    Yesterday's farmers market haul: beets with the most beautiful greens, carrots, early tomatoes, zucchini, pickling cukes and potatoes. I've been leaning on potatoes lately as my starch. Previous...

    Now you *know* it's summer when the Russian recipes start rolling out. The latest thing I've made is vinegret, which is a salad consisting of beets, potatoes, sauerkraut and pickles. Tossed a...

    Lost a pound. Ate a little too much during family dinner last night, but went home, stopped eating for the night and immediately started cooking for this upcoming week. I hit two farmers markets late...

    Alright, two days' worth of commentary here:

    Ice cream social turned into a little bit of a free-for-all and ended in late night Mexican food. Then, the following morning, I had breakfast at a...

    Urja, I wanted to drop in just to voice some solidarity with what you said above about rigid order or chaos. I struggle with this too, and am caught up in a cycle where I make progress and then...

    Thank you so much for the bolstering message, Jen! I think letting go of the past needs to be something I do generally in my life... I have had the same goals for who knows how long. It's almost as...

    Mom to the rescue! She's bringing some of the grassfed beef I slow-cooked for them and a salad for my lunch. Ah, the perks of being in one's home city.

    Forgot to mention the pea tendrils. Been eating a lot of this at work, since it's portable. The sautéed kale will probably carry over into breakfast/lunch tomorrow. Full.

    Working dinner out was probably not completely Primal, as the orange chipotle glaze on my meat was pretty sweet. I ended up ordering Berkshire pork, which got me excited - then sad when I saw that...

    Jenry, so fun seeing this thread! I'm dating an Iranian and I love when he cooks. Persian food is so tasty, and much of it is Primal and/or can be Primalized easily.

    Dinner with friends was nice. I'm always struck by how little people actually care about the dietary choices you make (unless they're jerks, and my friends aren't jerks). Most times, if you don't...
