    Please tell me I'm wrong!
    That is always what I think of, which is why I haven't tried it. I guess I missed the memo about BLENDING it... not just dumping it in.

    I might be tempted to try this. Mom bought me a little smoothie maker for christmas and I stored it away in the midst of my sister having her baby crisis. I need to find it.

      One of the most frequent comments I get when I do tell someone I eat primal/paleo is "Oh that's one of those low carb things." Well, yes, it can be for some, but that's not what's it's supposed to be about. Who knows how that misinterpretation even started. Another misinterpretation I think a lot of people have is that it's just a weight loss diet.

        Ditto...



        Zeera, it's well ingrained in us (haha, see what I did there) that we need to eat breads for the whole grains and carbs, and it's been a staple of our diets for so long, that people don't understand why anyone would cut it out unless you're intolerant (poor thing!) or trying to lose weight (wack job!)

          Yeah, the misconceptions non-paleos have about paleo, if they even know what it is, are even further out there. Earlier today someone forwarded me another link talking about how they thought the paleo diet was a "joke" when they first heard about it, then went on to try and debunk it while clearly showing no understanding of what the paleo diet actually is.

          Most of the time I just tell people I'm allergic to wheat or soy. For the totally uninitiated I usually just tell people "I eat lean meats, fruits, and vegetables; I don't eat grains, soy, and processed foods." Sometimes just going with the specifics helps get out of the trap of abstract ideas like "paleo" or "primal." Trying to explain things like o3 : o6 ratios, etc. to people who've never heard any of this before is just TMI.

              Just a side-note, the butter most people use is unsalted butter. Not sure how salted butter would taste, lol.

                Far as I know all seven of those half truths/fantasies have already been addressed. I'm pretty sure this entire book is made of straw actually .

                  yes definitely no salt!!! and ideally the good stuff...grassfed organic blah blah.

                  also, i just blend the fats with a bit of the coffee...not all of it. then pour it in like it was foamy cream. mmmmmmmmm

                    That one in particular cracks me up. Coffee is a processed food, butter is a processed food, but somehow mixing the two together ends up being a paleo/primal forum's wet dream of a perfect breakfast.

                    Go figure...

                      Unless you're hunting and fishing for your own, milking your own cows, etc., it's pretty much all processed food. hahahaha - just cracking up.

                      I would bet there are at least as many people (or more) who either skip breakfast completely, or eat food for breakfast than who drink 400 calories worth of butter first thing in the morning.

                        Your guys definition of "processed food" is whack IMO. Coffe = cooked fruit (OMG the processing!). Butter = Churned Cream (I can just shake a jar of grassfed cream and get this). WTF? So any cooked or cut food is highly processed now?

                          the one time i made butter, i processed it super hard with a blender

                          it was delicious processed food

                          but seriously, every time i see the title of this thread i keep expecting it to be sex fantasies
                          beautiful
                          yeah you are

                          Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
                          lol

                            +1.

                            Because really, if we take it all the way back, I guess we should be biting chunks out of whole hanging cows because butchering it is a process. And don't wash anything because washing is a process. And eat those raw potatoes because if you cook them you'll turn them into processed food and then they won't be what Grok ate! [/sarcasm]

                              Yeah, I was also sorely disappointed. I thought we were gonna get into some role play talk... a little loin cloth and coconut oil action at the least
