I finally had a moment. This weekend I went to my husband's family reunion. It was a bunch of old people and their various diseases and CW beliefs. My husband's aunt brought a white grocery store Italian bread loaf and Olivio fake butter spread. She sat there and was raving over how good that sh*t was for you. 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
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.
