    Bone broth is super-awesome. According to the "old wise" tales, it apparently can raise the dead -- I understand this to be a legendary example (or hyperbole) that it is in fact very nourishing if one is very sick, and as such, they might get well. But saying so is not as poetic. Raising the dead is much more poetic.

    We put a little bit of our thai curry paste into our chicken bones ot make the most awesome broth. It's not too spicy -- just a hint of the flavor.

    I'm still eating veggies, but you guys like me anyway.

    Heh heh. I have to.

    Not many people can say they've drank piping hot yak and not yakked.

    Ahem. Excuse me, I've been up since 0100, running on about 3 hours sleep and high on massive quantities of caffeine.

    I highly recommend them to anyone who has not tried them before.

    Here's another one that's great if you can get it... spleen.
    I can get pork spleen mostly. It comes in at the same as chicken liver at 13%...
    Beef spleen is higher at 21% raw (interesting that cooked beef spleen actually has HIGHER vitamin C than raw at 23%). I haven't seen that offered through my co-op, I'll have to ask.

    But beef liver only comes in at 2% of RDV per 100g and veal liver is only 1% of RDV per 100g. Choose your liver carefully

    OTOH lamb brains are 27% of RDV per 100g.

    So 400g of lamb brains per day will get you the RDV. A carnivore has to eat a lot of offal

    Yeah... I always make my pate from chicken liver. I prefer it.

    Rabbit livers are eaten lightly sauteed every chance I can get them... because they are DIVINE.
    I can never find any infor on them though.
    Hmm... I never see lamb brains on offer anywhere... I wonder if goat brains are similar in content.

    And actually it's not a big deal... You know she isn't 100% carnivore.
    She has stated repeatedly that she still eats veg that she likes... and uses things like lime in her Guac. or water.

    Let's see...
    1 avo, about 33% dv C., + a little chunk of tomato chopped, about 10% dv C, a lime... say an oz of juice... a squeeze of it goes in the guac and some in a glass of sparkling water. Total 57% C.
    4 oz chicken livers (in a day... that's not too much)... about 50% dv C

    Personally I would have put like an ounce of scallions in that guac for another 10% of C too... and had stinky breath for it, but whatevs.
    Wow... just some Guac and some livers and that's more that 100% of the C she needed. That's terribly difficult.

    Today I bought some beautiful clams... fresh live buggers. Because I need to feed my anemone, and me.
    6oz cleaned and cooked nice and gentle... 62% DV.
    Yummy.

    Vitamin c can be destroyed by heat so I wouldn't be reliant on cooked foods for C sources.

    I've been doing EMF with calorie control plus just got a Fitbit last week and am walking 5 miles daily...and I am gaining weight. Ack! So tonight I said "what the hell" and ate a 6 or 8 ounce porterhouse. Only steak. And it was good. I am replete.

    I'll be following along with your posts on a meat-centered diet. When I did this several years ago I had great success for awhile (weight loss, energy, outlook, etc) and then after about 9 months, I didn't. I still don't eat much fruit or green vegetables and try to limit wheat but it's more of a habit now rather than some deep concern for my health and well-being.

    As to the anti-nutrients in veggies and grains and the potential for adverse effects, Chris Kresser had an interview with Mat Lalonde and covered that topic in depth. The take-away is that the danger is somewhat overstated:

    I have heard that your need for certain vitamins, including C, changes with your diet. You need less than the RDA on a meat centered diet and more on a grain centered diet. Steffanson showed that he could eat nothing but boiled meat for over a year and not get scurvy. Anyway, "dirty carnivores" aren't going to be eating a 100% boiled meat diet. They're going to get a little veggies as spices, condiments and occasionally as side dishes as desired. Makes total sense to me. Even as a grain centered eater I rarely ate vegetables every day. Even as a grain centered vegetarian I ate fewer vegetables than I do now, which is quite sad.

    Well, starting this evening, I am going to be having a house guest for a few days which will be my first experience with trying to stay carnivorous while sharing meals with others.
    i have been doing this all along as i have the kids to feed. sometimes we just do diff meals. we have mince for example, i make them nachos and i make kitfo with the rest. or we have a roast with bone broth reduction gravy. they have roast potatoes, kumara and steamed veges with theirs. i just have the meat and gravy. same principle with lamb chops and steak. depending on if your house guests eat some form of starch, you could alway make something like a bollito misto, or portugese pork belly with clams ( which i make with wild hog and cockles), or even something a bit more dirty carnivore like cioppino. then they can have crusty bread and butter or some rice and some salad or veges to go with it and you wont just be eating the steak so to speak.
