    Sometimes priorities need to be set.
    Imagine how many crock pot dinners could be prepped in the morning in the time it takes to go through drive thru line up for their grande nonfat soy latte.

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    Oh, I agree with this and we did our share of lunches with the team (okay, maybe twice) but my daughter did go out
    with her teammates on other occasions when there was carpooling involved.
    The "fast food" part is the problem. Real sit down restaurants were out of the question, honestly I cannot tell you why except
    that maybe they take longer.
    I guess we do seem anti-social though during these moments. Next spring I will come up with a better plan.

I also like to reheat leftovers right on my plate so I don't have to wash a lot of pots and pans.

    maybe i'd do better if i cooked several days' worth at once, but i'm just not that kind of patient

    what can i say, i'm 'special'

    For me it's been this stuff. I just don't really like doing it. But I realized after giving it more thought that mostly I don't like following recipes. Luckily most of the stuff I eat with primal just needs to be baked or grilled or steamed or whatever, no real recipe involved. So I am cooking more and more. Always have tried to avoid most processed stuff anyway. Slowly as I get more practice I enjoy it more.
    Breathe. Move forward.

    I just eat what I want...

    After WW2, women started working more . As time went by, it was expected that they worked full time.
    Now there's no time for real cooking. So, it's pre-prepared foods.

    We are a slave to debt.

    The answere is moving back to a silver and gold based dollar. Lower prices. Real Food. Children being taken care of instead of shuttled off to daycare.

    Lets face it. If we move back to the 30's financially, we'd be better off and healthier. As long as we keep the antibotics for infections.

    We are slaves to debt.

    The best possible solution is to have every merchant accept whatever they want as money.

    The more difficult it is to tax, the better.

    I don't much like following recipes exactly either, which is probably why I like to cook but not to bake. I do like finding interesting flavor profiles/pairings though. So if I google something, I check out the recipes and jot down a few notes on the ingredients, then just go in the kitchen and mess around. I think of cooking as play. Sometimes it's just formula, but since starting Primal, I'm trying so many new foods that it really has become play.
