  • Anyone have some good soothie ideas?

    Hi guys, been eating Primal for one week now, and although I really do like my (whole!) eggs in the morning, I need some variety. I ordered the cookbook, but it's not here yet.

    I'm a big fan of smoothies in the morning, but I used to make them with whey powder, OJ and blueberries, which would be far too many carbs. Does anyone have any ideas I could use? I know yogurt helps some. Thanks!

        i alternate these during the work week because i'm usually rushed:

        1 tbsp chia seeds soaked overnight in 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
        -optional flavors (add vanilla extract, cinnamon or cocoa powder)
        throw in some fruit if you want


        1 scoop unflavored jarrow hemp protein + 1 c unsweetened almond milk
        (my fave is vanilla extract, 1/2tsp maca powder & loads of cinnamon)
        -i add a couple spoons of canned pumpkin for a "fall flavor"


        1/2 avocado + fresh mint leaves + 1c unsweetened almond milk=SHAMROCK SHAKE!! i add a little stevia to sweeten the deal, this is prob my fave shake

          1 cup coconut milk, 1 T nut butter, 1 frozen banana. If you're feeling feisty, a bit of dark chocolate or a scoop of cocoa powder. Take you right through lunchtime.

            Here's my smoothie:

            Coconut milk
            Plain full fat greek yogurt
            A handful of whatever leafy green stuff I have around
            A couple chunks of frozen pineapple
            About 1/4 of an avocado

            1/2 banana
            1 tbsp. raw honey (not exactly primal, but it helps my allergies so I still eat it
