  • Thanks, Joanie! I like that Chèvre recipe. I don't often bake, either, but we have pot-luck lunches at work every few months, and I'm tired of the same person bringing the same jello-like "cheese cake" for the dessert. I really think she makes it from some sort of mix, it doesn't look like real cheesecake at all. I can never bring myself to taste it, but I bet it doesn't even have any sort of cheese in it.

    *sigh*

    While I'm lucky that none of my coworkers are vegan/vegetarian, most of them think "homemade" is combining two different kinds of mixes to make something. (Like, prepared frozen meatballs + gravy packet mix; or canned sloppy joe mix with ketchup and sugar added. Ugh!) And there's always the "healthy" macaroni salad.

      Cheesecake without cheese? That's a tragedy.

      I'm laughing at the prepared frozen meatballs. And "healthy" mac salad must have diet mayonnaise of course. One of my favorite icky meals back in the day was an eight ounce block of cream cheese melted into cannned chili and hot sauce. Eat with chips.

      I'm not saying I didn't use convenience foods before Primal, but I think I would have been embarrassed to bring sloppy joe mix with ketchup and sugar added - what the heck is that? LOL

      Please tell me how the cheesecake comes out.

        I just. I. Words fail me. How is that cooking? We have similar events at work and the cook-off aspect of it is pretty competitive. I sometimes cheat a bit and make 'assembly dishes' but that is something like this

        rather than an unholy combination of nonsense 'foods'.
        I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

        • Badgergirl, that's so beautiful. A perfect way to show that healthy and wholesome doesn't have to mean hours and hours of prep work. I'd be all over that.

                    • Sadly as a fourth child, I don't know if I was an early talker or walker since I have no baby book and my parents didn't remember much of my early years. Total lightweight when it comes to drinking so probably not...

                      I know a lot of people who will want to be buried with their animals but I can't help but think it is a little creepy. My dogs get the best care during their lives but I am cheap after they die.

                      I think your Leptin reset is interesting. I tried it once but had a tough time eating that much protein in the morning, it made me gaggy. Hopefully it will help with your sleep patterns. I think Dr. K may have some good thoughts but then he he tries to blame everything on Leptin. He lost me when he claimed it cured PCOS. That and the huge chunk of protein in the morning.

                          First a word about eating a 50 protein gram breakfast within 30 minutes of dawn or when one awakens. Unless you eat a single-item breakfast, or eat something cold, it’s not easy to prepare something and eat it in that time frame first thing in the morning. Dr. K must have a housekeeper or equivalent.
                          I'd take that 50 grams stuff as a guide line, 50 for me ain't a problem, but if you're not built for that amount, I'd just do what you can!

                            Yes on the n=1 - being ahead of any curve as a child is a bitch as you get older. Aside from the alcohol thing, the expectations abound. Or maybe the expectations lead to the alcohol.

                            It's funny, but all my life I gravitated toward first-borns and "only"s as mates. While those relationships were often hot, they brought with them some screaming fights and emotional head banging. The two "baby"s that I was with weren't as hot, but each brought me a semblance of peace and lasted over seven years each.

                            Yes, I've loved my pets, also, but that headstone took away any romantic illusion I had about being buried with them. I'm not fond of photos on headstones anyway, and that mock-up gave me the willies.

                            And I agree on the Leptin reset as a cure-all. Nothing is a cure-all. Our physiology is just too complex for one magic pill.

                            The 50 grams is okay. A four ounce burger of 95/5 ground beef and the protein shake goes down easily for a mere 275 calories. That chicken, feta, egg scramble was 625 calories and sat like a big lump. I just need to plan better.

                            On the pepper. In this country we have the right not to incriminate ourselves. So...

                            We city girls don't have pet rhinos! LOL

                            Yes, I guess meth is a killer. We did something when I was a kid called crystal meth, but it must have been different than what's being called that these days because I don't remember anyone falling apart like now. I used to love speedy drugs, but now, give me some doobage and I'm happy.

                            • A protein shake with meat on the side was the only way I got my 50 g of protein in when I was trying Kruse's thing. I didn't need it, but it was helpful in quickly beating my hypoglycemic symptoms early on in my Primal journey. A few eggs and a hunk of meat might get you there?

                              • Hi Nameless,

                                Because I am a counter of things, I put together a list of lower calorie options if I used one food. Not just because of calories per se, but the difference in how I feel after a 300 calorie breakfast (pretty good) and a 600 calorie one (stuffed).

                                The most efficient were:

                                Two scoops of a protein shake or whey supplement. ~240 calories, but I don't want to rely on them.
                                CAFO food: Pork loin ~202 calories; chicken breast ~275 calories
                                Grass fed or wild: 95/5 ground beef ~301 calories; 96/4 ground bison ~262 calories; squid ~274 calories; and pink salmon at ~297 calories.

                                Of those, the squid is so low cal that I'd have to eat 12 oz and while that's the perfect portion for supper, OMG on me choking down three quarters of a pound of squid for breakfast. Unless I made a squid shake.

                                Surprising to me, at 70 calories per egg, and 6.3 grams of protein per egg, I'd have to eat eight eggs to get all my protein and that comes in at 560 calories.

                                I know one-ingredient meals are artificial scenarios, but I needed a jumping off point for planning. Egg whites just for protein content would be more efficient, and that would be easy since I love egg yolks in other applications, so I could save the whites for breakfast instead of clogging my drain with them.
