Health / How do you eat tallow/suet?
« on: January 14, 2011, 09:53:07 am »
I'm interested in buying some grass-fed beef suet/tallow. But the thing is i'm trying to wrap my mind around this...How do you eat it?

Does it have to be melted? Or do you just chew it? Or...I dunno xD

Can someone who's eaten tallow/suet explain?

I've read that edible clay helps with removing excess minerals or mineral/heavy metal toxicity. Check out some edible clays through google.

Personals / Has Raw Paleo Ever Interfered in your relationships?
« on: January 02, 2011, 01:59:44 pm »
Now I know we've tapped into a great knowledge of health but not everyone else knows that sadly. So it is common for people to judge me especially if i'm sitting outside eating a raw steak.

That raises a question:
1) Has your raw paleo diet ever interfered with your family, friends, relationships (ie wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends)? If so, how have you dealt with it?

2) How have you integrated your raw paleo diet socially? (such as eating out, eating raw in public, with friends and family, etc.)

Health / Calcium in animal blood and how to obtain blood
« on: January 01, 2011, 05:42:02 am »
Well after searching through various topics typically the one on drinking blood v. milk it sounded fairly interesting. Since blood tests for nutritonal values usually measure blood calcium level, it is inherent that blood carries calcium and that ingesting it would be more favorable than drinking milk and it would probably be more digestable than milk. Ever heard of blood intolerance? I think not.

Does anyone know how to obtain animal blood? Like anyone have a list of sellers, places ie markets, stores farmers markets?

And another question - what about the bloody liquid or juices with meats and fish - do those count as blood?

Health / Omega-3 content of bone marrow?

Now I heard bone marrow is mainly composed of monounsaturated fatty acids but what about omega-3s in the marrow?

Health / How do you obtain fats?
« on: December 23, 2010, 10:14:23 pm »
Hi i'm new to the raw paleo diet and in an effort to get the fats I need for my diet and to make up my caloric intake, I relied heavily on nuts and seeds. The problem is when I would eat soaked nuts and seeds i'd experience horrible cramps and to eat raw or roasted seeds was out of the question - pure indigestion by the book. I haven't tried sprouted seeds yet in part because everytime i'd try and sprout them they'd mole or rot. But this has lead me to question - because of the antinutrient properties of nuts and seeds ie phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors - should we eat them? Since they're literally bird food as birds have stomachs designed to eat these.

I don't really know how else to get my fats but I have ideas:
1) Fats from meats - ie  chicken and turkey skin (I wont dare touch red meat due to acid reflux) and bone marrow - they're expensive and hard to find as ive searched but also there's usually so little with the chicken ; now that covers omega 6 fats but besides from a serving of fish how do I get my hands on heavily fatty fish since fish is usually skinless due to scales and if I were to try and eat fish bones i'd prob choke and skin i'd probably choke on the scales

2) Fats from insects - Now insects according to research is very paleo as they are a concentrated source of fats and protein but I have a phobia of insects so that's out of the question

3) Vegetable oils - but those too contain enzyme inhibitors and don't seem very natural to me - think about it this way, could a hunter really collect all those seeds and press them into a bottle of convenient oil?

Does anyone have any practical ideas on how to increase my fat intake preferably poly, mono, and omega-3 concentrated?
