General Discussion / aged goose egg.
« on: July 20, 2012, 07:15:51 am »

I put this egg in a jar of compost and let it age in a cupboard for about four months. I am going to crack it open and eat it this weekend.

Just wondering if anyone has experience with century eggs?

Does it have the same effect as high-meat?

General Discussion / Wild Ram chase
« on: March 14, 2012, 11:02:26 am »
This past weekend I had the luck of going on a persistence hunt of an AWOL ram.

I had a 80 pound ram brought to my house and put it in a pen to await slaughter. This one was a bit on the wild side and it butted the gate open then ran out into the yard. My yard backs up to a 180 acre open field, and my children had made an opening in the fence so they could go back and forth through what my son calls "the Jungle". Well that ram bolted right out into that field and the chase was on. I would track it and lose it, and then find it again jumping from thicket to thicket.

I ran it around the whole property and eventually the land owner came out to see what I was doing. I explained that I was running after my sheep, he didn't believe me at first, until out it ran from behind some brush. Then we both began chasing after it. Finally I said 'we may have to shoot it', so he went to get a gun, but by the time he came back the ram had run across the road into an other yard, and the guy wouldn't shoot it off of his own property. So we cased it some more.

It then took to the open road and started down the highway, we hopped in a truck and followed it about one mile. The damn thing wouldn't get out of the road and two cars were stuck behind it. Eventually it hung a right and went into a field. It hopped through a fence where a donkey and large horse were kept. The donkey attacked it and chased it around the yard until it eventually became exhausted and stopped to hide behind a honeysuckle tree. Then we finally grabbed it and brought it back home.

My legs are still a little sore, but it was all good fun, and good eating.

Off Topic / Selective enforcement of food safety
« on: February 24, 2012, 08:52:39 am »
I am calling out Shenanigans on the recalls regarding brown rice syrup.

Normally such recalls wouldn't be of much personal  importance, but it seems that the supplemental formula I have been mixing with goats milk for my children has about 8 parts per billion of arsenic. Other products contained much higher levels

The epa has set the standard safe level for drinking water at 10 ppb.

Considering I mix the formula with half goats milk, I can only assume that My children are fairly safe from exposure to toxic levels.

Its kind of suspicious that the only formula on the market that doesn't contain Genetically modified fungus oil , or corn syrup; has been recalled.
Especially considering that most of the other brands of formula out there are far more polluted. I think its a case of selective enforcement, where these research studies have singled out the alternative to king corn syrup.
Regardless of the conspiracy behind the recall, I now find myself looking for an alternative for my 12 month olds diet.

She is by far the most paleo child of the bunch. Her first finger food was ground buffalo bits with lamb fat. I will also spoon feed her egg yolks.
She likes bone marrow, coconut butter, and what ever scraps I give her.

 I think she will be just fine,and I have no regrets about using the formula. All of my babies are beautiful and healthy.

 I may just start giving her more raw cows milk in place of the formula.

Health / diseased animal
« on: October 31, 2011, 12:17:41 pm »
I had run out of food and was desperately searching for a good source of pasture lamb. I found a guy who was raising grainfed lambs, but he said he had some pasture Ewes that he would sell so I went out to his farm and bought a one year old that had been on raised on pasture. It looked well enough, but once I got to cutting into it I found that it had a real foul gamy taste and there were some odd looking cyst.

This was Friday night. I had also worked all week and had a cut on my hand that was exposed to the animal when I was cleaning the animal. 12 hours after exposure to the carcase I developed a large blister over the cut and a few hours after that my hand started to swell and a rash began to move up my arm. Then I began to have a swollen lympnode on my upper arm. I assumed it to be a skin infection from where I cut myself on the edge of an electrical box and  then foolishly I let it be exposed to all types of nastiness. I went to the ER last night and got a prescription for 100 milligrams of doxycycline for a skin infection.

Just two hours I began to cut into a hunk of fat from the animal and found a lympnode that appears to be infected with Caseous Lymphadenitis. I am now wondering if perhaps my infection may infact be a result of having my wounded hand come into direct contact with a diseased animal.

This sucks, not only do I have an infection , but I have no money at all, and I feel that I must throw out the food that was suppose to feed me for the next week. It tasted foul from the first few bits, and I should of trusted my instincts from the beginning. I have already eaten about 5 pounds of it, but from what I have read, the bacteria is only contracted through open sores so I should be alright as long as I can fight off the infection in my hand.

This is the blister that formed over my original cut after exposure to the animal

This is after I popped the blister accidentally while wrestling around with the misses

This is a picture of the clearly diseased lymphnode

Its a text  book case of Caseous Lymphadenitis
Its a bit scary , but I feel fine otherwise and am hopeful that my body will overcome whatever is causing my infection.

