I'm so plan jane compared to you. i typically make a burger patty with my salad or mix in my ground beef with kale and lemon juice...on top of it you're eating organ meat. I think i'm going to try the pet food meet since it has some organ meet. Can you even taste the organ meet? How do you cook your organ meat? Do you use a slow cooking method?
When you speak of liver, what kind of liver in particular are you referring to...Beef, duck, chicken, and i don't really know what other type of livers are available.
BTW, I love pate, so I guess I've tried some form of organ meat. But it's mixed and blended into this scrumptious paste. It's typically it's made from duck liver. Is your recipe with duck liver?
Never heard of the word offal until you referenced it. Now I know. Damn you're teaching me a ton. Okay, i'm going to be picking your brain for the next 10 years. Hope you don't mind. I'm a total kid when it comes to health and nutrition.
Speaking of picking your brain, have you heard that a shot of apple cider vinegar can stabilize your fasting glucose levels?
Love the idea of foodiments. I eat brazil nuts for selenium, but other than that I haven't really broken down how my foods contribute to my daily nutritional requirements. i do supplement with vitamin D & E. I take Coq10, Fish Oil, and Curcumin bc of my family history of heart disease and cancer. I take iodine because as a kid and into my adult life my limbs were always cold and I considered myself cold blooded. But that's been getting much better since I switched to a low cab diet. I'm also concerned about my iodine intake because my mother is allergic to it (go figure, she's korean and seaweed is a staple in their diet) and probably didn't get a lot in the womb or as a child. I take magnesium as well. Can liver eliminate some of these supplements?
Man I have to skim through Mark's book again and I'll have to check out the fitness guide. For my resistance training routine, i also use body weight and resistance bands type exercises. I do it in the style of body by science...lift as heavy and as slow as you can for roughly 1:30 or till exhaustion. My goal is for a year and see how my body responds. In the end it's great bc it's 30 minutes once a week. I'm actually going to do a workout in a few minutes.
BTW, I've noticed you spoke about bone broth. What kind of bones (don't tell me, you're getting it from the pet section as well. :-) just checked it out)? How long are you cooking it? does it come out a white milky color? As I said earlier, my mother is korean and bone broth is a soup that is eaten quite regularly. AMAZING but the prep is interesting as it requires a quick boil to remove the coagulated blood and strands of meat on the bone, then a long boil. Probably not grass fed meet, but they tend to remove as much fat as possible. If you're ever in a bind, go to a korean restaurant and order solong tang without the noodles. Delicious.
Last, awesome that you have been able to reduce your seizure meds by 25%. Hopefully, one day, it can be 100%. Amazing what the right kinds of food can do for your body.
Gotta run. Take care.
