Hello JUSTBIRDY,

Do you have a specific recipe to make your sauerkraut? I love it and can eat it forever. I also really kimchey (?Sp) but I do have a recipe for that.

Thanks for the input on keytones. I did see on a news clip that one man with Alzheimer was improving with the use of coconut oil, because of the excess amount of keytones it was supplying to his brain. Had you heard anything like that? I can't remember the source but if I come across it I will post it. Thanks for the help. Julia

ketones are just another type of fuel for your body, like glucose is. Many of our cells will run on both. Some prefer ketones to glucose. We need glucose for our brains, but we don't need to eat carbs to get them. Sometimes (Alzheimer's, epilepsy, kidney failure) ketones are preferred over carbs, and ketogenic diets are recommended. Yes, even for kidney failure!!! Actual clinical studies have shown that most people on low carb diets do not greatly increase their protein consumption. Since their level of eating changes due to reduced hunger, and since they are low carb, the percentage of protein goes up, but the actual amount of grams is about the same.
Ketogenic diets are now a preferred treatment for people with kidney disease. If you have kidney disease, you should check with your doctor on what to eat. It will still probably be on the low protein side of things.
The argument many nutritionists use against low carb is a fake argument. Low carb means low carb, not high protein. Personally, I do lower carb, lowish protein and higher fat. They also confuse ketosis with ketoacidosis, which to me is sort of like confusing the hydrogen in water with a hydrogen bomb lol.

I find the book very exciting. It has so much information that I am breaking it down into smaller parts. I am trying to learn all about Ketones...I always thought they were bad and hurt your kidneys. So much to learn and so little time....:)

Currently I am making my pancakes out of buckwheat and flax seeds. I did buy some coconut flour and oil today. Drat, forgot the almond flour. I grind my won buckwheat and flax seeds so everything is fresh when I make it.

I just love this new style of eating. I also eat tons of salads and raw veggies (either diced or grated) and also include weeds from my (untreated yard) like dandelion and plantain so far.

Any additional info that anyone would care to add I would gratefully appreciate it. I am ready to learn and apply knowledge about this new lifestyle. Thanks for the help so far. Julia

I just got that book today! I'm excited to start making fermented things and good broths.

You know, honey's chock full of magical, good stuff, and if you're not diabetic, then some special sweets with this natural thing would be part of a happy life I'd think. Honey and fruits have been something we humans have gone after for many moons. I'm not aware of a recipe, yet. I know the almond pancakes in Everyday Paleo depend upon apples and cinnamon to lend the sweetness and association with sweetness, respectively.

Hey Birdy,

Is there any sugar in those pancakes? Honey is considered ok in moderation, isn't it? Do you have a recipe for them, or know when I can find the recipe?

Thanks. Julia

Welcome! I hope you will try some pancakes made with almond and coconut flour. They are pretty good!

Greetings,

I am new here. I have heard of the Primal and Paleo diets but I have not gone as far as to study either one yet. From what I have read though, it sounds as the Primal lifestyle is more towards my liking. I just bought Gedgaudas's book Primal Body, Primal Mind, and I look forward to hearing what she has to say.

I look forward to getting whole foods as my friend with the co-op will forage for watercress, morel mushrooms, nettles, Jerusalem artichokes, edible flowers, and numerous wild plants. I am even invited to fish and forage at their farm as well.

I am excited about learning more from this team.

I am really leery of buying anything, food-wise, from large corporates like WalMart, etc. as they have been using pink slime in their meats for some time now. I trust that they have the bottom line dollar for them, in their best interest... not me buying healthy food from them. I bought coconut oil from the health food store, but thought the price was jacked really high. I have found a mom & pop bulk supply store near by and buy reputable brand oil through them. I guess you just have to do your research...but hey, isn't that just like foraging? :)

I don't think I am going to be able to eliminate all grains from my diet. I love buckwheat, especially in pancakes (without any wheat product) with true Maple syrup. So I may continue with those, but only sparingly. I still have a horrible sweet tooth and I hope that will subside as I continue on eliminating bad carbs from my diet. I cannot believe that our ancestors didn't relish finding a bee hive every now and then so I am letting myself have the pleasure of a little honey in my salad dressings, etc., just moderately, of course.

I am so excited to have found this team and prepared to learn about this new lifestyle I am embarking upon. WooHoo!!!!

I got the Lou Ana oil at a local supermarket, but I hear they carry it at Walmart for a reasonable price.

Wow, butter is cheaper than coconut oil? I just bought a HUGE container of coconut oil, less than half the price of butter.

That's the only thing I am following. I am not doing any paleo or other sort of program. I think hubby and myself are still kind of easing into it. We do eat grains, and he is not excited about soaking or sourdough. Some things are out of our budget, like coconut oil, so we use butter and olive oil.
We just do the best we can with what we can afford.
