    Tell me about it.

    We have a family at our church whose little boy is six, but he's shorter and weighs less than my three year old. Now, their whole family is short, but the white bread isn't making him grow big and strong.....

    Me too!!! I am an EMT and the other night the rest of the crew (overweight men) wanted to go grab something for dinner. taco Bell. Really? I haven't walked into one in 7 years, or more. Nasty food. I couldn't eat it.

    So the other morning for shift I brought in a dozen of my own pastured eggs from my own chickens, a pound of pastured beef, mixed garden vegetables (summer and spaghetti squash, onions, mushrooms, and zucchini) fried in Cold churned Raw butter from Amish cows... made a huge scramble for the group - two paramedics, three EMTs, and the two live-ins. One of the live-ins, came in to the kitchen area, looked at the mess (it was bright yellow and looked odd, to say the least). I served him a plate and he said, "I can't eat that" and proceeded to get Panera bagels days old and canned soup and whatever other crap he usually eats...

    I feel sorry for the two live-ins. They are always eating crap and the one, Kris is nice and is struggling. So I left the left overs for her, which SHE at least was glad for. The other can pack sand.

    My nephew who is 3 eats a lot of crap too. He is big for his age and weighs about 45 lbs. He is solid, for now, but he eats macaroni and cheese several times a day, or ramen noodles, or cheese it crackers, Cheetos or a hot dog with either canned squirt cheese or mustard on it in a bun. He rarely eats anything else and his parents don't try to get him to try different foods to often. He goes to bed late at night and gets up very crabby. I don't feel I can say to much since he is not my child. Both his parents are struggling with their weight, especially my brother in law who is around 350 lbs. I am trying to get them to try Primal eating and hopefully get the ball rolling and hope they start getting my nephew eating better too.

    That's horrible even for CW standards. Disturbingly horrible. Poor kid.

    Star Trek Foods!!

    This is what I came up with after laying in bed for about half an hour:

    Appetizer:
    - Bajoran spring wine (mead)
    - Bajoran moba fruit with cheese (halved red pears -- fruit makes me hungry, I don't know about you guys)

    Main course:
    - blood wine (pinot noir)
    - roast targ (wild boar) over greens
    - gagh (shredded squash with some sort of sweet & spicy worcestershire-based marinade to make it brown)
    - plasma leek soup (turnip and leek soup)

    Dessert:
    - raktajino (bulletproof mexican mocha)
    - flourless dark chocolate cellular peptide cake - with mint frosting

    I think I may've just betrayed how much of a nerd I am...
    I'm sipping on a bulletproof Raktajino now (I used espresso and added hand-ground ceylon cinnamon, grated nutmeg, a dash of cayenne, coconut oil and butter. Added a tsp of raw honey. This helps me get through the rest of the day and energizes me for a round of playtime!) Last week I made Neelix's Paraka Wings (really spicy bbq wings sweetened with raw honey)

    I also made Andorian ale (white wine (Moscato) with a drop of blue natural food coloring), and Hasperat (soft goat cheese mixed with roasted and salted red, orange, green and yellow peppers and cayenne to taste since it's supposed to be spicy). I used to use a tortilla to make the Hasperat but now I use a thin omelet. And I made Rokeg Blood pie (polenta with a spicy tomato based shrimp stew but I don't eat cornmeal anymore so I'm looking for an alternative.

    Sweetheart, you are SO not alone in this! LOL!

    Actually, it was corn on the cob. But now I can't stop thinking about wrapping a banana in bacon and roasting it.
    That actually sounds like a great idea

    Stumbled across this.
    "The reason it is important to correct this misinformation is that many people are afraid to follow healthful, pure vegetarian diets—they worry about “incomplete proteins” from plant sources. A vegetarian diet based on any single one or combination of these unprocessed starches (eg, rice, corn, potatoes, beans), with the addition of vegetables and fruits, supplies all the protein, amino acids, essential fats, minerals, and vitamins (with the exception of vitamin B12) necessary for excellent health. To wrongly suggest that people need to eat animal protein for nutrients will encourage them to add foods that are known to contribute to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and many forms of cancer, to name just a few common problems."

    Wait, what about vitamin B12 then? I really don't have anything against vegetarians or their diet; I actually think that it can be a very healthy diet for some people so long as it's done intelligently ie: lots of high quality vitamins and fats from high quality eggs/dairy, insects, ferments, and lacking in antinutrients and fake foods. Nor I try to convert people who don't express interest, but this is just sad and terribly "misinformed." Talk about the dramatic irony...

    They can take a supplement? How many primal people take supplements?

    Oh. I am so there. I always thought spaghetti squash looked like gahk. Tamari sauce (fermented soy) or some other Primal brown would make it look wonderful. Blood ticks... crawdads? K'plah!
