General Discussion / Mineral water causing tooth decay/tartar
« Last post by norawnofun on Today at 03:35:27 am »
I always thought that mineral water is better than filtered water, or "man made" water, however it seems that it can have adverse effects if you drink too much of it. Some time ago I used to drink a lot of sparkling water, but after some time I noticed that I got more and more tartar. I first blamed the dairy that I eat daily, but when I cut the sparkling (mostly naturally sparkling and sometimes carbonated) the tartar reversed. Now I noticed something similar happening with still mineral water. When I sometimes look into my glass kettle I see regularly calcification at the heating part. So these "minerals" must cause that on my teeth as well.

Then everytime I drink that still mineral water it first helps but then bloats. So I am thinking that too much of it can have harmful effects on your digestion, your teeth and possibly organs. Has anybody else noticed something similar? I am thinking to switch to either filtered jug water or man made water from bottles. Or what are the alternatives? I know both aren´t the best but better that than rotting teeth and internal "calcification". A proper filter system I can´t afford atm.

I get the frozen wild deer liver.
It has a lot of blood.
And it's taste is so much strong that I am unable to eat it.

Do you prefer grass fed liver or the wild liver taste wise?

Im not sure if I read it on this forum here once, but is it true that quality liver tends to be more firm while low quality is more soft?

I buy beef liver at the wet market.  Killed at 12mn on display at 6am.

Good young clean liver looks pretty young and clean and fresh, smooth, no stones, the wet market man seller knows what looks young and healthy.

We should take pics and post pics.

And taste... taste is good.

The grass fed org livers I buy are the same color and texture throughout.  The lungs I buy have red patches and spotting in some areas which could be sickness for all I know though.

General Discussion / Spotting Good Quality Liver

I've been curious to ask somebody more knowledgeable on buying good quality liver. Currently, I purchase lamb liver from two sources:

Supermarket - vacuum sealed from NZ

Butcher - sourced within UK


Supermarket liver isnt ideal but it really isnt *that* bad. Sometimes its excellent, actually.
The butcher, however, has always been consistently good to the point where you would rather buy their liver than the steak they sell. The cuts they sell are visually uniform compared to the supermarket that can vary greatly in texture, colour and size. Ive not managed to pin point what differences it makes considering ive not been zc for long. However, is there any actual way to determine its quality by visual assessment? Are certain sections naturally grainy, pale or dark red than others or am I eating liver of a sick animal? Do certain parts of the liver actually taste worse/stronger than other areas?

General Discussion / Re: ground meat still good? 2days sealed
« Last post by norawnofun on September 18, 2018, 03:11:23 am »
I regularly buy ground beef and I recommend storing them in proper sealable glass containers such as

https://www.amazon.co.uk/VonShef-Piece-Glass-Container-Storage/dp/B0144V5UIM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1537211016&sr=8-1&keywords=vonchef+glass+container

then there are different types which have no sealer rubber around and these I wouldn´t recommend (something similar to https://www.amazon.co.uk/GOURMETmaxx-02973-Storage-Containers-Stackable/dp/B00HDADPXO/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1537211016&sr=8-6&keywords=vonchef+glass+container).

I also store it at the lowest shelf at the very back. I found that at that location things last much longer. When I buy raw ricotta it usually lasted 3-4 days in the original plastic container, however, when I started to put it in the sealable glass container it easily lasts 7 days. Raw meat the same. 4-5 days isn´t an issue and it might last even longer.

And do you have issues with Dairy? And does the mucus when you get it effect you negatively? Like bloating, constipation, fatigue and so forth

I only get those kind of symptoms whenever I consume Dairy.
