Organ Meat Questions
I'm finally not concerned about which foods I should eat, so now I get to worry about things like vitamins and minerals! I don't take any supplements in addition to my food and I'm not showing any signs of deficiencies, but I'd like to clear some... (more)
So other than the usual stuff people eat (beef, chicken, pork, etc.), do you have any favorites that you've tried? I don't find these often, but I really love: Elk, Yak, Ostrich, and Tasmanian Ocean Trout (raw; this is something I've found at... (more)
I know liver...but what else? And should I just get my sources from Whole Foods or a better place? Should it just be beef organ meats? On that note, once I do find my sources of whatever organ meats you deem important, I don't know if I can eat... (more)
Okay this might seem like a silly question, but I'm wondering if there are many examples of eating specific organ meats being good for that specific organ in your body. For example: Liver: Liver appears to be one of, if not the richest source... (more)
I saut??ed and ate liver for the very first time today, and I honestly like it very much. I was tempted to eat what was left over for dinner, but I refrained because in all my reading about paleo diets, no one seems to eat liver more than a few... (more)
I find that I automaticly gets put off from eating to much liver. It just doesent taste good after more than 300-400 g. When I havent consumed it for 4-5 days it tastes good again :)
I would call myself a foodie and before paleo loved to eat at authentic "ethnic" restaurants from around the world. I love to try new things and enjoy traveling. I came from a vegetarian background before paleo and am new to cooking meat, but... (more)
Where do you get organ meats and which ones do you like? I'm interested in starting to eat them.... I do all of my shopping at organic grocery stores and I don't even know where to start.
I get offal from the Farmer's market (grass fed beef innards), Asian market (duck gizzards, pork hearts), and a Mediterranean store (all kinds of goat/sheep innards, including tripe) close to where I live in the Bay Area.
I've gotten around to eating organ meats now thanks to US Wellness Liverwurst. I hear frequently I should eat it at least once a week. Typically, I eat .5lbs of meat a day. Should I be eating that much of it?
Is there a reason to buy them grassfed/pastured? -Chicken -Beef -Pork -Lamb -Duck -Veal Livers hearts Kidneys (not so sure about the normal cows/pigs.) Gizzard (chicken, turkey) Tripe (beef) Tongue i.e. Chicken Liver/gizzards are about $1-2... (more)
I have been doing IF for some 4-5 years now, but I notice that it is even easier to fast when I have recently consumed liver... 1: Do you have any thoughts as to why this might work? (I have mine, and I'll share them below) 2: Would you be more... (more)
I experienced the same thing when I made a slow-cooked stew that included beef heart. I attributed it to nutrient density; the low-density meals don't last long and the high-density meals last me about 24 hours.
since conventional farms feed animals grains to fatten them up, does it mean grass-fed muscle meats and their organ meats are leaner? i'm especially wondering about organ meats because that's all i eat and i'm thinking about switching to all... (more)
this might be a really stupid question lol many people say that red meat is healthier than pigs/chickens (of which i still have to ask why in another thread), so is "red meat" a category for the animal type, like cow and sheeps, the grass-eating... (more)
I just found a source near my house for grassfed beef by the half, quarter, or eighth of a cow for between $5 and $8 per pound, and they'll ship it to me! BanderasGrassland They'll throw in organ meats for $3/lb. I'm looking at going in on a half... (more)
Hello, I'm a 19 year old female just starting recovery from anorexia. Because of long distance running, perscribed Adderall, and inadequate intake for a long long time, my resting heartrate has dropped to around 20-30, blood pressure is a little... (more)
So I made a huge order of meats livers and soup bones from Slanker meats and they were delivered today. One of the chicken livers was partially unthawed and one package of soup bones slightly unthawed. Can I refreeze the liver or do I just have... (more)
I'm fully aware of how nutritious organ meat is and it's often cheaper than muscle meat, and there are some Middle Eastern, Mexican, and Asian markets in my area that sell virtually every type of organ meat imaginable. Which organ meats are best... (more)
When I started eating liver, I was only eating it in pate form. During that time though, I was still eating bread occasionally and had the pate with it. After a while I started enjoying whole livers instead of pate, and to this day I still eat... (more)
I'm now happily eating a variety of organ meats, but I looked a variety of them up on http://nutritiondata.self.com/, and I found that heart, kidney, and liver are marked as "moderately/strongly inflammatory." However, the spleen is marked as... (more)
It's about the body's inflammatory cascade. Weighing out Omega 3 vs. Omega 6 and the pathway your body uses to break down the nutrients. Arachadonic acid is in both red meat and dairy and perpetuates inflammation
I just opened up my package of grass fed lamb livers I received from my local rancher. I first noticed that they really didn't have a smell...until I started cutting into it. Now I think they smell faintly fruity--like plums. Anyone else share... (more)
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)
Everyone keeps telling me to eat liver and seafood. I just can't. I hate everything about them. The texture, the smell, the taste. I even hate tuna. What are some good alternatives to get similar nutrients into my body? I eat my fair share of beef... (more)
Even before I switched to Paleo, I have always heard that organ meats are insanely healthly and everyone could benefit from them...but my problem is, I have never, ever had a bite of organ meat in my life. Mommy focused on chicken, lean beef, lean... (more)
