    After several failed attempts at making kraut, I finally figured out that keeping the cabbage submerged under liquid is the key. Others have said this, but it is critical. Whatever method you try,...

    I eat them about five days a week, no issues. I also eat regular potatoes most days. I don't really care about or count carbs, but typically eat between 100-150g most days. Feel best in this range.

    Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil has no flavor as well, and is refined without chemicals. It's a little pricier than the Lou-Ann, but not enough to be prohibitive, IMO. It's available at the Wal-Marts...

    I have to keep my carbs around 150g to ward off leg cramps. I also eat white potatoes and bananas, which contain potassium. I thought it was magnesium when I started eating primal/paleo, but...

    Thanks for the advice all. My crock pot may be too hot. I was simmering on low, but it still lost a lot of moisture. I'll try it on the stove in a stock pot next time.

    Maybe someone can clear up some confusion for me. When making the bone broth, do you keep the water level above the bones through the whole cooking process? Or does it cook down, and if it cooks...

    Macadamias have gone to about $1 per ounce here, and that's a little tough for my food budget. I love them, though. Ate them frequently when I first started eating primal/paleo/ancestral, and they...

    I make my own yogurt on a weekly basis and eat it almost daily. I really don't strain for "Greek" yogurt anymore (too messy and time consuming for me), but pour off as much whey as possible so I'm...

    While I LOVE pizza (ate it at least twice per week pre-Ancestral), it destroys me the next day (it's the crust). Doesn't mean I won't have one every few months, but I know I'll pay for it. However,...

    I go with the skinless, boneless in olive oil, but drain the olive oil, basically because I doubt it's EVOO, and I don't want the extra O6. I generally eat three cans a week, along with a can or two...

    I do a banana, two eggs, 1T rice flour, and 1T fat (usually butter). They are great. And it's no addiction, it's about a once every two or three month treat. I don't see it much different than an...

    Good starches (varieties of potatoes, rice, etc.) I can't really overeat. Deep fried potatoes are an exception for some reason, though. Oven baked don't affect me the same way. Now, put any starch...
