I let it cool on the counter before I put it in the fridge. I think I'm going to go warm some up and take a sip. Glad you told me that so I'll be aware in the future. I got the mac oil online. I know which one you are talking about $ $ I got one much cheaper. Look around. *Netrition carries a reasonably priced brand* I like it a lot--a very light and neutral flavor. Great on salads.

I got the electric one on a shopping channel. I think they are all about the same--same maker, just a different name. Mine is maybe 4-5 quart, has a high and low pressure as well as a slow cook. Best parts are automatic shut off and it's whisper quiet. It's hard to screw up anything in it.

Sooze, I love bone broth. I make it regularly and freeze in canning jars to avoid plastic leeching into it. I just heat it up, add some chopped up scallions, vinegar, hot sauce, and voila - hot and sour soup. Sometimes I add an egg for egg drop soup. Comes out really delicious.

My dog, who is 10 already, has been getting more and more broth lately, too. She loves it and I feel it really helps keep her healthy. I am trying to get her away from store-bought dog food which is full of odd stuff and lots of wheat and corn products, and into eating the way dogs are naturally meant to eat - bones, meat, etc. She adores raw eggs and I try to crack at least one per day (organic) in her food bowl. She also loves raw cauliflower and oranges for some reason, and I allow her to eat them - I figure it is some kind of deficiency she is making up for. So, my Vanilla will soon be a fully Primal dog!

On another note, I bought some avocado oil online, but I can't say I'm crazy about the flavor. I thought it would make a very complimentary part of my salad dressing, but it didn't Next on the list to try - hazelnut oil. I remember buying walnut oil before but it tasted a bit rancid .... Don't know why, these are supposed to keep for quite a while.....Glad to hear macadamia oil tastes good.

Yes! I like to use the fruit essence they have for it. Sometimes fizzy water is so much more refreshing than plain.

Glad you're doing well today! I don't usually count on my UDs anymore, I know from experience what my intake is. And I know you're talking to Dasiey because I am far from goal! lol

I had a small mug of my broth and it was delish! Might make that an afternoon habit.

Yeah--the whole bone thing with dogs-"Oh you mustn't give them bones. They splinter and it will KILL them." Huh? I had a beagle who could swallow a turkey thigh bone whole and not even burp She lived to be 13 YO. My not-so-primal Lhasa ate popcorn and ice cream. He lived to be almost 16 but he could eat a chicken bone in about 3 seconds flat.

Avocado oil is ok...high smoke point. And I have the hazelnut oil. I like it especially with my salads that contain fruit--apples, peaches, etc. And good with sweet potatoes. A little bit goes a long way. Same with the walnut oil. And I keep all my oils in the fridge just to be on the safe side.

My walnut oil says "refrigerate after opening" on the bottle. I've heard it goes rancid pretty quickly at room temperature. I don't go through oil fast enough to let it sit in the pantry.

Pretty good day even though I went out to lunch with friends to a Mexican restaurant.

B-Green smoothie, no coffee cuz I woke up late
S-none
L-salad with grilled chicken, avocado, tomatoes and peppers with oil and vinegar dressing, iced tea
S-1/2 cup Greek yogurt with walnuts and 1 packet stevia
D-Roasted chicken, wilted greens from my garden and leftover Brussels sprouts

May indulge in a single 'tini and have an extra slab o' chicken....pickin' that carcass clean tomorrow and making some more stock.

Hope everyone else is doing well

Went to the park today and walked/jogged for 45 minutes. Broke a sweat. Looking at my schedule for the next week, I may be able to hit the trail at least 4 more days in the next week. Will get out the Kinect and play some golf or tennis

Menu today:
B-Green smoothie with blueberry/half of small banana/handful of spring greens/scoop designer whey,2 coffees with coconut milk
S-none
L-deviled eggs *4 halves*, wing and drumstick of juicy chicken from last night
S-nuts, I think
D-Asian beef soup-shredded beef ribs with my tasty bone broth, mushrooms, carrots, celery, cabbage, cilantro and something else (??? I'll think of it)
dessert-blackberries with whipped coconut cream-may stick it in the freezer for a while

Doing good...looks like everyone else is too

Thanks Everyone for the warm welcome! I have one downfall with my PB eating. I still drink my SF Hawaiian Punch. Man, I just like that little bit of sweet in my water. I do mix one tube of it in a liter of water (not 16.9 oz.). It's really watered down, but I know I still need to give it up. I also have my Full fat greek yogurt at night with berries and nuts. I'll have to try the whipped coconut milk. Do you just whip it like you do whipped cream?

Yes on the coconut milk. Put in fridge and open up and use that thick part on top. Thickness depends on the brand of coconut. Some come out thicker than others. Google it. I like cinnamon in mine

what is it about the 3rd day that gets me?

I guess there could be worse things?

right back on track.

It was cold outside, but I just deliberately spent 15 min. out on my back porch after work. It is one of my decisions for this year to spend time outdoors each day. Between work, commute, and house chores I rarely spend time outside. One of the hazards of modern city life, i guess. It is crazy how little i am in touch with nature. A tiny beginning, for sure, but still on the right path. Will help as one of the pillars to be less depressed as well as following the recommendations of PB.

Hey E! And look at you having quiet time, just like MS says. And yes, you need that vitamin D. In Texas we get overdosed on it most of the year...but today was beautiful and the temp stayed cool. Grateful for it.

Beef soup is pretty good. Out of carrots so I peeled and cubed a bit of butternut squash to give it some color. I'm going to use the rest to make "fries" tomorrow night to go with our steak.

dlebbin! Put down that granola and slowly back away. Go to MDA website and get a paleo granola recipe there

Way to go Betty--Good girl. BUT...quit thinking' about that ... "G" word...granola

That's ambitious. I'm not resolving to spend time outdoors every day until all chance of temperatures in the teens and below is gone. That's probably not until late April! We're expecting more snow tomorrow and unless I can catch a few rays through the windshield while sitting in my car with the heat blasting there will be no sun or nature for me.
