i would recommend marinating it in lemon juice the acidity causes a king of cold cooking w/o the same damaging effects of actual cooking. youll probably be killing some good bacteria but if youre concerned i think this is the ideal route, at least till you get more comfortable...
best of luck!

gee, thanks hari0001.
i feel like there has to be a scene in "ravenous" , i think its a funny movie for any RAFers...

General Discussion / Re: Do you use salt?
« on: April 02, 2009, 08:57:52 am »
I had a period over a number of years when following the primal diet when I added no salt to my diet. 

However, since adding it back in 3 or 4 years ago I've found that I suffer less digestive problems, no longer had such frequent periods of weakness/shakiness etc.  I do suffer with adrenal problems which causes the body problems relating to salt regulation.  So, for me, I seem to do much better with it!

I add a generous pinch of Celtic sea salt to all of my meals which are predominately made up of fatty cuts of beef or lamb with marrow, when available, and a few vegetable flavourings (parsley, garlic, onion...)

I also find I enjoy my meals much more WITH added salt but suppose this may be due to acquired taste or addiction.

ive recently been having some of the problems youve mentioned here and have begun to think i may have some (hyper) thyroid issues. i also consume little to know salt so your post here intrigues me...
do you (or anyone else) know in detail if and why salt is helpful with these symptoms?

i saw a program recently about pork farming/ breeding, appearently years ago when red meat was beginning to be vilified in the media pork farmers began to selectively breed the "red" out us "the other white meat". in this same program anyone who was to come in contact with the pigs had to fully suit up in surgical scrubs and mask because the pigs had virtually no immune system.must have bred that out too. l)

this is effin creepy...
check it out !

dude, i totally respect where youre coming from with wanting to take the natural route and am completely sketched out by antibiotics....unless their necessary. buuuutttt i think this is one of those cases my understanding of your particular predicament is that it can do some serious damage the longer you let it go.
dont be a hero brother, im all about living paleo as much as is sensible but there are benefits to modern medicine as long as youre discriminate. the average life expectancy is continually rising for a reason y'know?
get the best of both worlds(or times i guess).
best of luck!

this may seem crazy to you goodsamaritan but its totally accurate, im from n.y. and have had similar experiences. i agree its scary, id like to think im a good person and am pretty law abiding (as far as i know!) and yet im still freaked out by the presence of cops.
its unfortunate to say the least.
i could go on at length about the injustice of our justice system but i think the my country's reputation precedes its self.

the only down side is its all farmed, they claim its all antibiotic and hormone free, fed non gmo stuff,etc. but i doubt the critters are getting their natural diet. not exactly optimal but hell, you've got to live a little and this week i think that'll mean alligator tail  ;D

« on: March 17, 2009, 11:26:15 am »
from what ive been reading it seems it might be a good idea to get more iodine in my diet and seaweed looks like the best source. you make stuff with seaweed right satya? any recipe recommendations?

i do follow your logic here tyler, i guess i cant help question how efficiently these nutrients from a foreign gland can been digested and assimilated into the very same gland of the one consuming it...
that being said im not at all poo-pooing the concept at all and am all for giving it a shot, it makes much more sense to me than using some creepy pharmaceutical treatment (assuming i even have such a condition).
anyone with tips on where to get thyroid in the u.s.? the only glands ive encountered at my local farmers market is thymus.

General Discussion / hyper thyroid?
« on: March 16, 2009, 02:05:29 pm »
i havent gotten any lab work done yet but am beginning to suspect i may have some thyroid  issues, specifically hyper thyroid.
any tip of alleviating this? i seen people recommending eating thyroid but do quite get how eating a gland would help with ones own gland... doesnt seem to add up, though im open to an explanation.

"So, seesawsemiology, where are you at anyway, generally?  Texas has been pretty stable throughout all this BS.  I hope you are in a good situation and can educate the vegheads that come to your co-op.  They need all the help they can get - I know I was one of them and bought the "healthy" diet crap hook, line and sinker for a time."

im in seattle. dont get me wrong there are still tons of veg-folk but many who i speak to even say they know it isnt healthy but a personal choice...i think the price foundation has done us a lot of good personally,being easiest to swallow for most.also, more and more im meeting other raw paleo/primal diet people.its pretty rad coming across another person into this, its always sort of exciting. its funny, when i first started this i was a bit secretive about it. i had moved here from brooklyn and it was quite a culture shock, i quickly got the impression that everyone here was a militant vegan, hippie sterotype... but as it turns out most people are really pretty interested when they find out what i eat and ask a lot of questions.this gives me a great oppertunity  to provide the education you speak of.

wow, you should totally do a book satya! i work at a natural foods co-op and have really been noticing a sort of cultural backlash against vegitarianism, mostly in the w.a. price vein but ive been meeting more and more people who are getting into raf diets...point being ,the timing may be good.

You are only picked as the expert of a company if your paradigm fits their business paradigm.  Follow the money.  Maybe in the future when humans are free of the bondage of money we can all concentrate on the truth of things and what is truly best.
i couldnt agree more sir, just hope we get there as a whole...
