Something ZOe, Betorq, and I share is elderly parents with health problems. I recently got my Dad to go Primal and he is off four out of his five meds and has the BP of a young person, at 86! Betorq has been making great progress getting his Mom on board. The fact that he is an awesome cook probably helps. I'm so glad Zoe's Dad is finally coming around as well.
I think there are probably a lot of people around here dealing with older relatives, trying to break through the blinders of CW and get them to see that this is not some new fad, it is a return to the way food is supposed to be.
Oh, and I want to make some fatbread!
I'm so glad you are feeling good and making progress. Stay with it.
yes, I can do the same for you. PM me, and I can give you the run-down of the process, costs, etc.
I think having a race to look forward to is a good idea -- or any kind of goal. I find that it really helps people to stay focused and have fun on the journey. Also, being a data-collector on yourself, it gives you something to measure.
In other news, I'm psyched about work transitioning to being finished at 3 pm.
This sets up DH's exercise day for Monday afternoon; DS and I will likely go swimming then so that I can teach DS how to swim. Then on Wednesday evenings I have skating; and then on Friday's we're going to be doing our hiking/adventures again. Sundays will alternate between archery and parkour lessons. Wednesday afternoon DS will have art time with our friend -- they both really enjoy it. And that leaves plenty of open time to just hang out at the park, the beach, and do normal life stuff.
Go figure that I already make myself busier before I've even finished being busy.
per my first ketostix test, i showed 'mild' ketosis on under 50 grams of carbs per day....i've been adjusting my protein down just a bit to stay near 60 grams, so we'll see what happens...
made some beef liver pate' cooling in the fridge now....tasted better than my first effort of classic 'liver and onions' but it is extremely RICH, so i'm not sure how much i can eat ....since i'm not eating any kind of cracker, how do you serve your pate'
i'm thinking of frying up some bacon and adding bacon bits to my next effort....has anyone ever tried bacon with the pate'?
PB, where do you find marrow bones and how do you cook (and eat) this? i used to pull the marrow out of my chicken drumsticks when i was a kid (turkey as well) and always ate the marrow from the 'round' bone in round steak...not sure how you make an entire meal of this!I've been eating a lot of bone marrow lately. It's a wonderfully fat source for ketosis and I swear it makes you feel like you've had a bone marrow transplant eating it. I always mean to keep the "used" bones for soup stock but I don't always succeed because my dog gives me *that look* and I just give in an let him have them. He has such fun slurping up any marrow bits I missed and gnawing off any gristly bits around the outside.
