    Hi Laura, Are you using sweet potatoes as carbs? With all the squashes & root veggies around at this time of year, seems like it would be easy to get more carbs without grains. Thanks and enjoying learning through your experiences. Going to try to sell my husband on the primal diet...he's a carbo eater, but has lots of chronic conditions, including allergies, high BP, etc and he is much too young for all that!

    Thanks, Donna! I wish and wish and wish he would eat sweet potatoes! Ryan and I eat them probably 5 times a week. We make hash and fry them. Both ways are excellent, our neighbors and other non-primal friends love them...but not Colson. He tries them and doesn't like them. He isn't a squash eater either. I grind it up put it in soups, and that is the best I can do. He doesn't even like butternut squash, which is heaven to me!

    Good luck with your husband. It is only 30 days...almost no time in his lifespan (like 0.02 percent if I remember the calculation correctly, assuming he lives to 75). It will change his life forever! Although he will feel lousy for a bit due to detox.

    give Colson time...lots. My kids did not like sweet potatoes for a really long time (they did like them as babies) But now, that is what my 11 y.o. asks for! Yes, he puts lots of butter on them, but he likes them!

    This is interesting Laura, our kids only like sweet potatoes baked with LOADS of our raw butter on top OR fried hash sweet taters made in ghee with eggs for breakfast. They will not eat them any other way. If they have an option for other "normal" taters- the sweet ones are OUT. We love butternut squash muffins though and they suck those down like candy! Perhaps they only need sweet taters as babies and then as adults? In between there must be something else they need more of. Still trying to figure out what that would be... Peace-
