  • YPYPW:
    You can't eat beef at restaurants anymore because CAFO tastes like crap (and it's usually over-cooked).

    you have kerrygold butter, olive oil, coconut flakes, trail mix, 87% dark chocolate, and grass-fed paleo jerkey in your desk drawer at work.

    Your fridge contains at least 3 different bowls/containers with bacon grease (because they're from different batches/cures=different flavors), and there are knife/spoon marks on the top of each one (veggies and an egg friend in bacon grease is awesome when you're out of bacon)
    You have multiple pounds of pastured butter in the "butter keeper" in your fridge door

    people know you're at a (relatively large) meeting because someone saw "a lady with a bike" coming in. (and word gets back to you... "I knew you were here...")
    You secretly cheer when there's a cheese/fruit plate for dessert (alongside SEVERAL plates of junky junk) at said meeting - and serve yourself with a spoon from said cheese plate (most of my cheese was taken home for later, along with salmon and caprese salad).

    You know exactly which spots in your work neighborhood can serve a primal(sih) meal (chipotle, fiveguys, make-your-own salad place), and which ones to avoid like the plague (either because they're crap or they refuse to make you/they're extremely confused by bun-less burgers/chicken)

    • When all the sugary crap in the workplace, which used to have me in all-day craving fits ( and caving-in fits ), becomes just like the wall, or the floor, or a door frame ... I don't even notice it anymore.

      • YKYP when you think this is an awsume 10th wedding aniversary gift from hubby (who thinks your nuts but gets it for you anyways....)


        (Yes, its olive oil)
        Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

          You're at the Zoo, there are NO edible food choices so you fast all day... but you and your husband keep looking at the animals and saying "Yep, totally edible" and "I'd eat that"


          (I had a fresh squeezed lemonade small serving size made in a xlarge cup so there was extra water and using less sugar... it was actually good.)
          Then I bought a bottle of water and refilled, squeezing the lemon again. Ahhhhh.

            You post a picture of yourself in a suit, at a friends wedding, on Facebook and one of the first comments was someone asking you if you had shoes on (I did, didn't like it....or the bloody suit).

            • YKYPW you pull out the bag of bones in your freezer to add another beef shank bone, and it occurs to you that strung together correctly, beef shank bones would make a great wrist bangle.

                    • When you have a small piece of birthday cake (something you used to really look forward to) then you are disgusted by the chemical after taste and super sugar overload and can't wait to get home to throw your famous mesquite, garlic and lime drumsticks (with skin of course) onto the grill. Birthday cake suck!

                      • When you have stopped watching the news completely, but you know that fall is coming when you get up to cook breakfast and your coconut oil has turned back into a solid.

                        When you consider 6 slices of bacon, sauerkraut, and 3 eggs a healthy breakfast, then see someone eating a bran muffin, low fat yogurt, and a big glass of apple juice and think "He's going to give himself a heart attack!"

                        When you are moving and you realize that a stack of moving boxes makes a great stand up desk to put your laptop on to type this post.

                              Hah! This is my life. I'm excited because our coconut oil is getting softer by the day, hurrah! Spring has sprung!

                              Anyway YKYPW... when you decide to go cow pooling, even though you know your freezer is very very tiny and already full of meat. And you've already shotgunned the offal....

                                Pam I know exactly what you are talking about. At work lately there have been tons of junk food around. Friday there was a random bag of chips lying around on a table. I saw it but it didn't register with as food. Then a co-worker who fully knows I eat primal, came in a quickly grabbed a hand full of chips. She is on a "diet" i.e. CW, and stated how she has no will power when junk food is left out at work. I just laughed and kept on working.
