    Ditto - when browsing for lunch, finding all the ready-cooked chicken is cooked 'in a brown sugar marinade'. Oh, well, if it's brown sugar it must be good.

    Gnash. Hungry.

    Why is the aisle suddenly empty?

    You know, I was displaying bees to members of the public in my local park and this woman who worked there offered me a free ice-cream. I politely declined and she said "Really?" in a disbelieving tone. I insisted and thought she got the message when she walked off to get my brother one, until she came back and shoved a tub of ice-cream in my face and said "Did you really not want one? Because I got you one anyway."

    Not wanting to be rude, I reluctantly took the ice-cream, ate less than half of it and then passed it to my father because I just couldn't eat it.
    It's amazing how some people just don't understand that you might not want ice-cream. Now I know what vegetarians feel like when people say "Are you sure you don't want a cut of meat? It's really good meat".

    Brown sugar isn't touted as healthy, there's just a taste difference. The molasses gives it a deeper, richer flavor; it's why some recipes will call for both white and brown sugar (most chocolate chip cookie recipes do this). Sigh...I miss baking.

    When you return to the kitchen to find the frying pan of coconut oil you were heating to sear veggies in has a beetle sizzling in the middle of it and you actually have to think about whether to fish it out or just toss the veggies in on top.

    (Yes, this really happened a couple nights ago. I did eventually decide to discard the beetle. At no point did I even consider discarding the coconut oil and starting over).

    When you screw up the spinach and cheese omelet, shrug your shoulders, add more grease and turn it into green eggs and bacon.

    After a feast of carbs you feel awful, you have started blogging your Primal Journey, you find yourself experimenting with recipes, you are barefoot at least 80% of the time, you visit Primal blogs daily, have taken a few cold showers, run barefoot through the hills, and people look at you oddly when you describe your lifestyle....yup. I'm diggin' this Primal way of life.
