Interesting miles!

I have heard of cooking Poke Salad (poke is a poisonous plant that is edible in the young stage) as well as young milkweed, by cooking in several changes of water. So what you are saying miles is that other vegetables used to be cooked this way too? Where can I find information about traditional vegetable preparation?

Perhaps this should be in it's own thread?

2,4-D is one of the two components of Agent Orange. Herbicides are mutagens. They may not kill grass or animals but they still have similar effects as does radiation. Radiation and herbicides are proven harmful, but cases of people dieing from either are rare. Generally people don't handle uranium or wash their hands with herbicides either.

Correct me if I am wrong with this next point, but aren't herbicides responsible for gender bending endocrine disruptors?

Wormers are not only toxic for the animal and for the soil, they aren't needed for healthy stock who will get by without them better and they aren't even very effective. Copper sulfate (the blue crystals they use to treat pools) combined with dolomite and vitamin C is a more effective, cheaper and less harmful alternative to synthetic wormers.

"Fertilizers are in no way something we should be worried about." Give me a fucking break idiot. It's true that some fertilizers might be good. However, fertilizers are mostly used to increase yield, not to increase quality of grass. Fertilizers increase the size of plants, but most of that size is being made up out of excess water. Organic produce can have half the water content of conventional produce. That's why it tastes so much better. Do I really have to explain Liebig's barrel to this guy?

I feel bad for this misguided gentlemen, because he thinks he is being economic. Really he is hurting his pocketbook. He believes the lies spewed forth by big agri, he would probably make more money if he didn't use any of that junk and trust me, all of it IS JUNK.

He may be right of the harm caused by mycotoxins, however he is ignorant of the fact that his practices likely help to proliferate mycotoxins.

If people are interested in contracting high quality, transparent production of grass fed meats, Without any of that junk, in the state of Ohio, contact ME.

I am no nonsense, I believe in producing the most high quality animals possible. I am open to suggestions or directions... I can grow anything you might want. Of course you will have to pay a bit more than slankers, but I don't think a lot more. Perhaps less if you pick up the animal alive. Most farmers will be happy to sell you a line of bullshit, I am not one of those people.

I have been studying organic agriculture like nobodies business for the past 5 years, been conducting my own practice for 3. Hit me up if you like! Peace.

I had never read the Wai diet, but I was eating sort of similiar, though with cooked meat and raw milk. Sometimes brown rice cooked in meat broth and coconut milk.

Anyways, yeah, fruit was by far the staple of my diet. I was aging fast, getting wrinkles. My teeth felt like they were crumbling. I feel like I managed to reverse the damage however, feel way better than I can ever remember now.

I can't say exactly how long I was eating high fruit, but I took it to extremes last year from June through August when I finally gave up and basically ate as much raw dairy as I had been eating fruit and even less fruit than I had been eating dairy. Results were staggering. Getting on the Primal Diet has been really key for me though IMO.

To me, it is tasteless cartilage, of no nutritional value.

Wait a sec

1 you are saying it's cartilage, okay, I had no idea is that true?

2 really no nutv? I find that hard to believe. You would think such an amazing system would be very nutritious indeed.

on this site they have the Nut facts for cooked beef lung
3 oz has

26% daily iron

« on: October 03, 2011, 06:42:52 am »
Reminds me, if I remember correctly, Warren Beatty playing the quarterback from the LA Rams drinks a glass of raw eggs in the start of the movie Heaven Can Wait.

Did anyone mention Rocky?

I think the movie may have been called White Fang... can't remember at all honestly I was in elementary school when I saw it, but there was some guy I think in a research station, studying wolves, probably in Alaska, out in nowhere, kicking back what were either live lemmings or some other small rodent. Somewhat ironic as those are actually the staple diet of wolves.

I might be wrong but I think Bill Murray and one of the attractive actresses in the film "Lost in Translation" dine on raw Kobe beef at one point in the movie. It looked REALLY GOOD.

I am sort of planning on making my own in the future. That's the tentative plan.

I have had great success helping my family get over health problems and they were not even half listening to my advice!

I have some great stories about it, but I will post them at some later date, they are pretty long.

General Discussion / Re: Food combining

I have heard claims that fruit and honey is useful for digesting fat and I have heard the same about protein.

The native americans made pemican bars of fruit, fat and meat.

