I found some great pate at my local Sprouts. Short ingredient list (like pork liver, pork, spices/veggies) no wheat, looks good to me... I know it's almost certainly not from organic, pastured pigs but it's an extremely convenient, affordable, and seemingly healthy condiment. Also has a nice fatty acid profile...
I'm tempted to start eating it a few times a week. Any really good reasons not to?
Reason: I started making this delicious fat-bomb snack and you should try it too!
- Hard boiled cage free organic eggs (I eat mostly just yolk but my GF eats the whole thing)
- Pastured Sour Cream, fresh salsa, store-bought pate all in generous proportions
- optional other flavorings... usually not.
Does that not sound like a great staple meal/snack??!?1
And the combined egg and pate makes for a huge nutritional boon.
I'm not likely to start making my own pate at home.

I LOVE pork liver pate!!! Pate de Campagne specifically, it is awesome, seriously. I could live off nothing but that for 24 hrs a day, every day, for the rest of my life. The one I like is the Trois Petits Cochons. Go for it, that stuff is one of the healthiest things you could eat, packed with vitamins, minerals, and a good dose of lard. It's actually much more fat than protein, so it's a high fat, low/moderate protein food depending on the ratio of pork fat to liver+meat that is used.

Sounds awesome, sometimes the pate's can have preservatives or stabilizers, if this one doesn't then it's probably a great source of organ meat.
Making pate at home is easier than you think, it's basically just cold meat loaf. Having your own meat grinder makes it easier since you can buy pretty much any kind of meat or offal and grind it in there, or some butchers will grind it for you.
I personally don't have "fat bombs" but just eat a decent amount of fat with each meal and have full-fat everything. I don't go out of my way to eat fat but if you eat whole / natural foods you'll get plenty.
