success. My goal is to maximize nutrient intake, but in a balanced way (and staying well below toxicity levels). I've noticed that (according to my nutrition... (more)
I'd like to eat organ meats but it makes me uncomfortable. I think I could get used to liver spread but I don't think I could prepare those items myself. I realize that we shouldn't be eating processed foods but is there something which I can buy... (more)
Hi, I've been Paleo for almost three weeks. I started it to treat an immune dysfunction that's probably due to inflammation. I'm being very strict. No eggs, no nightshades, and only ghee for dairy. I have three questions and would love some help... (more)
I would skip the nuts as much as you can... omega 6s as well as gut irritants. If you can find it you may wanna try veal liver, it's waaaaaay more palatable than beef liver. good luck!
I live in Dubai and now we can buy grass fed beef in the supermarkets, however the organ meat is very unlikely to be grass fed, and if it is they do not say it is. I want to get more liver and heart in my diet, but would i be wasting my time... (more)
Hi all, just wondering if anyone would know the relationship between method(s) of preparation of various foods containing cholesterol and its oxidization. I am spcifically interested in prep methods to reduce O2 Chol. in organ meat. Currently I am... (more)
Hi all, I am wondering if I am over-consuming organ meats with an early grave on the horizon. Care to check out my diet and give some feedback: Diet PWO #1 (1st MEAL): Sea Salt(1 tsp.) Vitamin C(500 mg.), Vitamin D(800 i.u.) Shredded... (more)
Does boiling organ meats reduce nutrient quality(assuming that they are cooked an 'equivalent' to other preparatory methods, ie. such that the organ is of a similar texture/colour)? I had experimented today with some pig kidneys/liver and they... (more)
Or, is it just generally better to eat organ meat on any diet?
I ask mainly out of ignorance of, and aversion to, preparation of beef liver (for example). Have no idea what to do with it and not sure I'd find the results pleasing. I see Dr. Ron's has (expensive) supplement products. Worthwhile? How about Cod... (more)
I came across a couple of articles that made me think that some things that are definitely Paleo, but I would never accept them. I mean, I know that some Koreans consumed dog meat in the past - I would try some if I could. I have tried Scottish... (more)

I've looked around but seriously haven't been able to find much info about eating fish organs. All I know of is Weston price's documentation of old Gaelics who put special emphasis on eating baked cod liver head stuffed with cod liver and oats.... (more)
I'm no expert, but my husband fishes, and always eats the liver and heart raw, right away, and the eggs if there are any...I've been lucky enough to taste these organs right away, and compared to other offal, they have a very mild flavor...barely... (more)
A fallacy in the past with fat tissue (adipose tissue) was that it was simply viewed as just a collection of fat cells - a storage center for future energy requirements. In fact, the adipose tissue should also be viewed as the largest endocrine... (more)
there is one immutable fact we now know to define optimal. Its telomere length. The longer means optimal. Now we need to figure out what makes them longest. That is why I go to meetings now. Its why I read three hours a day.
Eating from nose to tail means getting lots more fat than you would if you only ate the muscle, because bones and organs have a lot of fat. Or so I read in many paleo articles/threads. Bone marrow is essentially all fat. But organs? A serving... (more)
Hi all, what certain nutrients are in organ parts such as liver, tongue, and brain, that may be available in certain kinds of supplements? What nutrients are we missing by not eating a lot of organ meats?