Honestly I have a strong preference for a mix of foods, once I have eaten a bit of food, before I am full, I start looking for something else to eat with it. One thing is less satisfying to me. I couldn't say if that is my instinct or how I am programmed.

Perhaps it's because my digestion still isn't firing quite right yet?

Usually I eat just a little bit of fruit or honey with my meat or dairy, really just a little bit.

Actually, whenever I consume sweets of any kind, I try to include protein as I have read this prevents insulin spikes and I have problems with my teeth. I find that doing this prevents tooth aches.

Read that in Cure Tooth Decay.

I think it's backlash for how we have mindlessly been shoving food down our throats.

Even people who eat only plants or no meat, are almost always in complete blissful ignorance of the way their food is being produced. Some people are even producing the food, but are ignorant or in denial of the harm their methods are causing.

Health / Re: Solution for hair loss?
« on: October 03, 2011, 02:59:02 am »
He didn't have advice on hair loss. The idea of lack of ejaculation causing cancer was brought up. Bass wrote a whole book about male continence called "Energy Karezza".

You know if our bodies really need to ejaculate they will just do it in a wet dream no? Or will that cause prostate cancer too?

Also, if you aren't bald in your 90's you surely should be counting your blessings! Though my great grandpa wasn't.

I don't think it's about ejaculation directly. Frankly I can't remember the name of the hormone that is caused by masterbation/frantic sex/fight or flight, but that is what I am blaming for hair loss.

Ah, I think it was serotonin.

Huh. I kind of despise not fatty cuts of meat. I love short ribs, delmonico steaks and ribs in general, but especially short ribs which are often mostly fat!

I like to eat my grass fed ground beef with plenty of butter, avacado and coconut oil!

Eating butter by itself or with some fruit or honey tastes delicious to me.

I have dairy cows and grow most of my own food :p

If I remember correctly the taste wasn't far off from the goat jerky. We did make them together in the same solar dehydrator though.

I can pretty much positive anyone would like this, even "normies".

No it's not the best tasting thing in the world, but it's "good enough" to eat.

Primal Diet / Re: List of A1 and A2 Milk
« on: October 02, 2011, 04:39:06 pm »
The A2 milk protein issue is a fraud, masterminded by a particular company from New Zealand.

Actually I was going to venture the possibility of this, but decided not to. Perhaps it's to encourage people to breed with A2 bulls?

Do you have a source for that information, I would like to see it!

Make no mistake though, Holsteins being the mostly A1 milk cows, at least most of them do have vastly inferior milk to almost all other breeds.

Also Dexter and Brown Swiss and perhaps a few other breeds are known for having smaller fat globules in their milk, thus it takes longer for the cream to rise and their milk is easier to digest.

People who want to drink cow milk but have been having trouble with digestion might want to seek out Brown Swiss or Dexter.

There is a whole grass fed company in PA called Swiss Villa Dairy that offers raw milk that is sold in health food stores. Pretty drastically good stuff.

« on: October 02, 2011, 04:28:15 pm »
Yeah, I remember thinking that since vegetables are good for you, the more the better, so better shove in as much as I can.

I found a really nice huge dandelion in pure soil, which is rare, so I wanted to eat the whole thing.

Man was that a challenge.

I love dandelion roots, like poor mans chocolate.

I dunno about the salt lake minerals. I believe in Ocean minerals, like someone posted in my intro thread actually. sells a special raw, low sodium mineral extraction from the ocean. They even have blends containing raw herbs.

Azomite is good shit too. I mix it with milk and it makes it taste like chocolate milk.

    Do you freeze milk products regularly?

No frozen milk tastes like spew!

Freezing colostrum is a good idea however because if a mother animal is sick or dies after kidding, you can save the kids if you have some frozen colostrum to warm up and feed them.

Although I do happen to have a freezer full of raw butter! Is that a problem?
Special spring butter!

Nature has an incredible capacity to heal itself. Just watch this video. Life in the Dead Zone

Animals are pretty smart actually, you would be surprised. For instance, wild animals don't typically feast on GMO crops. Wild animals will not usually eat sprayed vegetation, sprayed vegetation is not healthy vegetation and wild animals look for healthy vegetation.

I would not eat possum or raccoon or rodent or other vermin unless I had to. They do eat human garbage.

Squirrel, groundhog, rabbit, deer, don't usually eat trash. Though I have seen a squirrel carrying a piece of pizza.

