  • What's the hardest food you gave up?

    When I switched to Primal, for me it was Skippy peanut butter. I loved that stuff and I used to make an awesome peanut butter omelet.

      I haven't given anything up, just massively cut down on a lot of less-than-optimum stuff.

      The hardest? My mother's home-made cakes especially fruit cake. But I have a couple of slices a year so i'm still happy.

          chocolate. my tummy doesn't get along with chocolate.
          1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
          2. Eat to heal
          3. Move to live
          4. Embrace today
          5. Live with intention
          6. Respect my body
          7. Cultivate joy
          8. Find my passion
          9. Meditate on peace in my soul

            I haven't given anything up. I eat certain things way less often than I used to, but if I really want pizza from that amazing wood fired place or some organic natural peanut butter, I eat it. unless you have a serious medical issue and absolutely must avoid a certain thing, it really isn't the end of the world to eat if every so often. hell, mark's actual primal blueprint diet calls for 80/20 adherence. so for every 20 meals you eat each week, 4 of them can be non-primal friendly and you can still consider yourself perfectly primal (by definition)

            that being said, I make a point of avoiding wheat, soy, and veggie/seed oils about 99.999% of the time

              Pie. Apple pie. Chocolate cream pie. French silk pie. Peach pie. Blackberry pie. You get the idea.

                The only thing I have truly given up is making sourdough: bread, pizza dough and focaccia. I will occasionally eat some if i'm somewhere that has exceptional quality but there's no where near me that meets that standard so it's pretty easy to avoid.

                    Pizza. Who doesn't love pizza? I'd still eat it if it weren't a nightmare for my gut.

                      Pies and pizzas can still be on the menu, why can't they ? Make them wheat free, use a benign sweetener, etc.

                        Because of my specific circumstances. Ever made a gluten-free pizza with goat cheese? It's... man, it fucking sucks.

                          No, I haven't but I regularly bake some "tarte normande" with a wheat free flour (I make the "pâte brisée" myself - I believe it's called shortbread crust or something like that).

                              Even before Primal I knew that stuff was crap and only went for the natural peanut butters with no hydrogenated oils and where the solids and oils separated. That's natural for peanut butter and the kinds that don't do that have a ton of chemicals addd to them to prevent it.
                              "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..."
