    courgette or 'zucchini' soup:
    - Hack 2 courgettes into small pieces
    - Fill a pan with sprinkle of olive oil and ghee or butter (approx 20 grams), add 2 cups of boiled or hot water
    - Add some bone broth if you are non-vegetarian. if not: dried herbs and leafs, you may want to add more butter
    - Add the courgettes, boil for 10 minutes.
    - Use the blender to make a smooth soup, or just stir firmly.
    - The amount is good for 3 servings, or 2 big servings when not accompanied by a big meal or big salad.

      Lol. Even though I made the depressing suggestions - I agree with you

      And YUM re. the cauliflower pizza.
      "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

      In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

        For lunch we had chips (cut up pre-boiled potatoes cooked in a generous amount of ghee, sprinkled with rock salt).

        We havn't found a good pizza alternative (our one big fault with primal). So we've decided to stir fry up pizza toppings instead and just eat that.
        Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

          Homemade tomato soup. Tomato puree, salt, garlic, onion, and EVOO. Hot sauce in it for me. Delicious, easy and works for primal or vegan.

            I had a great primal and vegetarian serving at a restaurant in Lyon last week: a variant on Salad lyonnaise. Remade it at home:

            - Prepare a simple but big salad with two or three basic green leafy ingredients (+ onion or bacon if non-vegetarian), cut well
            - Mix or grate young goat cheese with egg. Use the proportion 75 grams of cheese: 1 egg, but that is just my preference! You can for sure use 2 eggs on 75 grams, or even 3 eggs if you use old goat cheese (the taste of older goat cheese is more prominent)
            - Put the mixed cheese/egg in several small ovencups or one bowl.
            - Oven on 140-160 celsius for 20 minutes, or 180 if you prefer a crispy outside/ soft inside, like me.
            - Put the hot boll of poached cheese/egg on the salad, which you have sprinkled beforehand with a mix of warm (!) fruit vinegar/ olive oil/ pepper (fresh preferable).

            Its GOOOD!

            Disclaimer: i am not a vegetarian, but prefer not to overindulge on meat for personal reasons. Yet, i don't judge you if you incorporate delicious bacon in this recipe.

              ^ Sounds yummy. I'm thinking apple cider vinegar in the salad dressing would work well, plus some smoked salmon instead of bacon.
