You know you have gone over the Paleo Cliff when...you put bacon fat in your coffee.

Well if you want the whole egg, just break each into an ice-cube tray, but be prepared to fight to get the egg-cube out after it's frozen. I never tried greasing the trays...that might help. I actually just want the yolk, so I put plastic wrap down on a cookie sheet and put the whiteless yolks on that...as many as will fit, ,then (carefully) set this in the freezer. Once frozen, you can just pop them apart and then I store them in freezer bags. I know it is an extreme measure, but I have two raw in my morning Vitamix shake and I can't bear the idea of going without all winter.

When you start looking for a TOOTHPASTE that doesn't have corn derivatives (sorbitol, xylitol) or other artificial sweeteners. That was my personal jumping off the cliff point. I found that there is only 1 brand (Desert Essences, so far) and fortunately it comes in a variety of flavors. Then you know you've smashed on the rocks when you tell people about your Paleo search for toothpaste and are trying to convince them about how much toothpaste one ingests in a lifetime (and guessing like a fisherman) !
