I want photos in books because I love to have something to procrastinate with and food-porn is the best.
But I'm happy to make recipes from a picture-less set of instructions.
I rarely talk to people about Paleo/Primal, but, when I do, it's when they're NOT complaining about their weight or health.
You see, I don't really "do" pity. And one thing I've learned about people is that they're more open to suggestion when they're happy and stable. When they complain they only ever want pity, not to be advised.
