  • Overheard in line at Chipotle:

    Guy #1: I'm not going to get the chips today.
    Guy #2: Yeah?
    Guy #3: Yeah. I realized they make me so sleepy in the afternoon. All that fat and salt - it's killing me.

        Also, my response to the friend who posted "another great reason to go veg!" along with the candy-feed story was: "this just adds to the reasons I only eat pastured meats (and am willing to pay the premium for them)".... I smugly report that my response got several "likes"

          They will feed a "feed lot" steer anything they can get it to ingest that will add a pound to it's weight, they don't care it's it makes a good quality of meat/fat on the carcass or not.
          I think it's funny that one of the comments defends the practice by explaining "sugar just turns into fat."

          ...someone at Nabisco headquarters is desperate to censor that comment, I'm sure.

          • I went out for a meal last night, it was somewhere reasonably priced, nothing flash. There wasn't much on the menu i could have so i chose roast chicken and ordered an extra side of 'seasonal veg'. My veg turned out to be a saucer with perhaps 3 tablespoons of PEAS....and that was it.....apparently that was the only veg they had!!! WTF! ha ha the chicken was very nice though.....

              "Seasonal veg" just means "whatever canned/frozen vegetable was cheapest when we ordered food this month".

              Part of the reason I hate eating out now is because I know there's nothing good I can exchange my grain/potato side for. Hooray, freezer-burned vegetables that don't taste like actual vegetables, or a fruit cup that will knock me out of ketosis. For a while I started asking for a fried egg on the side, but I can taste the rancid oil they fried it in.. And the eggs themselves taste like crap compared to the farm eggs I'm used to. So basically the only thing I want to eat at restaurants is straight-up meat. And I can eat higher-quality, cheaper, and tastier meat at home. And I can eat it with real grassfed butter, as opposed to butter-flavored industrial oil. And eggs and vegetables that actually taste like eggs and vegetables.

              At this point I would actually rather just not eat than go to most restaurants. The only notable exception is indian buffet. (Yes, thank you, I WILL eat 2 whole plates of chicken tikka masala, without rice, for $8.99 flat fee!)

                ^^ This

                I am the same way. It either has to be VERY high quality food or a good Indian buffet. Some of the cheaper ones are ok but there is VERY good one here in Edmonton that is worth the extra price.
                Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                  I just couldn't get over the fact peas were the ONLY veg they had! My friend had salad with her meal and it was just a pile of lettuce.

                  I think i'd rather enjoy my own cooking and know exactly what i'm eating anyway!

                    • First time poster - Have had this thread bookmarked for a while! I've started to write down the quotes I'm hearing, so here's a collection from my notepad.

                      here's a thing that happened last week. It was about 9pm and the store was closing:

                      *hands over food to the cashier*

                      Cashier: *picks up almond spread and bursts out laughing* Huh!? Whats this!? Jade!

                      She then got another cashier to come over, and both were staring at the almond spread like they've never seen it before.

                      Cashier: "So where was this stocked? Where the jam is?"

                      Me: "No, its in health food section."

                      Jade: "I'm pretty sure you are the first to get some then. Like I've totally been here for like two years and I've never seen 'almond spread' I mean like why can't you use peanut butter?"

                      I kind of just stared at them. Then the cashier was like "Um yeah well I think peanut butter is more cheaper, but anyway"

                      Technically Peanut Butter big tub will cost you like $5, whereas Almond Spread was also $5, but was about half the size. But I've never finished a jar of peanut butter (waaaay to dry for me) anyway unlike Almond Spread which I'm always using for something.

                      Another one, was me and my roommate cooking spaghetti bol. I told her three times to not add pasta to mine. She's very forgetful, and its quite funny sometimes.

                      Anyway:

                      First was when she put the whole packet of spaghetti in the saucepan, and she said "This will be big enough for both of us for two meals" I told her I wasn't going to have spaghetti with mine, and she said "Huh? But you NEED to have spaghetti with spaghetti bolongese or else its not spag bol."

