To eat with a fuller consciousness of all that is at stake might sound like a burden,
but in practice few things in life can afford as much satisfaction
Hi, I’m Danielle, but you can call me Goose. I started Wild + Whole as a way to share the things that I love about cooking with wild game, eating whole foods, and living a healthy mindful lifestyle.
I am blessed to have found myself calling the rolling prairies and badlands of North Dakota my home. Over the last few years I have had the opportunity to hunt and cook a variety of wild game which has made a huge impact on my lifestyle and diet. I no longer want to rely on buying factory farmed meat because it is extremely rewarding and satisfying to know where your food comes from. I appreciate wild game not just for the flavor and sport, but for the nutritional value that comes from eating a natural diet rich in variety, free from hormones or antibiotics. After all, you are what you eat, eats.
When I first started cooking with wild game I was a little lost and needed guidance. I searched all over the internet looking for recipes and tips, but most of what I found were unhealthy.
There are a few great blogs and recipes for wild game out there, but there aren’t many that focus on eating wild game as part of a regular, healthy diet.
Wild game can be so healthy and delicious, why do we always need to cover with bacon or make sausage? Not that it isn’t nice to indulge in those things every now and then, but it is important to live by an 80/20 diet. It is my belief that when we nourish ourselves from the inside out, we feel better, look better, and even think better.
All of my recipes with meat use wild game and fish. All of the wild game has been hunted ourselves, but if I can’t shoot or catch it, I have chosen to use sustainable wild caught seafood or substitute grass raised meat. My hope is that this blog inspires you to cook wild game, make mindful choices about what you consume and most importantly, to live well!
