  1. I've been enjoying reading your menus. It's interesting to see what other people eat! I hope everything goes well with the surgery.

  2. Hope all goes well and like many I will be looking forward to your return. x

  3. Thanks so much Judith and Googleann :)

  4. Good luck to your husband! We will miss you:)

  5. Can your food pics be anymore scrumptious!! Hard to look at them and not feel hungry but I'm fasting.

  6. Hi! I'm a new follower here. I'm looking into primal eating as well, so your menus are really helping me out. =)

  7. Hi There

    Saw your interview it was great. Congrats on your weight lose success. Just started the PB yesterday. Already feeling better. Have some arrhthymia issues and was told that this diet would be beneficial.

  8. I forgot to mention, and this is definately not to frighten you but I too was diagnosed with panic disorder in my 20's. Turned out that I never had that at all. It was a heart issue all along. Again, only telling you this so that you can have that ruled out.


  9. Thanks so much for posting!!!! VERY informative! Sorry for not checking back sooner, but we've had a rough couple husband's best friend was killed by a drunk driver, so it's been tough getting life back to normal. Need to get back on a schedule with food now, because I've been "comfort eating"....from the bakery! Will definitely be using your list for inspiration during the next grocery run! All the best and well-wishes for your dear husband's speedy recovery! -Vicki
