    Unless the gluten free stuff was on sale, that's insane. I make gluten free pancakes when I have a yen for the them and the flour is definitely more expensive than real flour!

    Saw something that sums up CW the other day:
    An overweight woman, probably under 50 (based on how she dressed and her daughter's age), but with the body and face of a 60-year-old, walking with a stick, asking about what the vegetarian options are in McDonald's.

    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

    I'd apologize, but...

    McDonald's are supposed to introduce a "healthy" breakfast option of some egg McMuffin or something along those lines, and basically it has egg whites instead of the whole egg. McDonald's is doing this to attract the healthier crowd. Ironic that they are offering a healthier version, which removed the healthiest component (egg yolk) of the otherwise unhealthy item.

    A game I'm playing has me on a mission to craft pies. "Healthy flour is the best thing for building strength!"
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    Well these are dear friends who I don't want to alienate from myself; they all every one chose the one vegy option and I knew (having eaten there a couple of years ago pre-primal) that it would be very clean and nutritious food. So I was happy to make that choice. I din't feel I was neglecting my health by eating roasted vegetables with a glass of red wine in a quality French restaurant, do you think I was? This week I have had a good steak every day, is that not enough to atone for my sins?

    I care deeply what my friends think and I make many efforts and sacrifices to humour them - see Mark's post today.

    I only told you all the story so you could wonder about my "funny CW moment".

    I think you should be able to eat what you want, just like your friends. Would it be okay if a group of primal eaters and a vegetarian went to a restaurant and the group criticized and coerced the vegetarian into ordering a steak?

    Until you do it to someone who has kidney problems. And the person refuses to go anywhere with you again.
