    I was an insomniac from the age of 11-30/31. Lots of stress and anxiety that I went through. I started sleeping better when I was working out and losing weight. My sleep has really gotten a lot better within the past year. Magnesium helps me relax and my mind doesn't race like it used to unless my husband and I either get into an argument or I watch a scary movie.

    Wow, I am STILL sore from all those steps.

    I just found out that my YMCA has put up a new heavy bag for me to beat on. Some idiot ruined it with a knife a while back, and it took months for the YMCA to get a new one. Kind of weird because I wouldn't expect that in my area.

    Anyway, I haven't updated the website yet with new stuff, but for sure I plan to get the "pro" version so I can do all the cool stuff like having videos and audio clips, and lots of other neat stuff. It's kind f fun building it, but unless I upgrade, I will eb very limited, and BORING.

    Today, I had beanless chili. I have never made that before. Until Primal, I was a big consumer of all beans. It would not be uncommon for me to make chili with 80 - 100 ounces of beans in the batch.

    I made this w/o a recipe, but this should be close:

    Beanless Chili:

    4 ounces of bacon grease
    2 pounds of diced stew meat
    2 chopped onions
    2 diced jalapenos
    2 cloves of garlic, chopped
    about 36 ounces of fresh tomatoes, processed in my cuisinart until just barely chunky. I didn't skin or de-seed them.
    3 TBS of chili seasoning
    1 TBS of chili powder
    2 TBS of maple syrup... yes, maple syrup.....
    salt and pepper


    Sear the diced stew meat in the bacon grease and set aside. You may have to do it in batches. I did.

    Saute the onions, garlic, and jalapenos in the remaining grease - there won't be much left. Be careful not to let anything burn.

    Now take EVERYTHING and put it in a dutch oven if you have one. Cook in a 325 degree oven for 2 - 2.5 hours.

    Now, since rice isn't rally primal, here is what I did: I riced a big head of cauliflower and put the stew over it.... It was good, but I am not sure I would do it again. It took a few bites to adjust to chili and caulilflower in the same bite. The chili was really tasty, tho.

    I am sure you could easily adapt to stove top use, but I didn't want to have to be stirring all day.

    Here is adaptability.... I took the leftovers from the recipe above, and stuffed it into some green bell peppers, and voila`, stuffed peppers.

    That chili recipe sounds really good for the slow cooker too.

    My husband doesn't sleep very well either. However, he refuses to try anything more than one night, so that is his burden to bear. I really think it has a lot to do with his constant use of the television, but who knows?

    Good luck, hopefully your new way of eating will have added benefits.

    I really like chili, even without beans, but I always used to eat it over rice and now I'm having a hard time feeling like my chili meal is 'complete' without it. Cornbread was always tasty too. Perhaps cauliflower rice would give me what I mentally feel is missing?

    I don't know why, but my stomach is rumbling like a freight train today. I didn't really eat anything I wouldn't have been eating my whole life.

    Maybe its the cauliflower. I have that effect with anything in the cabbage family.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
