I was visiting my parents today when my dad came in with a big bag of what he called "goodies" from the Mrs. Bairds day old bakery store.
Me: Daddy I thought momma said your doctor told you to go off grains [several months ago, because of diverticulitis]
Him: Well they did but then I had a colonoscopy they said I didn't have diverticulitis since they had removed my colon in that surgery.
My Mom: (excitedly) so we went back!
I then watched them have a lunch of whole wheat (it must be healthy they think) English muffins toasted in margarine, smeared with honey and peanut butter (fresh ground at least) and washed down with skim milk. Ugh. Then after that my dad opened a little packet of snicker doodle mini muffins. 😒🍞 whatever.
Healthy is the new wealthy.
LOL, and probably since she saw a nice, hot, shirtless guy working out, she'll be back. A lot. Fit people who aren't assholes are great motivation to work out.Was out doing all manner of sprints on the football field by my place early this morning (shirtless, barefoot, of course), and a hefty lady came out and walked 5 or 6 laps around the track at a slow pace. And instead of thinking "Ugh, look at that heavy lady not even pushing herself physically!" I thought, "Hey, look at that lady getting her slow moving in first thing in the morning. Way to go!"
Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!
Reverse CW story:
I'm at the in-laws farm. Used to be a dairy farm, now has been shifted to sheep-cheese production. No one is primal or paleo, but they all eat pretty traditionally. This week a bunch of people are coming and going, and bringing food to help out.
Today my mother-in-law opened the fridge. "Who bought the fat-free cottage cheese?!?" she exclaims. "Uggghhh! I guess we can feed it to the pigs."
My wife starts laughing at her comment, then grabs it and starts reading the label. "No, we don't want to give this to the pigs. Propylene glycol isn't anything we want anything to eat."
It was later determined that someone must have mistakenly grabbed the fat-free cottage cheese at the store, rather than the full-fat kind.

In what world can cool whip be considered good for you? My mom brings her signature desert to the family bbq last night and it is cool whip, jello powder, fruit bits and extra sugar. I told her I cant/shouldn't/wont eat it and she knows I wont but since it was lactose free she thought it was ok.
Read the damn ingredients woman! What part of it is food? Arrggghhh then she gets pissed at me for insulting her food. 78 years old, cant walk, neither of them as their legs and ankles are so swollen and arthritic, they have both had cancer multiple times and are decrepifying before our eyes.
I hate having to spend time with them, I always end up with a bad case of the angries and cant sleep after and and and arghhhhh.
She really thinks it is good for you since Kraft would not sell it if it wasn't. I have been eating this way all my life she says.. yeah and look at you now. The rinsed out the good sauerkraut I brought, and then cooked it since it wasn't pasteurized???? I had no idea they were cooking it, I was outside with the kids. Then I get weird comments about where I found the lousy sauerkraut?

I was at the grocery store checkout, waiting impatiently behind this lady because I was only there to buy one thing. She was purchasing literally 50 frozen Lean Cuisines, I watched the checker scan them one by one and lost count. She was also probably somewhere at the cusp between overweight and obese. Stocking up on a week's worth of 300 calorie meals. Just makes me sad that people think they are making good choices by buying frozen pasta marketed as "healthy," and it's really not doing them any good.
Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6

26lbs lost since cutting the crap.
