    It would almost be worth getting a Facebook account to read that. If you don't have a journal here at MDA (I looked but didn't see one for you), please feel very welcome to post in Bitchapalooza anytime, especially about foods most of us here haven't tried.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

        Hee hee hee!! Gwamma, we TRIED to warn you...!! And I used to commute into that (by bus and train) every day...

        Glad that you posted - I was worried about you three getting out of there with your nerves intact. It can be overwhelming for folks, even those who THINK they live in a big city. NYC is simply a thing unto itself, as you now know.

        Get the car returned okay yet??

          I think I read once that if you leave a stick of butter and a stick of margarine outside overnight, in the morning, the butter will be pretty much demolished by small animals and bugs, but the margarine will be relatively whole. That makes me smile.

          At about 4pm yesterday, I noticed something. No pain or even the slightest bit of nausea. Methinks this bone broth stuff, in addition to being yummy, may be a magic elixer of some kind. It was pretty profound, actually. I don’t have a lot of experience with chronic pain or nausea, so it was like having a veil lifted.

          Amazingly, yesterday I was reading a copy of Marie Claire and it had an article on the benefits of IF-ing! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Pages and pages of *ahem* fashion, and then way back in the back of the magazine, the article. And they pretty much got it right. They mostly talked about 5:2 and the Up Day Down Day methods, but they also mentioned eating “only” one or two meals per day. The only way they just slightly ruined the article? A picture of a painfully skinny woman (pointy elbows, etc.), scarfing on a slice of pizza. Haha. Still and all, it was a pretty good article for a fashion magazine.

          I was one of those weirdoes who wasn’t pretending to like nonfat milk better. I like the taste of milk, just not how whole milk coats my tongue.

          Yesterday’s food: A few mugs of bone broth, some rice made in bone broth, and some coconut amions. And of course a couple of glasses of ACV water with some ginger.

          .
          Joanie, I always preferred skim milk, too. I am retraining my taste buds now.

          I didn't like butter either, but never bought the line that margarine could possibly be better for you. I used it for a while though because it was easier to spread thinly.

          I do agree that bone broth is possibly miraculous. This week I made a mixture of pork and chicken broth, incorporated it into a pumpkin soup that I was making for my ill friend. She loved it and now wants to know what was in it.

          • We have all that nonsense in the uk too. They sell us fructose syrup as a healthy, natural component of cereal bars, sweeteners and all sorts. Free range chickens just get to walk around in circles in a yard and salmon are fed on vegetable based protein. Our healthy option menus and food are often the opposite. I like your rant and hope you continue to rage against the machine!

              OMG Gwamma, I can just imagine! I would never drive in Manhattan. I even hated driving in San Francisco which is way smaller, but almost as dense.

              I had a similar thing happen many years ago. Fortunately I saw the toll booth in the distance and a split second later saw something that said something like "Last exit before toll," and I figured I didn't care where it took me as long as it wasn't to the city. I slammed on my signal light and wouldn't move until people let me over to the exit. LOL

              Crabcakes I once read that with eight million people living in Manhattan, the number of people actually in the city doubles once the work day starts (or the stock exchange opens, I can't remember which).

              Good on you for introducing her to bone broth. I didn't use margarine, but I was foolish enough to use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter for awhile. What was I thinking?

              Welcome, MaceyUK! Yes, I pretty much think the UK, US, and Canada have to be diligent about the false/misleading statements made about the food they buy. I haven't read as much about Australia, so I don't know if it's as bad there.

                • Oatmeal in the morning makes me sleepy for the rest of the day. Oatmeal in the evening makes me curl up into a contented ball and have warm fuzzy dreams. But since going Primal, I haven't had any. My sleep was still disordered, oatmeal or no, pre-Primal. On Primal, I wake up every morning just before dawn, no alarm clock. That started shortly after my big carb flu ended.

                  I like a short glass of buttermilk in the morning.

                  • Lamb, oh yessssssssss. Love, love love it.

                    But 57 lb per person?? That sounds a lot even for here. Is that an annual consumption, I suppose would only be 1 lb a week or half a kilo. But that would be 2kg per family, so ... I still think it sounds a lot.

                    • If my hubby liked lamb, I'd eat it several times a week. As it is, I probably eat a pound of lamb every two weeks, so that puts me at 26 pounds a year.

                        Since my teens, I've never really been a good sleeper. And after my mother died, I became a binge drinker for awhile and that really effed me up. I don't think I've ever had buttermilk in anything except pancakes.

                        I'm learning to love it also - it's gamey, but it's a different gamey than say, venison, which though I've tried it a few times, even at a restaurant that was a wild game restaurant, I never could get past. And yesterday, after not having had meat for four or five days, it was absolutely delicious.

                        I'm working up to once a week. I've been treating it like it was gold, so this last US Wellness order, I got three pounds of it ground. Since I usually order from them about once a month, I'm getting close. You and me, babe - bringing up the national average.

                          • Lamb has to be my fav. I love it cooked just about anyway. But the fav at the moment in our house is-
                            marinate any lamb cut (all except mince)with olive oil a bunch of mint a tablespoon of honey a tablespoon of mustard(we like dijon), garlic and then grill on the char section of your bbq or pan. Finger licken good.
