    Unexpected side effect of primal eating....

    Shop Now
    Twice in the past few days, I've literally licked my plate clean. Not something I've done since I was a child. Haven't quite got to the point where my manners have retreated to paleolithic, so I've only done it when I've been on my own. But there's a certain childlike exhilaration to it.

    I think it's a combination of the food being so darned good, and there not being anything good to mop the juices up with. Primal eating doesn't seem to include any sponge-like foods.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

    That's too funny! Soon your kids will be at a birthday party and licking the plate clean...other parents will wonder and you will just laugh!

    I do this every. single. day. So much so that I really have to stop myself from doing it in public or when I have company over. In my mind, this is definitely a perk of living alone. One of my criteria for dating: "Would I be comfortable licking my plate clean in front of this man? No? Outa here, buddy."

    I do this with my bacon and eggs. The grease is wonderful.

    I haven't got quite that close...but do run my finger round the plate a few times to pick up the left over fat and mayo along with some random salt...nothing better at the end of a meal!!
