    Primal Fuel


    @ maba

    Thanks!

    It seems to be you and me on a "hopeless" campaign against the "vegetarian horde"

    I think fish is the way to go with my wife to start with, like I said she eats it but not very much. Step 2 would be to introduce wild game. This fall, when hunting season begins I will get my hands on a pile of moose.

    On the "powerball" notion, I've ended up with truffley yummy things

    Going solely on contents of fridge, I food-processed sunflower, hemp and pumpkin seeds; few leftover walnuts; handful of sultanas; and pecan nuts.

    Ended up with about 6 handfuls of flour-textured stuff with odd bigger lumps.

    Worked through about 2 tablespoons of (organic) butter, good lot of cocoa powder, then squidged it into balls and rolled the balls in more cocoa powder. They're now in fridge....


    I was worried about them not being sweet enough hence the sultanas, but I think using coconut would remove this need? Plus I find some nuts sweeter than others, so next time I'll try with pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, instead of just seeds!


    Good for a chocolate fix though, if not the old sugar hit


    PS - am very new to this and easing in, so still have a relatively sweet tooth and trying to minimise "damage" while I adjust

    When I was young, mother used to make a disgustingly yummy concoction which I inherited and used to use as fuel when walking.


    She/I melted lard and added sugar and cocoa powder, then mixed in broken biscuits, nuts and sultanas and allowed to cool into a still slightly sticky mess which could be cut into bars.


    These powerballs sound like a Primal version which would not leave me flat on my back from high BG followed by a hypo.


    My current alternative is a load of mixed nuts and a smaller quantity of dried fruit, which works when used sparingly. I'll have to try these and report back.