Just wondering if anyone else has had experience with diseased animals.

Off Topic / Raw paleo ogres
« on: August 23, 2011, 07:18:29 am »
Anyone else here think they are becoming an Ogre.

I have been living off whole lamb and will set out leg bones to age a day, then trim off the aged meat scarps and smash the bones to get the marrow. I then throw the bone scraps to the animals in the back yard.

Anyone else have a good bone pile started?

Drinking blood scooping out brains and picking at bones, just seem so natural to me now, I am not self conscious about it, but to the rest of the world it may seem monstrous.

That brings me to the Idea that there must of been historically real life Ogres who would eat anything, even people if they were hungry enough, They may have been monstrously large and strong, so when the average neolithic man came across one or seen a huge bone pit they may have invented all types of stories.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Transitioning from carnivorous to omivorious
« on: August 19, 2011, 11:19:19 am »
I have been on a mostly carnivorous diet for the past year and a half and had to avoid most carbohydrates because of blood sugar issues.

I will eat coconut, lemon water and an occasional tomato, besides that no other plant foods.

I had such damaged pancreatic and liver function that I couldn't tolerate carbs very well at all, and a piece of fruit would spike my blood sugar and make me feel ill.

It seems that my ability to use carbohydrates has been steadily increasing over the last few months.(I view this as a sign that my organs are regenerating according to AV's rejuvenation theory.)

I am craving more fruit and coconut water, I will now eat a few berries, small pieces of fruit, small amounts of honey, tomatoes; without any issues; and I feel good and I believe that the small amount of carbs I am eating help stimulate my appetite. I have just eaten about 45 pounds of lamb in the last two weeks, and am gaining some weight.

I am still low carb and don't usually go over 50 per day. I am still conflicted about if it is safe to experiment with much more than that. I was still figuring on waiting for the two year mark to start building carb tolerance, although it seems that nature is taking its course and now I crave the taste and smell of fruit, and it seems that I am holding back from eating too much out of fear of how bad I used to feel when I ate sweet foods.

Just wondering, is canned coconut water cheating?

I like to mix a splash of coconut water into my lemon water with a few frozen blueberry's then chase an egg down with it, as a refreshing drink for after work. It seems that canned coconut water is well tolerated and has less of a laxative effect as fresh coconut water, plus it doesn't go rancid after a day like fresh coconut water does. It may not be ethically paleo, but is there any harm in it?

Off Topic / Is it ethical to kill and eat pet ponies?
« on: August 05, 2011, 08:47:50 am »
So I am desperate to find cheap sources of quality meat and I have been searching Craigslist.

There are horses , and ponies for sale.

This one miniature pony is only 125 dollars and looks delicious. I probably wouldn't do it now, but if I were hungry enough I think I would buy it and butcher it for food.

Dose anyone else think its wrong to buy unwanted pets for real cheap and then slaughter them for food?

My wife says if I brought it home she wouldn't let me hurt it.

General Discussion / Austrailian Goat
« on: July 22, 2011, 07:13:42 am »
I have found place that sells Australian goat that's 4.99 per pound and was going to try it out.
It comes from an ethnic store that also sells domestic goat for 6 per pound.

Believe it or not they also sell goat brain for 4.99 a pound.

Any one know much about Australian goat?

Also how much brain could one eat?

I am still waiting for my butcher to get back and am trying out different kinds of fat. Is brain not suitable to eat on a regular basis in order to obtain enough fat?

General Discussion / Hog fat
« on: July 14, 2011, 09:00:46 am »
My butcher is on vacation until the 1st of august and the whole foods refuses to sell me fat trimmings and I am down to about two days worth of fat trimming.

Times are tough. Anyway I contacted a farm that has pasture hog fat for one dollar a pound. I guess I will try it out, it must be better than going through rabbit starvation. I have to decide soon, and unless I can locate any other source of beef fat I will be getting the hog fat this weekend.

Anyone have experience with pasture raised hog fat?

General Discussion / Milk fed chicken
« on: July 10, 2011, 07:04:47 am »

I just bought and ate a whole milkfed chicken and it was quite good.
Its not from the farm in the link, from what I was told its a seasonal delicacy that is free ranged and finished off on raw milk from the same farm. They are fed grains, but it only makes up a small part of the total diet.

I usually don't eat chicken because of quality concerns, but I am impressed by this milk fed chicken I just finished off.

Just wondering if anyone else still occasionally gets in a hurry and accidental cuts them selves while chopping up meat?

I thought I would have learned by now, but apparently not. :( I sliced into my finger tip while cutting into some cow heart the other morning.

