    You could certainly mail avos. People sell cases of them online & ship them all the time. Haven't you ever gotten a fruit basket or a case of grapefruits in the mail, in the dead of winter?

      I do the same thing, especially with eggs. Sometimes I crave them, other time the idea of them makes me nauseated. I think it has to do with what your body needs at that time.

        My theory is that coconuts are some sort of primal/paleo survivors that we are intuitively drawn to, kinda like our relationship to fatty, cold water fishes, foods so yummy & good for us that we connect with them on a deep level, more than many other foods. What other food does these? They float for days & weeks to get from place to place to reseed themselves in new environs. They are food, drink, fuel, housing, transport (canoes), gardening tools, kitchen utensils, art, hell what have I missed...? Like bamboo & hemp, they are amazingly versatile & useful. I've been coo-coo for coconut since I was a wee child. Fell in love with coconut creme layer cake when I was a toddler, before I discovered chocolate. And even after the chocolate, coconut was still my favorite. I got re-aquainted w/ them in Jamaica in the early 80s, ala tender young coconuts in the mornings after a hard night of partying & have been singing their praises pretty ever since, even while CW for many years demonized them & their oils.

          I thought I saw in the post office on a poster that fruit was a no-no. Maybe I can send them Fed Ex.

          Well, if it makes anybody feel better, I sometimes have to open several avocados before I get a good one.

            Preach on, brother. I can't wait to hear about your coconut cheesecake. *faints*

            Okay, all you Californians need to stop talking about avocados rolling in the street. It makes my heart hurt. I don't want to tell you how much money I shell out for then every few days. I think I need to move West again.

              I promise not to tell on you. We can start an Underground Avocado Export Service. I'd offer you something from the DC Metro area but we just seem to specialize in politicians. And they definitely spoil quickly, and should not be exported to such a pristine place as Santa Barbara.

                You have redeemed yourself a TINY bit with this comment... Went shopping today, and the avos were a dollar each - on sale. But to have EIGHT friggin' avocado trees - holy persea americana! I just went as green as an unripe avo skin.

                Betorq - My intro to coconut was the Mounds Bar, which was my favorite candy bar throughout my childhood, until it got replaced by the York Peppermint Patty / Junior Mints duo. If I can't find After Eight mints or Fazermint, that is. Dude, you better be glad that I am already firmly matrimonied - I already was working on a decent forum crush, and now I read that you have cats and love them?!?! How much harder can you make this for me?? (I have adored cats my entire life, and currently play caretaker to a colony of 6 tabby mutt males, 5 of which are some variety of orange - the last one is graphite in color.)

                Hello Paleobird! What can we do to put some psychological pressure on sb so she sends us all avos anyway??
                I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

                  Yep I had a 6 eggs a day phase.

                  Probably true.

                  You could ship just about anything Fed Ex. They don't care.

                  Eww. That's OK, keep the politicians on that side of the continent please.

                    I am well-matched with my guy, we go back quite a way (sophomore year of high school), and I probably wouldn't find someone so easy to live with, so I'm not about to trade him in, and have never been tempted. There just is something about betorq that really speaks to me. And I don't mind doing him the favor of inflating his ego on occasion...

                    Do you know if he is one of the leg-shackled?

                      I'm not sure on that account, but have you seen his Before & After Pics? He's post #4511.

                        Teflon-brain here had a hard time finding it, but I did. He looks good, just like I thought he would! If I were single, I would definitely ask him out myself. Alas, I happen to be one of those faithful types. Just not goody-two-shoes enough not to compliment him on it! So, here goes -

                        Hey Betorq! YOU LOOK GOOD!

                          I know what you mean. I think that is something you really should be asking him, not me.

                          Well, see what you've gone and done Betorq? You get all my lady friends all hot and bothered. This thread is getting so steamy, I have to wipe down my screen.

                          • i'm still in my egg phase. i have loved eggs since I was a little kid -- i could easily sit and eat a dozen hard boiled ones. I just love the darn things. Particularly hard boiled and/or deviled. Goodness knows why!

                            When I was vegan, it was eggs that I really, really missed. And when I wasn't vegan anymore, i was like "woohoo, eggs!" and -- well -- I still eat at least 3 a day. I still love them. I don't think it's a phase, now.

                            OMG, I ahd to list on DS's kindy intake/interview form what he eats in a day and when. It was like this:

                            7 am: berries and raw yogurt with cod liver oil and two brazil nuts; 3 eggs in butter; 1/2 cup steamed veggies in bone broth.
                            kindy time: fruit, buns or whatever they feed him.
                            1 pm: beef strips or mince patties with mustard and mayo, cut veggies (usually 1/2 cucumber and 1/2 bell pepper plus cabbage leaves), apple or orange -- nibbles on this all afternoon
                            5:30 pm: chicken or fish, veggies steamed in bone broth and tossed with olive oil, berries with yogurt and flax seed oil and sunflower and pumpkin seeds (soaked).

                            you should have seen her eyes pop out of her head. LOL "Wait, he eats this much in one day?" and I said "yes, I haven't calculated, but I think he gets about 2200 cals per day." And she goes, "my god. my goodness." LOL

                              Yes, that's my other job, part-time mind you... bothering hot ladies, steaming up screens...

                                I was vegetarian once for about a year back in college. I can't imagine being seriously vegan though.

                                Thats so funny when you freak people out like that with how much you can eat. That wold be so cool to have been raised Primal and not have to have the body get past all the health problems left over from years of CW misinformation.
