#1. Organ meats
Kelsey says, Hi Liz and Diane- Thanks for taking the time to do this podcast! It has become a serious reference for my lifestyle choices! I’m making an honest attempt to Dianify/Lizify my life. I make and drink my own bone broth, have successfully brewed my own Kombucha, and have my first batch of raw Sauerkraut days away from being done fermenting. I’ve started taking Green Pastures Cod Liver/Butter Oil blend daily and being very conscious of what my body is telling me in respect to working out to avoid adrenal fatigue (I already have a very stressful job, yikes). I’ve even started cutting myself some slack because I don’t have the 6 pack abs I had in high school and college when I was an athlete. Oh yeah, and I eat a 99% Paleo diet. I slip up and have some ice cream once in awhile. Ok, so, in an effort to be as much of a clone of you two as possible, I’m attempting to eat organ meat. But Oh. My. Gosh. It makes me want to vomit. I don’t know why, but just handling beef liver induces a gag reflex. I have a beef tongue in my freezer that I want to make shredded taco meat with (Primal Palate recipe), but can’t touch it without wanting to hurl. I want to get some chicken liver to make pate, but I can’t think about it without wanting to barf.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?? I am fully aware of the benefits of eating organ meat and I know I am a lot greener by eating all parts of my grass fed, locally raised meat. It frustrates me that I can eat a nutritionally devoid, mystery meat, bun-less burger from Wendy’s while traveling without thinking twice, but have a strong aversion to organ meats. What is wrong with me? Is there anything I can do to stop this? I’ve been eating beef liver mixed in with meatballs so I can get the benefits, but since I know they it is in there I have to gag them down (even though they taste amazing). Please help!
#2. Dairy and Reproductive Hormones
Jen says, We started the Paleo diet for 30 days and found that milk products affect my family the most. My children LOVE their sandwiches for lunch so I caved for them on wheat. But I grind the wheat and soak it before preparing bread. Other than that we stay away from all processed food. Dairy has been an eye opener. I no longer have allergies or the sniffles if the weather changes. My children seem healthier as well. My question to you is could eating better sources of meat with the combination of no dairy put a hold on ovulating for my 13 year old? She has not had a period since we started this diet. Before stopping she never really had a regular period. It was sparatic. She used to eat cheese like it was the last meal on earth. It was really unhealthy the way she would gobble it up. (No, she can not possibly be pregnant). My thought was even though the package said that the milk contained no hormones; hormones were still entering the body. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated on the subject. Thank you. #3. What so great about Kombucha Julie from Facebook says, I must behind the times… so what is so great about kombucha? I know it is fermented and I believe it helps with your digestive system. Is there a recipe to make it yourself?

#4. Digestive enzymes & kombucha
Kelly says, Hi ladies, I love, love, love your podcast! I look forward to downloading the latest episode each week! My question is regarding digestive enzymes & kombucha. I’ve heard you say that a person can take too many of these types of supplements. How would I know if I’m over-supplementing? I tapered from taking digestive enzymes 2-3 meals a day to about 4 ounces of Kombucha daily and was feeling really good and “regular”. I went on a week’s cruise and did take the digestive enzymes with dinner every night, but still felt like my system was out of whack from the trip (I tried to eat as Paleo as possible, but did enjoy more alcohol than usual on the trip). Upon returning home, I bumped my Kombucha intake to 8 ounces daily, half before breakfast and half before another meal. It wasn’t helping so I’ve added digestive enzymes to 1 or 2 meals. Now I have some upper intestinal distress (I think it’s cramping) and I’m still not regular again. Could I b e overdoing it and causing problems similar to not having enough digestive enzymes? Thanks ladies! Mostly Paleo, cooked at home meals. Crossfit 4-5 times a week and 1-2 days a week of endurance training (under 1 hour for endurance training). 1 full day of rest. Sleep 7-8 hours most nights, otherwise still get 6 hours (pretty rare to get less than 7). High anxiety person but I’m in a position of fairly low stress. Supplement with generic antihistamine, Vit. D/calcium and Prilosec (full disclosure…I was totally off it for a period of time and when I started Crossfit the effect was so miserable on my stomach-1 WOD would leave my stomach badly burning in pain for days so I’m currently staying on it until after the Open). I eat plenty of good carbs to fuel all this activity. I do drink about 2 cups of coffee daily, with Trader Joes coconut milk. I crave the taste of coffee, not the caffeine (I will only drink two different brands of coffee).
#5. Sourdough starter instead of soaking? Spelt over Whole Wheat?
Sarah says, Hi! I’ve been listening to your show and loving all the resources! My husband and I have transitioned to a Paleo template but I still do some breads for our kids. I keep a loaf of Ezekiel bread in the freezer for occasional toast with almond butter…I make with soaked, dehydrated, roasted almonds…or french toast. I also make soaked tortillas to have on hand for when we’re out and need a quick snack. I’ve been debating going to a sourdough starter instead of soaking. Is one better over the other? Is there a kind of flour that would be better for example Spelt over Whole Wheat? Thank you!
