    That is why I never order omelet or scrambled egg when dining out, I only go for poached egg. I'm convinced that most places add flour to the egg mixture, because, well, it's obvious...

    So I only eat scrambled/omelet at home when I can make it myself.

    As for what I miss, I'm not sure anymore. But I've noticed my taste-buds are now very happy with food in it's natural tasting form. Meat baked/roasted/barbequed in heavy sauces make me queasy and do nothing for me now. Anything wheat-based makes me bloated for a couple of days, and my tolerance for "sweet" has dropped greatly.

    I still love me a good Italian pasta dish. I don't crave it or pizza though, and even when I decide "todays a cheat day" I frequently just end up eating a bunch of primal food. Then I wonder how I can even call that a cheat day. Yeah, I don't go running for the pasta soon as the chance comes up anymore.

    Going Primal has completely ruined takeout Chinese food for me. Now I can smell the nasty oils it's cooked with and it makes me want to gag.

    Oh, well. It's a good thing I know how to cook.

    A year and a half later and 100 pounds lighter on a PB WOE, I don't stress much about "cheating" because like many others here posted, going back and trying SAD staples these days is just, well, sad.

    Not saddening because there's water weight gain, or because I'm feeling guilty for straying. It's sad because that shit I used to love and live on (to excess) just ain't that great.

    It's a dietary equivalent to the old saying "You can never go home."

    I have made dumpling dough by putting cooked white rice and sweet rice (cooked a little soft) through the food processor with enough white rice flour to make the dough easy to handle. You might want to play with this.
    Sounds interesting. I do not have a food processor... to be honest I figure if I really wanted pel'meni, I'd just make them with wheat flour, but in a small quantity, like a 100 of them or so, so a family eats it in one sitting.

    I still enjoy eating out. I love to go out for sushi. I went to a French restaurant recently and had the filet mignon and a quail. The quail was so good, I bought some at the farmer's market and made it myself! I guess Mexican food is ruined for me, though. And any place that thinks they can charge a couple dollars extra for salmon on your salad and they give you a little bit of salmon crumbles rather than an actual piece of salmon makes me outraged.

    I much prefer my own cooking to going out. I do like to go out for sushi, too, like sbhikes. Primal does change your palate. The only thing I really miss is nachos and once or twice a year I will eat them (homemade, of course).

    I used to binge on candy like peanut m&ms and snickers and now have no desire to ever eat candy ever again. Ice cream... I indulge in Haagen Daz every once in awhile. I've made some really good primal chocolate chip cookies.

    I am such a food snob, now, though. It's all about quality.

    +1 Not just for Chinese food, but for ALL outside food. With possibly the exception of the $$$ and $$$$'s on yelp.

    A bit of a side-bar, but...

    I've always loathed Chinese food. It's forever been my least favorite ethnic cuisine. So, the taste for it hasn't changed much!

    However, I now travel to China 3-4 times per year for anywhere from 2-4 weeks at a time. I end up losing weight because of how much I hate the food there! The worst part is that I don't mind some dishes (rice, grilled rabbit leg, rice noodles with pork) but my Chinese coworkers will always buy us American fast-food (McDonald's, Subway, Papa John's pizza, KFC, Pizza Hut) for lunch, thinking we'd like that. I'd take Chinese food over American fast-food in China! Yuck!

    That's why I lose weight there!
