Eating bones for dinner is a great way to get a cheap Paleo meal!
Part of living a Paleo lifestyle involves eating the whole animal.
This offers a number of benefits, including added nutrition, helping the environment (by creating less waste), and providing an affordable meal for you, your family and friends.
Because most people just want the muscle meat, butchers usually end up with more bones and organs than they know what to do with.
This is great news for those of us who want to load up on the extra nutrients included in those bones and organs.
Despite the fact our society has recently gotten away from eating animals in their entirety, it used to be common practice.
Somewhere between demonizing fat and subsidizing grains and sugar, we forgot what nutrient powerhouses can be found by eating other parts of the animal.
An Unknowingly Delicious Dinner
Rediscover what your ancestors knew by enjoying this recipe for Slow Cooked Beef Neck Bones.
Whatever meat is left on the bones will fall off in the slow cooker, making easy pickings for you. Then you can dig/suck out the marrow to finish off the meal.
Once you’re done, you can reuse the bones to make bone broth and make this a dual purpose dish.
When you’re consuming organ meats and bones you want to be sure you’re sourcing your ingredients from healthy animals.
Healthy animals nourish healthy people.
