Ahh….nothing like eating your breakfast and catching up on some blog reading…..

Well, you just might want to put your fork down for a moment….unless you have an iron gut…

Today we are talking about eating live foods.

No, not live, as in whole, nutritious fruits and vegetables.  More like live….as in ALIVE….

Casu Marzu (Italy)

One form of sheep’s milk cheese is full of crawling white worms. It is  over-fermented – in a stage of decomposition – and is known as Casu  Marzu. It is a traditional dish from Sardinia, Italy that is believed to  increase sexual desire.

Casu Marzu is made when the cheese fly lays eggs (about 500 eggs at one  time). When the eggs hatch, the maggots (larva of the fly) begin to eat through  the cheese. The soft texture of the cheese is a result of the acid from these  thousands of maggots’ digestive systems breaking down the cheese’s fats. But see  for yourself.

The most important aspect of eating Casu Marzu is that it should be eaten  when these wriggling maggots are alive, or else it is full of dead maggots and  is considered to be unsafe. It is also advised to wear eye protection while  eating as these maggots can jump as high as half a foot, straight into the eye.  Also, not only could this food cause allergic reactions and intestinal larval  infection, but it may also lead to vomiting, nausea and deadly diarrhea. Still,  people risk their lives to eat it.”

liver and cheese…

OK, I KNOW YOU ARE EXPECTING AN UPDATE FROM ISRAEL RIGHT NOW, BUT YOU CANNOT IMAGINE HOW BEAT UP I AM!!  I HAD A VERY EMOTIONAL DAY AT THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM AND IT HAS SAPPED ALL MY ENERGY FROM MY TIRED BODY.  I’M GOING TO GO TO SLEEP AND I WILL UPDATE YOU SOON….MEANWHILE….ENJOYThree handsome male dogs are walking down the street when they see a beautiful, enticing, female Poodle. The three male dogs fall all over themselves in an effort to be the one to reach her first, but end up arriving in front of her at the same time.

The males are speechless before her beauty, slobbering on themselves and hoping for just a glance from her in return.

Aware of her charms and her obvious effect on the three suitors, she decides to be kind and tells them, “The first one who can use the words liver and cheese together in an imaginative, intelligent sentence can go out with me.”

The sturdy, muscular black Lab speaks up quickly and says, “I love liver and cheese.”

“Oh, how childish,” said the Poodle. “That shows no imagination or intelligence whatsoever.” She turned to the tall, shiny Golden Retriever and said, “How well can you do?”

“Um… I HATE liver and cheese,” blurts the Golden Retriever.

“My, my,” said the Poodle. “I guess it’s hopeless. That’s just as dumb as the Lab’s sentence.” She then turns to the last of the three dogs and says, “How about you, little guy?”

The last of the three, tiny in stature but big in fame and finesse, is the Taco Bell Chihuahua. He gives her a smile, a sly wink, turns to the Golden Retriever and the Lab and says… “Liver alone. Cheese mine.
