    PJAP, count me in when you start that Primal company. Isn't it sad that you get discriminated against for making healthful choices? What has the world come to?!!


    FNW, I SOOOO love the idea of a Primal pre-school. Now, Waldorf schools are a bit like that, aren't they (not sure though)?

      PJAP I am going to wear jeans tomorrow to work in protest!


      My workplace is used to my funny eating habits and whenever we have functions I bring my own food or don’t eat, last birthday morning tea I was eating almond butter out of the jar while everyone else was scoffing party pies and sausage rolls.


      If someone does question me about what I am eating and why,I ask them do they really want to know and then tell them the truth is I cannot tolerate junk food due to candida that is mainly why I am primal, so maybe you need to get a similar answer to make life a bit easier for you.

        I also like that quote, Diana! Too bad many people's tats just tell the world that they are a cartoon clown. Alas.


        If anyone starts a Primal buisness, I'm in... um... so long as I can telecommute from Florida...

          Miriam, I was thinking that "I'm allergic to vegetable oil" would be a little white lie that shuts people up. I could tell them "yeah, it's like a peanut allergy only worse"

          It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

            I'm thinking I would say I've developed food intolerances and I'm trying to see what is causing them by eliminating processed/certain foods.


            @Grandma, that wd eliminate most processed foods, I should try that.

              Luckily, I don't have to lie about it. I do have a food intolerance. Heh. Good luck, everyone else!

                maba I'm not sure about Waldorf but I think the PB would easily fit in with the Montessori way... I REALLY want to go through Montessori training but it's pretty pricey. Maybe someday, and I can do a Primal Montessori school. haha.

                Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

                  Heck, let's just go with a Primal Community, like Mormons, but without the Religion.


                  Community Garden, Community Cows and Chickens.


                  Heck, the government will actually fund such a community if you have some sort of 'agricultural' crop.


                  Then, we can build our houses from adobe (it's a 'new', economical and inexpensive way to build a home and is even approved by building code). The land would be supplied by the government and we'd produce, oh, let's see, Bamboo! Yeah. It's easy to grow, sustainable and creates quite the income!

                    When I have kids they are definitely going to Montessori schools (well, I hope anyway...depends on the cost in the area I suppose). FNW you can run the school, and SF you can find the perfect spot for our co-op! Back to basics, who needs a boss anyway?? (As I enjoy my lunch break...

                      SassaFrass - strawbale houses are gorgeous and super efficient, and conducive to community "barn raising" events.... perfect for that sort of situation.

                        PJAP: look! Mark posted a workout for you today ;-)


                        what a great way to vent your frustrations...

                          That's it! Strawbale houses. My mom investigated into those and found that you can have a 'class' come and build yours for free, while you pay for the materials.

                              @SerialSinner, often thought of a move. Pittsburgh isn't a very forward thinking city. I wish I had a sledgehammer to do Mark's workout today! Former "boss" called and left me a pretty shitty message stating that she is expecting a letter of resignation. Um, you let me go... I am assuming that they are now worried about a possible lawsuit. I'm over it. I have my Master's, over a decade of experience in school administration, and plenty of street cred to go with it. I won't sacrifice myself just because of my eating habits or this:

                                hannahc, you can always homeschool if the Montessori schools are too expensive.


                                Or do what my sister did and ask the school if you can work there in exchange for reduced/free tuition for your kid(s). She went in hoping for some sort of "anything" job (secretary or whatever) and ended up getting hired as the art teacher. I think she's been there 4-5 years now and she loves her job. (Her degree is in art and art history.)
