Had my own CW moment just now, as I was making my breakfast for tomorrow of fried rice. (rice/eggs) My roommate comes up to me as he's making his dinner and stares at the 4 eggs I have set out.
RM: Are you eating all those?
RM: All 4? With the yolks, or throwing them out?
Me: Nope, they'll be going in as well. That's what this little bowl is for! (I heat them separately and lightly)
RM: Wow. *Stares longingly at the eggs* Eggs are like my vice.
Me: Well, they're good for you! (Fully knowing where this is going)
RM: Me too, but I can only have one.
RM: I mean, they have 60% of your daily cholesterol! *chuckle*
Me: Ah right.
(I'm also trying to convince my 2nd roommate that eggs aren't bad for you and dietary cholesterol doesn't cause high cholesterol ... he's worried about his as it's "high" and is doing all the things that make me cry inside, like smart balance spread. After I told him, yes, i'm sure, and I eat 4 daily myself, it's making him go 'hmm')
Also..kind of a CW moment...last guy just left, he has an acute upper resp infection, has been sick since the end of Jan. Funny, or not, that's the same time his wife put him on a diet, yep you guessed it low fat, CW crap....and he is double mad cause he also get his flu shot this year. 2 *facepalms* with one comment.....AAHHHH!!!!! I had no words for him....just gonna be one of those Fridays.....
My dad (who is on cholesterol pills and is oh-so-scared of the way I eat) gives me so much crap when he sees me eating omelets made with 5-8 whole eggs in coconut oil. He (and a lot of other folks, including some friends my own age) like to imply that the fact that I have a have a 20-year-old metabolism is the only reason I can eat so much of that arterycloggingsaturatedfat and cholesterol.
I've tried to make it clear that I know what I'm doing. They've all seen me go from over 330 pounds to a relatively muscular 210 (lost 100 pounds from conventional wisdom/low kcals/cardio, leaned out when implementing info from Mark and this forum).
But nope. All my hard work and logical choices can be explained by 'magic metabolism'.
UGH... someone on my FB feed is posting PAMPERED CHEF recipes, which even when I was not primal I found to be nasty (lets put ranch dressing, and processed cheese on a can of pillsbury dough and call it pizza.
This morning they posted this:
You can't go wrong with a salad with this name, yum!
Snickers Caramel Apple Salad
6 regular size Snickers Candy Bar
6 apples I used Red Delicious... Granny Smith would also be great
1 (5 oz.) package Vanilla Instant Pudding dry, do not prepare
1/2 cup milk
1 (12 oz.) tub cool whip
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
Whisk vanilla pudding packet, 1/2 cup milk and cool whip together until well combined.
Chop up apples and Snickers.
Stir chopped apples and Snickers into pudding mixture.
Place in a large bowl and drizzle with caramel ice cream topping.
Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
It made my eggs come back up. Poor apples. What did they do to deserve a chemical bath? I posted that it was disgusting. People are addicted to crap.
Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!
^^made my teeth hurt reading the recipe

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
That just sounds disgusting. I (used to) like Snickers, I like apples. The rest just sounds nasty.
