  • What new foods have you discovered from being primal?

    Particularly ones that you like (or love) now and incorporate into your diet?

    For me, I discovered sweet potatoes, pomegranates, rabbit, beef jerky, and avocados. I'm trying parsnips right now. I have at least one sweet potato every week and try to have avocados every week when they're in season.

    What about you??

    Meat? I've never been a big meat water and becoming primal has helped me to rediscover the joys of animal protein. And butter. I actually slice off pieces of butter and eat it when I feel like I'm not getting enough calories in my day. Before, I would just have eaten cereal or something.

          Avocado, spaghetti squash, sweet potatoes, chia seeds, dark chocolate



          edit: meat isn't new to me, but, grass fed meat is, and I love it!

              Coconut oil. Great stuff!
              In the past year I have discovered that I am gluten, grain, dairy and legume intolerant.

              I am trying to make sense of it all through my blog: http://www.goingagainstthegrain.co.uk

                Plantains. The crazy things taste like candy.

                  Are they that much different from bananas?

                    I have discovered the joy of fermented foods.

                    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.
                    "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                        They're a lot starchier and almost inedible raw unless you fry them.

                          I have discovered the sublime joy of a perfectly done low and slow pork shoulder.

                          Also, I mix avocado with freakin' everything. Every. Thing.

                            Mmm...yes...love the taste of coconut and it adds so much to pork, eggs, sweet potatoes, cauliflower.

                            I have always liked avocado, but was very timid about it. Now I will add 1/2 a cut up avocado to garnish all kinds of soups and Asian or Mexican meat dishes.

                            I was never a fan of chicken thighs, but after having them from pasture raised chickens, I prefer them to breasts.

                              I should totally ferment mustard greens now. That would be amazing!