Of course you want your meat from the countryside.

The sad thing is that the whole damn world is polluted wherever you go. There isn't any clean places left. You are much better off living south of the equator, they have much less air pollution (the air masses north and south don't mix much). The cleanest places left are indeed usually the wildest. As I said before, nature has the capacity to heal itself from man made pollution. We just have to let it.

Primal Diet / Colostrum
« on: October 02, 2011, 06:45:23 am »
Realized that there is no thread on this super food!

I am no expert on the subject, but I find it hard to believe that there is any food that has more to offer than colostrum.

The shit is loaded with what is almost exactly human growth hormone. Supposedly drinking it will allow us to regrow a thymus gland, even if we don't have one anymore.

I had a goat kid and after a day, they had only drank out of one tit. The mother looked really uncomfortable so I drained one quarter into a pail. I was taking it back to the house to freeze it for later goat use, but then I decided to take a sip. A sip turned into a swallow. At first it tasted nasty, but then it tasted really good! Before I knew what I was doing I had an empty pail!

I have a feeling that people who are having troubles they can't overcome with raw paleo or raw primal would benefit from getting their hands on some of this goodness!

Wonders for the immune system I hear too.

If they're going to eat grains and legumes and stuff you should learn to prepare it in a traditional way, such as making sourdough bread.

IMO the best grains and legumes dishes are either dosas or idli (fermented mixture of mung or adzuki beans with brown or red cargo rice) or rice and optional beans first fermented a bit with whey and then cooked slowly with meat broth.

Nourishing traditions and Cure tooth decay have very good advice for making the SAD diet better. Weston Price said that one good meal a day improved tooth health I think 95%, even when the rest of the day's meals contained white flour and white sugar products.

Really the best bet for cheap food IMO is potatoes. Wouldn't be hard at all to grow your own in your own back yard either.

Oh and it's very possible to get a dairy farmer to give you large quantities of raw milk for rather cheap. Gotta find a good pasture based one though or it probably ain't worth it.

You could always get your own dairy cow!

I won't argue whether raw meat or raw milk is a better product, I really don't know personally. The reason why I chose to consume more milk than meat is because of the ease, because I like it better (though not all of the time, variety rules) and because milk is far superior in the economic department. I could keep one beef cow and raise her offspring for meat and get less than 600 pounds of meat a year or I could keep a dairy cow and get 10k pounds of milk a year + less than 400 pounds of meat a year, but just as much bones and guts as a beef cow.

Oh this thread is about coconuts! Sorry to take it so far off topic!

Hey, no one mentioned stress or ejaculation...

I think excessive ejaculation can cause hair loss. Stress for sure can.

Eating lots of raw meat sure does help with stress in my book. Eating cooked meat pisses me off and keeps me pissed off. Raw meat keeps me cool and mellow and when I do get riled up I am much more calm and collected.

However, I think love and compassion and touching/making out with other people and especially long lasting intercourse without ejaculation will help build oxytocin levels up and I think that might be the best way.

I do believe stress is the main cause of hair loss. Fight or flight hormones.

Sorry if that's too graphic lol...

I read in a thread that most people don't like lungs. I think even most SAD dieters would like this simple trick.

We just cut the goat lungs into ribbons and put them in the solar dehydrator. They ended up like a cross between jerky and styrophome. Not unlike those weird puffy fish chips, though a bit more chewy.

I read that native americans would simply hang ribbons of deer lungs on a tree branch until they were dried and store them for later use.

However, some of mine started to go moldy, in an airtight jar, I think they needed air... I was so upset and didn't want to waste them that I promptly dispatched them right then and there! Still tasted good!

Raw milk was my "gateway" drug. I was so hooked on raw milk that I moved out to the middle of nowhere and bought goats. Now I have my own dairy cows.

I think raw milk can be a good transition to raw meat. It helped me to learn to crave raw foods.

Also, raw dairy can be really cheap, if you find the right farm. I used to get it for 4 bucks a gallon from a pastured dairy farm. I want my milk to be all grass fed ideally, but I think people over stress it a bit. I know it's not ideal, but people like you and I on the low end of the economy can't always get what we want when we want it. You do have to make sure that the cows are at least put out to pasture every day of the growing season though.

Honey made from fire clover is insanely expensive and almost 100% clear. Doesn't taste as good I hear either. People are willing to pay for "purity" I guess.
