Hot Topics / primal/paleo -> vegan?
« on: November 28, 2009, 03:02:26 am »
There's been discussion here from time to time about veganism. Some if not many of us primal/paleos have been vegans, or nearly vegan vegetarians and found from experience that that method of eating caused poor health.

Does anyone know of anyone who has tried primal/paleo and then became vegan or near-vegan vegetarian?

I don't know of any.

The path I've noticed in most folks is SAD -> vegetarian -> vegan -> primal/paleo

Maybe that will change as primal/paleo becomes more common and people explore it earlier.

I just haven't ever heard of people abandoning proper animal foods in favor of plants.

Just for the record, I checked with USWellnessMeats & their jerky is raw into the dehydrator and then dried at 115 degrees F.

General Discussion / Antibacterial power of ginger

A sliver of raw ginger root killed 16 oz of kombucha culture in 12 hours.

I had added it to a test batch for flavor. I wasn't expecting it to kill the culture.

Kombucha culture is bacteria + yeast

General Discussion / RAF - old fashioned medicine?

Saw this on another forum:

"I just hate bone marrow. I have very vivid memories of my mother having to choke it and fat trimmings down as a "prescription" when she got Leukemia in the 1950's. Talk about the dark ages of cancer treatment."

Also, when I was looking up carpaccio, I came across:

"A wealthy lady, who was an everyday customer, was indeed told by her doctor to eat only raw meat. Unfortunately, at the time, it was not socially acceptable that a lady of her status would order "raw meat" at the most elegant restaurant in the city. It was the waiter who suggested her to use a different name for it. Apparently a painting by Carpaccio was hanging on the wall at the Savini at the time, and the waiter suggested Carpaccio as the "code name" for the dish..."

The latter sounds like "urban legend," however, and I couldn't find a reliable citation.

Dr. Gerson also used raw liver juice in his juice formulas in the 1950s for cancer treatment.

Suggestion Box / Are my pictures showing up?
« on: November 11, 2009, 10:29:05 pm »
The last 2 posts in my journal should have pictures. The last post should have a pic of me in 2009, the post behind that should have a pic of me in 2008.

They show up on my computer, cache cleared, but someone else tells me there are no pictures visible?

General Discussion / How long can beef steak "age" at room temp?
« on: November 06, 2009, 05:50:46 am »
I've been putting out our beef steak medallions for about 3 hours at room temperature before we eat them. We prefer room temperature and the texture of them when they've dried off a little.

I accidentally left a batch out for about 6 hours and we ate them and thought they were wonderful. They had a richer flavor and a nice "crust" on top. No adverse reactions that time, but...

I'd prefer not to learn the limits of this technique the hard way !

Anyone have experience with this?
