    I'll try this one day.

    "I'm celiac, no thank you" works for me most of the time. But honestly, it's nobody's business anyhow. I'm not snarking on someone else for eating cake or drinking sugary drinks, so I would hope they'd return the courtesy.

    Burgers aren't a problem, but an easy solution for dogs and sausages is to use romaine lettuce leaves. Works just like a bun/wrap.

    They did a cookout at work on Friday, I had hamburgers with veggie toppings and lettuce "buns." No one gave me looks, but most people there know I have food intolerances/allergies anyway. I have a bit of a built-in excuse with my fibromyalgia, too. Given my druthers, I'd take the weird looks and fiber queries. Sleeping for twelve hours a day for two weeks after getting hit with a summer cold sucks balls.

    It's not like your average white-bread hamburger or hotdog bun is exactly a high-fibre food source anyhow.

    Had a small barbecue here, Steaks, shrimp, squash and mushrooms. To hell with the ground meats and buns. I won't partake in hotdogs unless I make them myself (it's easy and you can tailor them).

    I was at a restaurant earlier and ordered a a turkey burger without the bun, without missing a beat the server says, want it protein style? I was like... huh? "They'll wrap it in lettuce so you can still pick it up!"

    Hey sweet, that's awesome! My left thumb is burnt.

    I've found the gluten intolerance statement kills questions, and gets people super concerned, "Are you sure you can eat here? We have wheat in the kitchen!" Heh, awesome.

    Grilled burgers tonight (in a light drizzle...thankfully it didn't pour) and had mine naked. To clarify: the burgers were naked, not me. lol

    If you don't make a big deal and try to explain paleo and convert everyone, no one will care. People are not that interested unless you put yourself out there as a weirdo or holier than thou type.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
