  • Eating with hands

    I was having roasted chicken, zucchini, and pork chops the other night. I had my knife and fork and started to chow down, but it felt weird so I started eating with my hands. It just felt right.

    Does anybody else do this?

    PS - not sure I'm going to start cooking with my hands... safety first

    I do sometimes. I always pick up the bone on a steak or porkchop to gnaw on it. Sometimes I eat salad with my hands too. Never eggs or soft squash though. A spoon makes those easier.

      Yes, often. Basically whenever I'm not in public or in a formal setting. Definitely no reservations around friends. It just feels right. At home I usually keep cooked meat in the fridge at home wrapped in foil. When I'm hungry, I just hold it by the foil and munch on the other side.

        Love eating with my fingers and hand, always did. Now have an excuse being primal, the women in my life always had an opinion. Some would like and say hot things and others would say WTF is wrong with you, eat with your fork and knife that's what its there for!!!!
        Very funny topic to see this morning!

          No. I'm a big fan of using silverware.

            Hahahaha. I haven't eaten this way in front of people yet, but it's going to happen sooner than later.

              Go to India. Everybody eats with their hands there. And for some reason, rather than easy-to-eat foods all their food is runny and messy. I eat with my hands all the time, especially when meat is still on the bone. But I'll usually eat the other things with a fork.

                I can vouch for this. I had some Indian roommates in college. They sometimes ate rice and dal (lentils) with their hands. They made some delicious dal too. I haven't had any in years, but if I was going to eat something not Primal, that might make the list.

                  Depends on how messy it is. If I end up with more on me than in me, there's a problem.
                  Then it depends on how hot or cold it is.

                  Other than that, it just depends. There's something innately satisfying about eating with one's hands when it's not an unacceptable situation.

                      Yeah, I have a friend who is from Pakistan and I remember one time his mother-in-law was visiting and she was eating her food with her hands, but they use the naan as well.

                      She sure can cook though. Wow!

                        I feel like this too, a lot.

                        And if not my hands, then chopsticks perhaps, because I feel like grace would have utilized sticks as eating implements on occasion as well.
                        "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                          Soup aside, if I'm at home alone, I eat nearly everything chunky with my hands. Except scrambled eggs, which has a wriggly texture that bothers me to touch. Sometimes I do use a fork and steak knife on my steaks, but only because the smaller bites make it last longer!

                            Ribs are meat with a handle! It's made for your hands. I agree, there must be something wrong with you

                              My husband eats broccoli with his hands. Always. I've gotten used to it at this point. But my sister-in-law is NOT happy as now my niece is eating broccoli with her hands. I'm thinking.. at least she is eating broccoli!
