We do some dairy, and I am having broccoli cheese soup today for lunch made with heavy cream and a potato blended into the base to thicken it. I hope it works LOL
Do you know that they sell potato starch in the organic section at Kroger that is supposed to be used as a soup thickener?

I totally didn't, but I will have to check Fred Meyer the next time I am in there.

I totally spaced doing a meal plan. Tonight we are having Italian sausage, peppers & onions if it still sounds good by the time dinner rolls around. Otherwise, Hamburgers or Chicken Salads.

Re: Plaleo/Primal Chat October, November & December

We eat dairy to, but limited to about 3 servings a week and onky cheese and heavy cream. We do very limited starchy veggies (mainly just eat carrots, no potatoes or most squash). The kids drink almond milk, and cow milk occasionally for a treat. I stick to iced tea, water and too much diet pop!

Last night we had bunless burgers, salad with homemade dressing, greenbeans
Tonight we are having lemon pepper chicken breasts, salad and broccolli
Tomorrow im roasting a turkey with some kind of veggies...not sure what yet.


I eat leftovers for breakfast and lunch, sometimes eggs for breakfast. The kids have eggs or fruit. Dh usually goes through mcds, lol! We snack on fruit and raw veggies, and alot of nuts.

Re: Plaleo/Primal Chat October, November & December

Not doing well right now as far as Primal living goes. I found out that we are expecting a new little one at the beginning of August, and my aversions and cravings are killing me.

My food-related goals this week are:
Stay out of Starbucks
Eat more fruits and veggies
Stop eating loads of cheese and chocolate
Get over my aversion to the smell of cooking meat, or at least learn to ignore it.

Re: Plaleo/Primal Chat October, November & December

I was thinking about you yesterday. I think if it were me, I would not worry so much about the cheese/dairy consumption, if it agrees with you right now. Get the best quality you can, and be thankful that at least it has protein and fat. What is your Starbucks drink of choice? Would you be happy with one of their teas? What about getting some really good tea to make at home? Can you use chocolate as sort of a reward for sticking to your other goals, and limit it to a couple of squares per day?

What *does* sit well with you right now? Can you eat eggs? How about a salad or a smoothie? Soups?

Are you craving carbs? Would you be satisfied with something like coconut flour pancakes or muffins? How about some baked sweet potatoes, or boiled, mashed sweet potatoes with cinnamon and maple syrup? Even mashed red potatoes with heavy cream and butter might be a better choice than eating lots of chocolate and drinking Starbucks.

Can you tolerate any meats? Could you make a pot roast with lots of veggies? If it is the smell of the meat cooking, could you put it in the crockpot and let it cook all day long in the garage?

First off,Congratulations!!!!

Secondly, I'd figure out what I could tolerate, and roll with it through the first trimester, and then focus on getting "stricter" later on. You don't want to firce yourself to eat stuff that would make you puke, KWIM? What are some things you *can* tolerate, and I'll look thru my recipes to see what I can help with!!!
