    Great suggestions! Except for fruit... I'm better keeping sugar to a minimum (even fructose) - it affects my sleep too much.

    I used to eat it all the time - but I stopped because it's a grain... (I read an article that said it's okay but still not great). Does it work for you?

    I'll make a big pot of beef stew and use either turnips, parsnips, or rutabaga instead of potatoes. Can't even tell the difference.

    Rice if you need the calories.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    PS
    Don't forget to play!

    I find white rice very benign. I'd say that if you have issues with white rice, you have issues with glucose and carbs in general.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    If I dont eat moderate carb I get depressed and incredibly tired. I'm convinced it f*cks with my thyroid. Anyways,

    Carb staples in our house are:

    Spaghetti squash
    butternut squash
    Plantain
    Sweet potatoes
    pumpkin (usually to make a primal type pudding for dessert on my heavy lift days)
    bananas
    and white potatoes....yup, a lot of them too. And I've seen no issue with them. I don't really understand the fear of them in the paleo community.
