I found some tasty fat bomb recipes on Youtube if you search Dr. Eric Berg. I have tried a few and they are pretty good they do not have too many ingredients; so its really easy and they keep you from getting hungry between meals.

Great information to help us with a myriad of food choices. I don't understand them all right now as Heavy Cream and Cream Cheese both sound like some great additions to my life once I can wrap my head around it. I would also like to add mayonnaise back into my life as my tuna fish with just mustard and horseradish is getting boring.

I have no idea what to do with an avocado as I bought two a little while ago and they both went bad before I could use them.

This journey is becoming a full time occupation as first I have had to drop the baggage of malnutrition as taught by medicine and big pharma, wrap my head around High Fat as Low Carb is a no brainer.
Hey skypeace, I promise you that you will get it. It's overwhelming at first. Take your time to read the posts. I had the same problem. I even asked for people's grocery lists...LOL . Guess what? These wonderful people provided me with a list of stuff they normally buy. It's trial and error at first. I ended up throwing a lot of food away. I needed to change the way I shopped as well. Instead of grocery shopping for the week, I shop for several days, and make a 2nd trip during the week. I also invested in Debbie Meyer green bags. Produce lasts a lot longer than keeping them in their original package.

Thanks @alamogirl, for the tips and encouragement.
I have thrown a lot of food away as I cleared out anything with HFCS, and just about anything that was not going to be a part of my lifestyle moving forward.

I do find that I have to shop at least twice a week minimum, but that's okay as grocery shopping is becoming an important life event. Food preparation and consumption have now become an adventure. I am striving to maintain a teachable spirit, not easy but doable.

I also shop multiple times a week. I really can't stock up on perishables or I end up throwing them away. I do stock up on frozen foods, though.

Greens and even a whole cabbage head it really too much for one or two and they can't be saved for long. So I have to eat the same thing for multiple meals in a row. Now that it's colder, making soups with the vegetables does help save the older produce.

People in many European countries shop daily! They have fresh markets that allows them to pick up very fresh food as they head home. We here in the USA need to do more of that....eating FRESH is what I have found to be the hidden gem is LCHF eating. I eat fresh salads every day and many of the chickens and beef I eat are very fresh when I pick them up. The butchers in the store will tell me what is the 'newest' when I ask them.

Good Luck
