Episode Info

Episode Info: In Episode 147 of Keto Talk, Jimmy and Dr. Will Cole do a deep dive on the subject of offal and why it is so important to eat 'nose to tail'. “Especially for people following the carnivore protocol, this is great because offal is one of nature's multi vitamins.” – Dr. Will Cole “When you think back to our hunter gatherer ancestors when they got an animal they didn't let any part of it go to waste.” – Jimmy Moore Offal and organ meats are most popular when used from beef, pork, lamb, or poultry. The different kinds of organ meats that you can eat include: Brain Heart Liver Kidney Tongue Gizzard Sweetbread History Of Organ Meats Each culture has their own opinion of organ meat and each views it slightly different than the next. In some cultures, organs are consumed daily while in others certain organs are illegal to eat. One thing that stands true for all cultures is that organ consumption has changed over the years.Centuries ago, not only were organ meats just eaten, they were praised and loved. When food was hunted and gathered there was a lot of effort put into supplying it for families and tribes. Hunters didn’t just walk to the local supermarket to buy meat, they had to fight for it. And when you’re putting that much effort into hunting food for your family, you use every ounce of it that you can. Not only was it eaten just so it wouldn’t go to waste, the organ meat was reserved for the respected society members. Whether it was the political kings and leaders, the hunters, or the elders; the organ meats were regarded as the best and saved for the best.

No matter how common throughout the world though, eating organ meat isn’t a widely loved meat here in the United States, yet. Why People Avoid It I will admit that the taste can take some getting used to, but they provide far too many benefits to avoid it. Another reason that organ meats invoke negative perceptions is the thought of toxins. The misconception in our society is that the animals’ toxins are stored in their organs; and when eaten, the toxins now move into our bodies. This would make sense, however the toxins are not actually stored in an animal’s organs. The organs, the liver in particular, are where the toxins move to get filtered out. Once there, the liver doesn’t store it, but rather decide where it should be moved to. Most times, the liver moves any toxins to the kidneys where it is then expelled through urine. The toxins are removed from the animal’s organs and bodies before it has the chance to enter our bodies. Benefits The benefits of eating organ meat reach far and wide. Each one acts as a superfood that provides many more nutrients to our bodies than the animal muscle meat that we normally eat. 1. CoQ10 One of the main...
