It's a texture thing. If I get a big hunk of fat, or even a little bit of fat, on a steak I have to spit the bite out. I absolutely can't stand the feel of it in my mouth- can't chew it, and definitely can't swallow it. I've been trying to... (more)
I have a 19 year old son who is a moderately-severe autistic. He has that standard autism stims, though doesn't typically express with self-abusive or aggressive behaviours. He is very empathetic (which makes me wonder about his diagnosis, but... (more)
Hello! I just have a little question or two, if anyone may have some ideas. I consume no sugar, grains, legumes, alcohol, caffeine. The problem: Peas (when I had just started primal and found out they were a no-no) Brusselsprouts, Chocolate +... (more)

I'm 7 weeks pregnant, and I've been paleo for about a year and half. Pretty strict about it too, I very rarely cheated. Well now that I'm pregnant, meat is about the most disgusting thing I've ever seen, and cooking smells make me gag. I can force... (more)

It's weird for me anyway. No, I'm not pregnant. Anyway, the problem is that I have issues with both eggs and casein, so eggs are out. This leaves me with vegan fare, and all the paleo stuff is inadequate in protein. I know some people are good... (more)
Have you tried plainer, less, or differently seasoned meat? I find it easier to eat meat everyday if it's completely unseasoned. It feels more natural and is better tasting, to me at least. :)
I have been eating at least 0.5 lb of meat from various sources (fish, poultry, beef, pork, organs, etc.) everyday for the last 10 months. Now I can't stand the smell or even the thought of eating meat. I can only stomach cooked vegetables and... (more)
