    I forgot to pick up my pastured eggs CSA. At least I know it would go to a good cause (my farm donates the food that is not picked up)
    If the laws of thermodynamics don't prevent you from doing it, then it is not impossible!!!

    I'm feeling deprived....by lack of hunger!

    I love food so much, always have. I used to snack, nibble and binge on whatever I wanted. This "waiting till I'm hungry to eat again" is trying my patience. I know there's a steak or a roasted chicken waiting for me, along with a tasty salad topped with avocado, eggs and bacon, or a chocolate coconut smoothie, or some roasted veg...I don't even crave the processed crap food anymore. I want bacon-wrapped whatever and I want it now. looking at primal food porn just pisses me off. There are not enough meal opportunities in this lifetime to try all the recipes I've bookmarked

    My friends go blank when they ask about eating primal. Then, after some seconds, I get the standard question: "so you don't drink beer?... What do you eat then?"
    I remember the first questions/requests I made at this Mexican shop by my folks' house: Do you cook your food in Lard? And I'll have the carne asada plate, no beans, rice, or tortillas. They asked me if I was sure, two or three times..

    Yep, I get the same thing at our local Mexican restaurant! Usually fajitas work for me, sometimes get a taco salad and just leave the fried tortilla bowl. But ALWAYS get the questions!

    Shopping is too quick now - i dont get to spend my free time reading the brightly coloured, beautiful packaging in the supermarket isles.

    An i no longer get to wash and recycle the plastic trays that supermarket meat comes in, and i miss teasing the dog with the bloody pad that they stick under the meat to soak up the watery blood

    And I don't get the exercise of walking up and down every aisle any more. One trip around the perimeter of the store and I get my butter, eggs, meat, and produce all in one loop. I guess I'll just have to spend more time walking outside in the fresh air and sunshine.

    I don't know what to do with all my butter knives. Now that I don't butter toast or make sandwiches, they never get used and are wasting my drawer space.

    I just had to exchange the smaller size jeans I bought for an even smaller size jean as the former were already baggy a week later when I got around to putting them on. Geez. The gas money and time it took. . .

    I still use mine for softer cuts of meat & to fish refrigerated bacon grease out of the jar (easier to put in the pan and the wider-than-a-steak-knife surface area works pretty well). I use it for butter into the pan sometimes too, since it's also refrigerated.
