    L love creme brulee. Do you make it from scratch? If so, what sweetener do you use?

    Your food looks yummy. Fun reading what people eat. Often makes my hungry LOL.

    Oh, no. If I made creme brulee at home, I would be eating WAY more than a cup.

    Once a week I go out for a sashimi lunch, and that's where I get the dessert. The creme brulee is made with SUGAR. As this is the only sugar I eat each week, and is buffered by plenty of cream and eggs, I am fine with it. Although, it is tasting sweeter to me than it used to. I have scraped off the carmelized crunch since I went primal, and I can (with some sadness) see the day looming when I will decide that it is too sweet for me and stop having it every week.

    I have gotten some good meal ideas from reading what other people eat. (And some bad ones- I'm looking at YOU, Winencandy. Curse the deliciousness of those choco-coco hearts!)

    Why would you be sad that it's too sweet? That means you can move on from it and enjoy better richer foods. Maybe it's because of the direct translation from french (burnt creame) but I never held creme brulee up to any high standards. Milk, cream, egg, bake, blowtorch...

    I have never had creme brulee so I have no idea what I missing. But I understand the sadness of no longer allowing something into your diet. I think we all do. Yesterday when I was vowing to avoid sugar, I quickly thought of Mt. Dew, which I allow myself to enjoy on Saturday. No sugar (other than that naturally occuring in foods) means no sugar means no dew. That makes me a very sad little bunny. I used to look forward to my one Dew a week...

    Jenn, I find it helps me to think of it as choosing something better. Find yourself something wonderful to enjoy as a replacement maybe. High-end olives from the olive cart, maybe, or whatever seems wonderfully indulgent to you. Pecorino siciliano or some other wonderful cheese.

    It's like giving up a boyfriend you've outgrown. he's not good for you, but the memory of the happy times makes it sad to sy good-bye. (And yes, I realize it is seriously disturbing to equate creme brulee with a human relationship. What can I say? Custard makes me weak in the knees.)

    For me primal friendly replacements have to have a similar flavor and texture. Pork rinds or veggie chips for potato chips, berries and coconut creme for ice cream or yogurt.

    Jenn, I don't know which would be worse once a month reg dew with all the sugar or diet dew with the chemicals. I did choose to have 1 diet soda a month, but now I have given up all sweeteners.

    Oh, wow. I'm flying now.

    This morning I walked into the library. Not wearing anything special- my workout capris (grey knit) and my black 'Wheat is Murder' t-shirt. I HAD just been complimented on my hair at the grocery store, so maybe I was walking tall and proud.

    Our librarian, Florence, who has known me almost 21 years, but hasn't seen me for a couple of months, saw me. First words out of her mouth: "You've lost some weight." I said, "A little." (Does anyone else have this superstition of not wanting to admit to weight loss in case they somehow 'jinx' it?) Then she said, 'You're getting thin. Trim as a racehorse. And fine with it."

    I may have to get this tattooed on me. Or at least printed up on a t-shirt.

    "Trim as a racehorse. And fine with it."

    Oh, yeah. I'll be strutting the rest of the day.

    LOL! That is really fine. Go ahead and strut.

    I'm not afraid of jinxing it, but I don't want to come across too smug either so I usually say, "I'm working on it" or something like that.
