What change to your Paleo diet are you contemplating? Or have you likely already arrived at your life time food choices?

You could always try fermenting them. But if they still give you stomach aches, why add them? There are plenty of safe carbs out there. Sweet potatoes, potatoes, rice, plantains, taro, cassava are a few.

I quit chicken after buying bulk meat (1/4 cow and some pig) for the freezer. I actually just like these better I think.

I have a few things I'm trying to accomplish.

One, I don't eat enough red meat. I was veggie for several years, and still have a slight aversion to the savoriness of steak. I'm making an effort to include it several times a week versus just once a week as I am typically wont to do.

Two, I don't think I eat enough meat, period. I tend to eat tiny portions of it then try to fill up on the side dishes, and it's just not working for me. My sweet tooth is out of control and I think the best way to quell it is to fill up on the good stuff and save the side dishes for that -- something I eat on the side, not as the main course.

Three, I need more fatty fish in my diet. I picked up some wild Alaskan salmon this week at the grocery store and I'm going to try to add it to my weekly rotation. I'm worried I'm not getting enough Omega-3's in my diet, so this should help.

Lastly, I want to reduce my sugar consumption. I've significantly cut down on the amount of added sugars I eat (the exception is those amazing Dark Chocolate Coconut bars by Oskri and dark chocolate in general, yum) but it's still too much. I rely on chocolate and nut butters too much as an added source of fat in my diet, so hopefully increasing my meat consumption takes care of these insane sugar urges.

My diet is constantly evolving. I'm hoping that these changes help improve my life and my overall health, both physically and mentally. :)

I'm gonna buy a grass fed lamb instead of my normal 1/4 grass fed beef to switch things up and try something new...If you mean messing with other factors I'm good to go. I dunno about HC,LC or VLC and all but I eat different amounts each day anyhow. I have days that are near zero carb, then I have days that are about 150g....so I guess I inadvertently mix it up and feel that this is a good thing :)

I'm contemplating removing chicken from my diet, replacing it with more fish.

I just don't feel "healthy" after eating chicken, so I'm going to experiment a little with some issues that Raw fed pet owners have experienced. Sometimes a specific meat protein is an issue with a pet and switching from chicken to turkey can solve any remaining health issues.

We're having cheat days occasionally with gluten-free bread from Udi. I think I've decided that once our bellies and guts are healed up well from being grain-free, it's just fine to have gluten-free buns on hamburgers, or a couple slices of gluten-free bread for grilled cheese. Mind you, just once every two weeks or so. 80/20

Adding bone broths this winter. I live in Santa Fe and it is just too hot in our home to simmer bone broths in the summer, so I eat gelatin every other day or so.

Adding legumes and a cheat day??? It just seems like slow-carb was easier to stay on for me. Too bad legumes give me stomach aches.
