  • Just a thought but if your body is getting used to anti-diarrheals then you may need to stop for a month to let your body normalize.

    • You can still have potato salad - if you make it with homemade paleo mayo. Google recipes for miracle whip if that's what you normally use as the dressing (some do - like my mom) - substitute honey or stevia (ugh) instead of sugar. I still make deviled eggs - but I make my own mayo now. It's quick and easy... honestly.

          • You use bacon, onion, white vinegar with the potatoes. This is the recipe I use Authentic German Potato Salad Recipe - Allrecipes.com

            • I love potato salad when it's made with vinegar instead of mayo. Coleslaw too!

              • Ooops forget the quote............. this was for the anti-diarrheal comment from Pedidoc.

                I only use them rarely - only when I absolutely have to. In the past 6 months I would say I've only used them 3-4 times.

                  I still haven't tried to make my own mayo. I used Best Foods (Helmans) ............ Miracle Whip = nastiness!!! commercial stuff gives me heart burn, so even when I do endulge I do it very sparingly. Also - my potato salad doesn't have sweetener in it. Eggs, potatos, mayo, mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper, dill pickles and pickle juice.

                        Now the boys request this one. It's probably the bacon. I use coconut sugar or a touch of honey instead of the sugar.

                          Swap the mayo for a non-commercial version and you're good to go. My potato salad doesn't have sweetener either. People seem to think potato salad tastes better with miracle whip (which is mayo with sweetener and spices), and in some cases I'd agree (when the sweetness is cut with yellow mustard) but I will make mine without it.

                          I used to want to make potato salad with onions, cheese, cubed potatoes, and hidden valley ranch dressing. That's how I always ate my baked potato and figured I might as well make just turn it into a potato salad. Haven't done so yet, though... but now I would definitely like a baked potato with ranch dressing!

                            No reason you cannot make it your own by adding eggs. I love German potato salad, especially when I use ACV.
                            Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

                            • I've been struggling to get our fish pond water clear. It has that pea soupy look to it. Floating algae is the culprit. We haven't found a solution. We've added all the stuff that the store says to add and it doesn't do anything. Yesterday I was reading about how to lower to ph since its been on the ridiculously high side for the past 2 years. Its off the charts on the dip stick color range - so I'm guessing its running around 9-10. VERY alkaline. One thing I read said to put in Distilled White Vinegar. Well, I don't that kind - but I did have a quart bottle of ACV - so I dumped that in. It turned the water a very dark black/brown - exactly as it does when we add the sludge-away chemicals. I should test it again and see what happens. I did get out the water testing kit yesterday and everything is fine except for the ph - it turns the test water bright purple! VERY HIGH ph. I have to find a way to bring it down. I've added well water, that isn't working. Will test with a strip and see what happens.

                              NOPE - still purple....... dang.

                              • What about baking powder? Isn't baking powder supposed to be neutralizing?

                                Can you drain the pond and start over?
