    Damn, his meal was almost primal too!

    Yeah...
    And then I never watched that show again.
    (That was actually quite a while back... re-run?)
    Stupid people.

    And I used to enjoy watching a few of the cooking shows.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    He was almost doing straight primal cooking with his meal too! How cool would it have been if he won?

    If you get Create-TV, which is a PBS channel, then you can watch Primal Grill.

    It's not really primal like we use the word, but he basically cooks meat outdoors using traditional methods from all over the world, going pretty far back in time. So the reality is that it comes out our version of primal 90% of the time.

    My favorite was when he cooked lamb on a shovel over an open fire pit dug into the ground.

    It took me a bit of googling, but I believe it was David Guas.

    A meal does not have to contain a starch to be a complete meal. However, in American restaurants, typical meals are usually not considered "complete" on menus without a starch - typically a side of pasta or two vegetables, one almost always being a baked potato, mashed potatoes or french fries. It's a cooking show, so in the context of a restaurant kitchen, it makes sense. Most Americans do not consider a meal complete without a starch, and most restaurants cater to "most" Americans.

    I'd have been chopped for the last meal I cooked. I roasted a pork loin and made ratatouille. I rarely cook a starch.
