My husband and daughter are in various degrees of not-so-voluntary primal because I am primal and I do almost all cooking and shopping so that helps. I haven't thrown out all non-primal stuff and I do make some white potatoes and rice a few times a week, but like Jules Winfield said in Pulp Fiction, "My girlfriend's a vegetarian which pretty much makes me a vegetarian." I'm primal so it pretty much makes them primal. Making a few primal treats hasn't hurt. Sunday it was chocolate coffee "donuts". I also made some snickerdoodles last week. I think my willingness to put bacon in almost every vegetable I cook hasn't hurt at all I use it more for a garnish and a bit of flavor rather than eating it by the pound. When trying to convert the resistant, bacon is your friend, as far as I'm concerned! I think the key is to be somewhat flexible, refrain from getting overly dogmatic and acting like a reverse vegan, make some good tasting food and be patient. I am noticing my daughter trying lots of vegetables she didn't like or wouldn't try before. This week, she's eaten butternut squash, cabbage, and summer squash/zucchini. That wouldn't have happened before. Good luck!
