Diet and nutrition / Recipe request- Mince Meat "pie"
« on: March 16, 2011, 09:47:56 PM »
It's a special holiday for my religion on Sunday, and it's traditional to have a special breakfast. Breakfast on Paleo can be a little uninspiring, IMO, given our American penchant for endless carbs (pancakes, bagels, french toast, etc...) or cured meats (bacon, ham, etc...) for breakfast. I don't want to do eggs, because we do enough of those for regular breakfast.

I want to do something special.

I'm thinking it might be nice to do a variation on mince meat pie. Without a crust, it would be more of a mince meat bake. I was considering the following ingredients:
  • ground lamb
  • nuts: chopped walnuts and pecans
  • fruits: chopped apple, currants (if I can find them), raisins
  • spices: cinnamon, clove, nutmeg

I'm just wondering if anyone thinks that might work?

Any other ideas?

Diet and nutrition / Zombie Dream: Wish I could find brains...

Okay, so I was looking at the nutritional information for various organ meats, and I found that brians (beef, pork, lamb) have absolutely AMAZING amounts of Omega-3... and I'm pretty sure it's mostly DHA and EPA (not ALA, like flax).

But where to find it???

Who sells it???

For how much???

A few tablespoons of the gray matter per day would go a long way to balancing my Omegas.

Lamb (100g)
Total Omega-3 fatty acids 620.0mg
Total Omega-6 fatty acids   30.0mg

Oh, and by the way, Beef brains have over 1.2g of stearic acid (good saturated fat), which is over half of the saturated fat in the product.
