Some of you saw my blog post the other day where I took the step into raw foods, and more precisely, raw meat. It has been on my mind ever since.
I've googled and googled, but somehow I only keep coming up with 2 kinds of pages. Pages telling me how dangerous raw meat is (they assume it's CAFO meat), or pages on how to feed cats and dogs raw diets. In both cases, not helpful.
I definitely want to delve further into eating more raw meat, but not ONLY raw meat, not to be particularly "hard core" or weird or anything, but because it just plain tastes good! For a comparison, think of eating a fresh raw bell pepper versus a cooked one. That's the same difference I tasted with the meat. It was just so... fresh tasting.
In my freezer I currently have grass-fed/finished beef and pastured/wild boar. The most obvious risk is trichinosis (in the pork), which is greatly reduced by freezing for a period of 20 days or longer (already done.)
I highly doubt I'd eat raw meat anywhere but home, or possibly my parents' house IF they were serving the same beef/boar I bought. I also already eat my Amish/pastured eggs raw (usually in protein shake.) The texture and flavor leaves a lot to be desired. I'd say it would be a 50-50 thing, eating meat cooked half the time and raw the other half, just as I do my eggs.
Mostly I'm looking for others experiences, and/or any helpful links. I seem to be having some trouble finding sites on my own.
