  • things nobody tells you

    like, for instance, coconut flour can NOT be substituted one for one with regular flour, and that you should expect to, oh, TRIPLE your liquid in your recipe! I made my standard cupcake recipe with coconut flour, and instead of being a smooth pour-able batter, it was as thick as gellato!

    any other tips and tricks people have learned over time with primal eating that no one told you?

    Before or after we started?

    Like... um... stop trying to fit your old lifestyle into your new one?

    LOL, yup, been there, done that. You figure it out. That's half the fun of baking!

      yeah, my cupcakes turned out pretty good, not sweet enough for my hubby, but as it's my birthday, I made them to my tastes.

      Also, people DO tell you that your tastebuds change, and you taste sweet way more, and they are NOT lying! WOW what a difference!

        Yeah, eventually fruit tastes like straight sugar, and right now I'm going through a "holy cow why is everything so salty?" phase

          Bacon is too salty now

            Seasoning cast iron is not as easy as everyone pretends it is.

              That your poop may go through a crazy transition phase :P

              Edit: But then again, based on where this post is placed, maybe you meant in relation to primal cooking

                  how annoying it can be to have to cook so often
                  just how gooooooood mashed cauliflower is
                  beautiful
                  yeah you are

                  Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                    That PB is the best way of eating... they (professionals) all want you to eat 50-60% carbs *facepalm*

                      That cooking with meat and veg is just embarrassingly easy?

                      I used to have a boatload of tricks in the kitchen to build up flavours in vegetarian food - brown the onions with marmite and curry spices before adding the tomatoes; dry-fry pumpkin seeds, grind them to flour and add at the end of cooking, etc, etc... No wonder I wound up eating out of packets instead.

                      Um. Something resembling a tip or trick - you mean, something more than 'put meat/ fish and veg in pan, cook, eat,' don't you?

                      Wild salmon is considerably firmer and more dense than farmed. It takes more added fat and a bit longer to cook.

                      Roast chicken is way better when you rub ghee into the skin at the start. (Yes, before you add the bacon slices.)

                      Thought of another one: marrow bones. If you want them to contain anything other than pure fat, ensure they're from a young animal.

                        you haven't REALLY enjoyed brussel sprouts until they're drenched with ghee!

                          Very true. Earlier today I baked about four pounds of butternut squash and sweet potatoes, combined them in a bowl (sans skins) with several tablespoons of butter, cinnamon, allspice, ginger and nutmeg. Basic sweet potato/b-nut squash mash, you get the idea.

                          That stuff's like a dessert food. Holy crap.
                          Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

                          For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

                              Yeah and if you have the same problems with grains that I do, next few days of bloating, stomach cramps etc. Gee and I thought only women suffered from this ;-) (Okay, PMS rim shot, sorry).
