  • Imagine.............what if?..........



    .......most of our society subscribed to the PB? What would our lives look like? (extra credit for creativity).


    In our schools?


    In our workplaces?


    In our homes?


    On our roads?


    Our communities?


    The first thing I would love to imagine, instead of suburban sprawl, are communities requiring developers to plan green spaces, community playgrounds, bike lanes, sidewalks, and places for local businesses to operate, so that folks could walk or bike to pick up their groceries or go to the farmer's market!


    Imagine............

      My wife and I talk about this often, one thing for sure our government wouldn't be having to pass a 1 trillion $ health bill. Just think how many hungry people you could feed primal food with 1 trillion dollars!

        O beautiful for spacious skies,

        For verdant rows of greens!

        For purple mountain majesties,

        Above the meated plain!

          Well, there's the obvious one: people would bring in healthy snacks instead of doughnuts and oreos for special events.


          At work, going away parties/birthday parties would involve a barbecue, not cake and punch.


          Schools would waste a lot less time teaching kids completely useless knowledge and concentrate on teaching stuff they'll actually use. I know this might seem like a bit of a stretch but since the PB is about functional fitness, why not emphasize functional knowledge as well?

            I think lunchtimes at school / work would be a much better place. Think of kids / adults sitting down to fresh, brightly coloured foods, that actually require CHEWING so take a long time to eat (relatively), rather than white / grey / brown mush. Then there would be no sugar high and quiet due to feeling stuffed / guilt at over-eating / guilt at eating (which I see a lot). People would finish lunch invigorated, not just waiting for home time. I see people chatting, eating at a leisurely pace and probably going for a walk in the sun after.


            Afternoons would not be so hard, huh?


            Sigh. And a world where we don't celebrate or reward ourselves by damaging ourselves. Wonderful.

              I'm going to be homeschooling my kids next year and am quite excited to teach them about Mark's primal food pyramid!!!


              ...and all the rest of the great habits they can have.

                ...the real question is how would this affect our brothels?

                  Probably would have a negative effect on brothels, because wives/girlfriends would have way more energy,

                  and husbands/boyfriends would lose their spare tire. Who would have to pay, then?

                  ;-)

                    Hey! You're talking about the major source of my income! I'm in the medical field. If everyone is healthy, I'll have to find a new job...lol.


                    I've always wanted to be a helicoper pilot anyway...


                    I think this would be amazing. Could you really imagine?

                      Or we become more in touch with our own sexualities and don't take playing around with others quite so seriously anymore.

                      You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

                          I think this would be fantastic! If you guys haven't read Joel Salatin's book "Everything I Want to do is Illegal". He describes an awesome community and a potentially more idyllic community. I highly recommend it.

                            People would no longer be suffering from carb stupor and actually be able to think!

                              Annie, I'm already thinking about where to hang Mark's signed poster with the Primal pyramid on it. (The Food Pyramid from Heaven to replace the Food Pyramid From Hell.)


                              That book fest was sure fun yesterday. I wonder if he could have pushed it to #1 if Amazon hadn't started limiting buyers to 3 copies. I wonder why they did that?


                              Annadragon, thanks for reminding me of Joel's book. Time to buy it. What a great title. There's a local farm near here which sells pastured meat and fresh produce. The farmer trained at Polyface Farm.
