I was browsing the internet for a paleo picture and I came across a picture of a funny bread, and turned out to be almond butter bread. I was intrigued even though I never have the wanting to make or utilize bread in any way in my meals. But then I started to read the blog post from the guy (cookingcaveman.com) that posted the picture. It was quite funny and helps us all remember that you just need to stay strong when it comes time to attend social events with friends or family.
“Yesterday I went to a barbecue pool party, and some old friends who haven’t seen me in a bathing suit for many years, marveled at how young and fit I look. The first part of the party was a caveman compliment fest! Then the food came. I grilled my own grass-fed burger, and brought my own homemade thousand island dressing, red onion, and a homemade caraway seed bun made from almond butter bread. The mocking started pretty mildly at first. ”Oh, you’re making a sticks and twigs burger?” ”Is that grass-fed bread too?” But by the end of the meal, it was belligerent.”
This is a tough situation and it’s so important to remember that your hunter-gatherer lifestyle is nourishing, delicious and satisfying. The first point people will make to you is, “You only live once. Why don’t you live a little?” People are getting busy accepting sickness over wellness. It’s cool if you like arthritis or love digestion issues of sorts. But, I’d rather have an egg chorizo scramble without arthritis than a bagel with arthritis.
Look forward to tomorrow’s post regarding a Celebration of Food!
