Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I have to admit…I hate salads. I’ll sit down and eat half of a cucumber and a cup of cherry tomatoes. I’ll eat a handful of baby cut carrots and kohlrabi like an apple.

    I’ll eat a pound of asparagus. (sorry, this is prompted by your link (even though the title was sarcastic) at the bottom of the post.

    I love vegetables…I hate salad. Sorry.

  4. Well, I actually have problems with salads as well. I tend to have an allergic reaction in my throat whenever I consume uncooked fruits or vegetables. Now, as this is easily remedied by cooking, I think there must be some sort of protein that is denatured in the heat (and a super-cursory online exam confirms this) but that still doesn’t help me if I’m trying to eat a salad comprised of raw veggies.

    Any thoughts on what sort of things I can do to blunt or remove this effect? I’ve tried organic v. supermarket, and while it helps some (placebo?) the effect is still there. I’m especially interested in a method to break down the protein that doesn’t involve heat.
