Bestbetter - sorry to hear your husband is experiencing the same curious conundrum. I think I agree with you and some of the other posters and think that some more carbs might be in order. My initial foray into the Primal lifestyle made me a little wary of excess carbohydrate consumption. The wonderful thing about PB, though, is how much it encourages you to experiment and listen to your own body. It is quite possible that my body is telling me to eat more 'taters! Fortunately I've always loved 'em (I jokingly credit my Irish ancestry and insist that the Potato Famine made my ancestors crave potatoes and they passed that down....too soon?), so I'm going to try to get more starch in me and see how that does.
Ann - thank you! That sounds very doable and delicious, and thanks for not making me feel superbly silly for not knowing what to do with a parsnip If they're good pureed, I'm wondering how they do just steamed and buttered and seasoned with garlic. Can you fry them in butter or lard? Now you got me all excited to try something new in the kitchen (and I *love* playing in my kitchen).
