    If the MEALS you eat are fantastic, you'll feel less need for dessert and treats. This is not a diet, this is not diet food. To me, primal food is rich, decadent, hearty and satisfying. Eating steak for lunch IS a treat!

    In terms of tempting the kids - I've made primal cupcakes with just a small amount of honey because my daughter especially is pretty sugar addicted, she wouldn't eat them - I had the idea of making them with sugar and then gradually reducing it. My son eats a good variety of foods but my daughter is very fussy. I'd read that coconut flour was a good source of protein so was thinking that primal cakes might be better than conventional cakes. Desperation talking! I am working on getting her to eat more proper food too and we're getting there. I guess i was looking for some short cuts! Silly really.
    Stop trying to trick them into thinking they're eating sugar and liking it. That is even more ridiculous than hiding veggies in cupcakes. Cake is cake is cake is cake. Cake is a treat. Its junk food. You know what else is a good source of protein? Meat! Clearly your daughter is following your patterns, and now is the time to replace those bad habits and lead by example. SERVE good food and let her choose which good foods she will eat at that meal. If she doesn't eat, she'll be good and hungry at the next meal.

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    As a dark chocolate eater for years, I can honestly say this must be individual because I have had no problem eating an entire bar of 85% chocolate in one sitting in the past. I am now to getting used to 100%. It is much better for me because I only eat 1 square at a time.

    I took your advice and nibbled on a square of baker's chocolate in my pantry. My taste buds are crying, and they are not happy tears.

    Damiana-
    I think it's an acquired taste. Anything sweet (sugar in any form--including artificial) is a 'trigger' for me, so I've learned to love unsweetened chocolate. Perhaps everyone can't 'acquire' the taste for it, but I'm glad I did because I can get my chocolate without the sugar.