General Discussion / High meat can make you smarter
« on: June 07, 2011, 03:01:38 pm »

There are now conclusive studies that prove that soil bacteria can increase serotonin levels as well as increase neuron development. So it should be safe to assume that high meat bacteria has similar brain boosting properties?

After eating high meat it seems that my thoughts are clearer and my cognitive powers seem to increase substantially.


General Discussion / Wild pig hunt
« on: April 18, 2011, 11:12:52 am »
I have a friend in Tennessee which is about two hours from where I live and he told me about how anybody can go to certain areas and hunt for wild hogs which are epidemic in certain areas.

One day I would like to go get one my self.

Anyone ever had wild hog meat ?

Quote from the site -
"Feral hog season is open year-round on private lands with no bag limits whatsoever. In other words, we want you to kill as many hogs as possible to slow their spread. So please help us take aim at controlling wild hog populations."

General Discussion / paleo friendly chicks
« on: March 23, 2011, 09:38:49 am »
I have 27 new baby chicks and would like to raise them in the most paleo fashion, the problem is that all chick starter feeds are full of grain. I got a bag that is supposed to be anti biotic, and hormone free, but its still mainly grain based. They are unvaccinated and I don't plan to medicate them. I just wonder if and when I should begin feeding them better stuff? And what should I feed them that wouldn't be to expensive? When they are grown I plan to free range them and give them table scraps, but now I have them in a little pen for their own protection.

 My kids use them as action figures

Health / Fluoridated Babies
« on: February 28, 2011, 03:35:20 pm »
I usually try not to use my time on this forum to spread wild rumors about the medical establishments eugenics protocol. But Dammit if I didn't just spend 20 minutes listening to a doctor tell me she wanted to give my premature infant at least some fluoride. She was completely serious and believed that fluoride was a necessary element of good health.

Having 4 Babies born in a hospital I have witnessed some very questionable practices. But to stay on topic I would like to inform the people that now days there are recommendations that babies be sent home with a whole bottle of this stuff labeled vitamins, but on the insert it also says fluoride supplement, now premature babies don't have teeth and they definitely arnt in danger of becoming fluoride deficient, so why is it now hospital policy to does every last baby born , with fluoride. The vitamins are also synthetic and contain polysorbate80 and sorbitol, and god knows what else. They have given my child about 10 doses of these fluoride laced vitamins before I discovered what was on the label. I immediately informed one of the nurses that I wouldn't be using the vitamins, and when asked why, I  said that fluoride is nothing I want to feed my baby. Well she was low on the pole and sent a doctor over to give me a speech about the wonders of fluoride.

It was completely insulting to my intelligence, and I had to listen to her tell me to at least mix her some formula with tap water so that she gets some fluoride, and how although to much fluoride is poison that to little will cause bad teeth when they are older. Can you believe they're still selling this lie in 2011. She then said I could at least buy some fluoridated baby water they sell at the store. It was a painful experience to be scolded by a doctor for not wanting to fluoridate my newborn.

 I wonder if the fluoride is used in the nursery as a tranquilizer, it makes they infants more sedate. so they are cheaper to care for. Why are they so desperate to make sure my child is fluoridated, I just don't get it.

I got a quarter calf with the spine cut down half. I dug out the spinal cord and even picked at the vertebrae, It tasted good, you can see where I was digging pits into the disc with a knife. I minced up the meat and it made for a good feast. With some beef marrow lamb fat and coconut butter.

General Discussion / raw eggs, the oldworlds vitamin supplement?
« on: January 12, 2011, 09:55:03 pm »
I have been giving my children raw eggs since they were weened from the breast. Its a tradition, My great grandmother do the same thing with her own children, as soon as they were weened she would mix a raw egg in with some raw milk and gave it to her babies(she called it egg nog) My granny told me her grandfather would drink at least two raw eggs every morning. I do the same thing. this past summer when my chickens were laying I would take my 2 year old out to gather eggs and would crack the top off of one for her to eat AV style, she loves it and its the perfect hydrating nourishing snack for children.

