Yea the blood I got came from the chest cavity because hardly any is lost when the amish man stabs the sheep in the chest. It had a bunch of tiny white specks floating around but I'm pretty sure it is just fat. By now, I am quite familiar with the skinning and slaughter of sheep but it helps to have a hoist set-up.

wow excellent idea for candles. I have a huge jar of blood, mostly jello! I was thinking about rendering some caul to make pemmican as there is SO much. But I don't really make jerky.. This sheep was beautiful and I left it at the farm to dry. I took the organs home and the front legs to get me through awhile.

I want the thyroid first, hopefully that has iodine. Then I took home the lungs too, any ideas?? Lastly, I was gonna bring the gallbladder home but that thing started leaking and into the compost!!

Thanks for replying eve, I always like your posts.

getting another sheep today. the first was a lamb but this is a mutton (4 years old)! I'm worried I wont find it tasty. I also don't know what to bargain it for. Well anyway, thats my own problem. So I'll catch the blood again and keep just about every organ. Not all mixed together in a pyrex dish though..
Anyone have organ storage ideas? Hanging the meat in the fridge works great but there is not room for all those bloody organs. I learned that all the caul fat is best frozen so I'll see what else fits in that little freezer.

General Discussion / Re: Bone broths best prepared raw, not cooked

I've been trying to consume bone broth for a while now. All the literature and websites recommend it as the holy grail to fixing the gut. But after multiple attempts, I can say it just tastes like burned water. My stomach feels heavy and worse. So I wonder what other ways I could get the gelatin.

Well I have actually been trying to eat veggies and starches to gear up my gut biome. I was always discouraged because after trying foods, diarrhea was inevitable. But these last two days, I have followed a Low FODMAP plan and have not had pains or depression yet!

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Just meat
« on: June 24, 2015, 12:41:28 am »
I do best only on meat and fat. But I do too much web research and then I'm like, I need all these other vitamins and minerals!! So I can never make it more than a couple days eating strictly carnivore and as I am always experimenting, certain foods set off very painful gut reactions. Recently, tahini (granted it was roasted).
So it seems everyone on this forum basically eats a mixed plant and animal diet at this point. I enjoyed reading paleophil's transformation to RS and it seems to make alot of sense, re: the colon's use of the starches.
I know I feel best strictly carnivore and soon find myself running and exercising more on that diet. I just worry about iodine and the like. It is hard on me because progress seems so easy to lose  -[

General Discussion / Re: hanging meat in your fridge
« on: June 15, 2015, 09:27:12 pm »
Well over a month ago, I got my first lamb. I didn't want vacuum sealed packages so I just cut the carcass into random pieces as long as it fit into my cooler. Actually, looking back the cuts were pretty efficient, two ribs, the legs, and the headless body. Anyway I had so many questions but just stuck the meat in the fridge as suggested. I became depressed as I saw how long the carcass would take to eat and as I watched the meat begin to "spoil." The taste was soon off, the fridge was in the musty smelling garage, and the organs were all thrown together in a spoiling pyrex dish.
I soon got a grip. Everyone's helpful suggestions and patience with answering repetitive questions allowed me to hang the meat properly, eat the organs that were still good, discard the rest knowing there will always be more. I still have tons of questions but I'm starting to see that most things in the world of RAW just require personal experience because every situation is unique. So thanks everyone.

P.S. The moldy, cheesy meat really grows on you quick.  ;)

the biblical reference is "don't eat the blood." and yea the in the chest technique is actually very impressive, the sheep don't seem  bothered and pass out real quickly. However he then lifts up the hind legs and just lets the blood seep onto the concrete and the grass beyond. I think I will just tell him the truth, that I want it for nutrition and ask him the best method to catch it. Or I could wait until he slaughters a cow..
Anyway the vinegar technique sounds interesting and I know I'm a broken record, but how long will fresh blood keep?

Right On, that is a very good idea. There is also a lot of congealed blood within the body that would probably be cleaner. So how long does it last for you? Does it turn to jelly on ya?

For the experienced. I go to an amish farm and the man butchers the sheep in a rugged little porch-style area. He doesn't slit the throat, he stabs the knife into the chest area, solar plexus? He doesn't save the blood (bible). I want some but it seems difficult to catch and the wool is always dirty around the puncture. Any ideas?

Speaking of blood, I got TONs of vaccines growing up (thanks ma) and Mercola is all about them containing heavy metals. Any insight or papers on the subject would be nice. I'm assuming it is a problem all over the world!

I had high liver the other day, that I admit was just sitting in a dish in its own liquid. Anyway I didn't feel very content after eating it so i lightly cooked the rest and that was better.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Why are vegetables bad?
« on: June 14, 2015, 11:03:31 pm »
I suffer from indigestion, then depression when I eat certain veggies/nuts. I recently cooked a chicken and made bone broth and my stools smell horrible (or normal for most). I'm finding so many triggers, that it is getting easier for me to just want raw meat only. Most everything else causes diarrhea, especially if it is cooked. So I totally understand eating a balanced diet of fat, protein, starch, and plants but I just want to find something that lets me feel normal(ish).

Thank you sir. I have been feeling strong enough to start exercising again and for that I am very thankful. My blood results came back negative and I threw away the prescription for the drugs the doctor tried to give me. My guess was that it was a viral infection and boy was it miserable. Again thanks for everyones comments.
