    Yeah me to, though I try to keep it simple and say things that most people wouldn't object to...trying to cut down on the sugar I eat, grains don't agree with me, etc. Thankfully (HA, who'd a thunk I'd ever be saying THAT) I DO have Celiac, so I can use that one, lol.

    I put butter in my coffee when I run out of half and half. Mine's not really bullet proof though because I only put in about a half to three quarters of a tblsp. Over doing either carbs or fats can lead me to be hungry. Protein seems to be my appetite suppressant of choice, and most protein comes with some fat.

    And there I was hoping this would be a thread about 'I fantasise that I live somewhere where warm sunshine wakes me in the morning; I fantasise about getting free bacon' sort of stuff.
    My primal fantasy would be to not have to have to take so much time to find healthy foods. A Primal Walmart type store would be awesome. No factory foods, all organic produce, etc.

    When I think about butter in coffee I think of oily globules floating on the surface and it tasting like coffee-flavoured oil. :X

    Please tell me I'm wrong!

    You are wrong. I whip mine up with one of those battery operated milk frothers and when it's whipped up it tastes just like cream. I do this because besides gluten, I also have an issue with casein, but for some reason butter seems to be okay, while cream sometimes does make me sick.

    I have to admit to kinda loving my version of bulletproof coffee...steovetop espress + coconut oil (sometimes butter but rare) + egg yolk + cinnamon/cocoa powder. whipped up with my handheld blender that is the bomb! frothy and creamy, it keeps me going til lunch then i get a good dose of good fat and nutrients in the yolk.

    That is always what I think of, which is why I haven't tried it. I guess I missed the memo about BLENDING it... not just dumping it in.

    I might be tempted to try this. Mom bought me a little smoothie maker for christmas and I stored it away in the midst of my sister having her baby crisis. I need to find it.

    One of the most frequent comments I get when I do tell someone I eat primal/paleo is "Oh that's one of those low carb things." Well, yes, it can be for some, but that's not what's it's supposed to be about. Who knows how that misinterpretation even started. Another misinterpretation I think a lot of people have is that it's just a weight loss diet.

    Ditto...



    Zeera, it's well ingrained in us (haha, see what I did there) that we need to eat breads for the whole grains and carbs, and it's been a staple of our diets for so long, that people don't understand why anyone would cut it out unless you're intolerant (poor thing!) or trying to lose weight (wack job!)

    Yeah, the misconceptions non-paleos have about paleo, if they even know what it is, are even further out there. Earlier today someone forwarded me another link talking about how they thought the paleo diet was a "joke" when they first heard about it, then went on to try and debunk it while clearly showing no understanding of what the paleo diet actually is.

    Most of the time I just tell people I'm allergic to wheat or soy. For the totally uninitiated I usually just tell people "I eat lean meats, fruits, and vegetables; I don't eat grains, soy, and processed foods." Sometimes just going with the specifics helps get out of the trap of abstract ideas like "paleo" or "primal." Trying to explain things like o3 : o6 ratios, etc. to people who've never heard any of this before is just TMI.

    It has next to no chocolate in it.
