I love raw organ-meats, especially raw tongue. Raw organ-meats have a much higher nutrient-content and much higher taste compared to other foods, with the exception of raw wild game and  aged meats, which are even higher in taste. The trouble is that most of us have decades of past consumption of comparatively tasteless cooked and processed foods, so it takes time to get used to and start enjoying raw organs etc. for beginners. That is why cooked-foodists need to add condiments to their bland processed foods. I suggest you try a wide variety of raw organs in order to see if some are easier to get used to and enjoy. You could also try raw seafood for a different texture. Also, make sure to eat high quality raw organs(ie from wild game or 100% grassfed-raised animals).

We all eat raw meat here. There are 2 types of disgust. One is psychological. That is, you've been taught that something is disgusting because it's raw. So then it's not really disgusting, you just think it is. Don't think, use your senses. What may happen is that your smell and taste tell you that it's raw, and your brain tells you that raw is disgusting because you've been taught to fear it. That's a psychological problem, and it will go away once your body learns that raw is healthy.

The other kind of disgust, is when the meat you are eating is so low quality, so full of toxins and raised in such poor unhealthy conditions, that it truly is disgusting when eaten raw. And when you cook that, you don't make it any healthier, but you mask the disgusting nature of the smell, taste and texture.

For instance, the other day I tried some factory farmed chicken, raw, just for experiment's sake. It felt like I was eating tasteless snot/goo. Free range organic chicken does not taste like that, but the meat is firm and tasty instead. Chickens bred in slightly better conditions than factory farmed, but not fully organic and free-range will be somewhere in between the two. Also, chicken that's been frozen will become more tasteless and watery too, and I think this one had been frozen.

Ye, I had a pigs heart. That was relatively ok, not bad. When you avoid all the tendony kind of string stuff, and it has a kind of skin too, but when you just eat the meat of the heart its ok. Not chewy at all, and kind of reminiscent of blood.

I tried veal's liver. Ooh geez..thats tough. I mean its incredibly creamy and soft, but the taste is so strong.

I also have a tongue in my fridge, but Im terrified of it hahaha.

I also get what you mean with the two kinds of disgust. Generally when I ate the organs it sat in my stomach fine. But today I ate this lambstuff that had been frozen, and it just tastes so bad. And still hours after the taste linger in my mouth, yak.

So you guys eat only raw, or? Do you swear by raw meat? Its make you healthy, no food poisonings?

thanks for the replies!

I'll occasionally eat something cooked for various reasons, but I always end up paying for it with some health problem caused by it.

I've had some symptoms that could be described as food poisoning from raw foods, but the only times I've had all symptoms of food poisoning together, have been from cooked foods.

Moreover, even if you do get these symptoms occasionally, it's your general health that matters, not what happens on any particular day or even week.

And it's not clear to me at all that eating raw increases the frequency or duration of these symptoms compared to eating cooked. What I will say is that highly processed, sterile food is unlikely to cause immediate problems. So you could eat chocolate and chips and pepsi all day and never have food poisoning. But how would your overall health be?

Surfsteve here to chime in:

I agree that grassfed tastes better raw than factory farmed. Been eating or rather drinking raw organ meat smoothies for many years and have developed a taste for them but where I live so far it has been impossible to get raw organ meat that is grass fed. One thing I recently discovered is that grass fed lamb goes on sale extremely cheap. It seems like lamb is always grass fed. At least around here. Actually I've never even seen factory farmed lamb for sale. I have a freezer full of grass fed lamb “T-bone” steaks. Because Albertsons has them on 5 dollar Friday occasionally for 5 dollars a pound. This week I been stocking up on lamb shoulder blade chops for 3.99 a pound. I've discovered their “Just For You” program. You can sign up one account on your cell phone but their system lets you sign up more than one account online enabling additional savings. Last week they also had grass fed ground beef on 5 dollar Friday and managed to score about 20 pounds by going back to both stores every day, buying up all they had. I just wish there was some way to come by grass fed organ meats. Even going over 150 miles each way to Los Angeles where they sell liver for over ten or more dollars a pound have been out of it every time I call. Apparently it's only available by special order and has to be prepaid a month before hand.

There's probably some local ranchers within that 150 mile radius that don't advertise but everyone on Craigslist or that I google is getting top dollar for grass fed, including organ meats.

Lately I been adding lots of raw vegetables into my diet again. Been trying to stay away from ones that have phytotoxins, which is nearly all of them. I have also discovered that dried Natto powder tastes pretty good and when combined with vinegar oil and spices makes a pretty good salad dressing that even makes my dogs want to eat salad. In town near my gym is an oriental market that I called on Saturday just before they closed that said they sell natto so I'm going to check it out. I never had it fresh but apparently it's pretty gross. Anyone else here ever tried natto?

I'd say i'm a newbie to this too as i've been doing it only a few months now. I began with a 30 day matured steak I got from the local supemarket. It's the only organic meat they had. It was scary for me when starting but once I started I was fine and I really liked the taste straight away.

I've now had ox liver, lamb liver, ox tongue and herring. The tongue and steak taste the best to me. But I mostly eat liver because it's known to be one of the best organs nutritionally. The tongue tastes great though.. but it made me feel absolutely sick when I first saw and handled it. I got used to it and it's no big deal now. I think you get used to the taste of everything the more you do it. I've even been eating some of the stuff rotten.

I skimmed some of your posts about natto before I became a member here. Natto interests me. I bought some already made frozen natto that was shipped from Germany to over here in UK. I don't mind it. I must say though, there's no point in buying it already made when it seems so easy to make by yourself. I've got myself some organic soybeans, a small pressure cooker, and a yoghurt maker. I just need to order some of the starter powder.

Do you eat natto regularly? What do you think about it? Noticed any benefits?
