  • I was out walking with my sister in law and couple of her buddies and the topic of diet came up. Normally, I keep my mouth shut and let people delude themselves, 'cause they sure as sin won't hear me. My sister in law mentioned that I'd lost some weight and had more energy, but she could never eat the way I do. The two friends pounced on that and asked what I did. I responded with "The human body is not evolutionarily designed for grains or beans, but for meats, fats, and vegetation."
    "Grains are vegetation," the guy responded.
    "Dude, if you can go out into the country here and gather up enough grains of wild wheat to make a loaf of bread every week, I might believe you. I just know my body runs better and my thyroid behaves better with no grains or beans."
    "That's not what Dr. Oz says, he says you should eat beans everyday because it's healthier than meat."
    *facepalm*
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      In the L. Frank Baum book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Wizard's true name is Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkel Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs, but he goes by the initials of his first and middle name. The acronym is OZ PINHEAD. Seems appropriate, no? Time to pull aside the curtain and reveal Oz for what he is.

        Of course! It's just a *start* - but it is a start.

                One? ONE?! 3 is a small quick meal. I couldn't imagine how sad one egg would look.
                yeah... i'd just continue my fast. one egg would just piss me off.

                    LOL i never knew that!

                    Speaking of going out and gathering wheat, friends of mine who just got a house with some land in upstate CA are going to lengths to grow a lot of their own food. Veggie plots, chickens, beehives, all sorts of good stuff. Theyre mostly vegetarian but theyre super against big agribusiness so we see eye to eye on a lot of points.

                    Anyway, part of their plan is to grow their own wheat. They're really excited about it, got a scythe and everything. I couldnt help but think that they are going to learn REAL FAST how much work grains require to gather and what little pay-off you get for such amount of work.

                    Id be a lot more excited if they were growing like einkorn or emmer or some other wild-type form of grain, but last I talked to them they were just planning on regular semi-dwarf wheat. Sigh.
                    "Since going primal, I've found that there are very few problems that cannot be solved with butter and/or bacon fat."

                      Please keep us updated; can't wait to see their eyes open.

                      But being against big agri-business, how could they grow semi-dwarf wheat? Have they heard of Wheat Belly? Spelt? Kamut, even?

                        Yeah, I don't think they've fully researched milling and the type of crop yields you need to have a useful amount of flour.

                          They are smart, i mean the gal is a professor at the local college and the guy is an environmental scientist. But theyre also looking to install solar panels and rain water collectors and new insulation in the house and im sure in the crush to do ALL THESE THINGS they just havent had the time to really sit down and think about the implications of growing the grain

                            Hey, even smart, educated people sometimes do foolish things. I'm reasonably smart and educated, and today I got hot beef fat all over my kitchen counter (though I did get most of it in the jar where it was supposed to go).

                              I'm supposed to be a genius and yet I frequently do stupid things. Like overspending with my shiny new credit card.
                              In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
