Pork – Organ Meat
(If you don’t eat PORK, I will soon share this recipe’s equivalent made with FISH )

Fat: Good nuts – Bad nuts
We need FAT in our food. It is essential.
Our body can build all the fat it needs out of the food that we eat, regardless of whether it is protein, carbohydrate or fatty in nature, with the exception of two kinds of fat. That means that if we don’t have them in our daily diet and in a sufficient amount, after a while we get sick and we might even die if this is for a prolonged period of time. For this reason they are called essential: Linolenic and Linoleic acid, (unsaturated fat), known as the omega 3 and 6.
