    I have discovered bok choy, brussels sprouts, kale, sugar snap peas, macadamia nuts and tomatoes (yeah I knew about tomatoes but hated eating them until now).

    The first thing I found that I really enjoy now is yogurt..... particularly greek yogurt. I have never been a "rotten milk product" fan, but I really like greek yougurt! Whodathunkit.
    Next on the list have been a variety of squashes. Acorn, pumpkin (other than pie),patty pan, delicata. Roast them in a little olive oil with a touch of salt and pepper.... ohhh yum

    And stirfry... with bok choy

    I think they are really similar to yellow summer squash. They seem to go by many names. Wikipedia gives a list including:
    Christophene, cho-cho, mirliton, pear squash, choko, pipinola, and güisquil.
    Chayote - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    My stepmom called them mirlitons and stuffed them with shrimp and breadcrumbs and stuff. They were awesome.

    Vegetables. I despised everything except onions, garlic, and mushrooms before I started Primal. I have been reborn as a vegetable lover...

    I still have to check the nearest Wal-Market (Walmart Market?) but if Smith's didn't have any, I don't have much hope for Wal-Market.

    I shopped at Trader Joe's in Ohio when I was TDY there (TDY=MilitarySpeak for "business trip".) It was a pretty small one, and I noticed right off that it's not necessarily primal/paleo, but there's plenty of selection of good stuff! I'm hoping we get a big Trader Joe's here!

    Sweet potatoes. I mean, I knew about and ate them before, but I have a new appreciation for them now on heavy workout days. Sliced and baked in foil with coconut oil, chili powder, and garlic salt? Holy freaking crap.

    Also, sardines are awesome. Better than tuna in my opinion. Also, liver is tasty if you do it right. And way more avocados in the last year than I'd had in my entire life previously.
