    I was listening to a balanced bites podcast about it and yeah you definitely have to check its not the beer by-product one. Diane did mention a supplier, maybe google.

    Fresh fruit is ok, 1-2 pices a day, pref with meals, not as a snack.
    But re-creating a baked muffin with paleo ingredients isn't.

    Surely Ireland, the home of Kerrygold and where (primarily) grass-fed beef is the norm.
    Sarah Fragoso's recent trip to Hawii sounded pretty awesome to me!
    Will get daydreaming on this...

    Hmmm have to say it's not about the ritual for me, it's more the relaxing effects of the actual alcohol, typically when I sit down after a day when the kids have been wrecking my head! So fizzy water just doesn't cut it let's just hope for angelic behaviour for another 29.5 days huh?

    Just found out this evening, to much effing & blinding, that Shwartz five spice seasoning #1 ingredient - sugar, last ingredient vegetable oil. God forbid it would actually be you know a blend of 5 spices!!! So my chinese style omlette wasn't chinese-y at all, oh well it was still tasty.

    Derval got a reaction from marthab in Day 30...the story & the stats   
    I am so proud of myself for doing this I feel great and have noticed lots of small changes in my change from a primal diet to W30. My facial lines seem lessened...or maybe I'm just frowning less When I brush my teeth there is no longer any bleeding. I no longer run to the kettle (for a cup of instant coffee!) and the chcolate cupboard (even if it was only 20g of 70-85%) when the kids are bugging me. And I haven't had a hangover in a month (I have found the cleaner my diet has become the worse alcohol effects me)
    I did all my measurements this morning and I can happily report the following
    weight 125>120.6 lbs (new bmi 21.4, I'm 5'3)
    Body Fat > -2%
    Bust - down 1inch
    Belly - down 1 inch
    Hips - down three quarters inch
    I started my weight loss & fitness journey back in the summer of 09 and I have come a long way baby. But I know going fwd that the paleo life is the one for me.
