Both of you are now on my Besties list
That rocks. Totally.
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!

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...
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.

This weekend was full of CW-ness..... Yikes:
#1 At a neighbor's house for a pot luck Saturday night. Conversation was surrounding a couple of folks failures in making meatloaf. One lady stated her's was the best meatloaf because she ONLY uses 93% hamburger. Another neighbor (350 lbs) "That is the ONLY Hamburger you should eat!!" I thought to myself , "C'mon dude, you haven't eaten 93% HB n your life...." and then he begins to pontificate on how to lose weight. He has gained at least 100 pounds in the last 12 years I have known him. He spouted about the necessity for LOW fat and LOTS of grains for Carbs. I stated that I ate didn't eat any grains, processed food, sugar or alcohol in the past week and had lost almost 8 lbs. just by changing what I ate. I was told I need to do more research on diet before I began to give advise.... (Face/Table)
#2 On Sunday morning at Church, I run the Coffee Bar:
Another member who works with me asks about my VFFs. I explain the bene's and she proceeds to tell me that the foot MUST have the support of modern shoes. (She's a Phys. Ed. teacher and has been for 30 years. And that the only people who wear those are those people on that "Paleontologist diet".... LMAO!!!!!) Sh'e sad she has Plantar's Faceitis (sp) and it won't go away. I told her I used to have it as well, but these VFF's put a halt to it, along with proper retraining on how to walk/run and stretch.
I said it was funny that she mentioned the (haha) Paleontologist (giggle) diet.... And that I was eating Primally. "Oh, you're eating RAW stuff!!" Nope, Real food!! Eggs/Bacon/meat/Veggies, No grains/Processed foods/sugar, etc... "Where's your Carbs coming?" :-o Uh Veggies. Guess what?? We're WRONG!!! and she's a Phys. Ed. teacher, so she knows the truth!!! (face/counter)
A lady and her Granddaughter came to the coffee bar.
Me: What can I get for you Ladies?
Lady digging in her purse for $$, say to her G.D.: Don't order anything that is gonna make you bounce off the walls!! Get yourself a Smoothie or something.
Me: (bite my tongue thinking, does she have ANY idea how much sugar and CRAP is in our Smoothie mix?? Yikes!!)
G.D.: I'll have a Mocha Frappuccino with Whipped Cream(fake) and Chocolate and Carmel Sauce on top.
Lady: Oh that'll be just fine....
Me: (face/Counter) again. Headache.....
Second of all, I absolutely ABHOR the whole "authority means I'm right and you're a crazy whackjob" mentality when it comes to fitness/nutrition. Yes, authority usually results in a person being more knowledgeable... but some people refuse to have an open mind.
I had a friend-of-a-friend at my university who was majoring in nutrition try to teach me some points... Here were her biggest offenders [and my counterpoints in brackets]...
1. Fat is inherently harder for the body to break down [well, it has over 2x many calories, but that doesn't make it necessarily harder to break down so to speak]
2. Saturated fat is bad [wait, so you're telling me naturally occurring products like beef and coconut are bad?]
3. Eating over 3500 calories a day is horrible! That's like a pound of food! [At 6'2'' and 210 pounds and 4x a week lifting + sprinting, I need about that much just to maintain weight!]
4. Lifting on an empty stomach will break down your muscles! [Yeah, but that's the point of lifting... the muscles get repaired and stronger than before when I polish off six eggs and some bacon post-workout.]
... I got nowhere in the argument and ended up not overstepping my boundaries in order to preserve my relationship with our mutual friend. But what do I know? I'm just some whackjob who cherry-picks articles on the internet. That girl, the nutrition major, had multiple classes! She had textbooks and instruction! She has to be right!
