    Sugar might be good too then... It's fairly benign.

    Now you are talking, that is just about my favorite! I'm glad to hear you two confirming what I'd been wanting, sugar of course!
    There's a recipe I got from Derp's journal a while back that I've been wanting to try :
    Episode 191 - Lemon Gummy Squares - Healthy Living - YouTube

    Sugar or eggs? Sugar would be more fun, that's for sure. From I've read the way to reintroduce a food is to have a little twice a day for 2 days and monitor reactions.

    That gummy recipe is great, best one I've seen for sure. I tried a few other methods early on and was disappointed. I've made 4 or 5 batches since I started using the recipe in that video (well, almost the same, I do use honey in them sometimes), all have turned out much better.

    Only minor problem I seem to have is with too much foam on the top sometimes, which makes a weird sort of extra-rubbery layer if it gets too thick. Not sure what causes it, it doesn't always happen when I make them.

Allergies are slightly better, but I see no improvement in the Hash's; my temperature was 96.7 yesterday and I have no energy to work out. I'm on thyroid meds and progesterone and the doctor is monitoring my hormones.

    Since I am about to reintroduce foods I eliminated during the protocol which do you think would be the most beneficial to add?
    Stick with it. I used to have chronic hay fever and allergies to pets, dust, certain foods. Now I get none of it, I have a dog now. I really think allergies are a symptom of low metabolism.

    I think she means stick with peat bc she mentioned slow metabolism.

    Okay, the slow metabolism and the allergy connection makes a lot of sense to me. Over the years I've seen several acupuncturists for allergies, some helped to alleviate my symptoms (most didn't) but they all said that my body was "cold and damp" and the goal was to get it warmer. From what I understand the approach in Chinese medicine is to get the body healthy so it can tolerate stimuli as opposed to western medicine where the approach is if you are allergic to something then you need to avoid it. If eating Peat style could help my allergies and thyroid I would be so pleased.

    For me my hives got much better since I cut out grains and seed oils. That was my initial reason for going primal (and if i lose some weight... Great... Turned out I didn't really lose much but gained some muscle). Now with more peat implementations I still avoid grains (rice, etc) as much as I can.

    I get hive attacks now after a few days of eating out at restaurants. I am allergic to everything in life... Cat dander, cockroaches, dustmites, cedar pollen, st Augustine grass (one of the 2 most comment lawn grasses), pecan pollen, mold, etc etc etc. I think I have had less than 5 moderate to serious hives cases in the past year.
