  • Cream Cheese

    I'm new to primal so excuse me if this is a silly question. I get the thing with the fats being good energy for us. But I've seen lots of people talking about cream cheese. So, cream cheese is not on the bad list?

    Yay!!! I love cream cheese! But what do you eat it with on a primal diet?

    I'm use to piling it high on bagels lol.

    some can be pretty processed and junky -- not far off from american cheese. if you buy the good stuff, you can melt it on veggies, over eggs, or stir into soups. stuff it into celery too.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

      Ok, so we're not talking about the Philadelphia brand cream cheese? It would have to be like a natural cream cheese thing?

        I take a container of high quality cream cheese and put it in the blender with a jar of drained roasted red peppers. Blend and it is heavenly. It can be eaten like a veggie dip or even like a roasted red pepper soup or gazpacho. Mmmmmmmmm............love it.

            why would you compare regular cream cheese to light cream cheese?

            regular kraft cream cheese is no different than the organic horizon brand aside from the questionable xantham or guar bean gums.

                I'm doing no dairy for a month, but I used to use it like a filling or spread. Slices of cooked meat (chicken, turkey, ham, beef) with a chunk of cheese at one end and then roll it up.

                  I like it just straight up, but maybe try it with an avocado or something? I've also stuffed chicken breast and chops with cream cheese before. try making some of your own with raw milk, its quite easy and highly nutritious

                          I dilute it with cream or sour cream and make veggie dips. Sometimes garlic and herbs. Sometimes dried onions and seasonings, or I add a spicy mustard like Grey Poupon or another French mustard that's more horseradishy. Thin it a bit more and you can use any of these as a salad dressing.

                              Make pesto: YUM!

                              Throw 3 cups of fresh basil leaves in a blender
                              4 ounces of cream cheese
                              4 ounces of Olive oil
                              1 cup of walnuts
                              3 tb. of garlic...

                              blend, blend, blend..add more olive oil if it needs to blend more so that it's smoothy..Pour over cooked fried zucchini in CO and it will fill you up good big time. Save the rest in ice cubes dishes and freeze. Pop them out, thaw and put on the table and eat with celery sticks if you like or other veggies. Pour over eggs or use as sauce for cauliflower pizza dough instead of red....Lotta options here if you can save it that long...My family loves it!
