Every traditional culture ate some form of their animal foods raw. Every culture also cooked some of their food. In today's episode, Sally Fallon Morell explains the benefits of both cooking some food and eating some raw. While cooking does destroy enzymes, it also can make certain foods easier to digest (particularly vegetables). Eating raw animal foods ensures that we can enjoy the benefits of certain enzymes and particularly vitamin B6.

Sally describes various dishes from around the world that feature raw meat or fish products (such as steak tartare). She also gives ideas for those new to the idea of consuming raw animal products. She suggests starting with dairy products, like raw milk or cheese.

 

Many who recommend a raw diet would not include raw animal products in the mix. But Sally points out that science backs this traditional practice. She affirms that raw animal products can increase our energy and mental clarity, and help improve various body functions.

    I've actually listened to every podcast so far in this series and I find it to be one of the most informative podcasts regarding food nutrition and farming anywhere. I listen to them when I sort mail as a letter carrier. Please keep up the good work! Hilda, You are a very positive and thoughtful interviewer. You give your people time to speak and keep their trains of thought going without interrupting too much which is very refreshing. My family has benefited greatly from these!
