Important Info for Newbies / Most important books
« on: February 04, 2013, 11:42:00 am »
Could we get a list going of the most important books for a new RAFer to read? I mean the really big, life-changing, revolutionary books that set the foundations for RAF diets. I saw mention of an instincto book that I'd like to read; I myself have read Aajonus's books and some Weston Price.
I'm hoping that this list can really be specific--just the five or ten really big, really foundational books for starting out. Maybe we can have a different topic where we can post all our other favorite books?

Off Topic / Raw diet for cats
« on: February 04, 2013, 04:43:34 am »
Has anybody had success with a raw diet for a cat? I'm feeling like I really don't understand how her body works, and it's so sad when I know she's hurting and I don't know what to do.

This is what I've done so far:

I've been feeding my 9 year old kitty raw food for a couple of years, and it's been quite a journey. When I lived in a house where other cats ate wet and dry food, it was very hard to keep her from eating it too. She was very overweight and possibly diabetic from a lifetime of canned food and kibble. I restricted her portions and fed her  chicken livers blenderized with ground turkey and chicken meat. She lost weight and is now normal sized (under her 2-3 inch coat).  It's only been the last 6 months or so since we moved that I can feed her 100% raw.  Lately I've been giving her just pastured organs cut up--pork livers, hearts, and kidneys. Recently she's been acting very unusual--waking up at odd hours, meowing excessively, walking around crying as though she is in pain.
She has a very small abscess that has been dormant for months that seems to be acting up, my housemate showed me how to keep it soft and drain it. She has runny eyes ("normal" for her) and a runny nose. She also appears to be constipated: I mean 5-7 days at a time, no poop in the litter box. She doesn't relieve herself outside.
It's incredibly frustrating because she can't talk to me and tell me what she needs. So, I decided to go with whatever she wants.  She doesn't want a lot of meat, either organs or fish. She goes outside and nibbles on the grass. She wants to be on my lap all the time, even when I sit down to eat. This is how I discovered that she is craving milk like nobody's business, so now she's drinking raw milk every day. I did a little research and gave her an egg yolk, which she devoured and then finally made a little tiny poop. But after that she didn't want any more egg yolk--just milk. Yesterday she also ate a quarter of a biscuit (even a raw foodie needs a home-baked biscuit once and a while! Raw honey and raw butter on them, mmm mm!) and some time afterwards she finally had a sizeable bowel movement.

After some listening to her, and to my instincts, and looking at Pottenger's study, I've started giving her raw milk, quality cod liver oil, and raw meats (pastured organs and wild fish meat, fish with scales/fins/bones at least once  a week) with the occasional biscuit. If you have any advice or experience with RAF cats, I would really, really appreciate hearing it!

Health / Supplement: MSM
« on: January 28, 2013, 10:52:52 am »
It seems like there's kind of an ongoing debate about supplements on this forum, so without going too deeply into that debate I would like to ask if anybody has experience with the supplement called MSM.
Usually I don't take supplements of any kind, but my friend gave me this MSM because it's supposed to help people with joint inflammation. I haven't tried it yet. I am aware that I only get joint inflammation when I eat cooked food or too much grain. But, sometimes I choose to eat these things even knowing that it will hurt later... and I was thinking, what if I just took the supplement to avoid pain in those situations?

Display Your Culinary Creations / Marinated Mushrooms with Raw Steak
« on: January 08, 2013, 12:17:16 pm »
Right now this is one of my favorite dishes!
Start the mushrooms ahead of time; the prep is very simple, but it takes an hour or two to work. First slice up some mushrooms and put them in a jar. Add enough  apple cider vinegar to coat all the mushrooms when you stir them. Also throw in a splash of olive oil (or whatever oil you use).
Add your preferred flavors: today I used sliced onion and garlic, and fresh thyme. Everything goes in the jar together; make sure all the mushrooms get wet with vinegar, and then leave it for an hour or two. The mushrooms will absorb the flavors of everything in the jar, and they will shrink and put out water just like when you cook them! Delicious.
I like this served with fresh raw steak. It's also good for disguising the flavor of stinky raw meat that's been in the kitchen for a while!

Welcoming Committee / How wonderful!
« on: December 22, 2012, 10:41:52 am »
Hello, I am a 22 year old woman living in Santa Cruz, CA. I have been eating the Primal Diet/raw Metabolic Diet for three years, and I am so excited that I found this forum!
I have sometimes participated in other health forums, but most of the people I meet there are completely closed to the idea of raw meat. Even a lot of people I know in my life are closed to it! You can imagine what my parents thought when they first found out. It is a huge, wonderful, gratifying relief to find an entire forum full of people who love raw meat!! I hope to learn a lot about people's unique approaches, and maybe share some recipes.
Happy solstice, everyone!
