Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Veggies over fruits?
« on: April 24, 2010, 12:47:48 am »
I prefer veggies over fruit mainly because fruits tend to spike my insulin levels, making me low blood sugar, which defeats the purpose of eating in my case. I never get hungry, only low blood sugar.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs> Show Your Bones> Cheated Hearts. Such a fan-esque music video. Went to their concert in KC, Missouri last year for my 17th. It's pretty amazing how many people you can pack into a bar.

   I'm thinking for red meat like buffalo.  I love the smell of buffalo, and like its color, I just think it would look a lot better on these blue plates.  Maybe it's the contrast.  Blue is a soothing color.  I like the cold.  I think I just want to think "cool" when I eat, as far as temperatures go, that may be it.

    A lot of raw foodists have Pitta (fire) constitution, and do well with calming (or non-pittagenic) things, like foods that are anti-inflammatory, etc.  I had a number of inflammatory diseases (here is a general info list  I always liked blue anyway.  Blue depresses some people, but blue kind of works like raw fats for me.  

     Same here, I've alway's loved blue. My dad is a kinesiologist. When we were really young he muscle tested us for colors and mine was indigo. So, my parents let me paint my whole room different shades of vibrant blue. I had blue neon lights, a blue chandilier, blue comforter, you name it. It was like that song "blue" by eiffel 65. Which was my favorite song back then. Even now I have a blue russian cat named Thor. I've always had issues with inflammation, too. And my skin tone is red, I blush really easily. That's really cool to know about the Pitta thing ^_^ I'll have to check it out.

It works out great so long as the organ isn't high fat like tongue. I've made jerky out of heart, liver, kidney, and spleen and all dried out quite thoroughly and stored great. The trick is to cut it thin so it can dry out completely. The liver jerky I've got right now I made 6-8 weeks ago and it's showing no signs of any issues so far.

Do you slice it yourself or take it to a butcher? For me, it's hard to slice the meat really thin without ruining the structure into a tangled mess.

here's a music video from my favorite band, Animal Collective. they're a little bit 'out there,' but they cease to amaze me. also, there's some raw meat eating footage at the end as a bonus. does anyone else follow them? just curious. lately, i've also been listening to philip glass... he's pretty amazing

Hell yes! Merriweather Post Pavilion is the bomb.

    I too enjoy eating with another carnivore.  Normally I eat with my two cats, and then give leftovers to a certain cat who hangs out outside.  Problem is, his food attracts carnivore stray "friend" cats, and then I stop putting food out for a while.

     Yeah, it's a good thing cats aren't any bigger than they are. They might eat the meat and finish off with you!

FWIW I've been feeding my parents' standard poodles (litter-mate females, ~2 years old) raw meat and raw jerky as a treat for the last ~6 months and they've taken to it quite heartily. They're content with the commercial food they are fed daily but will do practically anything for a piece of liver jerky. :)

Aw, thats really thoughful of you. I had no idea you could make jerky out of organ meat, let alone liver. It's always seems so slimey!

This is my second time around doing RAF. I think the first time I was so deficient in fats and minerals that I found eating mostly meat (technically I started out eating mostly fish and chicken) to be enticing and enjoyable, and eating in an omni/primal style never really felt the need for more variety. Now, and even though I hadn't eaten SAD food in years (three years on raw-vegan with very few periods of simple cooked foods followed by the RAF then followed 6 mo later by clean cooked foods, mostly warrior style eating) I still don't find myself craving foods even when I prepare foods for others, but am honestly struggling with the banality/repetitiveness of how I eat this time around. One difference is I've only allowed myself a handful of fruits in over two months. I imagine eating the largest variety of animal and digestible veg foods is the secret to this.

As for the muscle meat itself I don't have any problems with/can enjoy alot depending on the cut, so I guess this is not at all helpful. Although personally ground is not one of them and find mixing with some egg and/or avocado to be more edible.

I can see how having a animal companion could be helpful, my standards for how I would need to feed one of my own are too high to realize currently as I can hardly afford to feed myself quality food.

Avocado is amazing! I like to cut in half and pour chili powder where the pit was.

It is quite expensive. But on the bright side, the diet keeps them healthy enough to never need a trip to the vet. Shots be damned.

     The other day, I was complaining to myself how hard it is to eat raw meat without combating the barf reflex. So I went outside (I'm WWOOFing at a farm in California) and started eating. Before I knew it, a kitten came up to me and was pawing me on the leg. I gave it some of my raw ground beef and while watching it eat it became increasingly easier to eat my own beef. Eating raw with someone makes all the difference in the world! I've never come across anyone who eats raw meat before, but all animals love to eat raw meat. So the moral of this story is:

     If you can't eat your meat raw, ask a carnivore to join!

Indeed. If you really want to piss monsanto off, buy local!

Personals / Any Kansas Raw Paleo Dieters??

Hey everybody! Does anyone here live in KS?? Please let me know if I am not the only one who doesn't fry their meat into oblivion! Thanks.

Yup, they rape the land. I saw a commercial the other day for monsanto. It showed a farmer and his son walking in a wheat field. I was thinking that if that was a monsanto field, both of them would be sprouting eyeballs. Quite sad.
