And remember that almost everything listed above is somewhere on the approved FDA food pyramid and that, along with other reasons, is why I despise the FDA.

I like educating the cashiers about the different types of produce they carry. When I bring up jicama, artichokes, avocadoes (!!) shallots, whatever I'm usually met with a blank stare and a "ummm...what is this called?" :P
A good friend of mine from waaayyy back is very very obese. It's so sad to see her drink diet sodas....in fact, it's so sad to see anyone drink diet sodas!! And she's quite a smart person otherwise. I introduced the idea of primal to her a few months back because we happened to be talking about food and weightloss, and she immediately dismissed it.
I get a kick out of that too. I show up with ginger root and turnips and get asked what they are. I show up with beef cheek, beef heart, or mustard greens and get asked how I cook it. I actually had a cashier (I go through her line a lot; she's quick) ask me why I don't ever show up with the easy to scan stuff. She wasn't complaining, she was just curious.
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!"

Just bought 120 free range eggs at the local Sunday market today for $20.00.
Yep ... primal life is good .....
Goodness me! what are you going to do with that many eggs at once? and I pay $6-7 a dozen here in balmy palmy so that's an awesome deal.
I hate being in the supermarket and seeing overweight people fill their trolly (kart) with weight watchers crap and low fat dairy products.
I just can't imagine eating nothing but fat-free yogurt and lean cuisine every day--nutritional disaster aside, I think I'd be breaking into the cat's tinned food just to get some flavor!
