    What new foods have you discovered from being primal?

    Particularly ones that you like (or love) now and incorporate into your diet?

    For me, I discovered sweet potatoes, pomegranates, rabbit, beef jerky, and avocados. I'm trying parsnips right now. I have at least one sweet potato every week and try to have avocados every week when they're in season.

    What about you??

    Meat? I've never been a big meat water and becoming primal has helped me to rediscover the joys of animal protein. And butter. I actually slice off pieces of butter and eat it when I feel like I'm not getting enough calories in my day. Before, I would just have eaten cereal or something.

    Avocado, spaghetti squash, sweet potatoes, chia seeds, dark chocolate



    edit: meat isn't new to me, but, grass fed meat is, and I love it!

    Mmm...yes...love the taste of coconut and it adds so much to pork, eggs, sweet potatoes, cauliflower.

    I have always liked avocado, but was very timid about it. Now I will add 1/2 a cut up avocado to garnish all kinds of soups and Asian or Mexican meat dishes.

    I was never a fan of chicken thighs, but after having them from pasture raised chickens, I prefer them to breasts.
