    Heart is low in fat anyway, so you could definitely worry less about the crap that accumulates in animal fat that is so worrisome about CAFO meat.

    I don't know what heart you're getting, but when I'm done eating heart, my mouth is just coated in fat.
    I never know what to put in these things. I write songs!

    "You know you're primal when" you say something like this. I can't even imagine what someone outside the community would think upon hearing that.

    Our beef hearts come liberally covererd in fat. Perhaps yours was 'trimmed' before you got it?
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Yeah, I didn't even look at the issue from that angle, but that's a good point. Especially the heart, which seems to always be considered sacred in some way by hunting peoples.

    Heck I got grass fed lamb liver thawing in the fridge, but my wife didn't see it and cooked up some supermarket special chicken livers for dinner (1$/lb....pfft, I aint complaining). Anyway its fine. i downed my half pound
    Yeah, that's right where I stand on the issue. I figure the toxin load of occasional CAFO-organ-eaters like us is far lower than people who eat CW muscle meat all the time and you get the benefit of the extra nutrients. I eat conventional liver or whatever when I haven't had a chance to get out to one of the farms where I buy stuff or put in a US Wellness meats order.

    Organs are smooth muscle, what we consider "muscle meats" are skeletal muscle. I consider heart to be one of the most nutrient dense types of tissue, behind probably liver and maybe bone marrow.
