    I just can't believe that people would honestly purchase Lucky Charms and feed that to their kids as "part of a balanced breakfast" every morning. There are so many ingredients that I am allergic to, I cannot understand what ever made us brainwashed into thinking colorful marshmallows in addition to sugar coated crispy wheat cereal type things was okay to feed kids.

    I used to work at a grocery store, and we faced the shelves so that all the sugary cereals (Lucky Charms, Cookie Crisps, Fruit Loops) were on the 2nd and 3rd shelf. When I asked why, I was told it was so the kids would see it and cry for their parents to buy it for them, which meant better sales.

    I often chuckle when i unload my groceries on the conveyor. Bacon, sausage, pork roast, steaks, chicken, couple sweet potatoes and some veggies.
    Many times i have been asked if i am having a bbq and if so where is the sauce lol. i politely laugh and say that this is one weeks worth of my normal diet lol.

    The other day I passed through the register at Walmart with a pork shoulder, a 3# package of bacon ends and pieces, and a brisket as long as my arm.

    If only it wasn't socially unacceptable to holler this stuff at people as you walk through the shop. I'd be giving them all a thorough education!
    I'm allergic to dairy. I experiment with soy milk, coconut milk and almond milk in an effort to find something that tastes decent as a creamer in my coffee and that can be used as an alternative to milk in recipes that call for it. I didn't choose to develop an allergy to dairy and I'm not happy about it but I'd be even less happy if someone got all judgmental on my choice to use an alternative and started preaching to me about it.

    I am lactose intolerant, and through my "substitutions" I developed an allergy to soy. I now just either bite the bullet or pop a Lactaid with some real creamer.

    Stay away from soy (yes I'm prejudiced), it's chop full of nasty and doesn't contain much good. I like coconut milk and rice milk as far as milk substitutes. Rice milk because it tastes similar and has similar consistency to skim milk (which I was accustomed to pre-lactose-intolerance), and coconut milk because it is yummy and full of good stuff. I cannot vouch for almond milk, as I am allergic to almonds, and the last time I drank that my throat swelled up (which lead me into the doctor's office for an allergy test).

    As for people judging me, yeah, that happened a lot. Nobody understood why I wouldn't just buy a gallon of milk (I still don't, just the creamer), and I was even accused of faking it it couple of times by family members.

    But at the same time, I'd love to yell at all those acquaintances of mine who preach health food and Warrier Dash, yet they still buy wheat bread weekly, by the loaf...

    I've been dairy free for a few years in my past also - not allergic just tried to eliminate to free myself from chronic sinus infections and also when my breastfed baby had severe reflux. As far as I was aware soy is a bit of a primal no no? I've drunk soy milk (and rice milk) so I know it tastes like crap, not judging at all just sayin is all.

    I just don't see anyone anywhere wearing Vibrams, or shopping with a cart full of meat, veges and fruit........and I am happy to come over and slap this guy around Derp. In fact my palms are getting twitchy just thinking about it !!!!! LOL

    LL I am with you on the Soy milk stuff. I think it tastes horrid. I would rather go without any day.

    I would be judged by a few of you also, as DH just isn't on board with Gwamma......... so my trolley often contains lots of naughty nonsense !!!!!! gwamma loves naughty nonsense - but more of the alcohol kind !!!!!!!

    I do have a really funny "riding the trolley" story...........but praps I will leave it for another day.............

    But how did you catch on? I'm willing to bet you're misinformed about something regarding nutrition right now that someone else knows about and you have no clue. You're being just like those people. You're just acting on what you "know."

    If you're watching people's carts at the market and looking at them in disgust, sounds like you have some issues yourself.

    I try to avoid supermarkets as often as possible. Since going primal, I can see all too easily the gross means by which the store is trying to make profits with the junkiest junk right at the cashier area. All the dope (because anything you get totally hooked on is dope) is there (super sweet shit, unhealthily salty stuff cooked in rancid vegetable oil, pseudo-chocolate full of weirdo ingredients, energy drinks, sodas, etc - ALL right there and people, often kids, grabbing this crap as a last second impulsive buy).
