Frozen, no.

But take it out and leave it in the sink the night before. If its a small chicken it will be thawed in the morning. If its just you, try a little Cornish game hen.

Put it in the crock pot with a can of chicken broth. Some cut up carrots, green beans, corn, and 1/4 cup of rice. Leave it on low.

When you come home, take the chicken out and lay it on a cutting board to separate it from the bones. I end up having to use a combination of a ladle and tongs to get it out!

Sometimes it turns into a casserole in there, but whatever!

Once you get started you'll feel more comfortable with it, and cooking isn't so scary. You don't have to be a gourmet, just cook to eat! And if you don't over do the butter and cream its much healthier!

have you tried these??

Flourless Protein Pancake Recipe | Blogilates



those meals sound hard.

I'm lazy chef.
Oh I don't do soy. I have made almond and coconut flour pancakes. The ones with almond flour are the best and they are super filling!!!

They are not hard. Just different if you are not used to cooking with non-flour flour

Murrcat...or any one else looking to take this style of eating up...it is not hard, as the others have very correctly pointed out!

My brekkie: yogourt, granola and dates, or eggs and bacon (yay, weekends!)
lunch: some boiled eggs, a bit of ham, a handful of nuts. Snack, some gluten-free crackers. Or, veg and some meat, like a bit of left-over chicken breast.
Dinner: steak and veg, either fresh raw veg with home-made dip, or else chicken curry with rice, or meat, veg and potato, or...lol! Possibilities are endless there are also gluten-free noodles, like Mrs. Leeper's rice noodles. Makes cooking pasta a breeze and it is delish! Or, for pancakes, try Pam's all-natural pancake mix. Gluten free and awesome! There are also Mary's Crackers, and if you shop the dairy case, you will find a cream cheese called "It's better than cream cheese!" natural cream cheese spread (made from soya etc.) so there are so many choices. You can make most meals in 1/2 hour or less and there are loads of cookbooks and websites devoted to this....

Just buy real foodstuffs, and don't buy any processed foods. Easy!

Not unless it happens to be low/lower carb. A gluten free high carb diet will keep the weight on if you're a carb gainer.

That's what I meant, but I'm at work and can't type novels

But a lot of people go gluten free to lose weight not BC of health reasons and they end up gaining weight. Because they're eating higher carb content

Just did my first "primal" grocery shop. I get a LOT of cravings so I'm a bit nervous about the transition period, but overall I am very excited to see what changes my body goes through inside and outside.

^^How exciting!!! I hope you like it!

To avoid cravings, eat more protein and fats and reduce your carb intake. I don't eat any sugar or carbs in the mornings. Stevia and other sugar replacements (Just Like Sugar, Whey low) are my best friends. I don't know about you, but when I eat bread, pastries, cookies etc, I want more bready things.

My breakfast everyday for the last 3 years had been steel cut oats with yogurt and a piece of fruit. Trying to find ways to switch it up.

I'm going no carb aside from fruit/veg. Also intensely upped my water intake as I was getting nowhere near enough water.
Marks Daily Apple has been a great source of info and I've checked out a lot of recipes in advance so that I can stock my cupboard with the basic replacements.
This morning I made little omelette muffins that were AMAZING! Yield was 6 and I'm told they freeze well.

I only have done one day so far but I can't lie and say I haven't already noticed a difference! My diet before was very carby because it's the easiest and quickest, or so I thought. I didn't have my usual nap in the afternoon when the kiddies were sleeping, and I sprung out of bed this morning and cleaned my kitchen!? NEVER would that happen. I'm excited to see how my body changes over the next few weeks.

ETA: Why do I feel like sweeteners are not part of primal eating..? Can you enlighten me on that coily?

Those are not sweeteners. They are natural sugar replacements. Artificial sweeteners (aspartame, splenda, sweet and low etc) are not part of primal eating (and frankly shouldn't be part of anyones diet anywhow!).

Stevia and Just Like Sugar have no calories or carbs and has no glycemic impact, both completely natural. Whey low has 75% less carbs than regular sugar, tastes just as sweet and has much lower glycemic impact than sugar.

I'm glad you are noticing a difference with your new diet. It really does make a big difference. I have more energy, sleep better, eat better, faster metabolism, no cravings or hunger. It's amazing. I'm not strictly paleo all the time, but what I do works for me--and I don't feel bad about eating ice cream or pastries once in a while (or even bread!). This is the only way the weight has come off for me and I've tried everything under the sun. To be on a "diet" and not have constant hunger is like heaven.

What I LOVE the best is that I can eat all the bacon I want LOL. Eggs, bacon and cheese in the morning. I LIVE for that. Or almond flour pancakes with strawberry jam. OMG...now I'm hungry. All I need is a bread maker and I can make my own bread with almond and coconut flour for a super paleo sandwich!

Totally, the key is that I don't feel constant hunger.
It's about training your body to go through periods of not eating or period of "ample supply".
I was so focused in previous styles of eating (I don't say diet as I see primal as a lifestyle) of every two hours fueling my body etc. and I never noticed much of a difference in my weight. I'm only looking to drop 7-8 pounds or so, and I think this Might be the way for my body.
I'm a nanny and normally when I feed the kiddos lunch I'm ravenous and that's when I end up eating the most junk, whatever they haven't eaten, plus I raid the pantry!
I'm struggling with sugar cravings but I'm replacing with fruit. I know it's not the BEST route, but my previous sugar cravings were filled with ice cream, donuts, cookies, candy. I'm hoping to notice an initial difference with the fruit and then when I plateau I'll try to curb it.
