    Would you eat this ONE non primal meal under these conditions?

    All I am asking for is a yes or no answer in the poll I will make. You can add more if you want, of course.

    I see my grandmother once a year. She is 96 years old, and still cooks. For about 40 years, she has made me the exact same meal when we get together.... homemade lasagna. Hers is the best! And I have enjoyed it every time I have ever eaten it.

    Well, it is the time of year again, where we get together. And she wants to make lasagna.

    There is absolutely no way I could turn her down on this. She thinks I "live" for this day.

    So, under those circumstances would you eat a non primal meal?

    Your poll has too many options.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Yes, lasagna from grandma is the exception. Baked ziti also. Enjoy Grandma while you can. Its been 17 years and I still miss mine.

    I never pass on truly special meals - my mother has a few up her sleeve and I only visit her about once a year (we live in different countries), so I definitely plan to load up on the quark cookies, sour cream and black currant cake, and all her other specialties when I visit later this year. Some things are not worth passing on. Besides, really, we could wax poetic about how horrible wheat is for eternity, but reality is, unless you're a true celiac, one meal with wheat is not going to make you suddenly combust. People eat wheat daily and still live to 90+, so you're not gonna drop dead if you have some homemade lasagna.

    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    LOL, all I can say is this will be "bad".... she makes the lasagna AND makes bread from scratch, which she will use to make garlic bread.

    One weird thing she taught me - and she says this comes from her partial polish heritage - I ALWAYS eat a kosher pickle whenever I have anything with spaghetti sauce. And I LOVE it!

    You can't say no to Polish grandmas. Me and the BF visited his Polish grandma this summer, he hadn't seen her in twenty years. Needless to say, we had cake with breakfast everyday and more perogi than we could shake a stick at.

    HA!!!

    Polish women and pickles. Reminds me of my mama.

    Perogies come from God.

    Especially ones stuffed with cream cheese, potato, lots of cracked black pepper and onion.

    And smothered in bacon fat AND bacon.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    Oh god I miss perogies. With all of the above + sour cream. I sometimes make sweet potato hash browns with bacon and onions and eat them with sour cream, but just not the same. I someone could come up with an acceptable substitute. There's an E. European deli nearby that taunts me.

    I miss my mama's perogies.

    Nothing beats homemade.

    I *did* make them once...for Christmas Eve dinner. They were fucking epic. Lots of worth, but absolutely worth it.
