    Peanuts are off limits b/c they are prone to mold contamination, corn too. And the mold is a known carcinogen from what I'm reading.

    I do love peanuts though... it's really a shame.

    I also love almonds so I'm getting by pretty well. Except I just discovered last night that my beloved lightly salted almonds are dunked in one of three different veggie oils, so I guess I'll have to buy them raw and oil/salt them myself so it can be done in a good for me oil - I bet they'd be good in coconut oil! Might try that tonight!!!

      oh that's right!! I forgot about that. And I guess even organic grown ones would be as well. I need to open that jar of almond butter & see how it tastes! Might be just the ticket when you just need "that little something". Let us know how roasting your own almonds works out! You could do the same with pecans...walnuts...etc. Even add a little spice(s) to them too!!! Good idea!

        I wrote this on Hanna's journal, I was thinking about this last night:

And if he didn't feel bad after eating them, he would probably eat them again .
        I think we're all different, some of us cope well with (lots of) dairy (or eggs, or a little rice one in a while), others just can't eat any. But if it works for you (like rice for primalcajun) maybe you've just adapted to it. If you see it doesn't do you any harm in the long run (and if it's not 'sabotaging' any weight loss or causing auto-immune issues) why stress over a little this or that because "it's not Paleo/primal"?

            Weekend trips without the kids are nice. Everyone needs some time away to de-stress.
            I LOVE PB. It is a trigger food for me so i have not had any in ages. I noticed when i was in Earth Fare they had some chocolate PB. People are so evil.

              Yup. Legumes are on the no no list for mold and Lectins?. However, my husband makes fabulous chili which will not avoid. I still have PB too once in a while or peanuts in an emergency situation. I love almond butter, but can binge on it easily. I sometimes have almond butter and a banana for breakfast when I get tired of eggs.

                Leonard Cohen! I love Leonard Cohen! I was listening to him at the gym last night. 'Who by Fire' is excellent for stalking around the track, with long determined strides. What a great treat to look forward to!

                        Wow, have been very busy these last days. And won't be home tomorrow all day, as I'll be in Disneyland Paris with 8 kids all day (and 8 hours in a bus ).

                        Just a entry, because I want to go to sleep early, I have to get up at 4h30 tomorrow!
                        first of all: anyone seen this film: Free Worldwide Online Premiere Cinema | FOODMATTERSŪ => really interesting! You can still watch it for free until tomorrow evening! Just enter a name and e-mail address.

                        I've made quiche (without crust of course ) with broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes and pancetta (Italian bacon) as my lunch tomorrow, have packed a few BBBBalls to have for breakfast and some nuts as a snack.

                        For today I've made pork cheeks, for the very first time. I made them in the slow-cooker and boy that was so good!!! Very tasty and tender and lovely. I made it with shallots, turnips and Belgian Westmalle trapist beer (a dark brown beer). So yummie! I roasted some pumpkin with chili flakes, salt, pepper and cumin in the oven as a side dish.

                        Yesterday I had an intro-class at a local CrossFit gym (20 minutes drive from my place). I went there with my kids and now they all want to join . My oldest son D (16) will be going to WOD with me and DH 2 times a week and the 2 younger sons will be joining the kids WOD's on Saturday morning. My whole body is hurting now, but it was such fun! I was even able to do 3 burpees and 5 chin-ups (with help of a rubber band). I'm looking forward to going again.

                        OK, I'll be back on Monday, probably (will need Sunday to recover ). Have a nice weekend!

                          I so want to check out crossfit, but the membership is too expensive for us right now. Have a great time at Disney!!!

                            Wow, Disneyland Paris with 8 kids. That's only slightly insane! So, my big question. Can one stay primal at Disneyland Paris?:-) Hope you have a super time.

                            Not sure I can do primal. Been trying about 2 1/2 months. My problem is that I have no illnesses, no stomach upsets, nothing. I think my one issue -- migraines -- is a nitrate, chemical additive type thing -- and it seems to be gone. Other than that, I'm back to gaining. Weird. I mean, I feel great after a pint of really good ice cream. I feel fine with cheese in general unless I have too much. I feel great with peanuts and legumes. Rice and grains not so much -- but certainly not any issues. The meats, fishes, fowls, and eggs just don't make me feel good. Fruit makes me feel great as long as I can eat other food. I'm not a fruitarian:-) Lettuces, fruits, goat cheeses, coconut water (and coconut milk in smoothies), kombucha, green-white-rooibos type teas, ice cream (a good kind) -- those are the things that make me feel good. Weird. Some bizarre form of primal that would be.

                              Pam...you're post just reminded me!! The way you eat sounds very much like my honey's sister. She can not tolerate meat well. Eats very little. Maybe a little chicken on occasion but not much. They do eat salmon frequently...they live in Idaho so can get it very fresh. She eats alot of yogurt...alot of vegi's...cheeses...used to eat lots of pasta's but she went gluten free last summer & I don't know if she replaced with rice pasta or not. Living up there of course she has access to alot of fruit, so she does eat alot of that as well. She thinks she has a bad gall bladder, so she tries to be careful. She is not overweight...never has been & has maintained her weight all her life! But to me she seems to be sick alot.

                              I'm not sure I would worry about being all that primal. hell there were probably days when all the Grok family had to eat was fruit, vegi's some nuts or seeds, cause they didn't have any meat to eat!!! As long as you can stay close to it what the heck!! You have to do what feels good to you!!

                              sleep tight! I'm off to bed!!

                                So, if I skip the yogurt and too much cheese and all pasta, do you think I'll survive well? Gosh, how does one even figure out they have a bad gall bladder or bad adrenals or whatever? Well, I am virtually never sick -- just that time I tried too much dairy -- but I am quite fat, so maybe I'll be okay:-) My youngest son always tells me it doesn't matter what diet I follow anymore -- I just need to lose the unhealthy fat!

                                Candy in Wonderland -- Just how primal was Disneyworld Paris?
