Do you use any unique or different foodstuffs such as these? How do you feel about it?

I grew up in the rural Deep South in a family with five brothers. They hunted. I remember eating rabbit, possum, raccoons. When I went to France I encountered a lot of rabbit again, lapin, served up with a fancy sauce, and frog legs and snails.
A few summer backs when I was renting an apartment in Paris, the local butcher used to tease me that he was going to pawn off the horse meat for the ground beef I requested. I said my prayers.
People all around the world eat all kind of meat. But in the past decade or so, I have been moving more toward the eating pattern of my ancestors: lots of greens and peas, and beans, and sweet potatoes and rice and other grains, and very little meat of any kind. Fish a couple time per week, as a health throw-in.
So enjoy your turtles; years ago I had the pleasure, and as I remember, it tasted just like chicken, with a little heavier flavor.
