  • You know you are Primal when....

    Cow's milk tastes too sweet

    You can taste the chemicals in conventional bacon - ack and gag!

    Your adolescent members of your family don't want to come to your house anymore cause you don't have any 'good' food



    Lets do this 'you might be a redneck..' style

    You might be primal if "natural" ice cream is wayyyyy too sweet.
    ....if your neighbors don't even give you odd looks over climbing trees and sprinting down the sidewalk.
    ...Your definition of food can include redneck fast food: hitting an animal at 60 and taking it home for dinner.
    ...the neighborhood kids always want YOU to take them to the park because you play on the equipment with them.
    ...3 dozen eggs a week is a small week, you must've been sick.
    ...your BAS contains at 400 cal, probably closer to 600- 1000.
    ...Your favorite dessert has no added sugar and is still almost too sweet.
    ... Your cast iron just sits on the stovetop because there's no point in putting it away between meals.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      - people constantly ask if you're "egg bound" yet
      - there is a blurred line between "ahhhh, cute" and "mmmmm, tasty"
      - you struggle to find high quality, deliberately fatty cuts.
      - you weed the veg patch and wonder what the weeds taste like
      - grapefruit tastes sweet!

        You're at the farmer's market choosing paths. "Do we need to go down there?"
        "No, it's just baked stuff."

          You go into the supermarket because they are having a sale on meat, fruit and veggies.

              you think 2 - 3 dinner spoons of coconut oil is a good snack
              you lick your platter to get all the fat
              you fry your bacon in butter to get more fat
              you fire up your grill at 05:30 in the morning to get a nice ribeye for breakfast
              you can wait until whenever to get something to eat while all your CW friends faints from low blood sugar
              Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

                you eat too many Brussels sprouts and you figure it fits into the 80/20 rule
                your whole front yard has become a vegetable garden
                you've eaten eggs & bacon for breakfast and only have water at lunch with your friends who are ravenous because they had "healthy" fruit for breakfast
                you're the only person in your office with a stand-up desk

                  - you look forward to a Sunday roast with non-primals...cos you get all the best bits
                  - your co-workers simultaneously express concern about you not having much (if any) lunch and commenting how lovely your dinner is smelling
                  - you consume food, it doesn't consume you

                    You look forward to Saturday night for all the meat involved.
                    Your officemate simultaneously comments on how the bacon in your BAS is bad for you but how it smells oh, so good.
                    People can't decide if you're eating healthy or will die of a heart attack
                    The idea of a donut or a cinnamon bun is like the idea of tree bark: sure, it's technically edible, but why would you want to?
                    A grocery emergency is when you're out of steak, egg, or greens.

                      this happened to me the last time i was visiting my parents. oh so gross.

                      Your cast iron just sits on the stovetop because there's no point in putting it away between meals
                      that's so me. haha!

                      you can wait until whenever to get something to eat while all your CW friends faints from low blood sugar
                      whenever i go out to lunch with friends, everyone else talks about how shaky & starving they are. le sigh...

                      70% dark chocolate is too sweet.

                      a spoonful of macadamia nut butter is all you need for breakfast.

                      you swear you're the only one buying the whole milk/cream top yogurt at the grocery store

                      you panic when they move the uncured bacon
                      And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the wind longs to play with your hair

                        you think to yourself "Score!" when the grocery store have that one litre container of heavy whipping cream, instead of the puny 1/3 of a litre.
                        you are absolutely delighted when the cantina at work offers buffalo wings and chicken wings for lunch.

                        and this one I've got more and more of lately:

                        You're getting appreciative looks from the opposite sex.

                        Today as I was waiting in line at the grocery I got obvious flirting signals from a cutie waiting in line. Shame I am already taken, but I just smiled at her and got a beaming smile back. Fantastic.
                        Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

                              ...when your workouts consists of swinging a giant club (mace), iron ball (kettlebell), sprinting, and hanging off a tree branch or other horizontal bar...
