    RS and potato lovers: help!

    I have three young (6 and under) kids. The bulk of their carbs come from fruit, rice, and potatoes. I'd like to reduce the amount of rice I serve, but that means more potatoes. Is there anything...
  2. (Barefoot) Running Experts: New runner Q about treadmills and 5Ks

    I am totally new to running. Like... the "couch" in C25K new. I will be wearing minimalist shoes.

    Time & environmental considerations make the treadmill a necessity (no safe outdoor running spot...
  3. Eating freeze-dried fruits/veggies from survival stores?

    So many survival/prepper type stores sell freeze dried veggies and fruits. I was wondering if anyone had tried snacking on these straight (instead of reconstituting with water), and if they were...
  4. An easy, simple app to track macros?

    I've always wanted to use a food log app on my phone, but have avoided it because my meals tended to be VERY varied: lots of homemade soups or casseroles, sometimes food from a take-out place, random...

    Day 9.

    I have had a constant headache that hasn't gone away. I have had cravings for foods that I typically dislike (soda, donuts, cake). At the thought of ice cream I start salivating, and I...

    Day 5. I have been 100% compliant and I feel fatter. Like WAY fatter.

    This disturbs me.
  7. Day three and I still have the headache, although...

    Day three and I still have the headache, although now it's more of a minor annoyance than a true pain. So it seems to be receding. Which is nice.

    My energy levels are about the same. I am not...

    Expect to spend hundreds of dollars on holsters and try a variety of ways of carrying before you find the one that really works for you.

    At least, that's been my experience for sure.

    Day 2 and I'm right on track for a massive headache. Surprised, because I've been having a constant headache for weeks, and I attributed it to my regular wine habit. I kind of thought I wouldn't have...

    I'm still nursing my 11 month old. I have recently been getting dizzy spells, too. I, too, would look to hydration. Proper hydration is important when lactating. In fact, I've heard many lactation...

    I have just not been able to get on top of things, so I've decided to do a Whole30. Today marks Day 1. And although I feel strong and committed (It's not even lunch time yet, lol), my biggest concern...

    The best "holdover" breakfast for me:

    Bone broth (I like chicken or turkey), heated with some salt, stir in a scrambled egg or two (mock egg drop soup), toss in some sliced green onions, a little...

    Interesting. I already use a very similar flour blend. Was hoping for something more straight up paleo, but this might be worth looking at. At this point, my kids are way more accepting of, say,...

    Uh huh.

    Many of the popular paleo parent bloggers have recipes on their blogs for things like cookies, muffins, brownies, and such. Clearly what I am asking for is not something unusual or...

    Best "baked goods" cookbook?

    Despite my best efforts, my kids have not fully embraced primal foods. I'm looking for a cookbook that offers primal/paleo versions of things like blueberry muffins, cookies, etc. I'd prefer one that...

    I don't know what English Pudding is. A popover is kind of like a puffy roll. It's primarily eggs and flour. You bake it in a muffin tin (like the kind of tin you use to make cupcakes), and it puffs...

    King Arthur Flour has a GF blend that I think is okay, but they also tell you how to make your own (rice flour, potato flour, and tapioca flour). I've used the "make my own" blend to successfully do...

    I have thought of doing this, but I don't like to microwave my food, which is the easiest way to heat most leftovers. Also many things I like to eat--like avocados--do not store well in the fridge...

    I tried the immersion blender method (watched a bunch of youtube vids). Tried it in a regular blender. Tried it with an electric mixer. All fails. Very expensive fails. I'm not willing at this point...

    Good thoughts. Thanks for the insight. Running any more than 15 miles a week has always led to injury for me, but that was before I tried it barefoot. Maybe I'll just train for a 10k to start and see...
  22. Where is the line for "chronic cardio?"

    For most of my life I've had "Run a Marathon" on my bucket list. I'm willing to give that up, as I imagine training for it definitely constitutes chronic cardio. But what about a half? Or 10k? Or 5k?...

    It's actually Vegenaise. Weird, right? No eggs. Not sure how they make the stuff, which has me a little concerned. I'm guessing "pea protein" is the substitute for eggs.

    Thoughts on this commercial mayo?

    I've tried making mayo myself. It's always been a dismal fail. I don't use it a ton, but my kids do eat things like egg salad and tuna salad. I found this commercial mayo. What are your thoughts?...
  25. Thanks!

    Thanks!
