    Oh my good goodness! I love latkes, but shy away from them due to blood sugar issues. Now this is something I can try with the frozen cauliflower! One question - I don't have any coconut flour, but...

    Thanks, all, for the responses. I will have to find something to do with the frozen veg as my son doesn't like it either, even in curries. Roasting sounds good, tho I will probably try it with...

    stupid cauliflower question

    A few months ago, I bought a bag of frozen cauliflower, thinking to use it as 'rice' in paleo recipes. It is still in the freezer, partly because I don't normally eat cauliflower and am not used to...
  4. Pro-primal change in advice to diabetics?

    I subscribe to an online service for diabetics. Today their website, which had 'tummy trimming' soups. OK. Well, I'm looking at the soups and there's a recipe for chili. I was shocked to read:

    Interesting. I am having a dry eye issue myself today, and have had them off and on for a few years - years that I have been vegan. Hmmm. Maybe this primal stuff will help reduce these occurrences.

    I was vegan for over 3 years. I did it because it was supposed to help my diabetes; then I started getting into animal protection causes (I still refuse to say 'animal rights'). I lost about 30 lbs,...

    I have a small Kitchen Aid food processor - simple, only 1 blade, but it does most of the processing you need and great for a small family (there's only 2 of us). It runs about $40, way cheaper than...

    I had an advisor who was nominally vegan, but had no problem chowing down all manner of baked goods at school functions. When we'd politely remind her that they probably had milk and butter and were...

    First, either you have a thyroid condition or not. I'm all for alternative medicines, ways of eating, etc., but I don't think you can just ween yourself off of thyroid meds. I see too many people who...

    I thought white rice was OK. We love curries. I tried having mine over a sweet potato, but that didn't quite do it. I've ditched the brown rice and have a few spoonfuls of white rice; my son has...

    How is that possible? Where can you not get a steak, chicken breast, some shrimp or fish and some green vegetables? From my understanding, even a potato on the side once in a while isn't a big deal...

    I remember being a little kid and loving the fat on a pork chop. I don't think I'd been around long enough to 'acquire' the taste, I just liked it. Too bad most of today's pork is so lean it is...

    As a recovering low fat vegan, seeing all this grease was getting me worried. I know you shouldn't pour it down the drain, but there was just so much of it, even after I threw a lot in the trash,...

    As the nuns used to say, 'Holy Mary!' That looks like a great meal, simple but tasty. I might have to make up a bunch of it and reheat it in the morning, but boy that looks good! It really helps to...

    soy vs almond flour

    I have some old low carb recipe books from before I went vegan. As I look through them again, I see that when recipes call for flour, they use soy flour. I have some soy flour, but have recently...

    I had an advisor who was 'vegan' but wouldn't shy away from a nice cake or pastry. When we'd suggest that the eggs and butter in the cake weren't vegan, she'd reply, "Well, it's not a religion." : )

    Both a gripe and an 'a ha' moment. I still have manufactured veggie foods in the freezer and thought I'd use up the 'ground beef' crumbles by making tacos (with a taco salad on lettuce for me). I've...
