    How Bad is Sour Cream?

    Ok, So I know this was probably far from primal but I was stuck in a position where I ate at Chipotle with some friends.

    I had a fajita bowl with pulled beef, tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, and sour cream. I know that some of this stuff is kinda of primal but how bad is the sour cream?

    I have lost 10lbs in two weeks (which is a lot for me as I only have about 30 to lose) so I know this is working but it's situations like these where I have trouble.

    Thanks

    I like sour cream, especially on my fajita bowls from Chipotle.

    From Chipotle's site 2 oz. sour cream is 10g of fat (7 from saturated) and 2g of carbs. I wouldn't sweat the SC.

    I eat and use SC a lot in my cooking. I wouldn't sweat it. Fermented dairy is better than the regular stuff.

    IF you can tolerate dairy, sour cream should be fine in small amounts. The non-dairy crowd may say that's part of the 20%, but there are far worse things you could eat at Chipotle, such as the flour tortillas.

    (note: I personally don't count fermented dairy in the 20% category, but that's just me.)

    Thanks everyone. I like SC so it's good to know I can have it occasionally - I've pretty much cut dairy out of my diet.

    Oh man, it's terrible... especially for me, I can't just open a container and use it... I have to finish it.

    How long has it been sitting out?

    Sorry. Sometimes I have absolutely no self control . . .

    For my money dairy is one of those borderline things that maybe should be avoided (by those who have a lot of weight to lose or who are dairy intolerant in some fashion or who really want to live like grok and camp in a cave and not pull on the teats of domesticated cows, goats, or sheep).

    *shrUg*

    Maybe I could lose weight faster if I cut it out. But small amounts of aged cheese and butter are two things that I enjoy in my diet and I don't think they're holding me back enough to dx them.

    Not an option in restaurants, but I've been using full fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It has a nice tang to it.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    Proper, thick sour cream is a staple in my cooking. It's pretty much the "most primal" of the milks along with greek yogurt and kefir.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
