    They want to have their cake and eat it too.

    I'm the opposite. I have had no problem eliminating breads and flour-based baked goods and I don't want a weak substitute. I'm interested in primal recipes that focus on non CW ways of preparing food. There are so many great primal things to eat that I don't miss bread. I do indulge in bread, pizza, desserts now and then and I have the real thing. But they don't have the hold over me that they once did.
    *My obligatory intro

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    I make grain free baked goods for my 14 yr. old. He eats mostly paleo so I don't see any problem with him having home made treats. We are in this for the long haul and I don't want him to feel like he is on a diet. On special occasions I'll make a paleo cake or tart that we all enjoy. My husband and I generally don't miss the baked goods, with the exception of pizza, DH really likes pizza. I've tried a few different kinds and he is pretty happy with them. We only make pizza once every couple of months.

    It seems like a lot of primal "treats" are posted by people with families and maybe kids and husbands that want "normal" foods. You know, kid wants a cupcake, better it be primal.
    mostly i do it for the kids. if i want junk, i make junk (though i usually make it gluten free because then i have fewer after-effects of eating it). since one of my kids doesn't like eating meat and veg for breakfast every morning, i make her primalized pancakes. same for tortillas: the kids will eat taco salad, but sometimes they really want the extra carbs in my tapioca tortillas, so i make some for them. i don't think it's necessary to be so strict with my kids, so i'm happy to oblige them once in a while.

    I'm not really into fake baking, either. If I want a treat, I have something that I like that doesn't have grains in it (e.g. ice cream or chocolate).

    Bingo. And they want results without doing too much research on what and why.
    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
    READ THE BOOK! Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

    and yes, calories DO count my little piggies
