  • Top 5 "can't do without" Primal staples?

    Hey everybody, I'm fairly new to this lifestyle and am interested in hearing what your main staples are in your kitchen.

    So far I've got the coconut milk, coconut oil, eggs, bacon, meats & veggies but are there other really great items out there that you love???

    Sorry if this has been asked before, couldn't find it on the forum.
    Went Primal: 3/28/2010 - 43 lbs lost!
    Over 15 inches gone!

        Really that's all I need. Veggies, fruits, etc are optional.

              in fact I wonder if I can make it for any length of time eating just these things above...

              no... I'd need Grass Fed Beef every so often...

                Top 5......

                Butter
                Fish oil supplement (omega 3)
                duck/goose fat
                beef
                lamb

                (I could generalise to "meat" but bacon is a treat and I go through phases of not liking pork, or not fancying any more chicken...)

                  So, Pavel Tsouline said something really funny once... He said that Eggs are good because they keep baby chickens from being born. ;D

                    *bewildered blinking*
                    I remember talking to a former boss about her veganism, trying to work out if it was a political, ethical, welfare-related, or random choice. So I asked if she would eat eggs if she kept the chickens herself so could guarantee good treatment. She said no, "cos it's a chicken period, ewww".

                    Some people are just too squeamish!

                    I didn't say she could get a rooster and eat embryos instead of periods....

                      Hahaha.

                      Pavel was coming from the point of view that eating chickens wasn't a really great way to build muscle, and he felt that it actually decreses testosterone production in men. *shrugs* I just think it's a funny quote.

                      Alot of vegans I knew did it because of the "ick factor" when it came to meat.