                      Then the next one was she finished cooking the spaghetti and was about to put the spaghetti in the sauce and mince which I was stirring and luckily I stopped her and she got confused again like "But this is HOW you have spaghetti, you can't have it any other way"

                      Then the third time, five minutes later, she put pasta on my plate and I said again, "No spaghetti for me, I already said!" then she said "But all you've got is zucchini slices with yours and mushrooms."

                      ...And then I only finished half my dinner because I'd added waaaaay too much paprika into my vegetables and couldn't eat it all because it was too hot!

                      ---

                      Said roommate, after I found she doesn't eat unless I'm there cooking with her (therefore starves herself most of the time in effort to lose weight) i've basically made it my mission to start introducing some paleo "diet" to her. if I said "lifestyle" or any other word she wouldn't have done it. But shes keen, now because I told her she can lose weight on it, but I didn't say straight away. These were some of her questions:

                      "Is porridge part of the diet?"
                      "No."
                      "But on the back of the packet it says its good for you!"

                      "I can't take out rice. Its in my culture, I can't take rice out."
                      "Come on, just for a week!"
                      "No."

                      (looks at food menu I've given her) "I'm not eating bacon."
                      "Why?"
                      "Its fatty."
                      "But I said this is high fat low carb! You have to eat it so you are more healthy and stop eating only bread every few days."
                      "Okay, but I'm not eating eggs though. Eggs can go fuck themselves."

                      "But maple syrup is just sugar right? You've got some in your cupboard. So you are cheating your diet."

                        • I asked for chicharonnes at my favorite Tex Mex joint here in town. Normally, they bring out both those and chips with the salsa, but the server forgot. Anyways, I asked for it, and the lady at the next table over leaned in and said "You know those'll make you fat, right? I should know," and she patted her (rather ample) belly.
                          I just shrugged and said "they keep me thin and happy, so it works for me."

                          • My husband took me out to dinner the other day. Now they (kids, hubby) usually complain about taking me out because I'm so difficult to feed (all I want is healthy). But my two teens were off doing something on their own and so it was just hubby and I. We went to Outback. So we get the crab appetizer. Okay, usually I can't eat anything, but that was fantastic. I could have eaten the whole thing myself. Crab, avacado, wasabi vinagrette. Anyway, so I ordered steak and sweet potato fries. My steak was pretty good, despite being a grain fed monstrosity (have you heard of the steak glue they are using for large cuts and the candy they are feeding now?)

                            In comes the "warm from the oven" loaf of sugar/I mean bread that passes for an pre-appetizer. My husband proceeded to eat the entire loaf. And all the fried corn chips that were with the crab. And regular fries. And whipped cream covered ice cream over a brownie. And he complained of not feeling well.

                            And the next day he said, "I don't understand why I don't have any energy. I feel so gassed all the time."

                            The only thing that perturbed me was the fact they way over salted my meat (to get me to drink and eat more) and put sugar on my fries(as if sweet potatoes needed sugar). Ugh.

                            Where is the sous vide beef heart I have in the fridge? Just thinking of the carb explosion, I need to eat something healthy... my home pastured eggs and heart sounds good.
                            The eyes of all hope in thee, O Lord: and thou givest them meat in due season.

                              That was what being a vegetarian was like. You'd get an iceberg lettuce salad. Maybe if you were lucky you'd get some cukes, onion and a tomato.

                              The best is in the south- home of the meat and veggie plate! Awesome except veggies often include chocolate pudding, banana pudding, mac and cheese, hush puppies, macaroni salad and cottage cheese. If you are lucky you can get green beans or collards. Maybe pickled beets.

                              I eat at home. But there are some good places- hell, Friday night I went to a place that served me 6 huge chunks of pork!

                                I think the greatest success of our marketting-based consumer culture has been training entire generations to believe everything they say.
