    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.
    Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    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.

    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.

    Same. When I crack open a tub of sour cream I'm lucky if it lasts until the next day. It's just so good on EVERYTHING. Definitely a once in a long while kind of buy for me, but only because of my gross lack of self control.

    I definitely am in the same boat as yourself Sir! I bought an all natural Cup of Sour Cream last evening and magically its empty today morning

    Good to know its a great Dairy-Fat (with low low carb content)

    DITTO!

    Luckily here in CO we have access to high quality sour cream (organic, pastured, etc) at some natural health food stores...
