Thanks for the replies! I was sitting there thinking: a) I don't need to start a debate about diet with this nice, young doc (he's only mentioning it in passing, not preaching) and b) I"D RATHER BE THE LION! :LOL
Next time we go (which could be over a year) I'll try to have some 'elevator blurbs' about primal ready. :) I had trouble today multitasking with my two boys acting all over the place.
DS1 eats lots of meats, veg and fruit, but he does enjoy soaked, fatty oatmeal so I'm not sure if I should add that back in.
He just doesn't eat much on a typical day...and then occasionally he wants seconds or thirds of scrambled eggs or boiled eggs, etc to the point where we think: holy, moly, he just ate 7-8 eggs! Anyway, I've always thought that since he's not *typically* a big eater, what he does eat should be full of nutrition. But maybe he's not a big eater b/c I'm not serving what appeals to him. *sigh* welcome to my pity party :lol
Brainstorming about adding fat:
1) smoothie - I've been making smoothies lately and putting in farm eggs and/or avocado for protein, greens, and enough fruit to make it taste good to him. I'll experiment with adding coconut oil, but he's not hip on the flavor of the Virgin, so I might try the TT expellar pressed.
2) butter - He loves Kerrygold butter, but it is pretty strongly tied to sourdough for him. He might eat a slice, but would probably be all over butter balls if I made them sweet.
3) butter balls - recipe???
4) avocado - any kid-fancy ideas? he used to eat them with a spoon and sea salt, but hasn't been interested lately
5) nuts - I make baked goods, etc with almond flour and we've been sticking pecans in dates, but he doesn't seem to eat many out of hand (me on the other hand.... :drool)
Thanks for listening!
