  • Sugar might be good too then... It's fairly benign.

        Now you are talking, that is just about my favorite! I'm glad to hear you two confirming what I'd been wanting, sugar of course!
        There's a recipe I got from Derp's journal a while back that I've been wanting to try :
        Episode 191 - Lemon Gummy Squares - Healthy Living - YouTube

        Sugar or eggs? Sugar would be more fun, that's for sure. From I've read the way to reintroduce a food is to have a little twice a day for 2 days and monitor reactions.

        • That gummy recipe is great, best one I've seen for sure. I tried a few other methods early on and was disappointed. I've made 4 or 5 batches since I started using the recipe in that video (well, almost the same, I do use honey in them sometimes), all have turned out much better.

          Only minor problem I seem to have is with too much foam on the top sometimes, which makes a weird sort of extra-rubbery layer if it gets too thick. Not sure what causes it, it doesn't always happen when I make them.

For the past month I've been on the autoimmune protocol in attempt to deal with my Hashimoto's and chronic allergies. Allergies are slightly better, but I see no improvement in the Hash's; my temperature was 96.7 yesterday and I have no energy to work out. I'm on thyroid meds and progesterone and the doctor is monitoring my hormones.

            Since I am about to reintroduce foods I eliminated during the protocol which do you think would be the most beneficial to add?
            Stick with it. I used to have chronic hay fever and allergies to pets, dust, certain foods. Now I get none of it, I have a dog now. I really think allergies are a symptom of low metabolism.

            • Em, do you mean stick with the autoimmune protocol or the Peat additions?

                I think she means stick with peat bc she mentioned slow metabolism.

                  Okay, the slow metabolism and the allergy connection makes a lot of sense to me. Over the years I've seen several acupuncturists for allergies, some helped to alleviate my symptoms (most didn't) but they all said that my body was "cold and damp" and the goal was to get it warmer. From what I understand the approach in Chinese medicine is to get the body healthy so it can tolerate stimuli as opposed to western medicine where the approach is if you are allergic to something then you need to avoid it. If eating Peat style could help my allergies and thyroid I would be so pleased.

                  • For me my hives got much better since I cut out grains and seed oils. That was my initial reason for going primal (and if i lose some weight... Great... Turned out I didn't really lose much but gained some muscle). Now with more peat implementations I still avoid grains (rice, etc) as much as I can.

                    I get hive attacks now after a few days of eating out at restaurants. I am allergic to everything in life... Cat dander, cockroaches, dustmites, cedar pollen, st Augustine grass (one of the 2 most comment lawn grasses), pecan pollen, mold, etc etc etc. I think I have had less than 5 moderate to serious hives cases in the past year.

                      • What did you Peat today?

                        So today is a weird day of food for me:
                        -bits of fatty neckbone beef (maybe 6-8oz) in bone broth
                        -2x light coconut milk in cold brew coffee with cinnamon
                        -some watermelon (1-2 cups)
                        -chocolate milk with 1/2 quart grassfed whole milk, cacao nibs, raw cacao, vanilla extract, simple syrup (sugar boiled in water boiled down to syrup... Good way to add sugar to cold liquids), instant espresso, gelatin.


                        Post workout:
                        -oj + frozen watermelon + egg white protein slushie
                        -pineapple with coconut custard
                        -last of the pumpkin flan & mango custard (I have a bit left over of each from making the how-to vids)


                        So much sweets today...
                        Oh and I don't react to the grassfed milk with added vit D. So I don't know why I was bloated from regular organic milk but whatever. I will buy 1-2 quarts of this grassfed local dairy (not raw & lightly homogenized) every week. Not going to go crazy on dairy.

                          AI protocol is basic paleo and no eggs, nuts, dairy, coffee/tea, alcohol, sweeteners or nightshades.
                          Have you eliminated/re-introed any of the above listed before? Do you suspect you are genuinely sensitive to any of the above? From a Peat metabolic perspective, order of importance to reintro, I believe, would be sweeteners, dairy, coffee, egg yolk, then the nightshades you actually like and miss, with nuts remaining off limits just because, screw nuts- total trash food IMO.

                          • I have a confession... I still eat a tbsp of natural Jif here and there. Nothing like 3lbs of pb in a month like I used to though.

                              I've had 2 egg yolks in the last 2 days, so far I haven't noticed a reaction. Of the list I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to peppers, not sure about the other nightshades. I know this because I made Hubby some fermented hot sauce (along the lines of Tabasco), at the end of a week you strain it and even wearing a surgical mask didn't help. I started sneezing and my eyes watered like crazy. Hubby came to the rescue and finished, he had no problem even w/o a mask.

                              The next thing I'm going to reintroduce is sugar. According to the AI protocol you're supposed to wait a couple of days between reintroducing foods.

                              I'm thinking of combining what I know from Chinese medicine for my condition, along with the Peat stuff, there is a lot of overlap. No raw veggies ( I'll keep the carrot), no cold food ( I'll have my OJ at room temp) and add ginger to foods. I was eating a fair amount of salad and I think that's not that good for me.

                              • Yeah, I haven't eaten a veggie in weeks. Maybe a carrot or two, of course trots and tubers and some veggie fruits (tomato, sweet pickle) but no salads, no leafy greens. I did have a few leaves of romaine and celery in a fruit smoothie and that was fine, but not even my idea. Don't miss veggies at all!
