I've often wondered if that's still true with all the pollutants in the oceans these days. Oysters are basically filters, right?
Same with liver.
I love oysters and chicken livers but I wonder if they are loaded with toxins.
Anybody know?

Oysters do have a bit more heavy metals than other seafood of comparable size for the reasons you stated. I personally only rarely eat them now when I used to eat them multiple times a week.

I actually try to avoid seafood cuz of this despite the plethora of beneficial compounds not found anywhere else.

I stick to sardines and related small fish, or salmon.

Chicken livers can be bad too but the difference is you can control it a bit more. Chicken that’s free range should be healthy.

I just made up some sausage patties with ground pork and chicken livers, damn good.

Edit- A quick look shows chicken livers don’t hold on to toxins.

Thanks, G-Chem!
I also usually stick to wild salmon, sardines, and anchovies.
And your sausage sounds great! 👍
I gotta get me some chicken innards. Haven't had any in a while. Love the livers & gizzards, but my favorite part of the bird is the heart.
A lot of people freak out when I say that. If so, I ask them "Have you ever eaten a hot dog or a slice of bologna?"
There's WAY more repulsive stuff in those things. Snouts, eyeballs, assholes...

Oh, and on the seafood subject...
I LOVE shrimp but I don't eat it much anymore after learning about the huge amount of bycatch involved in shrimping.
It's horrendous.

Simply mash avocado with a tiny bit of mayonnaise then stir in chopped hard-boiled eggs, celery, lemon juice, and herbs and you have my favorite avocado egg salad ready!

That sounds really good actually, I might steal that but alter it for chicken salad. That sounds like a great way to change up the fats and since most don’t use good avocado oil based Mayo this is the much better choice.

Well I making up a whole 30 style BBQ chicken today. Essentially I’ll toss in chicken thighs, some chopped tomato, jalapeños, garlic, onion, dates and top off with some spices. Slow cook until ready, then pull the chicken out, blend up the remaining stuff in the pot and pour it on the chicken.

Chicken BBQ with no added sweetener and tastes amazing (I could throw up a more detailed recipe if anyone’s ever interested.). Make a sandwich with some extra fresh onion and I like a little cilantro too for the metal detoxification benefits, besides the bun not a bad lunch. Have small salad or dipping veggies on the side.

Note: The bun ain’t Whole30 tho..

That sounds fucking awesome!

I haven't been eating super healthy at the moment because I'm preggo and my baby just wants carbs carbs and more carbs. Not necessarily anything sugary, but things like toast, cereal, granola bars, oatmeal, pasta etc. So nothing too unhealthy, but it's just that I'm used to eating HEAPS of fruit and nuts, but fruit makes me feel nauseated and nuts just aren't cutting it for satiating my appetite.

So, toast and cereal is pretty much forming 80% of my current diet lol
