    Pork Rinds/Skins

    Primal Fuel
    Are pork rinds/skins acceptable food for primal eating?

    I think they are as long as there aren't any other weird ingredients in there.

    It depends on how "caveman" you want to go.
    They wern't eating pork rinds, but they were eating wild pigs.
    I wouldn't use them as a staple food, but a treat once in awhile should be ok (if you're not super strict with your food rules)

    Yum. I love them. If they help keep you on track then that is a good thing. Just watch for additives as stated above.

    Make sure you read all the labels. Most of the commercial packaged Pork Rinds have a lot of preservatives and MSG. Best make your own Cracklins. Pork skin fried in it's own rendered fat is pretty awesome.

    There are some commercial ones that are just pork rinds and salt. Smithfield Original is one if I remember correctly. Good stuff.

    These are pretty good (follow link). You're in Northern California so you can find these at Lucky and Safeway for $2. I think the ingredients are pork skins, pork fat and some salt. Not a good staple as somebody already stated, but a great snack with salsa...mmmmmmm.

    Most plain / "original" pork rinds are nothing but pork skin and salt. I've actually yet to see a brand with ingredients beyond those. Buy them and flavor them yourself if you want to. I go through three or four bags a month, they're great for when you're still a little hungry after a meal.

    They are great for guacamole or any other dip as well. When you have that cravin' for somethin' crunchy they do the trick. Great for parties.

    Especially good as carriers for butter pats.

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
