I suck at checking back with updates on my posst!
Dutchie, I find it interesting you craved fatty fish when paleo–that seems to relate well with what Masterjohn wrote about Inuit diets being high in marine oils (I can’t remember the details though).
I ate and liked herring a lot growing up. And fish roe/caviar. But after moving to Minnesota at age 20, I pretty much stopped eating seafood for practical reasons.
No, I couldn’t eat raw fish. I’m too chicken with that kind of stuff. Though it makes sense it’s more easily digested. I sometimes get cod, which I also grew up eating at least once a week, and if I accidentally overcook it, I feel so sick afterward! My mom would just simmer the filets in water with bay leaf and peppercorns and then we’d eat it with boiled potatoes, vinegar, olive oil and crushed raw garlic.
Sometimes the cod I get here is great, other times it’s hard (when fresh) and tastes like crap. Not sure why that is, but now I know to press the meat a little to check before buying.
I think I’ve lost my ability to sense cravings. I don’t even have them much anymore. I suppose it’s the result of too many restrictions.
