    Why would you think that?

      It's a nightshade, automatic no-no. Since giving up nightshades my rosacea is gone entirely. Why flirt with disaster?

            Try boiled / mashed potatoes slathered in full fat greek Yogurt and salt... a little taste of heaven!
            "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

            In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

              Hash browns make a great mattress for fried eggs. Baked potatoes, cut in half, mashed up with sour cream in the skin and eaten out of hand are my fave 'fast food'.

              It helps that we grow a few hundred pounds of different varieties and have a good storage protocol.

                The greek yogurt sounds good....No doubt more than just a sub but good in its own right.

                  Erm... Because it always has in the past? Might be different on primal, but I am concerned that if I add them in this early I'll want one every freaking day. I have no self control when it comes to these little tasty tubers. I'm doomed when I start digging my own up this year. They are so much better from my own garden. So creamy and delicious. Damn.

                      I like..... not that anyone cares .... but I like smashing my tator, putting 1/2 - 1 cup bone broth on it, (I mean bones & veggies all ground up too) and then I like to top it with my homemade kraut. I try to eat it once a day. I get lots of daily goodness all at one time.

                      Sometimes I add some kind of meat.

                        Yeah I'd be willing to bet a significant amount of money that it wasn't the potatoes but the processed food that was not helping with weight loss haha. Potatoes are one of the most satisfying foods known to man so unless you're sensitive it'd be silly not to include them in a weight loss plan! And I'm not talking about creamy buttery mashed potatoes which could clearly lead to over eating, but simple baked potatoes.

                          What frustrates me about the potato pushers is your arrogant assumption that other people's experience does not count.

                          After a lifetime of trying, I lost the weight I needed to lose in the only way that worked for me ...low carb. A potato would stop weight loss or even give me a gain. Now after over three years of maintening my low weight, my metabolism has healed enough that I've been able to increase carbs somewhat. Please stop assuming that everyone's body works as yours does.

                          Far healthier!

                            What frustrates me, is why someone can't just make a statement like... "I'd be willing to bet"... and then state their belief.... w/o someone else jumping all over them.

                              Argh, I can't stand this. Seems like every thread in the nutrition sections turns to fisticuffs. Primal is supposed to make us happy healthy beings, not forum monsters looking for a fight.

                                Sorry you're offended by my comment, Gopintos. It is just that I've grown weary of being told I should be able to eat foods that I and so many others find we can't.
