You've got me there.
2 blocks (or 4) of fat from Ice Cream is definitely a chart topper!

Re: Practical carbs on Zone

Instead of peanut butter try out some cashew nut butter or almond butter. I use to get the cashew nut butter at Whole Wallet but found that its cheaper and just as good at Trader Joes...yum!

Re: Practical carbs on Zone

Some of my staples in the carb department, that are somewhat portable -
-Baby Carrots
-Natural apple sauce (UNSWEETENED)
-Yogurt (check the nutrition info, they vary greatly from brand to brand)
-Whole Wheat bread (I know it's not super zone/insulin friendly, but it works in a pinch)

Matt, I live in a county in California where there are about 5 farmer's markets per square mile. No but really, in any event, there is always nastiness in everything, yes even organic. But my contention is the farmers around where I live I have met with all I buy from and I trust them that there isn't crap in their organic food. For the last month I've dropped lettuce in favor of spinach for better fiber/vitamin content.
