Does anyone eat raw chicken legs?
« on: October 27, 2015, 03:00:04 am »
I have been eating chicken breast (frozen) for about 10 months  now, quite like it. I wonder if the chicken leg will be taste as tender as the breast?  Is there anyone eat chicken legs before? How it taste comparing to the chicken breast?

I would only eat truly free-range chicken raw. Legs can be pretty tough on a free-range bird, especially roosters and older birds in general.

I usually eat the breast too, but sometimes eat the thighs.  The meat is darker.

I ate nothing but chicken(mostly thighs) for 3-4 months. They are very tasty. Make sure you get them from a good source. And I would never eat frozen.

If you buy chicken legs, don't waste anything and eat the bone and marrow with it!

I got inspired by my dog who eats the whole leg when she gets one, and come to think of it it's all benefits:

-calcium and stuff from the crushed bone and marrow

-strengthens your jaw

-less waste (even if I have not managed to eat the denser ends of the bone yet).

This is what I thought: the meat may be tougher. thanks for reply.

Compare to breast, how the thigh taste? Is it much tougher? Is it flavor stronger? Thanks for reply.

Well, I only eat lean meat, I want build muscle and I do not like the fatty taste. But thanks for the suggestion.

Legs are the best muscle part of the chicken. The skin, cartilage, spongy bone and marrow are also wonderful. But even if you only want the lean muscle, the leg and thigh are by far the best. I only eat chicken breast for health benefits (eating the whole animal is better, as sabertooth says), but I don't enjoy them. They're too bland. The legs and thighs and wings, I could eat all day.

I also don't eat frozen meats.

They are closer to the bone which is said to increase mineral content of the meat and so the meat is darker and tastier IMO. They are fattier, so not tougher.  I just get what is available, the thighs tend to be cheaper bc everyone wants the leaner breast meat. But the farmer I trust tends to bring more breast meat to the market so that's what I have available.

My dog loves the bone too, but I don't crush it and I don't eat it myself. How do you crush the bone??

Does anyone else eat bone meal for comment? Just seems like a food that passes through me identifiably does not have nutrition value??

Bone meal actually dissolves very easily in stomach acid. Try dropping a little bit of it in white vinegar sometime. It dissolves very well in most acids.

thanks for the info. I thought frozen chicken may reduce the chance of parasites infection, am I right?

Exactly like my dog does it  ;D

I start by eating a bit of the meat around the chicken drumstick, then I take a bite of the bone with the meat left around it, because it feels chewier and less hazardous than bone alone. Chew thoroughly, then swallow. Make sure nobody's around or they'll probably get you committed ;)

I use my teeth. Whatever is too tough to crush finely with my teeth (mainly the middle parts of the leg, thigh and wing bones), I don't eat. But I suppose you could apply this same rule to use other means to crush it. In any case, the main reason to do this is to get to the marrow inside.

Bone meal is cooked.

Yes, you are right. Although I'm not aware of any parasites that effectively transfer from chicken to humans. And in any case, I'm not afraid of parasites. Parasites are good, our bodies evolved/were designed to function symbiotically with them. But even if this wasn't the case, and even if there were dangerous parasites in chicken and other meats, I think you give up too much in nutrition by freezing them, to be worth eliminating parasites (and not all parasites are eliminated through freezing)

Regarding parasites, consider this: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-08-24/lifestyle/sns-rt-us-usa-health-parasitesbre87n0uw-20120824_1_rheumatoid-arthritis-pig-whipworm-autoimmune-disease-drugs

Well dogs have very strong hydrochloric acid in their stomach so they can swallow meat and bones whole, without crushing it finely with their teeth. The only crushing they really need to do is to make it small enough to comfortably swallow. Dogs' teeth are better for tearing meat off a carcass, but ours are better at crushing it finely. We use tools to tear.

Make sure nobody's around or they'll probably get you committed ;)

They'll probably do that anyway just from seeing you eat raw chicken. I doubt the bones will make much difference at that point.

Raw chicken do have chance, though small, to pass thread worm (or kind of , not exactly sure the name) to human, This worm only affect digest system, normally not cause big problem, can be easily treated by medication. However, certain parasites in pig (not the one your link mentioned) can cause serious problem on human being.

Even on this paleo diet community, only very small number of persons eat raw chicken, We should be humbly aware our minority status outside, and be proud a little bit inside.  ;D

I would just forget the 'parasite' hype. They aren't studied properly so we can't actually take any mainstream information on it. I side with AV on his stance that all parasites are beneficial. Certain organisms will cause reactions within our bodies. We can't really categorize them as 'parasites' until they are studied properly. I do not know what AV studied. He does state how our bodies use salmonella and E coli in his newsletters(which I do not recommend subscribing to). He has also infected himself with tapeworms to intentionally detox. He also states vomiting or diarrhea is a result of your body quickly releasing toxins expelled into your stomach. I had diarrhea for a week when I started eating raw eggs. I continued to eat and I have been eating 12-24 eggs a day for the last 4 months without the smallest reaction to them.
