Raw Animal Foods
« on: February 14, 2015, 09:37:05 PM »
Hi everyone,

Every now and again I try and experiment with adding some raw animal foods to my diet, however I'm not sure exactly what to look for. I don't know fi you guys have any raw meat in your diets, and do not wish to argue about whether it's right or wrong or safe etc, just basic examples of types of meats that can be found fresh enough and may taste good enough to be eaten in raw state, preferably not too stinky... Be it seafood, fish, internal organs, meats...
So far I've tried some poultry products that did not feel fresh and left me a bit "heavy".. some fish I've tried were OK but just couldn't get over the smell/aftertaste, although they were pretty fresh.

Any advice appreciated!

Only sushi for me, personally.  I do eat raw eggs sometimes.  Last I read, cooking was what made our brains bigger and let us grow as a species since we could start preserving foods to some degree.

Of course, sushi cuts would be pricey for you, but of course they're made and cut to be eaten raw, whereas everything else... just isn't.

GoodSamaritan is here and eats raw meat.  You can search his posts or call him out here - he should respond!

Sushi has also been frozen to extra cold temperatures to kill certain parasites.

I don't eat any raw meat, but I do eat a lot of rare beef, which is raw through most of its thickness.

I had no clue of this, interesting. Weird how this is not really noticeable, I guess its just because its frozen for only some hours.

If you buy fresh beef from the bucher and ground it yourself, it's pretty safe to eat raw. The more processed it is, the more chances for cross contamination and bacteria. But I've tried it this way a while back, and while I prefer it cooked up with meals, it's really not bad raw at all. I think a friend of mine had actually mixed it up with melted butter to give it a better flavor (I couldn't tell you if this idea is good, but it's an idea).
Another friend of mine loves raw bacon. She says it tastes the same as it does cooked. Not sure I could try it just because of the texture.
Let me know if you find any other ideas for raw meat, I would definitely be up for trying it.

Matt, I don't advocate this but am curious of your typical daily food intake?
