      Oh, and fresh mustard greens! Fry those things up with your ground meat and BAM, you're added a delicious spicy zing to your meat. Or add them to salads to add that kick. Those things are awesome.
      Mustard and raddish leaves are AWESOME. I get them at the local Asian stores. Can't find them anywhere else. Now, I look at solitary raddishes and think "what a waste of raddish leaf!"

        Grass fed ground beef and ground bison. So much more velvety than regular. I don't notice it as much with cuts of beef, but the ground is amazingly different. Also organic chicken livers taste very different/better than conventional ones.

        Spaghetti squash. Just tried it a couple of days ago. I'm hooked. What a great food.

        Rediscovered: butter. Honestly hadn't used butter in way too many years. And this led to...

        Putting butter in coffee. This is so good that if I drank as much as I wanted, I'd be in permanent fat-ass mode. But it's such an amazing treat.

        How could I almost forget grass fed beef shank? This is so good that it's almost sinful. A nice byproduct is that since it's cooked low and slow, the resulting broth, while not technically a bone broth, gelatinizes (is that a word?) nicely in the fridge and can be used to beef up veggies and other dishes.

        Avocado oil. Again, it had been years since I had bottled oils in my home. When I learned how much bs olive oil there was, I decided to go with something less mainstream. I use it sparingly, but its uses are many and the flavor is gentle enough not to be intrusive.

        Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

                Honestly, I've basically tried everything I currently now eat. The difference is that the amount is significantly higher. I've always been really creative in the kitchen and happy to try new things.

                The only thing I found to be "new" is coconut flour because I never considered using it to bake before, so I never bought it.

                  Oh yes, I forgot about almond and coconut flour. Not that I use them much.....

                  And ditto on using some obscure ingredients more often. I haven't "discovered" rabbit or beef liver per se, but I'm definitely eating them much more often.

                      I found a chayote squash in the grocery store tonight. I've never seen them before. I bought one. Now I just need to learn how to cook it! (Or not... I wonder how it tastes raw?)

                        Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
                        Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
                        Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

                            The first thing I found that I really enjoy now is yogurt..... particularly greek yogurt. I have never been a "rotten milk product" fan, but I really like greek yougurt! Whodathunkit.
                            Next on the list have been a variety of squashes. Acorn, pumpkin (other than pie),patty pan, delicata. Roast them in a little olive oil with a touch of salt and pepper.... ohhh yum

                            And stirfry... with bok choy

                              I think they are really similar to yellow summer squash. They seem to go by many names. Wikipedia gives a list including:
                              Christophene, cho-cho, mirliton, pear squash, choko, pipinola, and güisquil.
                              Chayote - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

                              My stepmom called them mirlitons and stuffed them with shrimp and breadcrumbs and stuff. They were awesome.

                                Vegetables. I despised everything except onions, garlic, and mushrooms before I started Primal. I have been reborn as a vegetable lover...
