      • I was at a convenience store this morning...a nice place...with guy handing out coupons by the front door. He smiled big, thrust the coupon out and said, "Here is a coupon for a free pastry!" When I politely declined, he was visibly incredulous. He even followed me a little ways, "Sir, its free. You don't even have to buy anything." Hahahaha. I went and got my coffee and couldn't help but watch the people grabbing the coupons enthusiastically (as I would have three years ago). The space in front of the big pastry display was like piranhas going after fresh kill.

          A similar thing happened to me at a fancy market store, they were offering tastes of olive oil and balsamic, but of course the tastes were on squares of bread. The guy offered me one, I politely declined, and he literally looked taken aback. I was like, "Umm...sorry?"

            I went to a fancy-pants olive oil and vinegar tasting a few months ago! They served the tastes in these eentsy little tablespoon-sized cups, so you could taste them on their own--no bread needed. It was great, especially seeing how many people seemed baffled at the idea of tasting the fancy oils or vinegars for their own merits.

            Thanks for the 'grats, guys! =D

                  --
                  my boss is always about dieting, and I was telling her about my 'new diet' and she seemed baffled. then the next day she said she spoke to her trainer and her trainer told her that people who exercise a lot do this diet. and i was like, well, you dont HAVE to exercise a lot. and she didnt know what to say. lol. today she says ''how are you liking your new diet?'' in a weird voice and i just said ''I'M LOVING IT! i feel awesome!!" lol

                    Wow these guys don't have any freaking clue what they are talking about.

                    Oh right, suddenly, it's not the diet that's bad, it's everyone's view on cavemen.

                        Before the farmers' market closed up shop for the season, I went there and stopped by a nut-butter stand. They had lots of samples...all of which were supposed to go onto crackers or pieces of bread, very considerately provided. I took the jar of raw hazelnut/dark chocolate butter and spooned a bit onto my finger. (Didn't stick my finger in the jar, really!) The vendor thought I was cookoo. But it was so delicious that I bought a jar. Once I'm done with Whole 30, I'll be cracking that baby open! Nom!!!

                        • Just read this on a caffeine benefits article: "Of course, forget the standard pastries and cigarettes normally associated with drinking coffee....Organic black coffee with natural whole grain toast or pastries is a good way to have your java fix without adding items that minimize or neutralize coffee's antioxidants." (emphasis added)

                          so , no pastries, but whole grain pastries are okay. ok. /facepalm

                            What's the difference between whole grains and slightly processed whole grains?

                            It's the same darn stuff entering your body.

                            Sure, the sugar spike is less, but that doesn't change the fact that your blood glucose skyrockets. Where's the logic?

                            • A friend posted that she was looking to create unprocessed, whole food meals for her family. Yay! I thought. Then I read the meals she'd made: Tofurky sausage and peppers, tofu stir-fry, noodles with sauce, and grilled cheese sandwiches.

                              Oi, I thought. There isn't a single meal in there that doesn't contain a processed food (with "Tofurky" being the worst of them) (seriously, Tofurky is tofuckin' awful -- at least Field Roast was edible!).

                              The popular wisdom that "if it's vegetarian, it's healthy" drives me nutso.

                                I wonder if she used that good ol' unprocessed American cheese for the grilled cheese sandwiches.
