    Another good 'breading' is dehydrated onion, ground into dust/crumbs in your food processor. I used to use this all the time in my Atkins days. Need to try it again, I remember it tasting FANTASTIC! Maybe mixed with a little coconut flour, as well.

    There was maple syrup in this morning's sausages, but I picked the brand of breakfast sausages with the fewest weird ingredients. I'm going to have to keep my eyes open for breakfast sausages without sugar. Honestly, I don't like my sausages sweet anyway. But Hubby was getting tired of bacon. (Yes Ecks, you read that right. He wanted a change of pace.)

    I tried a spoonful of D-ribose last night on a mostly empty stomach.
    CM, even when the scale is not moving, things are happening - inches are being lost.

    Judg, I'm getting tired of sausage, but I found one that has so little sugar in it that it doesn't even register on the nutrition info: Jones All Natural Fully Cooked Mild

    What is D-ribose and why is it so important that we would take an extractive of corn?

    On an entirely different note, Siobhan is right. Primal eliminates BO. We were up around 45 degrees C yesterday, when you took the humidity into account (that's well over 100F, but I don't feel like figuring it out precisely). My Tshirt still smelled freshly washed at the end of the day. We don't have air conditioning. Fans, yes, but it was still awfully hot in here. Today I remembered that I had bought a pair of polymer-crystal bandanas last year and dug them out. They're a great help.
    My favorite Primal pancakes are made with eggs and cream cheese.

    2 eggs
    2 oz cream cheese
    1 tbsp coconut flour
    1 tsp vanilla

    Blend, let settle, pour onto hot griddle, flip and serve with cream cheese, strawberries and whipped cream. So freaking yummy. And low cal too if you're interested. The whole get up is one serving!!

    And Siobhan IS right... I only wear deodorant when it's super super hot out b/c I don't like that sticky feeling. Otherwise, absolutely no BO here for weeks!!

    Thumbs up

    Fruit aside, I haven't permitted any sweets in the 3 weeks I've been primal. Thought about a dark chocolate bar, but really got intrigued when you mentioned mixing coconut oil, cocoa & stevia the other day. Especially because I thought.... ohhhh it can be soft, like frosting or fudge, depending on temperature. So I kept meaning to make this magical "Judg Fudg" and yesterday I finally gave it a shot...

    diptic_1340474476370-400.jpg

    I used 2 tbsp oil, 2 tsp cocoa, scoop of stevia, and tossed in some pecans and shredded coconut. Pretty sure my proportions are all wrong (I've since looked up a few recipes using just these three ingredients) and the stevia taste was way too strong for me, but ironically two of my roommates loved it and it was gone rather promptly.

    Will experiment some more. Found this orange version which I might give a go.

    Jenn26point2, the pancakes sound delicious and I am trying them for tomorrow's breakfast.

    DashFire, I couldn't open your attachment but will try mixing those ingredients (except will use liquid stevia as that's what I have on hand.) The orange chocolate sounds YUM!

    Also use as breading in a meat loaf.....grind up in the food processor and mix with ground beef and what ever other seasonings you use and it takes the place of the traditional bread crumbs.
    Chicharrons? The bagged pork rinds are just OK, as far as I'm concerned, but I remember having home-made ones on occasion way back when, and I loved them.

    Ideas, ideas.

    Judg fudg! Love it! Sounds like you're being more successful than I am. I never thought of adding nut pieces or coconut. Looks like more experimenting is on the books. Ironically though, I'm kind of sick of sweets right now, even the stevia version. Had veggie cravings today, LOL!

    Sounds like my kind of sausage. Had some Abruzzese dry sausage at my in-laws' the other day. It was great, and so much less junk in it than most North American sausages.

    D-ribose is a sugar that our body manufactures that is absolutely essential for our metabolism to run smoothly. People with chronic fatigue are low in it, generally speaking. It does seem strange to be taking a sugar, especially since the doctor advocating it is so strictly paleo, but if I remember right, it goes straight to the cells. Anyway, it's an essential ingredient in the biochemical process that provides energy to our cells. I don't think there's any reason why people in general would need to take it, although athletes apparently do before exercise.

    I've been pretty wiped the last couple of days, partly due to an energy hangover and mostly due to poor sleep. We had a few really hot, muggy days that were hard on me. But basically, I have to get out of the bad habit of pushing myself a little too hard. I do have to admit, after reading Dr. Myhill's material, now that I know what is actually going on in my body when I push myself, it's going to be much easier to persuade myself to back off. Knowledge is power. Finding out what carbs and sugars were doing to me (I'm afraid I just thought of them as excess calories before) had a similar effect: now I look at them and see trouble hiding behind the deliciousness. No thanks!

    For those interested in my CFS saga, I've added these supplements to the list: D-ribose, niacinamide, L-carnitine, B12 (sublingual methylcobalamin), CoQ10, and magnesium citrate. Whew! I'm getting a ridiculous number of supplement bottles in the cupboard. Looking forward to the day when I can back off a few of them. Anyway, these latest additions are to "feed" the mitochondria, basically putting the necessary chemicals back in my cellular batteries.

    The supplements will take a while before showing results, and I might actually have to move backwards first. One of the things the body gets behind in with CFS is detoxing, so when things start improving, it finally finds the energy to take out the trash. I've had fair warning.

    The B12 tablets do tend to give me a bit of a pick-me-up though.

    Spending a very quiet day at home today. Or at least it was quiet until DS started working on his recordings.

    Well, Dash has inspired me. So I tried making Judg Fudg his way, basically coconut oil mixed with cocoa, stevia, nuts and coconut. It's been hot here, so my coconut oil is entirely liquid, so I put the concoction in the fridge. Verdict? Gets awfully hard. It would work well if I put them in individual candy cups, I guess. Mixing it with a nut butter has the advantage of making it creamier, and easier to eat with a spoon. I generally just make up one or two helpings, to avoid overdoing it, in a small jar or a demi-tasse. These are my private snacks. I don't share them with DH or DS because they have almost no sense of moderation. LOL! Hey, don't look at me like that. I'm protecting them from themselves.

    Hubby has managed to lose more than five pounds in the last month, despite less exercise than normal, and cheating heavily 2-3 times a week. He's pretty good at home, but he eats his mother's cooking every time he's over there, and it usually isn't primal friendly. Seeing as he gives his sisters a break from driving their parents around when he's home for the summer, he's over there 3-4 times a week. With the Eurocup on, he stays even longer... So it's quite amazing he's doing so well. I'm sure that feeding him iced coffee fairly often helps. Feels like an indulgence.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaand I tried making up the kale chips in this week's recipe today. It was faster than the other methods I had seen, so less daunting. Verdict? Not bad. DS was not impressed (not dippable and not exciting on their own) and hubby hasn't tried them yet. They are at least quick and easy enough to make on their own. So I'll likely make them again, experimenting with seasonings.

    Final note: I definitely prefer pork liver to beef liver. I only had a small piece though, with a spicy onion gravy, because I have little appetite today. But I'm going to be cautious with fasting, so as not to tire myself more than I already have. I was doing so well, and got overly optimistic and got ahead of my energy again. I want this to be the last time I wear myself out stupidly. It can take two weeks or more to recover when I do that, and it doesn't take too much. New mantra: DO NOT OVERSTEP YOUR LIMITS!

    New low today. That's 6 pounds in 10 weeks, which is fast enough to make me happy. I'll be at my goal a little after Christmas at this rate.

    I like the kale ribs, personally. I ate them like crudites, with mayo.

    Energy is picking up a little. Yesterday's quiet day helped.
