    okay found a photo of my naughty little red car. This was on the way to DDs wedding. She found out that she was pregnant so we had to do the shotgun thing. When we stopped to check on the girls we noticed that Barbie with the boobies had slipped into the horizontal position on the grill.....quite appropriate !!!! LOL

      Thanks Gwamma. Just a shame our gp vet didn't realise what it was on Saturday. That would've saved him a lot of pain.

        • Wow Misabi. Poor wee fella! The mind boggles about how these things happen, I'm picturing a spleen doing sommersaults......weird. Glad he's getting better now though. So what are the long term issues with having a spleen removed?

            Apparently very little impact long term in an healthy animal. The liver and kidneys are capable of taking up the slack from a blood filtering perspective. If they have a compromised immune system it can be an issue because the spleen plays a part in the immune system.

            The stomach gets part of its blood supply from the spleen but apparently that sorts itself out in a week or two.

            • aww misabi, i feel so much better now. i was dreading you appearing and saying it was all over as i know how much animals mean to us all. if there is a chance of cancer, it is supposed to be a fungus. i do not know if this really is true but give your boy lots of green tripe for the probiotics, totally absolutely avoid any treats with grains in and i am sure you will be giving him lots of pack time so as he feels secure and happy! and i am not really telling you what to do lol just yay! you have your dog back and he will be fine. in your position, i wouldnt be letting the vet vaccinate him for anything either while he is there. and i do realise that statement in itself is controversial so that one is your choice too.

              crack up on the car gwamma! a friend of mine has a barbie that gets into all sorts of strange places. and a matching ken who is often seen in the gun cupboard wearing a dress!!

              gym went well today btw. am up to lunging with 21kg weights in either hand. funny how the hard bit is moving them around to get to carry them and put them away. i did 30kg on the bench press. just 10 reps with the last one sorta assisted. so big jumps on all my weights. i have worked out too where post workout brain fade comes from. i often miss the door to the car park on the way down the stairs from the gym if i am trying to txt at the same time lol they do all look the same but there is a sign. it is coz i low carb usually. my muscles obviously need glycogen so they grab it and my brain slows down for a while. or that is my excuse and i am sticking to it!

              • Mung Bean Noodles? Anyone know anything about them?

                I had no idea they existed, but I had previously been eating them (pre-primal) thinking they were rice noodles. At last weeks cooking class our tutor made some delicious fried noodles with mince and she pointed out that the noodles were actually made from mung beans not rice - which is why they sell them in the vege section at the supermarket. Suddenly it all makes sense!

                I've searched MDA about them to see if they are Primal but failed to come up with a definitive answer. Google tells me that they are very high in carbs though. I'm thinking they would be OK as a sometimes meal?

                • mung beans are a legume so they wouldnt be primal. i would even hazard a guess rice noodles are better for you are they are just starch whereas legumes have antinutrients in them. i dislike legumes with a vengeance so i am very biased against eating them lol i have no idea why i dont like them as they dont appear to have any negative effects on me but just the thought makes my stomach shudder. kinda like the thought of drinking meths does.

                  i make noodles with julienned zucchini. not very crispy tho.

                  • Are they made from the sprout or the legume?

                    I'm thinking that deep frying zucchini in coconut oil will only lead to soggy, oily zucchini!

                    • Oh its OK I just Wiki'd the answer: Mung bean starch, which is extracted from ground mung beans, is used to make transparent cellophane noodles
                      Bugger, they were damn fine too.

                      • yes no way will you get actual noodley noodles from zucchini. you can make them less soggy by sweating them in a colander for 30 mins or so with some salt but they are still strips of zucchini however you package it. since i have always liked zucchini more than pasta, i dont mind. mung bean starch is poss still better in moderation than all that faleo baking with almond butter and chocolate so moderation. you got 20% to play with if you really feel that way inclined. pity we cant get those kelp noodles here. i have thought of attacking a bull kelp stem with my julienne peeler to see what i can do. i have pickled bull kelp stems before and they were yummy but i still reckon you would get rubbery noodles.

                        • Oh yeah some of those noodle subs sound pretty horrific. I don't usually bother to sub, I just add a stinking load of extra vege to bulk out my portion of the meal.

                          My cooking class has finished for the year so I have a lot more of my 20% to play with now that I don't totally go off the rails every thursday night. I tried some pretty fantastic food over the last two terms though so it was nice to just go with the flow and try whatever we made without making noises about not eating certain things. When I get home I take the recipes and just recreate them primal style. Havn't found a way to primalise roti's yet though LOL!

                          • zucchini noodles are really just part of the stinking load of extra vege to bulk. i usually just put them in one of those protein garbage stir fries. which is some form of meat from mince thru to chopped up pieces of chicken breast. pan fried with onions and maybe a bit of garlic and whatever sliced up, chopped or diced veges i have in the house. plus some strips of omlette.

                            roti are those potato filled chupati or naan breads? i did used to love samosas. potato and pea curry, curried potato and cauliflower. yumm!! there are recipes around here for naan breads with tapioca starch and other things. but we are back into faleo territory or sex with your pants on as the whole 30 peeps call it. pass me the cigarette as i need to go outside lol

                            • Yeah roti are pan fried flat breads, you can roll up the uncooked dough with some potato curry then fry the little bundle or even with a mince curry inside. Yum. But as with most things, its pointless trying to faleo this stuff. I'd rather just have a little blow out on the real thing from time to time. As I've prooved over the last 7months, I can get away with that way of eating (so long as I keep it to a minimum) without starting the dreaded weight gain.

                              Mmmmm naan bread........with garlic ghee.......I'll need a cigarette next!

                              • lmao i used to love naan breads. and croissants. that is another thing i miss. not the nasty chocolate or almond ones dusted in icing sugar but the real proper european ones. portuguese ones are to die for. i think i would come back looking like jubbu the hut if i ever made it to europe again. not only that i would be so ill and so totally crazed and wired, i'd prob have a punch up with the first person who looked at me funny or made a sheep joke. so yeah, i would be focussing on the duty free european cigarettes big time. gitanes, gauloise, filterless camels oh my. do not croissants sound a whole heap more appetising lol zucchini noodles are nice btw with kina. my fave way to eat kina in fact other than straight out of the shell on the beach. stir fry a finely chopped onion and some garlic. add the sweated zucchini noodles. when they are all cooked. move them to one side of the pan. add in a bit more butter. put in a couple of beaten eggs and the kina and scramble them together. then serve everything with some salt and pepper. you'd need to make more for more than one person. i make them with the scrambled egg mixture and without the kina as well. they are nice with scallops or prawns like that too.
