    This sort of hijacked argumentative thread acheives nothing, confuses newbies and annoys the F**K out of me.

    Here on the Isle of Lewis it's a local speciality. The local butchers all make their own recipe and it's probably the only bit of grain that I regularly eat. It's great with a cooked breakfast and...

    So nice to see someone on here for whom Primal was not the answer, and yet still supports it as a valid lifestyle. Sounds like some extra research on your part has paid dividends!
