For years I had a peculiar reaction to salmon: I threw up the oil. Just the oil. Every time. In the past several years, I have been able to greatly reduce this by only eating wild salmon, which makes me think that it was the oil in the farmed... (more)
Olive oil has some PUFAS, which degrade rather quickly. Most people don't seem to know this and they buy olive oil in clear containers and don't bother shielding it from the light. A properly stored cold pressed olive oil is a world away from the... (more)
I was looking to buy some frozen wild sockeye from Trader Joe's which is always Alaskan. However, the ones I saw today are labeled "Wild" but they are now imported from Russia. WTF?I've never even heard of Russian sockeye. Tried to Google it and... (more)

I'd love to try this recipe (scroll to the bottom of the story), but this is made for a pressure cooker and I only have a crockpot. I love milkfish and mackerel, but they are very bony and it is kind of a hassle to... (more)
Surely paleo man could identify the organs of different animals, after some personal attempts that only left me feeling frustrated I've come in hopes of finding a good samaritan with a knowledge of anatomy, hopefully marine anatomy! Does... (more)
I found the thyroid, it is almost immediately below the gills right before the heart. It is round, like a ball in fresh sardines and it is the size of a rain drop.
Hey I'm looking for articles, studies, or more importantly anecdotes about the whole mercury poisoning issue from fish. I had heard supposedly they found that even in the arctic regions where people are living off supposedly the worst of the... (more)
Hello. I'm a foreigner new to this site, and also a lightweight follower of the Paleo way of life who's trying to become closer to heavy-weight, in order to get rid of this heavy weight, lol. Anyhow, here's my question: What are the cheapest... (more)
I was reading something on the perfect health website about too much omega 3 and fish oils causing problems and I noticed the article said 1lb fish a week as a safe limit. I eat 200g oily fish (usually sprats, sometimes sardines) every other... (more)
I want to spend less money by eating less and I feel like fatty cuts of meat are the way to go to feel satiated. What are some fatty cuts of meat and some fatty fish I can buy?
For joints, you want to be consuming high quality fish oil along with regular consumption of collagen-based foods such as broths and stocks. With regard to finding a high quality fish oil, I don't find the type of fish is of too much importance,... (more)
Hey guys. I have got a bit more money rec ently and this has afforded me the luxury od eating how I want to eat. A couple years ago I lived in spain for awhile and my diet consisted soley of fruit and fish. I was living with my uncle at his... (more)
Yeah, I know you won't believe me, but hear me out: I started realizing a lot of what I was eating on the Paleo diet--fish, liver, safe starches, and of course, the good, fatty, gelatinous "by-products" of animals--are found right in the cans of... (more)
Has anyone here used bone broth to quell symptoms of arthritis, rheumatoid and/or osteo? If so, what was your experience, and do you have any tips or suggestions? I have severe rheumatoid and osteo arthritis and will soon be drinking lots of... (more)
So just wondering how most of you go about getting that wonderful omega 3 and Vit D, balancing food and supplements etc. I bought some cod liver oil (seven seas brand) and Vitamin D-3 (Now foods, 5,000 iu) and don't want to have too much of the... (more)
@CD - Note that the darker your skin is, the more sun you need for vitamin D production, due to melanin antagonizing the process. The sun is a harsh mistress to black appartment-dwellers. :(
Canned tuna can start with a fish that is cooked whole (oil leaks out) then is deboned - then the "loins" are frozen - then shipped to china - thawed, put in a can, recooked - then shipped to USA. After all this, the Tuna loin becomes "least"... (more)
Hi all. I used a crockpot for the first time recently, just to cook vegetables. I was really pleased with the results. The vegetables were much more flavoursome and retained more moisture compared to when I cook them in an oven. I was thinking... (more)
I always get weird acne in places never before and oddly when I take fish oil. I mean the brand I take is a weird cheapo Walmart brand that doesnt expire until 01/16, but it seems pretty pure, just fish and glycerin. I've heard a lot of other... (more)
So, yesterday I was at the market and I passed this stall that was selling monkfish livers. I'd never heard of anyone eating monkfish liver before but I thought it sounded interesting, so I bought one. I brought it home and fried it (in... (more)
I've been opposed to eating seafood my whole life. Not for a particularly good reason either; my dad didn't eat it, I was a daddy's girl, so I didn't either. As my Primal journey is progressing and I've learned that I like a lot of things I... (more)
Wild salmon, mackerel and sardines are all on my menu. Not to mention an array of shellfish. I love lobster, scallops, crab, prawns (shrimp) etc I live on a small island, so we get better access than a lot of places to seafood.
The bones of canned fish usually soft owing to the high pressure storage inside the can. So if you want your fish bones to be soft, you would have to pressure cook it. There are several fish recipes that you can cook using a pressure cooker, but... (more)
Is there any detailed information on how prone to heat oxidation PUFAs are? Many paleo resources suggest that fish (as a source of PUFAs) should be cooked for a long time at lower temperatures to prevent oxidation. But will it help? As far as I... (more)
