How Bad is Sour Cream?
Ok, So I know this was probably far from primal but I was stuck in a position where I ate at Chipotle with some friends.
I had a fajita bowl with pulled beef, tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, and sour cream. I know that some of this stuff is kinda of primal but how bad is the sour cream?
I have lost 10lbs in two weeks (which is a lot for me as I only have about 30 to lose) so I know this is working but it's situations like these where I have trouble.
I like sour cream, especially on my fajita bowls from Chipotle.
From Chipotle's [URL="http://www.chipotle.com/en-us/menu/nutritional_information/nutritional_information.aspx"]site[/URL] 2 oz. sour cream is 10g of fat (7 from saturated) and 2g of carbs. I wouldn't sweat the SC.
I eat and use SC a lot in my cooking. I wouldn't sweat it. Fermented dairy is better than the regular stuff.
IF you can tolerate dairy, sour cream should be fine in small amounts. The non-dairy crowd may say that's part of the 20%, but there are far worse things you could eat at Chipotle, such as the flour tortillas.
(note: I personally don't count fermented dairy in the 20% category, but that's just me.)
Thanks everyone. I like SC so it's good to know I can have it occasionally - I've pretty much cut dairy out of my diet.

Oh man, it's terrible... especially for me, I can't just open a container and use it... I have to finish it.

How long has it been sitting out?
Sorry. Sometimes I have absolutely no self control . . .
For my money dairy is one of those borderline things that [I]maybe[/I] should be avoided (by those who have a lot of weight to lose or who are dairy intolerant in some fashion or who really want to live like grok and camp in a cave and not pull on the teats of domesticated cows, goats, or sheep).
Maybe I could lose weight faster if I cut it out. But small amounts of aged cheese and butter are two things that I enjoy in my diet and I don't think they're holding me back enough to dx them.
Not an option in restaurants, but I've been using full fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It has a nice tang to it.
MMmmm, I love sour cream. Not that icky low fat stuff either, the dig in, stand a spoon up in it kind. Smothered on steak, delicious!
Proper, thick sour cream is a staple in my cooking. It's pretty much the "most primal" of the milks along with greek yogurt and kefir.
