Nose To Tail Nutrition
Nose to tail eating was a common practice in past generations. Society was more agrarian and families were able to raise their own food. Small family farms were numerous. Since food was raised at home, people knew what they were eating and the food chain was localized. People were far more likely to know their farmer.
Organ meats were a significant part of the diet as well as animal fats like tallow and lard. These nutrient dense foods were on the table regularly. Animals were more likely to be pasture raised and grass-fed. Today, the overuse of pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, and soil erosion has depleted soils of vital nutrients making food less nutritious.
Today's factory food culture leaves a lot to be desired and offers a lot of empty calories. It's far more difficult today to find nourishing foods which is why US Wellness farms have spent over 20 years building rich soils and practicing regenerative farming principles. Raising cattle on pasture takes more effort and resources but the end product is worth it in flavor and nutrition.
See Dr. Mercola's article today for information on widespread choline deficiency. People most susceptible are vegetarians, athletes, and those who consume large amounts of fast foods. Liver is one of those "nose-to-tail" foods that is high in choline and numerous other vitamins and minerals lacking in today's diet. If you're not sure about organ meats, try our Liverwurst or Braunschweiger as an introduction. We think you'll love it!
