    I got some very wise advice from here a while back when I was complaining about not liking veggies. I took it to heart and started getting over my own veggie issues: "Suck it up. Not everything is...

    Too funny, Sabine! I love telling people that I bought some pig fat to make lard out of. They are usually a bit horrified!

    Cooking bacon fat with brussels sprouts sounds amazing! I will try that!
  3. If you eat too much of something (fat, carb,...

    If you eat too much of something (fat, carb, protein) your body will store it as fat. And by "too much" I mean more than what your body needs. So in a way, it's not a free-for-all lifestyle/diet...

    Thanks! Do you guys pour it all in one jar/bowl or strain it first? (My bacon grease ends up with tiny flecks of bacon in it-- not that that's a bad thing!) Do you use it to sautee up veggies or...

    Saving & reusing leftover bacon fat

    Growing up, my mom always said not to pour hot bacon grease down the drain so we always poured it into a jar and threw it away when full. I never really thought about it until recently that I could...

    It's fine if it smells/tastes fine. Coconut oil liquifies at 76 degrees. When I lived in Florida, my CO was always liquid. (AC was only set to MAYBE 80 on hot nights) But now back in the rainy state,...

    haha, aw not much sympathy going on here! I know what it's like to have all-consumming cravings that are hard to kick. It will get better after it gets worse-- but you know that. ;) Avoid the sweets....

    White people make up 75% of America, OF COURSE we are also going to be the majority in Paleo/Primal. (can't speak for other counties though)

    "starting tomorrow" rarely works. Start now. Say you ate a piece of cake at lunch but by dinner time were regretting it. Don't think "I'll start tomorrow, I ruined my day already so I may as well eat...

    bleh, I can't do higher than 75%. My go-to chocolate is Theo Chocolate which, lucky me, the factory is right down the street! I did splurge and buy $8/bar chocolate from Dick Taylor Chocolate (out of...

    Update!

    So we are nearing the end of the quarter and I'm about to lose my mind. We have a discussion forum for coursework or random topics and right now everyone is demonizing eggs. "I'm sure if...

    haha, you guys are awesome. The USDA is still pushing a low-fat or fat-free diet except they do encourage a limited amount of olive & canola oil. (side question RE: canola oil-- after learning about...

    Hey thanks! That's a great article, I might post that on my class forum. We have a few "Paleo leaning" people in my class but I'm the only outspoken and opinionated (see: annoying) one. I didn't...

    I agree, please add some veggies! Kale is a superfood (meaning TONS of vitamins and minerals), strawberries have a ton of vitamin C and spinach & broccoli provide calcium. Variety is key!

    Also,...
  16. USDA says butter and cream are "empty calories". Thoughts?

    Back story: I had to do a "perfect day" nutrient analysis for my nutrition class using supertracker.usda.gov and design a day that is perfect according to them. Anyway, I fudged it of course so I can...

    Um, read into things much?

    No, I'm not being judgmental, I've just never heard of "no carb" (not the same as low-carb) as an everyday norm, particularly in a westernized society. I don't think she...

    I wouldn't say we don't need any carbs to function-- that seems a bit extreme. And carbs come from fruits & veggies, I hope you are eating those-- otherwise you could develop diverticulitis and then...

    No gym or equipment-- best free workouts?

    I've got the local park and my very tiny living room, any ideas how to get started with Primal workouts? I'm thinking lunges and sprinting at the nearby park but... what else? What kinds of heaving...

    Thanks for the replies, everyone!

    So far, my reading is condemning fat ("use sparingly") & meat ("5-7 oz per day, every other day") while happily pushing grains and legumes (with every meal)....
