She admired my homemade au gratin potatoes (real, milk, butter, cheese and gluten free) and asked how I got them to look so good and creamy. When I told her it was all the butter, cheese and milk she commented "that's why" and walked away with out any and went back to her bread and spread. I heard so many of them talking about their ailments and what they could not eat yet they stuffed their mouths with chips and crap. I wanted to get on the table, scream and kick the fake sh*tty butter and all the rest of the "health" food off it.

    Later this same aunt was talking to a couple other people who I was telling about the goats we raise (we had a couple kid goats there for the kids to pet). She went into a rant about how her brother (my father in law) raises GRASS FED, ORGANIC beef "even though he is not supposed to eat that terrible meat". Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Oh no we would not want him to eat this healthy meat but why don't we go over and hand him a slice of white bread and fake butter, that will make him better.

    Oh on and on it went. I made these amazing cheesecake brownies that were grain free, had coconut oil, coconut sugar, real eggs from my pastured hens, etc. People ooh and awwed over them until they found out what was in them then they looked scared to eat them. But they flocked over for grocery store cake.

    We do not even eat a perfect diet but oh my goodness I thought I was going to have seizures. I think I like staying in my nice little bubble at home. At least I don't have fantasies about kicking margarine into some old lady's face at home
    I think I cried a little.

    Chemical food bombs are the norm, and real food is the enemy. The world is crazy.

    Totally. I've looked at maps. They are like within inches of each other. In other map-based news apparently Alaska is floating by Hawaii down in the left hand corner somewhere.

    i want to eat at your house. Tho' your story did remind me of the time my vegetarian friend had made a lasagna dinner (years ago) and as I ranted and raved how I hated tofu, she smugly informed me that hers had no meat, just tofu. It would be curious if you didn't tell them what is in your food and only asked if they are allergic to anything as you hand them a delish spoonful, I wonder what would happen?

    To most of the world, a yankee is an American. To folks from the American south, a yankee is someone from the north. To someone from the north, a yankee is someone from New England. To New Englanders, a yankee is someone from Vermont. To folks from Vermont, a yankee is someone who eats apple pie for breakfast.

    My mom told me her recipe for apple crumble that uses mostly chopped nuts and a little gluten free flour. She is already a fair way primal and doesn't know it, although she would call it just good old upbringing and common sense.

    I don't know about that, I'm a transplanted Yank. I was born in VA, raised in MA, lived in RI and still have a house there. If I could, I would go back in a heartbeat. But hubby's born and raised in Nashville, TN. Guess I'm a quasi-Yank...
