      There is a very high level of awareness there. They test schoolchildren, I believe.

      • Isn't that new hair thing great?! Mine are coming in dark and the gray ones are falling out. I have noticeably less gray hair at 54 than I did at 52!

        • The new hair is the ultimate great thing! Doing the impossible, that's what I like. Find me ONE CW diet or practice that will regrow hair!

          I hope those tapioca breads come out nicely and that you like them as much as I do. Or maybe that is not a good thing to wish on someone!

          I've heard Italians test children for lots of things, and somehow they manage to do it relatively inexpensively. Heart problems, for one. Their student athletes don't drop dead on the field nearly as often as ours do. Although this is just something I recall reading some time ago and I don't remember where, so I should research it before I throw it out there.

          • Do you ever worry that primal will just stop working for you? Once in a while I have a moment of panic that it is all too good to be true and I will once again be fat and sick and my hair will fall out and my skin will look like crap again. I know it is silly. Worrying about some crazy made up thing when I could be worrying about real stuff!

            • Yup, I have that same fear sometimes!

              Baby's in Italy are tested for celiac and 5 other diseases when they are just a few days old. My oldest son is born in Italy. I went home one day after giving birth, so I had to go back after a week to do the test (it's mandatory). They just take a little blood from the heel and a few weeks later the results are in.

              • That is fascinating! I wonder why? Other than the obvious, of course. (Because they might have it...)

                Forgot to buy sour cream yesterday, darn. I am very spoiled, I only like the cultured stuff with no additives. It is nothing like regular sour cream. Good on everything from fruit to veg to meat. But I can only get it at the food co-op. And what is up with the Meyer lemon shortage? No Meyer lemons anywhere. I asked, but the produce clerk didn't even know what a Meyer lemon is. Remember the olden days when the people who worked there actually knew something about the produce?

                • What is a Meyer lemon? I looked up photos and it looks like a regular lemon!

                  • It is less acidic and more complex in flavor than a regular lemon. I put them on everything. Also they are very, very juicy and have a thinner peel than the nasty hard conventional lemons.

                    Been cooking up a storm this afternoon. I realized I had a few things that needed to be eaten or frozen or cooked, maybe not in that order.

                    • Well, Easter is coming and you know what that means - coconut macaroons! Classic gluten-free dessert. Got some really good ones at the the food co-op. Also got some really good tomato soup made with beef stock and nothing non-primal. I'm really hungry lately! But I'm not going overboard with eating.

                      Weird weather. It has snowed almost every day for a week but there has been no accumulation. It is supposed to be like for the next few days. Rain/snow/rain/snow, moderate temps, then cold, then warmer. Changes every 15 minutes or so!

                        • New man, new hair, meyer lemons, tapioca buns. All is good in your world . I've seen the meyer lemons lately in the store, but never had them. Next shopping trip, I think. I'm counting on your work as to their fabulousness.

                          Great idea about the coconut macaroons, I may have to find a recipe and make some. We will be away over Easter, but it will be visiting our Primal friends in Nova Scotia, haven't seen them since they retired there last year. I could make them there!

                          As for your weather, I would love to send you some of today's accumulation from here. About 15 cm, or 6 inches. All yours. I'm done with this winter crap. Spring seems a long way off at the moment.

                          • Try this one:


                            Paleo Coconut Macaroons adapted from a recipe from Elana's Pantry
                            6 egg whites
                            1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt
                            1/3 cup raw honey
                            1 tablespoon vanilla extract
                            3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

                            In a mixing bowl whisk egg whites and salt until stiff. In a separate bowl, combine honey, vanilla and coconut. Gently fold coconut mixture into the egg whites.

                            Drop batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet, one rounded tablespoonful at a time.

                            Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned

                            My note: Obviously you don't need to use celtic sea salt. Any salt is okay.

                            I really like the Meyers lemons because of the IMHO superior taste, and also because they are really, really juicy. Even if they cost a bit more they are worth it because of the quantity of juice. Still looking for them.

                            • When my friend and i went to Whole Foods to get meyer lemons, they were crazy expensive 5.99 pound so instead we picked up sweet limes at 1.99 pound. They were tasty and not too limey. Tasted great in my alcoholic beverage!

                              • The only thing that makes coconut macaroons better is dipping the bottoms in chocolate. I liked these even before I liked coconut.
