So far, so good; no cravings even! (but it is only Day 4...)

Wow! You look quite different out of snowbarding gear!

I'm trying to become less of a Zone freak, lol! I've run out of veggies to sautee and eggs, so I may just try eating turkey sausage for breakfast tomorrow and a piece of fruit and see how that does...

I am used to salted peanut butter. I was just buying the Smuckers natural stuff in a jar, and it has salt, have yet to try the grind-it-yourself stuff at the natural food store. Bad memories of having to force it down in childhood, lol. I get what you mean about the almond butter; it's not as smooth/ stirrable as peanut butter. I tried adding it to my oatmeal once, and just ended up with chunks of almond butter.

Or, for another treat you could melt some extra dark chocolate with a little coconut oil, coconut flakes etc. and then freeze it to firm it up.
Paleo ice cream?? I must investigate! I tossed some coconut flakes with some slightly thawed cherries as one of my carb blocks for dinner last night - quite tasty! But ice cream and sorbet sound waaay better. I will definitely add coconut milk to my grocery list. Thanks!
