    You know you're Primal when you're in your garden digging up an overgrown bed of irises, shaking the dirt off the tubers, and thinking to yourself "I'll bet these would taste good."

    Bearded Iris? (Iris germanica)...
    Can be dried and used to make Orris root powder... used as both a fixative and scent in perfumery...
    And a flavoring in some 'exotic' cuisines and for syrups.
    Orris root - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Not really for actual eating though.

    We always just left some dirt in the roots and put bundles into layers of wet newspaper in big grocery store paper bags... then stuck a "Free Iris" sign on them by the road when ours were overgrown.

    Daylilies make a much nicer edible floral boarder... the flowers (VERY yummy IMO) and tubers on the roots are both edible.

    you swallow a large flying bug while hiking and you freak out--about how it's going to mess up your IF regimen.

    Someone you haven't seen in awhile inquires if you're sick - because your face is looking "a bit drawn." That's not drawn, that's just not as fat as it used to be.

    (LOL at the bug.)

It's quick, but it's really not much more than a sawmill gravy with coffee and ham. Oh, and it's chock-full of flour too.
    Flour in red-eye gravy? Never. Grease and coffee. It is awesome.

    You take the dogs hiking to your fav "hidden" spot & the first thing you do if kick off your shoes & wiggle your toes in the heather.
    You then keep stalling heading back home cause youll have to put your shoes back on (Gorse bushes are not fun to walk through barefoot)

    You eye the ant crawling up your leg & wonder what it taste like (turns out there very citrusy-tart, kinda like lemon)

    When you envy your dogs ability to 4 wheel drive up the (very steep) hill...

    You dont even blink laying down £300 at the butchers (Hubby on the other hand makes some gosh awful choking noises LOL)
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    You awake from a nightmare about accidentally eating some potatoes in a yellow curry and panic that you'll have to start your Whole30 all over again!

    Do your homework. White potatoes aren't allowed on Whole30 plan.

    And don't be a jerk.
