  • Dairy cravings anyone?

    Recently developed a taste for full fat dairy, would like to restrict it as I don't think it's ideal for me to consume, was wondering whether anyone else has had this on a PB diet - ie getting cravings for cream /yoghurt etc, and did you find a good alternative? I've upped my starches for a while which seems to help, but the whole luxury of double cream over some bananas is something I'm struggling to give up.

    Love dairy, too. I eat low fat quark (has a good amount of protein:12g/100g) and pour in some sparkling water or pure whey drink, that makes it smooth and creamy but doesn't contain so much (not really healthy) fat - which I add with chia seeds, nuts or creamy almond butter or honey & cinamon. Here you can also add your banana to make it a good post workout snack.

      Not ideal in what way? It sounds like the high calorie aspect of it concerns you?

      For at least a year I enjoyed the heck out of berries and yogurt for breakfast every morning. It was a lot of berries and only 1/2C yogurt. I hadn't really thought about it until I read your post, but about the time I switched from 1/2C 2% milk to 2T heavy cream in my morning coffee, I started to prefer dinner leftovers for breakfast to the yogurt and berries. Hmm...

      I also use the heavy cream in dinner cooking once a week or so (same for cheese) and for primalish desserts about as often. Over bananas sounds delish! But I have a beer habit I haven't given up, so I restrict desserts to just a bit of something rich and sweet. I will say that so long as I maintain a weight I'm happy with, I am pretty relaxed about treating myself to things I enjoy, primal or not. I have noticed that as months pass by, I care less and less about those "dangerous" foods I used to crave. I tell myself I'm on a 10 year plan to the primal pinnacle, lol.

        Why eat starches over double cream on banana, the later sounds both more delicious and more nutritious?

        I use full fat milk in my tea multiple times a day and snack on cheese regularly. I also use both in my breakfast omelettes, cooked in butter. I would rather have cream than yoghurt personally, but I don't crave it as long as there is cheese in the fridge

        I am maintaining a healthy but not skinny weight, I would have to cut these items back drastically if I were aiming for skinny but it's not worth it to me.

        So, basically I am a dairy lover, alternatives like coconut oil just do NOT do it for me. Sorry.

          Dairy is my caloric splurge mostly. A trip to a foo foo cheese purveyor, and I'm in heaven. Other than that, butter, grated parmesan, and 2% cottage cheese are the dairy products I eat on a regular basis.

              I find I crave cream or even butter when I'm not eating enough fat.

                    What kind of carbs are you eating that could replace tasty cream?
                    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                      Thanks for replies - basically I love dairy esp heavy cream, I pour it over fruit, make fresh butter with it or whip some melted 85% chocolate into it for an especially rich chocolate mousse, but like kiwigal I just seem to feel generally better when I'm not eating it, its become the only dietary challenge / food-without-brakes for me since I went primal.

                      I don't think I'll cut it out completely - fine as a treat IMO, but just thought I'd ask for views.

                      I dare you to try heavy cream over ripe banana and not become addicted :-)

                        I just spent three weeks eating a half-gallon of full-fat greek yogurt every day. I went one day without it and am already over the cravings. But, yes, that one day was a day I REALLY wanted my yogurt! Now I'm fine, woke up, ate eight eggs and had my coffee, doing things around the house and not craving the gurty gurt. So IME if you can make it past the initial "want it" phase, you'll easily hit the "don't need it" phase.

                          I love fermented dairy. When I did the no dairy stints, for texture/little bowl food substitutes I used nuts or nut butters with salt and cocoa nibs, or berries 'smoothied' with egg whites or mug cakes from egg whites and bananas. Home-made jellos (lime and stevia or fruit juices) are also a good sub for me. Finally, I love kisel' - hot fruit juice (cranberry, blackberry or blueberry) heated up with tapioca starch to thicken it. You can let it cool (I like it hot in the winter) and if there is enough starch (~ 1 tbsp per cup of drink) it makes for a pleasant, dairy-like texture. Well, for *me*. I have Eastern European taste-buds.

                          But I found that it was eggs, not dairy that impact me badly (joint pain), so now I eat dairy to my heart's content and no eggs.

                          LOL.

                            That's a pretty good trade!

                              Ever since I started buying grass-fed milk I've been hooked. I can give up all dairy and keep that and I'd be happy.
