I recently moved and I found a health food store pretty close by so I ran in thinking I would pick up some gelatin, easy-peasy. I asked the guy there if he had any and he basically scoffed at me, "No, I don't carry that pig stuff. It's made with skins, tendons, bones, and brains and I won't ever stock it."
I'm thinking to myself, yup, what's your point? Then he tried to recommend agar flakes No, I want gelatin because it has skins and tendons in it! Later while poking around the store it dawned on me, everything is plant based. Damn soy. Who told the vegan he could have the only health store around?
You are an animal on this planet and the rules of engagement are non negotiable.
DUDE: It's all natural. Corn is natural. Anyone can grow corn. More liberal propaganda just like global warming. Hippies.

ME It's technically FEED, not food. Not that I wouldn't eat it if my mother-in-law served it to me, that would be rude. But you won't catch me wasting money on grains.

ME I understand Wal-Mart has a great price on Round-Up if you want to dip it in there for flavor.

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
Huh. 'Health food shop' here in the UK means 'vegetarian (+ fish oil hidden away in capsules)'. It's where you go to buy your soya milk, gluten meat replacement and soya fake cheese, along with a small fortune in supplements in an attempt to overcome the deficiency symptoms. (Ask me how I know...)
Ah yes the mystery of the "health food shop" with over half the shelf space devoted to pills and supplements!
And don't get me started on the "healthy snack bars" they sell, made with grains, agave nectar, soy, and vegetable oil...
But at least I can get local organic eggs at a very good price in one of my local ones. I dont know what they think when I go in and buy 5 boxes at a time. Perhaps they think I have a huge family!
