    I had watercress last night with dinner. I've never had it before. It's really really good. I know for sure that there are veggies that I simply just plain like. I do think meat (or eggs) needs to be the heart of any meal, though.

    This time I used some of my very rich bone broth to cook the liver in along with the butter. The gelatin in the broth gave a nice firmness to the pate'.

    Yep, chicken livers work too and are avery mild flavor.

    Several weeks ago I ground up lamb liver and beef heart along with a batch of ground beef and froze some. Had meat balls in tomato sauce that night and I think I'll make a meatloaf tonight. This is so easy.
    It is easy, isn't it?

    Seriously and honestly, no, I don't miss anything I'm not eating (have you seen the list a few pages back? I'm still using condiment veggies and seaweed.

    I did dabble for a very short while in ZC. I didn't do it right (mostly muscle meats, never made broth, rarely ate shellfish, etc) and it lasted less than a month so not a real try.

    PB, do you think it's possible you may be experiencing Stockholm syndrome? Since you pretty much have to eat VLC due to your condition, I think it makes sense. It shouldn't matter though, and I reckon it's better to like what you have to do than hate it, right? A coworker is gluten free due to an intolerance, but she's pretty miserable about it and since she's a vegetarian (by choice) she's double fucked.
    No not Stockholm at all. I'm not prisoner in something restrictive, I honestly don't like carby foods and only ate a bunch of veggies because I though I was supposed to. It feels liberating to just eat as much as I want of only what I want. What feels restrictive is some forum "wisdom" that each meal must be "balanced".

    This is exactly my experience too. The feeling of a stuffed stomach becomes something you need to learn to get over. Satiation=/=stuffed.

    For me it's bell peppers. I could eat them raw just for a tasty snack so they stay in my diet as a condiment around the meaty heart of the meal.

    Watercress has a great mild flavor and for a leafy green there is barely any bitterness to speak of so thumbs up for that! It stands up to sautéing and also does wonderful as a salad green. And it reminds me of that old E.B White book The Trumpet of the Swan where the main character, the swan Luis, would only eat watercress sandwiches.

    Last night I invented a new way to use Sea Tangle kelp noodles. I boiled them in a can of clam juice until most of it had soaked into the noodles and reduced down to thick. Then I put in a can of clams, a can of oysters, and a can of crab meat and stirred it up with a bit of cream. Seafood Alfredo Primal style. It was delicious.

    Then I had a big chunk of goat for dinner tonight in shroom, onion, garlic, peppers, and broth. I think I am able to mix it up enough to keep things interesting.

    Cabrito~
    NOM!

    I get real primal when it's goat eating time... fingers get licked and sucked, so do bones.
    Last time I was down in Miami I was in a little Cuban restaurant and ordered it. And husband and I were drinking the local Cuban beers and dousing the hot sauce and I picked up the bones to suck the marrow... and the restaurant owner came over and sat right don with us and took a break... drank a beer with us. He told me he'd never met a white girl who at their food with such gusto and he appreciated it. Good times.
    I've been declared an "official Floridian" even though I'm an import. <3

    Oh, and good job promoting the gut health even without cold potatoes!
    “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    This cabrito was the first meat I've eaten from my new fruit farm meat order. It was so much more tender and juicy than the goat I usually find in the Asian supermarket. The livestock at this place, Eden Tropics, are pampered like house pets because they help out so much around the fruit farm, eating the tree trimmings and any unsalable fruit plus providing a never ending supply of organic fertilizer and getting the owners a discount on their fire insurance because they keep the undergrowth munched. These are happy sheep, cattle, and goats. I'm glad they had a nice life and are now making some wonderful food for me.

    And seriously, cold potatoes are bad enough but eating raw potatoes? WTF? I agree with you. Not food.

    That sounds like such a smart idea, for the fruit farmer I mean. I wish I was a farmer. I would totally be an avocado rancher.

    I ate half a quart of goat yogurt yesterday. I'll eat the other half today.

    Cabrito is the best, make "seco de cabrito" following this recipe and adjusting for your carnivorous ways: Cilantro Lamb Stew with Potatoes - Seco de Cordero - Recipe for Seco de Cordero (Lamb Stew)

    It's my absolute favorite Peruvian dish. I never had it with potatoes like that recipe says, my family makes it with white rice and brown beans (beans usually blended) but the best part is the goat and the ridiculous sauce. The rest is just to be able to feed lots of people, extra calories - not much to do with the taste. Though you best believe I always eat the rice and beans, when they're given to me. If I made this for myself I wouldn't bother, though I'd probably add potatoes... I do love potatoes.
    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

    I love goat yogurt. Goat kefir is good too.

    Oooh,nice spices. I would probably sub wine for the beer or just go with the broth.

    I'm really finding my bone broth to be a central staple in my new diet. It just feels so deeply nourishing.
