    Primal Fuel


    Hi,


    I've been trying a primal diet for a while coupled with IF (eating during a 6-9 hour window), but I'm struggling between meals (I get hungry and eat something non-primal).


    I'm searching for primal snacks recipes, but most of them require almond or coconut flour - and I can't find both of them.


    So, I'd like some primal snacks suggestions so I can eat more "primally"


    Thanks,

    juca

    this topic is often discussed. I was thinking about studying the topic a little more lately. I have been hitting the nuts and nut butters pretty hard lately and looking to cut it out. An interesting observation, I find nut-butters less satiating than whole nuts.


    The typical things people list are:

    nuts

    fruit

    jerky

    coconut

    veggies

    hard boiled eggs

    cocao nibs

    chocolate

    smoothies

    pork rinds

    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

    rotisserie chicken dipped in almond butter - my fave!


    sliced apples sprinkled w/ cinnamon dipped in almond butter - my 2nd fave (but I probably eat way too much almond butter)

    Sir grandma I'm opposite of you! I find that I can eat and eat and eat when I have whole almonds/walnuts/pecans in front of me, but 1 tablespoon of almond butter will satiate that craving.


    I also like leftover meat (especially flank steak or whole chicken)

    and Hard Boiled Eggs

    and half an avocado sprinkled with a bit of sea salt

    and beef jerky

    PG no clue why cocao nibs are expensive. Never bought them myself. I was just listing things that people snack on.


    I have been thinking about trying to get more of my snack calories from animal products. When I do snack on animal fat it would tend to be cheese, but I'm not sure that is the best idea either, so I'm thinking eggs and jerky may be the way to go

    Do HB Eggs! They are the best ever. I mean it.

    I recently was introduced to the paleo kits. Those things are pretty good. Although, at 5 or 6 bucks a pop, they're pretty expensive. I usually make my own. just buy a bunch of beef jerky (as plain as possible), nuts, and some dried fruit. I usually weigh and measure mine but not necessary.

    Scotch eggs- yum. Whole hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat- yum, yum, yum.


    Tescos (UK) sells some really nice roasted almonds- a spcial kind that taste like a cross between almonds and macademias. Can't remember what they are called now- they are flat and round.
