    The crazy things people say

    Normal should be real food! I saw something on the news the other day about the "Real Food Fad" -- like it's another fad diet or something!!!

    Which reminds me, this same daughter, that plays hockey 5 days a week in winter, soccer and track in the summer, came home from a field trip and had only eaten a tiny bit of her lunch. I asked her why, and she replied, "Elise's mom says calories make people fat and my meat has a lot of calories." OMG! She's healthy and active, loves salmon and asparagus and veggies. This woman has her freaking out, at age 7, about calories. I was so furious I didn't even know what to say!

    I was researching hockey goalie camps for my daughter, and came across one that offers Paleo lunches during the 1-week camp, plus CrossFit Kids styled workouts!!! It's probably a bit intense for her age (7) but I'm bookmarking them for the future!

    Actually, warm/flat coke or sprite/7 up is a very common thing to give after vomiting. I don't know the science behind it, but oddly enough it does seem to settle the stomach. I'm from the west coast, and my mom always used 7up; my Midwest in-laws swear by coke. I give my kids coconut water, to replace electrolytes. Kind of a more natural pedialyte.

    Almond Flour

    I'm going to make this tonight with what I have on hand: tuna, egg, diced fire-roasted tomatoes, dried chives, dried parsley, s&p. Hopefully it will turn out okay.

    Almond Flour

    I'd say that's fine, since it's a binding agent for the salmon, like you'd use for meatballs or meatloaf/meat muffins. ETA: Robin posted as I was typing, so I'd defer to her experience.

    Whole30 and Five Guys

    I'd be guessing yes. 99% of the bacon out there does.
