Yeah, Laura's good for some awesome ideas for recipes!! Now I'm actually kind of my dark chocolate this weekend, or make one of her dessert suggestions...

Peanuts aren't considered a Paleo item so peanut butter is out and the next most commonly available nut butter is almond butter. I'm doing loose Paleo so I could allow it under that definition, but since I'm using this 30 days in Paleo as a form of an elimination diet to determine any food sensitivities, and peanuts are one of the most common food allergens, I cut it out. And right now, I'm missing it!!! I'm certain it's the saltiness that I miss. It's not that almond butter is less filling/satisfying appetite-wise. At least I don't think so!
