I wonder if convenience has something to do with it.
I don't know about anyone else, but I have to spend hours and hours preparing ALL my meals from scratch. AAAND, you can't really eat primal food out-of-hand. Look at all of Mark's recipes -- they are all real sit-down saucy meals that you have to put on a plate and use a fork and spoon, usually eaten during a defined meal time. It's not easy to eat this way if you're constantly chafeurring kids or running errands. That's why convenience food was invented.
Sometimes I really miss the days of being able to just grab something at the checkout or dip into a box of Triscuits in from the of the TV. Doesn't seem to matter if it's carby or not. I'd be eating bags of macadamias or beef jerky if it didn't cost so dang much.
