Re the veges, yes I grant you a salad simple to assemble. But it is hard work to eat, compared to a nice spoonful of mashed spiced and buttered kumara for example. Just adding raw onions and mushrooms to a salad will not do as much for your enjoyment of them as frying them up in butter and then adding your beaten eggs to make a mini omelette, as another example.
So, you mean that instead of adding them to salad I could fry them in butter and... wait, frying things isn't unhealthy?
Food is more than fuel, it is worth the preparation to create something delicious that we can sit down and really enjoy consuming, ideally with other people. If you learn to make a really delicious dish whatever it may be - butter chicken, pumpkin soup, cheesecake - then it can become your signature dish and you can become famous for it within your family.
Re having no friends, this is a sad situation, it may take a long time to develop true friends but still you should make a point of doing something in company with other people, even just going somewhere that others also go to hang out for a bit. And if it ends up that someone gives you a piece of cake then just eat it, it won't ruin your diet and will help create connections with others.
Well, most non-introverted people see this situation as sad, personally I'm perfectly fine, I enjoy isolation and I have a lot of things to do in my free time, like thinking, reading, writing and improving my lifestyle. I don't even know what is exactly "friendship".
Yes, berries and fruit do contain sugars, but they are also high in anti oxidants (blackberries, blueberries). Citrus has vitamin C, just don't overdo them. Small doses = necessary antiox's, high doses = too much fructose! The whole moderation thing works well with organic, natural foods.. Just keep away from processed.
I can't find berries anywhere, and about citrus, how much is too much? I usually eat 1 lemon a day, is that too much or not enough?
Calcium you say? why not make bone broth? you can drink it straight or cook with it and it is full of all kinds of minerals. I dont think you need worry about calcium eating paleo. Too much iron maybe but Calcium? naaa.
Bone broth? Yes, I've heard of it, do you know the recipe by chance?
Well, most non-introverted people see this situation as sad, personally I'm perfectly fine, I enjoy loneliness and I have a lot of things to do in my free time, like thinking, reading, writing and improving my lifestyle. I don't even know what is exactly "friendship".
I believe what you mean is that you enjoy being alone.
Being alone and being lonely are two very different things.
I agree that one can actually be quite happy mostly alone. I too am not all that gregarious an individual.
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Yo, I'm 15 years old as well, and doing great on primal. I've been living this lifestyle for around 3/4 year now, and I feel like I've finally found my way of doing this. PM me if you want to know anything!
