    Thanks for the suggestions! I'm all about the savory (not into sweets--even fruit--at all). I had forgotten about those little plastic "lunchkits" of tuna they sell. I could ditch the mayo pouch and...
  2. No refrigeration, portable snacks that taste good and aren't jerky?

    I have a (bad) habit of leaving the house thinking that I'll be back home by the time I get hungry again. But the best laid plans, yada yada, and I end up famished while out. It's not always easy or...

    Thanks, Hightower!

    I had my 5-year-old take a "before" picture of me yesterday. It wasn't pretty. I'm weighing in at 122 pounds, which is way more than makes me comfortable.

    My 40th birthday...
  4. Thank you. You're probably right about this.

    To address the original question:

    I set an app on my phone that dings every hour, on the hour, from 10am to 4pm. It notifies me what bodyweight exercise I am to do (push-ups, tricep dips, squats,...

    Thanks for the thoughts. I understand that, well, there's no SINGLE direct cause of cancer. If only it were that simple.

    I guess I've been wrestling with this a lot lately. Another friend of mine...
  7. Will a primal diet REALLY prevent cancer? How?

    I know a young woman who is dying of a brain tumor. She has three kids--the youngest isn't even two years old yet. Her life could be mine in so many ways, and every time I think of her I weep at the...

    Irony: I say I'm going to embrace "primal moderation," then I try to do 2 super-strict low-calorie days each week.

    Total fail.

    My hunger got the best of me and I went waaayyyyyy overboard last...
  9. I'm... Good Enough: A Primal Mom's Journey

    I'm a typical Type-A perfectionist. Nothing and no one ever meets my high standards, including myself. My past diets (and eating "lifestyles") have failed because I strive for perfection, fail to...

    I skimmed this thread so may have missed it, but has anyone discussed baking with potato starch, rice flour, and tapioca starch? Does baking with it totally lose the beneficial RS? I can make a...

    My third kid is now 9 months old and still pretty much nursing exclusively. I've had some experience with post-baby weight loss.

    For me, I can get close to my pre-preg weight by eating decent (or...

    Lovely u/s pics!

    I'm 27 weeks into my pregnancy. My first two (eating SAD) I failed the 1-hour glucose test. Passed it with flying colors this time, which I attribute to primal eating. My weight...
  13. Did Primal help me pass my Gestational Diabetes test? Maybe... just maybe!

    Short background: For my two previous pregnancies, I ate SAD and was almost completely sedentary. For both, I failed the 1-hour glucose test miserably. I barely passed the 3-hour in both pregnancies....

    Short answer to your question: No, she doesn't need milk.

    My younger daughter has always refused to drink milk of any kind. I weaned her around 16 months. She's two years old now, and has been...

    I am not my husband's dictator. I am his wife and partner. I wouldn't want him to dictate what/when/how I eat, and I respect him as a person and ADULT not to do the same to him.

    That said, he is...

    My kid loves rice krispies. She doesn't eat them often enough for me to sweat it, though. It's a mom's-too-busy-to-cook-and-we're-out-of-hard-boiled-eggs breakfast around here.

    My kids are still little, but I'd say this is exactly how I would have thought at your kids' ages.

    Actually, as a youth, I wanted to rebel against everything my parents did. My folks were die-hard...

    I agree with the "your house, your rules" philosophy.

    Although I am also big on the "A guest is a jewel resting on the cushion of hospitality" train of thought.

    Are they guests in your home?...

    Another vote for leftovers. There are a ton of cool thermos/insulated containers that can keep leftovers warm for a while.

    Or do a leftover "remake." Turn your leftover roast beef or chicken into...

    We have backyard chickens so we always have eggs on hand! My family probably eats about 2 dozen a week. The kids like them, but they won't eat them for too many days in a row. I usually eat a few...

    I've been "off" bacon this pregnancy, which is odd for me, and a little bit off eggs, too. But now I'm able to eat meat more now than I did during the first tri, thank goodness.

    For me, when I had...

    I can't offer you any advice from a medical perspective.

    For me, now that I'm preggers, I eat more starchy carbs in the form of rice and potatoes. Cutting carbs worked for me to drop those last 10...

    Ayla: Have you considered packing warm lunches instead of cold? That way you could add butter and such to them. I know Japanese bento boxes are usually warm/room temp. The woman who wrote the Vegan...

    I don't use mayo often, but I do use it every once in a while. Whenever I use it in something I try to make it half/half (half mayo, half olive oil). Works fine in things like deviled eggs.
