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 live in Pasadena, CA. I recently discovered that if I purchase pork belly at around $5.60 or less per pound it would be cheaper and healthier than if I kept buying the nitrite/ate free bacon from Trader Joe's. My girlfriend and I have a bacon... (more)

Hey guys, So I've been on paleo for almost 3 weeks now, and I'm aware that while I'm eating paleo I am probably not eating the healthiest foods yet. Please critique my diet. ALSO, I am fit (15% body fat) and not trying to lose weight. I just want... (more)

do pork rinds contain high levels of msg? my friend said that they have been known to cause lucid dreams so i did some research and it said that this was because the high level of msg in them.
Good pork rinds should only contain pork skin and salt. I have never seen MSG on the label. I just googled and found some brands with "flavored" pork rinds that do contain MSG. So be careful.
enter code hereI want to eat bacon, but it has a strong smell of pork that people in my house hates the smell of the bacon. There is a way to fry or cook the bacon without smoke (smell) at all?
I've got a hunk of pork shoulder, maybe 3 or 4 lbs. I need to cook it in less than 4 hours, in my oven. I'd like to add a rub, wet or dry, to the meat to give it some flavor. I also think some sort of sauce would be nice (particularly if it's a... (more)

I have a pig liver in my freezer from a pig I split with my friend (from a local farm down the road). What's the best way to cook/eat it? I also have some pig skin and some other random organs... Any site recommendations for recipes?
For those that have tried each or some what are you thoughts on them? Nutrition, taste, price? I have an option of getting 2lbs of pasture raised pork liver for $10. But somewhere in my head I'm thinking I should stick with chicken or beef... (more)

Crock pot. Slab of pork belly that fits in the bottom. Season with whatever you want, but salt and a tiny bit of honey seems to be magic. On low for 6-8 hours. Slice, pan sear in the fat that accumulates in the bottom of the crock pot. So delicious! (more)
So, I want to diversify my animal eating(currently consuming mostly grass fed beef from a side of beef), and a local farm sells pork sides, but he grain feeds(with local VT grain) his pigs. Should I pass, or go for it since it's a local... (more)
If the price is right and the pigs are humanely raised, I'd go for it. Pigs aren't grass-eaters, I believe they just kinda eat whatever they find; it would probably be pretty tough to find affordable pork that feeds exclusively on forage.
Recently, Jaminet wrote on the issues with pork, which are some good points. I would eat my pork well done, due to the possible pathogenic infections. There are a few other interesting other ideas recently proposed. Dr. Kaayla Daniel points out... (more)
Allright so this a weird thing. About two weeks ago I noticed a pungent odor and blamed it on an extended stay at the inlaws. A week later... it's still here. I noticed today that while eating a piece of pork I smelled a similar smell. Problem... (more)
I have spent the last year and a half eating primally and experimenting with this and I've finally figured out that eating pork really just doesn't agree with my stomach, but I don't understand why. I know that there is more polyunsaturated fat... (more)
