    Eat some. There's no reason not to.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    I'd love to try making my own ice cream! Just need to actually go out and get myself an ice cream maker.

    As far as ice cream "cheats", Haagen-Dazs makes these ADORABLE single-serving ice cream cups that are perfect for me! I've only tried the vanilla, but it's so good, I haven't had any desire to try the other flavors. Only five ingredients - milk, cream, eggs, sugar, and vanilla - and at 18g of carbs per tub, I can have one once or twice a week without guilt or tummy problems. They are my life saver.
    Life is short. Eat Beef!

    We have rhubarb in our garden, and I made a rhubarb-strawberry compote and stirred that into a vanilla ice cream base I made with part goat's milk (Choco's right, goat's milk = yummy) and heavy cream, and egg yolks. I used some organic demerara sugar, although less than most recipes - I really don't use sugar much at all, and figure it's not a big deal here for a splurge. Oh, and the compote had a little fresh rosemary (removed the spring before putting it into the ice cream), which made it wow.

    This was a very good experiment!

    It's not cheating. If you like being on a diet... I can suggest this:

    Jeni's is grass-fed. Definitely better quality than Haagen Dazs, as good as it is. Jeni's is expensive, but it's so satisfying that you don't have to eat a lot. That's the best way to cheat, i.e. eat stuff that's not good for you. (Diet has the anthropological meaning that's something like 'gastronomy' and the 'temporary attempt to lose weight' meaning. I of course mean the former. Since this isn't a linguistics forum, don't get into semantics.)

I hope my wedding cake is kind to my on my wedding night!
    Don't know when your wedding is or if you have the cake already but here's some amazing primal/paleo cake recipes. I've made the coconut cake at home and its so good. For our wedding, my fiancée and I found a gluten free bakery that is gonna take up the challenge to work with coconut flour. For the meal, Whole Foods is also not only willing but excited to cook primal because they do so many vegan weddings and they're all meat lovers! Grok on!

    I've never had it, but my family back in Ohio rave about it. So thanks! I'll have to drop by a Gelson's and get me some!
    Haha. Awesome. Hope you can find it!

    True, there is that latent attachment to certain foods from our childhood and it's fun to experiment with eating it (we might still enjoy it, it might make us sick, we might have exaggerated preprimal memories of its goodness, etc.), but if your not chasing that, IMHO, fanciest, highest quality cheats are the most rewarding.

    I wanna get Jeni's cookbook so bad and hack her recipes to be primal. Will definitely post those when I do.

    McConnell's french vanilla. Nothing even comes close and I've had some very good ice creams.

    Well, I took a taste, one lick to see if it was real good. It was great. But self-experimentation shows that I am far better off without sugar, so it was not worth triggering the problems, so I stopped while I could.

    Gonna make a super-choclaty ice-cream for the Father's Day for my husband with 70% chocolate, coco powder and some white choco chunks. Home-made ice-cream >> store-bought.

    Although, I wish they would just use sugar or honey. There's no reason to use agave syrup, but I guess it seems "organic" to do so.

    I was thinking the same thing! I picked up some sugar free mint chocolate chip a few weeks ago and it was awesome!

    Another great option - make "Get Some Ice Cream" from the Bulletproof Executive site » Recipe: Creamy Coconut “Get Some” Ice Cream (Paleo friendly) The Bulletproof Executive!!
    I've made this a few times and it is to die for. I use coconut crystals instead of xylitol. It is amazingly rich and creamy, and tastes like the best vanilla ice cream I've ever had. You can even go nuts and melt up some good dark chocolate with some coconut oil and pour it over top for paleo magic shell. Insanely good stuff, it'll make you happy, for sure! (Among other things!)

    Viking Feast ice cream is very good. They use local cows with the healthy mutation of the A2 gene.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
