I've honestly yet to find ANYTHING that it won't liquefy. Seriously. Mangos? Pit and all. Salmon skin? Pfffft. Done. Note to those concerned, I evolved into leangains in may, adding tuber or rice carb feeds post workout. I've leaned out below 8% BF that way. Still eat a ton of meat, but for some reason my body stopped craving the raw, but wanted lightly rare-cooked. I got a sous vide controller, set it for 125-130F, ziplock the meat, immerse in a water bath, and "cook" for 24hrs. Kills any bacteria, comes out rarer roast beef perfection!

Liquify anything? what about raw salmon skin? I am considering this very same blender, and if you haven't already tried this, then I would earnestly ask you if you could and let me know. Youre my hero! CARNIVORE POWER! (or something like that)

Warring MX1050XT11 is the most gnarly, powerful, durable, usable, badass peice of kitchen equipment I own. Well, I love my Auber Insteuments Sous Vide Controller for perfect low temp crock pot meat too. I digress. This blender will totally and effortlessly LIQUIFY ANYTHING in 30 seconds.

Raw seems to digest more slowly, yet somehow more easily, with a smaller rise in insulin. The blender (3.5 HP!) frees the meat protein from the less digestible collagen tissue, and emulsifies the fat nicely. If I'm concerned with bacteria (never with the lamb, which was frozen on slaughter and kept that way to my kitchen) I spray with a water-grapefruit seed extract and let sit, then wash.

Started this Jan. Life changing. Moods, concentration, even feeling; got my soul back. Was fish-chicken with very occasional lamb, rice, and veggies (no beef) for years. First time I sat down to beef BBQ in Jan, I ate well over a kilo. I live in Tokyo. Very clean food prep practices. I buy frozen blocks of NZ mutton. NZ lamb is grass fed and chemical free, and slaughtering practices are clean. The beef I get is Aussie. Slaughtering much cleaner than American. Grass fed grain finished. I throw it in a commercial blender with raw garlic and guzzle. Easy.

The government does testing of samples throughout the country, so I just check the results and avoid the foods and regions that have positive results. Certain foods are likely to be contaminated: spinach, tea, renkon, and to a lesser degree, beef and pork. But, there is a lot of imported food, and it's bizarrely cheaper than Japanese food. So that's a win.

Mussels, grilled shrimp, bratwursts, fried calfs liver and onions, and an 8-piece chicken. Kind of an eclectic mix even for me. I basically cooked what I happened to have on hand and sounded good to me at the time.

I went to a Brazilian BBQ joint last night and at close to five pounds of meat.......so much that could not eat breakfast for the first time in six years.

For lunch I made cream of pumpkin soup with nutmeg, cinammon, ginger, macademia nut oil, red onions, prosciutto, and some butter. I also ground up fresh rosemary, basil, sage, and cilantro.

For Dinner I got hungry and at two slabs of Halibut cooked in CO and with a coconut sauternes sauce and the bowl of the remainder of the soup.

That did it.

Breakfast: 220 grams of raw, fatty mutton and a tablespoon of fish oil.

Lunch: 220 grams of raw, fatty mutton and a tablespoon of coconut oil.

Dinner: 100 grams of raw beef liver, 110 grams of raw, fatty beef, 25 grams of rendered tallow.

Why? Because it makes me feel awesome!

A few times per week I skip lunch and double dinner. 5 days a week just beef, no liver, for dinner. A few times per week, add lightly saut??ed greens for dinner.

2 eggs over easy with a sweet potato for breakfast.

Then I got stuck at cheerleading with my daughter for way too long when the team before us went into OT and then our game rain delayed, so I was STARVING. Luckily, when I left I went to Starbucks and got the fruit and cheese platter. It was over priced, but better than hitting McDonald's drive thru like most of the parents.

Dinner was a broiled pork chop, mashed potatoes and green beans.

Finale was dandelion tea and some Lindt 85% dark chocolate.

Dinner - chicken breast baked in bacon dripping, garlic, and jalepenos. I just threw some stuff together that I had in my fridge.

Dessert - paleo hot chocolate made from coconut cream, cocoa powder, and a bit of stevia. I was really wanting some chocolate and didn't have anything but cocoa powder, so I got creative.

Lunch: 4 slices of hickory smoked pork tenderloin butt roast and some mango avocado salad.

Dinner: skipped; I wasn't hungry.

Snacks: a piece of beef jerky two or three times.

Why? It was in the front part of the fridge and that's what I grabbed on my way out the door.

Coconut curry chicken soup for lunch and tamago-yaki+spam for dinner. The soup had onion and cabbage in it. Later I'll have a couple of coconut milk lattes.

I chose the soup because I was getting really bored with the other stuff I'd been eating (mostly combinations of meat and guacamole), the tamago-yaki because I was getting bored with other ways of cooking eggs and eggs are cheap, and the spam because it's imported into Japan, where I live, and therefore less likely to have radionuclides in it than local bacon or sausage.

Almost all my food choices aim to balance three factors: paleoishness, cost and having as few radionuclides as possible.
