Display Your Culinary Creations / Re: Whipped egg whites are nasty
« on: March 09, 2018, 11:48:20 pm »
I used to separate the yolk, and so not knowing what to do with the white, but now I feel it's a more wholesome solution to have the whole egg.
If you feel like having whipped eggs, I would take them whole, and add some citrus, any kind works, its quite nice. Lime, orange, grapefruit... Adding some honey is a bonus.

Had some raw dairy some days ago, which I normally do not eat, and felt really bad, heavy and bloated for 2 days, with some stomach cramps. I will not do this again. I am quite sure that dairy, even raw, does not suit me. I feel slow in my mind after.
Today I started the day with meat, and some lard (which I do not do usually). Had some Jun (honey combucha) just after, and my energy levels are great. Dairy really slows me down and messes with my digestion.

found by chance some recipes with raw beaten egg whites, but... they involve booze. Maybe you could use juice/fresh fruit/home brewed mead/cider/kombucha/jun instead?... for instance: egg whites plus gin plus liqueur. Or: egg white plus whisky plus orange.
Or, non alcoholic cocktail: egg white, currants, pear, honey, ginger. Or: egg whites pineapple, apple juice, lemon.
Never tried any...but who knows, maybe some of this stuff is satisfying?

Also, effect on wildlife, from this site :

- In general, anomalies in DNA, malformation in nervous system (and neural tube), in heart, in embryo.
- affects blood-brain barrier in mammals, letting toxic substances pass through. Aggressiveness in both humans and animals, memory, sleep and attention disorders.
- Insects: decreased numbers and fertility, and near the base station: much less insects. And decreasing number of insects affecting birds feeding on them.
- Trees: in Latvia, pine seeds have a lower germination rates, also pines increase of resin production, a sign of stress. Also, aging and declining growth. In Spain, trees look week, susceptible to disease, top have dried up, especially if roots near water. Trees don't grow above height of other trees, and those who "stand out" have dried tops. Popplar and willow are most sensitive, with their roots near water, and the electric conductivity of water irradiating them.

Some exmample of problems observed in animals, from the swedish site Vågbrytaren:

- 3/4 of chicken eggs exposed to a very near mobile mast didn't hatch
- many police horses in Kassel in Germany got sick, when a mobile mast was put, and when those horses moved to a safer place they recovered.
- Uk studies that a big proportion of the sparrow population is gone
- In the Us, reports talk about many millions of birds missing.
- A experiment in Germany with beehives showed that when a mobile phone was put next to 8 different hives, almost all the bees didn't come back to 4 of them.
- Carrier-pigeons in some parts of Sweden do not find their way back.
- A man in the Uk bought an old house, but problem was he had to share the house with lots of bees and tried many things to get rid of them. He then installed wifi, and they completely disappeared never to come back.

rickets and deformed bones/legs are much less prevalent now, caused mostly by lack of vitamin D, and too many anti-nutrients.

Lack of zinc in vegetarians is said to make them have a much less sensitive sense of smell.

Off Topic / crazy vegans
« on: February 18, 2018, 02:20:41 am »
 In Lierre Keith book "The vegetarian myth" I read that some vegans were discussing in forum that we humans should interfere with  carnivores (animals) eating other animals: a vegan wrote that someone should build a fence in Serengeti (a safari/national park in Kenya) so that the big cats will not kill and eat the wildebeest and zebras. He knew that the carnivore would survive, because  they don't need meat, as he had seen his dog eat grass and so that was the proof that carnivores could live on grass... No one objected, and many agreed that thee've seen their cat doing the same...

When I was a fruitarian, there was this "experienced" fruitarian that many were listening to, and he seriously believed that you could train lions to become vegans by giving them avocados, and many really were believing him.
I was once on a small safari in Tanzania, and I was travelling there with another fruitarian. There were many very strict rules for this national park, it was absolutely not allowed to throw out any food scrapes or anything from the jeep, and absolutely not any seeds from fruits etc, because of fear of invasive plant species disrupting that particular ecosystem. What this guy did, was that he had brought his stash of fruit seeds (yeah, this is a typical fruitarian behaviour, always saving fruit seeds, to later spread them) , and was throwing them out from the window in the safari park, so that in the future we might start to live in a fruitarian paradise...
 Many fruitarians have told that they think "normal" trees (read: the one that do not produce any fruits) are boring and should be replaced with fruit trees... They want to convert the whole planet into a huge fruit garden, not caring about nature, wilderness and different ecosystems. There is a reason for this: they are obsessed with fruits from the moment they wake up, I know, I was there...

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Raw chocolate - thoughts?
« on: February 16, 2018, 03:39:40 am »
Another thing I don't like with chocolate is that it has soy or sunflower lecithin. I prefer to do without.
Watch out though, there can be some sneaky ingredients on dried fruit as well, like sunflower oil. I remember I bought some raisins of another brand I usually find, and felt how unsatisfying they were, and then looked at the ingredients, and those idiots had put sunflower oil on it. The thing is, with raisins, if they are just simply sundried, they still have some natural yeast on their surface (you can usually use them to kick-start fermented brews), and can taste real nice and natural. So, always check the ingredients...