I wonder how widespread the practice of raw eggs was in the past. We all heard of Rocky drinking eggs and other body builders of this day and age, but what about people of the old world. We watch old Disney cartoons at my Granny's with the Kidd's and nearly every one of the classic cartoons there are backyard chickens and other farm animals. The main characters seem so healthy and virtuous. Cinderella feeds the chickens every morning and gets raw milk and eggs. Fern in Charlets web gets a whole basket of eggs in the morning and the family is surrounded by tasty animals. Bell in beauty in the beast keeps chickens, and Gaston the thick headed bruit actually sings a song in which he brags brags(When I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs every morning to help me get large, now I am a man I eat 5 dozen eggs so I am roughly the size of a barge) and he is portrayed as eatting whole raw eggs.) Do you think the cartoon artist were portraying the benefits of those animal foods? and why is it in every Disney movie that the poor people keep farm animals and seem so healthy. These messages often do get lost, but I believe that the farm animals give a impression of a more down to earth people who know how to live and care for themselves, and its a virtue that is often overlooked. Anyway me and my grandmother get a kick at seeing those movies and it reminds her of her own youth when she would play in the chicken yard as a child.
He is a bastard, but toward the end he leaves you to belief that his physical prowess was a result of eatting 4 dozen raw eggs each morning

Hot Topics / what happend to neolithic eden
« on: January 04, 2011, 01:16:17 pm »
So I am not so dense that I have completely written off the fact that there have been times and places where the people lived happily and into prosperous old age on farm fresh cooked foods. I have seen the remnant's of such a neolithic Eden in Northern California ,Perhaps its only gone with the wind nostalgia but I talked to people who lived from before the second world war.

There were farms out that way where the children were taught collage level material at grade school age. These one room schools were so much better for educating the young than anything else we have today. A school marm would be put up by the comunity and her sole mission would be to educate the children to the best of their abilities, this gave her the freedom to allow the bright and gifted to study anything at any grade level as soon as they were ready. The state government eventually went in and shut down these schools, even though some of the brightest minds were being produced in the old methods.

These people drank a lot of raw milk and ate cooked meats, everything was organic and fresh. They didn't seem to be affected by the damage of cooked foods .  These people ate cooked foods but since everything was so clean and pure it didn't harm them because they had pristine alimentary conditions. They knew how to balance themselves. The kids would gather dandelions for the 90 something year old Granny to make wine with. The cows were hand milked every morning. They had some type of powdered flower that they spread around the garden to repell bugs.

They practised the most wise forms of folk medicine. This man I talked to was born premature and barely 4 pounds and was sure to die. His grandmother put him in a goose egg incubator and feeds him with a dropper for weeks day and night and he lives. A country Doctor feeds anemic children a remedy of raw lungs and heart. They build their own sweat lodges and will sweat out in the wintertime. They use smoke house to prepare a good amount of their meats.

Its not heaven but when teddy Roosevelt took his tour of northern California at the turn of last century he saw a place he compaired to ancient Athens. So what the F happened and why cant we live as they did. It seems that nothing last and the progressives destroyed those farmland communities that existed throughout that part of the world. Once the kids were taken away from the Old culture and away from the untainted food, Within one generation the whole thing evaporated. The reason that it worked is because the way the generations rely upon each other ,the young worked and the old did all the odd chores while teaching the children the old traditions in the process. Once factory farms came into power then the jobs that the old and young did were gone and so the Old generation went out to pasture and the young were put into kennels(classrooms) This is to force class upon us. They teach us class alright. What is offered in classrooms is as poisonous to our spirit as the cafeteria food is to our guts.     I digress.  

My Idea is that neolithic Edens existed, but you have to recognize it for what it is. There was life,love, hate , death, ignorance, and even in the best of the communities there were some sons of bastards. They had very admirable traits, and had their flaws. What is important and primary to my interest is that they had a better quality of life, they had health and a better capacity to enjoy the precious gift of life and were not subject to the pollution that we must now endure. Is there a way back to that world ? or is it gone forever and just figment of a poor imagination?

I guess I will have to find my own Eden or die trying.

Hot Topics / cooked meat is addictive
« on: December 25, 2010, 04:56:04 am »
I have a personal observation that proves cooked meat is addictive.
My 11 month old has been eating raw pieces of meat and fat for the last 3 months and loved it. Just recently my wife has been giving her cooked eggs and bacon for breakfast, and now she will reject raw meat and eat cooked, she still likes raw marrow but wont eat raw trimmings. It surprised me how fast her taste for food has changed within just a couple of weeks of eatting cooked.

General Discussion / Bloody goodness.
« on: December 15, 2010, 11:17:10 am »
I got a young buck that was hit by a car, (fairly good shape considering), I gutted it and butchered it without letting the blood drain, so the meat was more bloody than anything else I am accustomed to.
I found the blood delicious, and I let some cut up chunks of bloody meat air dry and it develops a nice bloody crust that tasted rawsome. Is there any real reason to let the blood drain out of the animals for us raw fooders, I figure that it was always done out of obsessive cleanliness and not for any quality reasons, (most people might not like blood dripping cuts of meat). I like it and crave it , I even licked the blood drippings off the bottom of my plate.
