Paleo on $100 a month day 21 - The 3 C's

Hmmm, not so paleo today, trouble with the 3-C's again.  I went to a potluck.  The "menu" was full of Carbs, Corn and Canola.

I am going to have to re-think my potluck strategy.  We used to have attendees who thought someone would starve, so they brought several dishes, enough for each person for each dish.  Those folks don't attend regularly anymore, and the place seems to be taken over by vegetarians and carbaholics.  Some of the meat-eaters started bringing their own dishes, from fast food places, but they weren't sharing. (I wouldn't want to eat crusted, fried meat anyway.)  One thing we can all agree on:  putting aspartame in milk without a label is BAD.

I brought a cucumber salad made with the persian cucumbers I purchased, red shiso, olives and rice vinegar from trader Felix.  Nobody ate much of it.

We also had berries and whipped cream, cornbread, lentils, salad and a custard dessert made with rosewater.  Carbfest for sure.

When I got in, I tore into the leftover braunschweiger and cheese, and finished most of it.

The rest of the day was just leftovers and grazing from the garden, no new purchases today.


  1. I almost always prefer my own food, and if I were in your shoes I would be overeating of all types of foods - wrong and good, gaining weight and developing different shit like mood problems, gums inflammation and redder face. From my perspective, you torture yourself for nothing. There are other ways to eat on $100 a month.

  2. Hmmm, "Carbs, Corn and Canola" definitely not good.
    However, your lamb burgers from the other day are very good.

    All the best Jan

  3. The 3 Big C's I'm afriad of: Calories, Carbs, and Cancer.

    Not so concerned about the first one since I'm easing up on the second one now. But the latter is always on my mind. Eh.

  4. cancer's no fun, but I used to think I was avoiding it by being vegetarian. Oh well.
