Organs and Pet food
« on: August 15, 2011, 12:05:27 am »
Hey guys,

It's been a while since I posted.  About 3 weeks ago I went off raw for about 2 weeks.  I felt like shit.  I fasted last Monday and I've been RZC again for the last 6 days.  I wan't to incorperate organs into my diet but, I can't stand whole organs, also I tried some slankers pet food today hoping I would be able to tolerate that.  I ate maybe 2oz of pet food with some muscle meat and bone marrow, then I had too big a bite I think.  I started gaging and I nearly threw up :(  I will try again tomorrow and hopefully will be able to eat a little more and be a little more used to the flavor and consistency.  I think maybe it will take time to adjust to organs the same way it took time to adjust and be able to eat raw meat.

Any advice?

do you have a local farm that will make a ground mix for you?  then you can decide what organs you like and at what percent to combine with regular ground muscle meat.

there are some organs i just can't stand, even at only 5%. i'll try them again someday, but for now i just don't like them. others i really like, and i keep those at about 15% or so of my mix.

this has been an easy way for me to eat organs... an indiscernible mix that just looks like ground meat but has a little bit more (good) flavor :)

I used to cut up raw organ meats into very tiny slivers and just pop each sliver, one at a time, into my mouth, quickly followed by a gulp of alkaline mineral-water to wash away the taste. I quickly got used to the taste of raw liver etc., as a result.

That's what it took for me. Time to adjust to taste and texture. Also, I had to learn a new way of chewing that works for me - kinda like gnawing with intermittent swallowing.

Not all of it was getting used to organs, though. I have a strong like for some organs, an aversion to others. My favorite is fresh lamb liver, but only when it's a small liver (around 1.5 pounds). I liked kidney at first, now it's awful (pun intended). Suet no, marrow yes. Some things are better in lamb, some are better in beef. So, time plus experimentation (and a garbage can) has been successful for me.
