    Squash instead of greens - still 100% PB?

    Since its winter here and very cold i tend to eat veggies that i can have warm (steamed or roasted) like butternut and gem squash much more than greens (salads), is this ok or will it stall my progress?

    depends on what you mean by progress? By progress do you mean moving towards a PB diet? Or do you mean weight loss?

    Remember that some greens (chard, spinach, watercress, collards) can all be eaten hot- in soups or saute'ed in butter (or bacon grease and garlic... mmmm).

    I can't think of any obvious reason that squash would stall you out.

    I'll second collard greens! Delicious stuff, and packed with bacon (or ham hocks) and spices and all manner of delicious things. Always cheers me up on a cold day.

    thanks will try the tips - though i don't eat bacon, i'm sure i can find a substitute. Somehow i had it in my mind that it should only be eaten raw - must be the lack of greens thats causing my brain loss

    What could possibly not be Primal about eating seasonal vegetables? One of the joys of PB for me is getting to markets and finding that there are different things to eat at different times of year. Winter here in the UK meant squashes, root vegetables... oh, and kale. Green kale, purple kale, steamed kale, stir-fried kale...

    Squash has never stalled my weight loss. Butternut us by far my favorite.

    How is eating squash bad for you?!?!

    It's a vegetable (fruit), seasonal in the winter, etc. etc. yadda yadda, and it ain't a big crust of sourdough bread.
