      I even had some guy say "ew you're using pus milk in your coffee?" when I was making mine. I wanted to slap his sissy testosterone depleted ass around, but I held back.
      That is so fucking rude to make a comment like that. You should have slapped his disrespectful face.

      I get so so sick of judgy ass people feeling the need to "comment".

        I don't look in other people's grocery carts too often while walking around the store, but I see a lot of what people buy when they put it all on the conveyer belt. It's usually an array of packaged snacks, bakery goodies, microwave dinners, frozen breaded "meat", ice cream, sugary cereal etc etc. A lot of times there's no fresh produce whatsoever.

        Sometimes when people look in my cart they give me that "oh, you're one of THOSE people" looks, like I'm a food snob or something because I buy organic and grassfed as often as I can afford it. Honestly though, I really don't mind being a "food snob" because it's keeping me healthy and fit, unlike eating a standard American diet.

        I'll admit that sometimes now I actually get embarrassed when I have to buy junk food. I was in charge of picking up cake mix, cookie dough, frosting and some other junk food for a friend's surprise birthday party, and I felt so awkward buying all that stuff. The cashier was one I see regularly, and since he knows the type of food I usually buy he commented that all that stuff must not be for me

          Two ways to deal with people like that, whether food or whatever.

          1. "What makes you think I give a shit what you think?"

          2. "You do realize that most people don't need to hear every thought that bounces off the back of your little brain, don't you?"

          It takes practice, but eventually responses like that will become habit. Maybe we can all band together to shut down one rude asshole at a time.

          Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

            I was asked to buy a coworker a king size Kit Kat and a Mountain Dew from the gas station the other day. I felt absolutely horrible in the checkout line. I honestly felt very embarrassed and hoped no one else was thinking I was buying that crap for myself.

              I ended up buying some potato chips at the health food store (I didn't want to make another stop just for chips) for the kids that are coming over for my son's B day and I couldn't believe how expensive they were, it's been so long since I've bought chips I really had no idea how much they cost. I felt bad spending money on a non-food item, it made realize how much money people spend on "food" that is really just filler and completely unnecessary.

                Way back when I was a 'new mom' I was part of a non-profit group that educated people about using modern cloth nappies (you call them diapers in the US?), imagine my shame when every damn time I needed to get disposables because the kids had diarrhoea or we were going on a trip someone would recognise me at the supermarket and take a long hard look at the offending objects in my cart. One of the joys of living in a relatively small town, you cannot hide!

                  One of the benefits of living in a small town, if you don't know what you're doing... someone else does!

                  My hubby has gradually come over to the primal side, but he still has to have his black licorice. I feel like a drug dealer whenever I buy it for him. *sigh*

                    Yesterday while checking out at the grocery store the clerk made the comment that we must be 'stocking up' on fruits and vegetables because, with the exception of two dozen eggs, some fish, and some paper towels, that's all we bought - but no, that (along with some grass-fed meet we've got in our deep-freeze) is just what my husband and I eat over the course of a week! I'm sure everyone seeing our cart thinks we're vegetarian.

                        I just can't believe that people would honestly purchase Lucky Charms and feed that to their kids as "part of a balanced breakfast" every morning. There are so many ingredients that I am allergic to, I cannot understand what ever made us brainwashed into thinking colorful marshmallows in addition to sugar coated crispy wheat cereal type things was okay to feed kids.

                        I used to work at a grocery store, and we faced the shelves so that all the sugary cereals (Lucky Charms, Cookie Crisps, Fruit Loops) were on the 2nd and 3rd shelf. When I asked why, I was told it was so the kids would see it and cry for their parents to buy it for them, which meant better sales.

                          I often chuckle when i unload my groceries on the conveyor. Bacon, sausage, pork roast, steaks, chicken, couple sweet potatoes and some veggies.
                          Many times i have been asked if i am having a bbq and if so where is the sauce lol. i politely laugh and say that this is one weeks worth of my normal diet lol.

                            The other day I passed through the register at Walmart with a pork shoulder, a 3# package of bacon ends and pieces, and a brisket as long as my arm.

Again, my brain is just screaming "you seriously think full fat will make it taste any better?".

                              If only it wasn't socially unacceptable to holler this stuff at people as you walk through the shop. I'd be giving them all a thorough education!
                              I'm allergic to dairy. I experiment with soy milk, coconut milk and almond milk in an effort to find something that tastes decent as a creamer in my coffee and that can be used as an alternative to milk in recipes that call for it. I didn't choose to develop an allergy to dairy and I'm not happy about it but I'd be even less happy if someone got all judgmental on my choice to use an alternative and started preaching to me about it.

                                I am lactose intolerant, and through my "substitutions" I developed an allergy to soy. I now just either bite the bullet or pop a Lactaid with some real creamer.

                                Stay away from soy (yes I'm prejudiced), it's chop full of nasty and doesn't contain much good. I like coconut milk and rice milk as far as milk substitutes. Rice milk because it tastes similar and has similar consistency to skim milk (which I was accustomed to pre-lactose-intolerance), and coconut milk because it is yummy and full of good stuff. I cannot vouch for almond milk, as I am allergic to almonds, and the last time I drank that my throat swelled up (which lead me into the doctor's office for an allergy test).

                                As for people judging me, yeah, that happened a lot. Nobody understood why I wouldn't just buy a gallon of milk (I still don't, just the creamer), and I was even accused of faking it it couple of times by family members.

                                But at the same time, I'd love to yell at all those acquaintances of mine who preach health food and Warrier Dash, yet they still buy wheat bread weekly, by the loaf...
