"No fate but what we make"- Sarah Connor, Terminator 2
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Primal Battle Tome
I can't see any reason to repeat what people said. I just see carts piled high with boxes of frozen "food". No. That's not food.
M&Ms. My husband bought some peanut ones a few months ago. Tried a few, and the coating on them just tasted like chemicals. Gross. Much rather have a piece of fruit or some good dark chocolate.
Hot Pockets and Lean Pockets. Roomates and their bros always have these around. My eyes just glaze over them.
Sunny D and Hawaiian Punch as well. Great whopping jugs of it.
Things that are no longer food substances for me:
Halloween and Easter candy (very nasty tasting, all of it!)
canned drinks (teas, soda, lemonades...)
Nestle Chocolate Chips (nasty sweet!)
Store bought bread stuffs and chips
Most recipes for wheat-free or paleo bread replacements. They don't taste like my homemade bread did, and mostly are just kind of nasty, no matter how good the photo looks
Still have some cravings for and am searching or have found replacements or are part of my regular diet:
Chocolate (Lindt, 85% or more)
Pizza from time to time (but did find a good crust in the Wheat Belly Cookbook)
Chocolate truffles...the mouthfeel is so good with the dark chocolate
Tortillas - actual functional ones - still need a primal recipe!
Naan - from the Indian restaurant - not store bought.
Pancakes - primal style. I modified the tortilla recipe on MDA (added butter) and it makes a pancake that my non-primal husband thought was flour. (I did use lots of different types of flour in the past, to his credit.)
Maple Syrup - the real stuff, I still eat that. No more than once a week on above pancakes.
As for bacon, I treat it more like a cured hamIsn't it one and the same? Pork with some lean and fat stripes?I just view it as a sort of ham, rather than bacon
Agree totally about white chocolate, never could make myself believe that was edible, even before primal. Do they make it from margarine and sugar? And other "never ever" thing is soy meat. Or soy chocolate, yeee... Although I did use some soy yoghurt now and then.
After PB I stopped viewing bread as food. Basically its the very first processed food in history. I liked black rye bread, but after I moved from my country, I could not get it and gradually weaned off. The wheat bread wasn't too tasty anyway, was easy to stop eating. For a while I continued eating and liked oat poridge for breakfast but soon discovered that it tastes bad.
And soda drinks - well, now I can't understand how did I drink bathroom cleaning chemicals (thats what colas are good for).
