  • Are you eating things that you didn't eat before you went Primal?

    I definitely am. I never ever ate strawberries or apples before starting my Primal journey. Oh! Or dark chocolate. Love all three now.

    In fact, I just bit into a gigantic strawberry and it reminded me of the plant from Little Shop of Horrors. "Feed me Seymour!!"

    I wasn't fond of seeds before but I now feel a salad is not quite right without a sprinkle of my fave seed mix.

    I didn't like avocados much before and started out having them mixed in with other stuff, but now I just slice them open and eat them with a spoon.

    I used to be slightly squeamish about the skin/fatty/gristly bits of a chicken but now when I cook chicken I eat the skin, have a good dig around for every last scrap of meat and any wobbly bits that are chewable, and finally make a broth with the bones and gristly bits.

    I also buy fatty cuts of meat and enjoy it when loved ones cut the fat off theirs and look a little horrified to see me eating mine and going MMMM.

      Ooh I love Little Shop of Horrors.

      I can't think of anything I hadn't eaten before apart from coconut oil. I'm glad I found that.

        Absolutely! A whole bunch of stuff: Duck eggs, goose eggs, venison, goat, sardines, canned salmon, canned oysters, canned clams, kippers, coconut oil, coconut milk, heavy cream, ghee, heart, liver, other organ meats, kale, brussells sprouts, dark chocolate (70% to 100%), Cacao nibs, goat cheese, lard, herbal tea, home made bone stock...I'm sure I missed some stuff.

        Then there are so many other things out there to try. I am soooo open to trying new stuff since going primal.

          Liver, bone broth, coconut milk, beef shanks, duck egg (just 1).

          That strawberry DOES look like Audrey II!

            Definitely! Bacon, chicken skin, whole avocados, full-fat dairy -- all things I previously thought of as "too fatty", and would eat maybe once a year.

              Coconut oil, beef marrow, vitamin D. Eating in much greater frequency since primal: liver, sweet potatoes, seaweed.

                Primal has gotten me over my squeamishness about eating offal. Oh, and marrow bones no longer get tossed to the dog. He has to wait until I'm done with them.

                  Kale
                  Spinach
                  raw green beans
                  meat fat
                  squash
                  coconut flour
                  pecan meal
                  cauliflower
                  offal (still not keen on kidney)
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                    Seaweed. Sweet potato. Japanese sweet potato. Spaghetti squash. Grass-fed and organic meats. Omega 3 eggs. Organic dairy. Raw meat (just a few bites)... all things coconut (don't like it that much though)

                    The biggest change for me was how I acquire the groceries. We now shop in bulk from local farmers, and I buy everything i can afford in organic version. I really like buying from the local farmers, and we get the cuts we would have never tried before.

                      Lamb's heart and a lot of strangely shaped bony bits from various animals.
                      Delicious grassfed whole cream - not a first, but I didn't down a quart a week like I do now.
                      If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                        Beets. The only beets I've had before were pickled and I hated them. Now that I know of other ways of eating them, I can't get enough. On a side note, you can imagine my horror after eating a particularly large quantity of beets for the first time, and the subsequent "pink pee".

                          Liver. My mom used to prepare it when we were growing up. Prior to going primal, I hadn't eat it in probably 20 years.

                            I love beets too! They go well with mustard.

                            I was low fat vegan so now I am so happy I can now eat, guilt-free:

                            Meat!!
                            Sardines
                            Eggs
                            Full-cream organic cows milk in coffee over super-processed fat-free soy milk
                            Anything fatty, like coconut, coconut oil, olives and avocados
                            I also just rediscovered Brussels sprouts for the first time in years

                            And I don't miss anything I cut out!
