    How to set a good example without being THAT girl

    Primal Fuel
    At meetings at work we take turns providing snacks, and generally people bring homemade or store bought baked goods, cake on the rare occasion it's someone's birthday that week, etc.
    Last time I was up I just stopped and got doughnuts. This was before Primal.

    Well It'll be my turn again and I'm trying to think of something I could bring in that isn't mainly wheat and sugar, but that won't make my co-workers hate me. I don't want to be that sanctimonus person who brings tofurkey to Thanksgiving Dinner without being asked and gives everyone who doesn't try it the stink eye.
    However, it's kind of like people mentioning that they don't feel totally right donating all their processed food to charity. Who am I to say 'I got you guys this, but I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole"?
    I mean if I can't think of anything I'll just get pastries again, but I wondered if anyone had any ideas for Primal foods that won't seem weird to non-Primal people.

    Make something! The Civilized Caveman just posted a recipe today forscones. If you click around his site he has a lot of dessert-y items you could make and bring in.

    ETA: These cookies were a big hit with everyone in my office! Macadamia Nut Coconut Cookies | Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations

    What about something from Edible Arrangements? Fruit, both chocolate covered and plain, in fun decorative arrangements.

    Alternately you could try baking something at home, like lemon bars with an almond/coconut crust.

    Orrr what about an organic paleo version of lil smokies wrapped in bacon?

    Edible Arrangements is a good idea for a Primal treat that I'll keep in mind for future special occasions. However, it's too fancy for this (My "job" actually graduate school, and the meetings are of my department).

    The macadamia nut cookies look promising. I have some raw honey and it's a hell of a lot tastier than standard honey or white sugar. I'm doing VLC to lose weight right now so I just tried a very tiny bit on the end of a spoon to see what it was like and even that much was heavenly.

    Thanks guys!

    BTW: I hear that the banana bread recipe is killer too!

    What about bringing in a crockpot of chili? Or do a fruit and cheese tray?
