    things nobody tells you

    like, for instance, coconut flour can NOT be substituted one for one with regular flour, and that you should expect to, oh, TRIPLE your liquid in your recipe! I made my standard cupcake recipe with coconut flour, and instead of being a smooth pour-able batter, it was as thick as gellato!

    any other tips and tricks people have learned over time with primal eating that no one told you?

    Before or after we started?

    Like... um... stop trying to fit your old lifestyle into your new one?

    LOL, yup, been there, done that. You figure it out. That's half the fun of baking!

    yeah, my cupcakes turned out pretty good, not sweet enough for my hubby, but as it's my birthday, I made them to my tastes.

    Also, people DO tell you that your tastebuds change, and you taste sweet way more, and they are NOT lying! WOW what a difference!

    Yeah, eventually fruit tastes like straight sugar, and right now I'm going through a "holy cow why is everything so salty?" phase

    Seasoning cast iron is not as easy as everyone pretends it is.

    That your poop may go through a crazy transition phase :P

    Edit: But then again, based on where this post is placed, maybe you meant in relation to primal cooking
