    Dairy cravings anyone?

    Primal Fuel
    Recently developed a taste for full fat dairy, would like to restrict it as I don't think it's ideal for me to consume, was wondering whether anyone else has had this on a PB diet - ie getting cravings for cream /yoghurt etc, and did you find a good alternative? I've upped my starches for a while which seems to help, but the whole luxury of double cream over some bananas is something I'm struggling to give up.

    Love dairy, too. I eat low fat quark (has a good amount of protein:12g/100g) and pour in some sparkling water or pure whey drink, that makes it smooth and creamy but doesn't contain so much (not really healthy) fat - which I add with chia seeds, nuts or creamy almond butter or honey & cinamon. Here you can also add your banana to make it a good post workout snack.

    Not ideal in what way? It sounds like the high calorie aspect of it concerns you?

    For at least a year I enjoyed the heck out of berries and yogurt for breakfast every morning. It was a lot of berries and only 1/2C yogurt. I hadn't really thought about it until I read your post, but about the time I switched from 1/2C 2% milk to 2T heavy cream in my morning coffee, I started to prefer dinner leftovers for breakfast to the yogurt and berries. Hmm...

    I also use the heavy cream in dinner cooking once a week or so (same for cheese) and for primalish desserts about as often. Over bananas sounds delish! But I have a beer habit I haven't given up, so I restrict desserts to just a bit of something rich and sweet. I will say that so long as I maintain a weight I'm happy with, I am pretty relaxed about treating myself to things I enjoy, primal or not. I have noticed that as months pass by, I care less and less about those "dangerous" foods I used to crave. I tell myself I'm on a 10 year plan to the primal pinnacle, lol.

    Why eat starches over double cream on banana, the later sounds both more delicious and more nutritious?

    I use full fat milk in my tea multiple times a day and snack on cheese regularly. I also use both in my breakfast omelettes, cooked in butter. I would rather have cream than yoghurt personally, but I don't crave it as long as there is cheese in the fridge

    I am maintaining a healthy but not skinny weight, I would have to cut these items back drastically if I were aiming for skinny but it's not worth it to me.

    So, basically I am a dairy lover, alternatives like coconut oil just do NOT do it for me. Sorry.

    Dairy is my caloric splurge mostly. A trip to a foo foo cheese purveyor, and I'm in heaven. Other than that, butter, grated parmesan, and 2% cottage cheese are the dairy products I eat on a regular basis.

    I find I crave cream or even butter when I'm not eating enough fat.

    We go through 3L of cream a week.....

    What kind of carbs are you eating that could replace tasty cream?
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
