    Well, quantity matters. I lived in Japan for a year and a typical rice bowl served with a meal is maybe 1/4 cup dry. A burrito in the US will contain more than that. My hosts served lots of soup,...

    Sounds like an immune response. A swell in gut bacteria is normal during digestion but a concentrated dose like that might cause them to flourish beyond reason and provoke the "riot police" to put...

    No, I would avoid all colored fish. The color agent itself may not be harmful but it signals poor nutrition.

    Bad words: Atlantic, farm-raised
    Good words: Pacific, Alaskan, sockeye, keta, etc.

    You're not alone. Planking helps a little bit--every food solution I've tried just makes my head and limbs look skeletal, so I recommend a serenity mantra.

    Sunny side up = no flip
    Over easy = flip once, serve before yolk is solid

    OP: any method that avoids char or smoke should be okay. Rotating different foods is good too.

    If you choose to track weekly is more illuminating than daily--especially if it corresponds to your shopping, i.e. a week's groceries will have more or less the same impact regardless of how you...

    How much? 1/8~1/4 tsp of any substance will not spike glucose. IIRC it's digested like fiber.

    I like this point. Major meal prep immediately after work is stressful but it can be a zen activity on weekends or late evenings. Commercial foods are adept at offering an after-work soothing...

    Ya, tax and tip alone are dealbreakers. In my area the takeout delivery services are exploding in popularity (fee is about $10)--my friends who use them don't even seem excited about the cuisine,...

    Definitely a great topic.

    Anecdotally most of the "can't afford to cook" folks I know fall for convenience ripoffs every single day. They're buying cold cuts, pseudocheese, and iceberg lettuce at...

    True, though every culture seems to crave small amounts of raw protein--kibbeh, ceviche, etc.

    OP: I've been sickened by chain meals even after vetting all of the listed ingredients. I wouldn't...

    Any sudden nutrition change might cause a mismatch with the previous gut microbes, but it should stabilize soon enough as long as you're getting a diverse balance.

    That's rough--I sympathize.

    My parents actually value my (alleged) knowledge enough to ask questions but in practice they'll only add things like butter and never subtract anything. Putting...

    The weak point is the egg yolk so check for rotten odor first.

    Mine lasts longer than most recipes indicate, especially if I use hi-oleic sunflower oil. There's also a trick to culturing it with...

    I use Nourishing Traditions and Ancestral Table most frequently. Alice Waters "Art of Simple Food" is solid too, just skip the bready chapters.

    Ya I love dishes from all 3 "meals" but I just save them for later if I'm not hungry, e.g. no law against omelet for dinner.

    Welcome!

    Yes roots and fruits are primal. Just try to have carbohydrates with a meal and not snack on them all day. Cassava flour is handy for baking but too low in nutrients for everyday food.

    Indeed commercial potatoes are cooked in stale refined oil and worth avoiding but these all look good.

    Me? 175-185# depending on season (6'3") though I think a dinner-only plan could be scaled up or down as needed. I could probably double-size everything on a dare if I took my time chewing. :p
