    Potted means cooked, seasoned and smooshed into a ramekin and then covered with the cooking juices and melted butter and allows to cool until set/sealed by butter.
    Sounds like rillettes. I had the pork version recently and it was a real treat.

    I always thought potted meat was something like devilled ham, you know the kind in the white paper-wrapped can with the little devil on it? Way too processed to be any good for you.

    Anyway, I keep a lot of people around here who add little value on my ignore list and it helps a lot.

    Last night I had to have dinner alone so yay, I made a HUGE steak. It was so good.

    Unless one has a medical/health condition that requires specific intervention, I'm now starting to believe that any diet that eliminates processed junk, recommends real food and moderate exercise can be a healthy diet. Excess weight may not be the health threat we've been led to believe; in the same twists of the studies that made people "know" saturated fat and red meat were killers.

    Paleobird-
    I've been a member here for sometime but rarely post. I just want to say how much I appreciate your posts. This is another good one! Like you and so many others here I eat a relatively low carb diet because that is what works for me. . I'll look forward to reading further about your experience with your new plan.

    My meat comes from a farm that raises lemons and limes but just keeps some animals as a side line for underbrush control. One of the perks of ordering is that you get to pick all the fruit you can carry. Next time I'm bringing a bigger bag. Lemon/lime Pelegrino is great.

    Two of my favorites.

    When I was a kid you could forage for shellfish on the rocks in San Diego including nice big abalone but they are gone now.

    Please read the OP again. Particularly the part about this being something I'm investigating. There are some interesting scientific references and such on that site among the personal nuttiness. I dismiss him because he doesn't see the value in nose to tail eating or in grass fed meat, not because he (and disciples) are carnivores.

    Oh, Yeah! I had that book as a kid. I think I'll take the lamb liver out to thaw and start on a batch of pate'

    Wow. That's a bit incestuous. I think that any diet that makes you be cognizant of what is going in your face, stop and think before eating, is helpful.
    I disagree on the excess weight thing although of course there are people who take their quest for the perfect body to unhealthy skinny levels. I was perfectly healthy by biomarkers with 30 extra pounds on me but I *feel* so much better without it. I really think long term damage issues such as wear and tear on knees have to be taken in to account too.

    and seas and zoes please be careful getting shellfish around NZ in the summer. I realise that it is mainly a problem in the north, but those diseases that you can get from infected shellfish are NASTY !!!!!

    LOVE this thread, Robyn. So much so, that you are now fixed in my signature

    While I don't think I could ever go ZC (love my sweet potatoes too much), when I did experiment with verrrrry low carb, I was very clear headed, mood was stable, but I also felt like a fucking VULCAN. Like my emotions had FLATLINED. That and my heart was racing at night and it woke me up. So I figured since I have no need to be ZC or even VLC, I stopped. But it is fascinating nonetheless.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
