    When I first went primal, I would have killed for a slice of toast with butter and marmelade. I'm over that now, but I'm still fighting ice cream urges.

      Cornbread. That's about it since PB is pretty darn liberal! I'm more a dairy girl anyway. Dairy is on hold for now though.

        If it's chocolate ice cream, I've got a recipe for frozen mousse that's better than any ice cream I've ever had and it's completely paleo (depending on your chocolate.)
        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          Pizza. I surprisingly don't miss bread or grains as much as I thought I would, considering how much I previously ate (I'm guessing around 60+% of my diet before). But I love pizza, and we used to eat it at least once, if not twice weekly. I have had it twice in around four months, but it didn't "derail" me, mainly due to my mindset that I'm not on a diet, I just eat different than I used to (but with slightly reduced calories).

But you just HAD to remind me of garlic bread though didn't you? Oh... the fluffy garlicness... D'=
            +1 While I miss all those bread products from time to time, usually if I try them they do taste like cardboard. Occasionaly I will try some good crunchy bread at a restaurant but the part I enjoy most is the butter or olive oil I put on it. I also enjoy sopping up juices from my plate. I need a primal sponge substitute. When I try sweets that I used to like they usually taste way to sweet now. I do still like real black liquorice once in a while.

              I miss my sour stomach! Haven't felt that one in a very long time. Vile mood, also - that was great stuff.

              Seriously - deluxe steak nachos would be nice, as would peanut butter cookies. Peanut butter cookie / ice cream sandwiches. A great, meaty sandwich with real bread would be nice once in a while.

              Would I ever go back? nu-uh. Nope.
              If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                I miss ordering a Smothered beef burrito, but stuffing myself on the corn chips and salsa so that I can take the burrito for lunch the next day... just sayin'!

                  I had a Reese's Peanut Butter cup for an Easter treat. It tasted like skata and I did not enjoy it like I thought I would. I do miss Greek pastries with filo dough though.

                    French fries and fried chicken I love fried food... I guess I could primalize it at home with some tallow but that's more trouble than it's worth. On sunny days, my best friend and I used to meet up for beer and fries at a bar after work. She's moved away so it's not something we do any more anyway, but having a chicken salad in that setting is just not the same.

                    Other than that though, I don't miss much. Whenever the french fry craving strikes, which isn't more than once a week, I oven roast some sweet potatoes. Served with some mayo, that takes care of the craving. I thought I would crave sweet things but I really don't, because I still allow myself a piece of chocolate a day.

                      there are times I miss the old stuff...

                      Last night I kicked back and celebrated 99 pounds off with a couple of ounces of rum... Grok laughed at me from the corner of the room.

                      With the rum came some clouded judgement and some corn chips and potato chips...

                      well... back on the Primal Wagon today...

                        Convenience. I miss not having to think too much about food. Sometimes at the end of the day I just don't feel like cooking, but if I want to eat I have to. I was never all that bad about junk food, the occasional pig-out, but being able to open a can of soup and eat that with some bread or crackers. Yeah, I miss that.

                          Sushi. Sashimi is good, but every now and then you want one of those fun rolls with all the rice and stuff in them.

                          Every now and then I get a whiff of someone else's french fries and start drooling, but I remember how crappy they make me feel and don't indulge.

                              I find I don't "miss" much because if I have a really solid craving for something, I just set aside a time and eat it. I don't go nuts, but at easter I had some chocolate. A few months ago we went to a really nice Italian place out of town and I ate pasta. Not primal or paleo at all, but I did it because it was delicious. Bad food (grains, sugars, etc) should not be seen as nutritional items, but as indulgences, like alcohol. If you get drunk every night, no big surprise when that doesn't make you healthy. if you eat pasta 4 days a week, the diabetes shouldn't surprise you either.
