    Candy? what does a sweet-toothed cavemen eat?

    Primal Fuel
    All over the internet I find primal recipes for snack and especially candy (made from coconut, nuts, honey, chocolate, etc.).

    I was wondering do you all eat these things? do they fit into your weight loss diet? and especially what do you eat for snack and candy?

    as this is the recipe area I would like to hear some recipes...

    Surprised at lack of replies!

    As steak and eggs as I am, I still enjoy quite a bit of quality, soy-free dark chocolate. Lately my wife has been making us some Oopsie bread (eggs and cream cheese, it gets fluffy like bread, pretty cool!) and now that my palate is healed of SAD, fruit is the treat it should be. I ate three or four plums the other day and they were amazing.

    And I make kombucha jello.

    I'm sure the Peat crowd has better junk food ideas than me, they do specialize in that field.

    Fruit, dark chocolate. Good organic ice cream very occasionally on workout days.

    Oh, yeah! Almost forgot about quality ice cream. We just moderate it so we end up eating about once a week at most. Because, even if made with great ingredients, it does lack protein and for some people, will disappear like chaff without satisfying.

    Culture, nostalgia, and celebration are parts of life. The purpose of the primal recipes is to acknowledge those without toxic junk casting a shadow over the occasion. But I don't think anyone expects fat loss when preparing and eating them alone. The closest thing to treats I make are coconut milk ice cream and (nongrain) mug cakes.

    If I want a dessert for myself I'll just have a very simple fruit + fat combo
    1) halve a nectarine
    2) fill cavities with macadamia butter
    3) achieve enlightenment

    I don't really have these things. I do sweeten my yogurt 2/3 of the time with xylitol, I eat quite many fruits during summer, but I am no fan of nuts, dried fruits, etc. Winter is coming and I will probably decrease even more the sweet foods ... but I have pikced a lot of raspberries a couple of months ago, I will probably make some home-made jam for winter

    Jelly ... when wild berries are in season, great, otherwise from red grape juice ... sometimes fortified with red wine.

    No need for extra sugar - just get juice and set it with gelatine. Drop in wild berries if they're available.

    I make treats with coconut oil, shred coconut, hemp flour, stevia, cinnamon, raw cacao, coconut flour, eggs... Not always at the same time, but if you did happen to throw those all together and put it in a greased, coconutted cake pan, you'd get a bitchin coffee cake
