    Primal Fuel
    I made a homemade "granola" in which I did not use any grain. Then I found a recipe that used granola to make granola bars. I make them for DH. Primal or not PB will not be leaving our house anytime soon. Maybe for the lunch sandwich you could find gluten free tortillas or something similar. Chowstalker has a few cracker recipes that you might be able to whip up for him to put his PB on for snacks. They also had a recipe for Mac and Cheese that used cauliflower if I remember correctly. There is probably one for chicken nuggets as well.

    I made a homemade Nutella for DD you just process nuts, and chocolate, and add a touch of sweetener. That might get him off of the PB at snack time?

    He is going to be a hard one.

    Thanks for the great ideas. I need to experiment with bread baking.

    It should not be that hard since you aren't really trying to limit their carbs. It is when you cut out the grains and limit carbs that it gets difficult to make those sorts of substitutions.

    Pebbles, your family sounds much like mine (3yr old and teenager) and they went primal by captive. They still eat their favs when we go out (or when the teenager goes to church youth group), but since we don't go out often, I don't sweat it. I have found primal subs for many of their favs and now, it's kinda the norm to them (like the Naratha Almond butter instead of PB). I used elanaspantry.com for lots of baked treats and do go out of my way to make stuff that I know they'll like a lot of the time. Just take it one step at a time and do the best you can on any given day and you will be amazed at the progress you can make. Best of Luck!

    Oh, and beware of the "Crack Granola" that demuralist was talking about. I made it (from the getting your kids off cereal thread) and that stuff is soooo adictive - I just can't keep my hands out of it - esp. when it is fresh out of the oven!

    thanks, I think. It makes a good base for bars as well.

    Welcome Mudflinger, Thanks for the encouragement. I have been reading Sarah Fragoso's "Everyday Paleo". She has some great ideas. I think I just have to get comfortable with cooking.

    Funny Story...I went home after work yesterday and found my husband in the kitchen. I started talking to him about going gluten free and as primal as possible in the house, not bringing in garbage food etc. He was agreeing with me wholeheartedly, but he kept backing up towards two grocery bags on the floor. I looked down. He said "I didn't know and they were on sale." He had purchased 10 boxes of breakfast bread mix and 5 boxes of Pasta.

    WOW, your husband grocery shops! I just donated a bunch of stuff from my pantry to a local second harvest.

    Hahaha! I think that would kill me. I have ~10 bottles of assorted beer left over from my Dread RPG game night on Friday. I'm very proud that I haven't touched 'em. Yet. Wine I seem to handle okay but beer and whiskey ( ) don't react well with me. I might have allergies or sensitivities I'm not aware of.

    Everyday Paleo sounds like an interesting book. I'll have to see if there's a review out there in internet land.

    Are there ever evenings that you aren't home that the boys have to fend for them self? Maybe keep that around for them in those situations. Or make a deal where you'll allow them to keep half but half of the stuff he just bought has to go to a local food pantry.
