    But I needed to add a what 'dude' would consider a obscene amount of fat to make it tasty.

    Another confession: I also tried to bite into a raw slice.
    I literally SPIT.
    WTF.
    That is not food.

    'Dude' is off his rocker I think.

    End result.
    No, I don't need no stinking potatoes.
    If I want to eat some carbs I'll eat some that actually taste really good, like baked black plantains.
    Exactly zero additives are required to make them delicious... like decadent dessert delicious.
    I reserve them for treats.
    I agree, blegh! And then you are supposed to cool them after cooking and before eating to get another amazing whole 2% of Resistant Starch. Um, no. Thanks just the same. And I agree that raw potato is only in the "food" category if I were starving, otherwise "not food". If I want some carbs that taste good I'll have some berries.

    I think this is why people are so mentally attached to their spuds. Happy mental associations of salt, fat, cheese, etc. It's not really about the potato itself.

My husband likes to eat healthily and I have cooked extra veggies for five years...only to have him tell me last month that he really doesn't care for a lot of what I've cooked. We're heading towards carnivorousness here, too. Suits me fine as long as I can have some buttered broc now and again.
    Rawr. Welcome to the pack.

    Paleolithic humans ate a lot of leaves and this is where they got their large bones from? Are you for real?
    Its a rhetorical question.

    The point is that gorillas defecate more undigestible matter because they don't chew it properly. Cows don't regurgitate the grass intentionally, so.. you can decide who is smarter.

    The composition of bones is mostly of minerals and the flesh of animals is not a great source of minerals.

    Its like I am having a conversation with a vegan.

    “Must have been trained to attack”
    This statement is often made by Maul Talkers after a horrible pit bull attack. It is used to deny the pit bull’s responsibility and the breed’s genetic history by shifting the blame onto the dog’s owner. The term is also used to victimize pit bulls. What goes notably unmentioned by Maul Talkers are the many disfiguring and deadly pit bull attacks that involve “loving household” pit bulls that were never trained to attack prior to the dog’s berserking incident.

    Your the one that said gorillas don't chew cause they are stupid....not me.

    So I guess you've never made stock either? People that eat this way eat nose to tail (there are plenty of HG tribes as precedent for this). Actually I was thinking you might be a vegan since you don't seem to know some of this stuff, but I guess not.

    You could look into things like how fat soluble vitamins (D, A, and K2 primarily) actually increase the absorption and use of various minerals. Theres lots of info, just google on.
    Stock?

    I already know A, D, K2 work together with amino acids, calcium, magnesium and other nutrients to form bone and control metabolism.

    The flesh lacks essential minerals for bone formation. Do you have the nutritional information of blood?

    The difference between me and paleo/primal/vegan followers is that I follow the truth... not what someone puts infront of my nose as false truth. Knowledge for its own sake is useless.

    I don't think you understand.
    No one here is advocating eating flesh (muscle meats) alone.
    This is a much more broad approach including flesh/muscle meat and fat, organs, seafoods including raw shellfish (a good deal of minerals there), and some vegetable and fruits as one sees fit, just not central to ones diet.


    BTW, Gorillas also known to "chew their cud" so to speak... by eating the partially digested fecal matter that they pass.
    Yum!
    They sometimes even share it with each other, or other gorillas will steal it and eat it.
    Not going there.

    Paleobird, if you saw the picture of my meal from the "What have you eaten today thread" that I posted yesterday, you could be proud. Not that I care if you are, but I think you would be.

    I pretty much only eat veggies if they a) enhance the flavor of my meal (so I end up using them as faux spices in that way) or b) are fermented because I like getting my probiotics in a natural package (boo expensive pills) and I love the tangy flavors.

    I'm slowly going more and more carnivorous myself. Been overloading on eggs too recently.

    Cows actually "chew their cud" as well.

    And just to be clear, muscle meat is a great source of often missed minerals from veggies such as selenium, zinc, iron, copper, and phosphorous. Get enough meat in your diet and never need to pop a Brazil Nut for the selenium ever again.

    And I won't even BEGIN my dissertation on why eggs...

    Are.

    Fucking.

    AWESOME.

    I think potatoes are more of a salt delivery system for me. I fork mash them with about two tblsp of half and half or almond milk, then douse them with salt and a smidge of pepper. I also like them next to runny fried eggs. And sure enough, as the weather starts to warm, I'm eating them less and less.
