Raw Weston Price / Meal planning
« on: April 14, 2012, 05:13:57 am »
Does anyone have suggestions for raw menu plan services? I find I have been following, more or less, the Primal diet by AV but it is hard to stay consistent, social situations and family are not onboard, and I'm looking for help with menu plans that are raw mostly but incorporate perhaps some cooking, and true to concepts of AV and/or Weston Price. I am not very organized on my own but want some help with planning, shopping lists, recipes etc on a weekly basis so I can get consistent healthy, efficient meals made for myself and my family. Haven't found anything yet that fits the bill.

Primal Diet / raw yogurt
« on: October 18, 2011, 02:22:50 pm »
I heard AV recommend spitting in milk and culturing at room temp to make yogurt - has your own bacteria doing the pre-digestion that way. I have tried it and sometimes the yogurt is tasty, other times not at all.  Has anyone else tried this and had more consistent results? I'm wondering if a tiny bit of honey added at the start would help the taste, if not too much to act as an inhibitor.

Primal Diet / CLO + butter oil, fermentation
« on: October 18, 2011, 02:10:45 pm »
I had my sister, 50-ish and pretty vegetable-oriented (anti-raw) with recent weight-loss, fatigue and anxiety, convinced to try the Green Pastures CLO + butter oil, and then she had some testing done by some provider that showed she is "sensitive" to dairy and brewer's yeast and egg whites. She now believes it's best to avoid fermented foods, condiments, and food products containing dairy, baker's yeast, and brewer's yeast, hence the Green Pastures CLO + butter oil is also out. She wants to try the Nordic Naturals CLO. Can anyone share any reasoning that would alleviate the concerns about dairy and fermentation, also whether Nordic Naturals would be acceptable alternative to Green Pastures? I did suggest that pasteurization is more likely the problem than the dairy per se, and am also going to mention that AV suggests unheated honey can also cure the enzyme deficiency that causes some to have problems even with raw dairy.

Primal Diet / highest allowable temp for raw cheese
« on: October 18, 2011, 01:16:48 pm »
Does anyone know the maximum temperature cheese can be made at and still be considered raw, according to AV?

Primal Diet / Los Angeles raw dairy
« on: August 11, 2011, 04:53:09 am »
I'm travelling in LA the next few days, can anyone point me toward good raw milk, unsalted cheese and butter from grass-fed cows?

Primal Diet / Raw unsalted cheese from 100% grassfed cows

Does anyone know of a source for this local to the the San Francisco bay area?

Primal Diet / coconut cream
« on: June 18, 2011, 03:39:11 am »
Does anyone have information about coconuts? I was eating a lot of coconut cream we made ourselves from young Thai coconuts bought at Whole Foods, but from what I've read they are probably sprayed with something once they're hulled.  I've also read that coconut palms are not usually sprayed, so the ones in hulls are theoretically safe - although I don't know how to tell if they're overly old?  Has anyone researched this to know where they can be purchased organic or with confidence that they haven't been sprayed? I would love to have the coconut cream back in my regular diet - purchasing it ready-made is prohibitively expensive.

Primal Diet / Organic coconuts

Does anyone have a source for organic coconuts, preferably local to bay area CA?

Primal Diet / Survey re: Kombucha, beet kvass
« on: May 26, 2011, 02:59:09 am »
I'm curious how Primal Diet adherents feel about kombucha and beet kvass?  I was interested in kombucha because it helps my husband stay away from soda, of course the tea is cooked in the process. Beet kvass is raw, although not as appealing to him in that way. Any other fermented foods that you eat or believe to have some value?

Primal Diet / Raw honey
« on: May 18, 2011, 04:15:17 am »
Can anyone recall the temperature above which AV says honey cannot be heaten? Gibson's Golden honey claims their honey sits in a heated jacket before going to the bottling pump. They claim it doesn't go above body temp.

Primal Diet / Chocolate?
« on: February 14, 2011, 05:24:28 am »
In the new products list I got in November, a source for raw cocoa beans is listed.  I understood AV didn't recommend any chocolate at all, instead carob is a substitute.  Does anyone know if he has changed his stance on that?

Primal Diet / Carbs in the a.m.
« on: February 13, 2011, 03:32:23 am »
Aajonus mentioned at a recent talk that carbs shouldn't be eaten until 6 hours after getting up, at which point all the glycogen has been made for the day from pyruvate.  I'm not sure why this is important - and why glycogen made from glucose isn't ok - does anyone have an answer for that?  Also, he recommends a coffee substitute in his book made with hot water, 2-5tbs honey, and 1/2 lemon +/- vanilla extract, and since most people drink coffee in the a.m., I'm wondering how this squares with the first recommendation and would be interested in any thoughts about this.

Primal Diet / egg whites for vision
« on: February 11, 2011, 08:38:09 am »
Curious if anyone has tried egg white washes in the eyes to improve vision?  AV talks about beginning to use the technique in his book.  Has anyone heard updates about it?

Primal Diet / Taste for raw meat
« on: February 11, 2011, 08:33:57 am »
Just curious how people have handled the desire  (or not) to eat raw meat? Aajonus suggests that nuts and other sauces given in his book of recipes are to get one past the cravings for carbs and should in general not be needed after a couple of years on the diet when such cravings are supposedly gone.  I eat all my meat prepared with various of the recipes in his book, and other than occasional small amounts of raw beef don't care to eat the raw meat plain.  How have others dealt with this question? Anyone with more than 2 years on the diet and still using such condiments?

Primal Diet / High Meat technique
« on: August 05, 2010, 06:29:10 am »
In his book AV mentions that if you go away and your raw meat doesn't get aired enough, you resume where you left off when you return.  Has anyone tried this? I have some meat I have been aging since 4/15 but I keep forgetting to air it. Probably only a few of those weeks have seen it aired every 3 - 4 days, instead it probably happens anywhere from every 3-4 days to 1/week or 1/3 weeks. I have tasted 2 bites, the second time about 2 weeks ago, and held my nose to avoid the smell. The texture was pretty unappealing the second time. I'm wondering if I should toss it and start over, assuming I can find a reminder system to remember to air it. Any one experimented with this?
