curried egg with cows brain

Considering how very nutrient dense offal is, it’s been surprisingly hard to find organ meat recipes that do really well in the nutrition ranking because so many of the recipes are ‘diluted’ with lots of sweet stuff to mask the taste.

That is, until Tristan Haggard sent me their long awaited ‘ketogenic edge cookbook‘.

Tristan and Jessica Haggard from Primal Edge Health moved from California to Ecuador to seek a healthier place to live and raise their family.

Clean water.  More sunshine.  Closer to the equator.

These guys are the real deal.

The recipes in their new cookbook document’s how Jessica lovingly makes sure they ensure they ensure they thrive with their food.  It’s not all offal, but it’s clean, nutrient dense and simple, even when it comes to the deserts.

    Marty, I love your work but sometimes your posts read like a cook-book for zombies

    I started cooking offal 50 years ago. At that time brains were a standard diet protein for stomach ulcers. As a young bride it was not my dream kitchen experience and of course curry was not allowed. I got damn good at cooking brains and white sauce was perfected as well. I have to admit I never made them again after my husbands recovery. Now days it’s lambs fry, or steak and kidney. I will be interested to look at these recipes.