When we think of Africa, we think of black people (bantu), but the people of the bushman tribe are from a completely different genetic stock and predates the black africans. The black people invaded, and enslaved these brown/orange bushmen.
A great book I can recommend is from Laurens Van der Post, "The heart of the hunter", a white guy from south africa who get to know these bushmen, and how they pushed away from their land first by the black man, and then by the white. Another very ancient tribe are the pygmies in africa, they also predate the black man.

haha, be careful, chocolate is a very sneaky addiction, trust me. I am still a choco addict, even though I do manage some days without it. I did stop it for some weeks, then started again. Wintertime is the hardest, when one might need comfort food or something. Actually, I think I prefer sundried fruits,  like high quality dates, or dried california plums of the sweet and soft type, very satisfying...Or if you can find dried super ripe mangos that are soft, but hard to find. You can really feel you ingest sun/warmth, with that sundried fruits. I really wanna kick that chocolate addiction, and you know what they say: best way of kicking an addiction is by getting another one... So, being still a sugar addict, I admit, but somehow not ready to kick that one, I am sort of ready to go towards honey or dried fruit.
And strangely, even though I big fan of fruits, I don't get the urge to eat fresh ones in the winter, too cooling...
But really, raw chocolate makes me real high, but, also, I can feel when I'm coming down from it. It really is a stimulant.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Kidney discomfort
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:30:13 pm »
If you eat one day really a BIG amount of meat, you'll notice that your urine will smell strong/different. This is definitely affecting the kidneys. But my personal view on healing is that there is no ultimate diet, its a balance, and every diet has it's side effets, which will eventually make us old/kill us. I just need to find the diet that -at this moment- is what I need. Sure, junk food I know I can do without. But I have to say, I (and many others) experienced veganism and fruitarianism as healing the first weeks/months... I don't say it's good for everybody, and certainly not in the long term.
What about Fallon, she wasn't exactly that healthy and glowing in my opinion, I definitely dont wanna end up like her... but neither do I want to go back to that fruitarian feeling, where you're always hyper, manic, hungry, cold, nervous, ungrounded and paranoid. Eating too much meat (I mean protein meat) takes away my drive when I need to accomplish things and be active. I would say, eating a high fruit/sugar diet is like being on natural speed. Not healthy. But too much meat make me feel heavy and slow.
Variety is the key good I think, eating high meat/liver, fermented stuff, overripe fruit (yeah I know some of you eat unripe fruit which I could absolutely not digest, that would give me a terrible stomach ache, plus it is not good for teeth, all this talk about anti-nutrients, and then they eat unripe fruits. Come on.), low alcohol mead/cider made with natural yeasts. Well, we talk about raw stuff. Maybe the next level is... live stuff...?????

Meal worm aren't my favorite, they'r ok though, but I'd rather have sago worm... Really, the person who'll manage to sell them as food or as kit to grow them WILL make some money***hint***
They are always sold out, extremely expensive... That's because the demand is much higher than the supply. I've heard that in Thailand they are farmed using a sago palm pulp, they're not that difficult apparently to farm... They are extremely tasty and popular among people of S E Asia, Central and Latin America, Africa... This is high quality stuff, these people would not bother with meal worms.
In Asia you can see the insects they sell for tourists (deep fried cricket, scorpions, beetles etc)... But in the tourists stall you won't find the sago worms, for that you need to go to the local market, Thais really like to keep the best for themselves, (unless they can make lots of money of it) the Thai laugh behind our backs, tourists think they tried something SO local...

@NFNR: what's wrong with brown eyes...? Beautiful eyes are not about the colour, but the expression, and what's inside/behind them :)
I would say that you have the wrong intentions... colour change could be a side effect, not a goal in itself...
Healing and health is the goal, not some attributes.
I know that when it's summer, and I am a lot in nature, my eyes turn lighter and greener. And a general well-being I would say brighten my eyes But if I would wake up every morning and do my daily check-up, "are my eyes changing colour?"... I don't know... Feel I have other priorities...

General Discussion / Re: Beyond Grass fed
« on: January 04, 2018, 06:23:58 pm »
interesting thread...
There is a very big focus on cattle and bigger animal, in general, not only in paleo circles, but among cooked meat eaters as well.
Would be nice to diversify also, with fowl, hare, deer, and any other local animal that can be hunted or that could be eaten, including insects, squirrel, ducks etc...
Big animal such as cattle are heavy, and walk on the soil creating a certain habitat, with certain plant to thrive. But that also mean that other plants would not be able to grow there, because they are more fragile and would be crushed by the weight of the animal. Fukuoka, a japanese guy into natural farming once said that he wouldn't allow an animal heavier than a chicken on his grounds and gardens, other animals would crush and stamp the soil, making harder and more compact, destroying a variety of plants.
Diversification or desertification...?

there is a connection between eyes and liver meridians... I once did a water fast on my own  17 years ago (was a bit too brutal for my body because I should have gone raw before doing it), and the "white" of my eyes turned very strong yellow, it was quite scary. And, no, I was not drinking alcohol at the time before the fast, have always been a non smoker, never did any drugs or other... Detox can really do strange things.
The iris of my eyes change colour all the time. I have a mix of colours (grey, brown, green, yellow)...

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Cooked tubers - healthy or unhealthy?
« on: December 25, 2017, 08:00:09 pm »
If one really wants to eat some cooked starches, white/irish potatoes are not the best choice: I do not push anyone to eat anything cooked, but I do sometimes, and the best, most satisfying starches for me are: roasted/steamed chestnuts, my absolute favorite (somehow a nut/fruit), pumpkin, and sweet potatoes, sometimes other tropical tubers... the Kitavans, a tribe eating a lot tubers, seem quite healthy. As I said, I do not push anyone here, I just like to keep my eyes open.
