I was away for a week visiting the home land.
I think I consumed more bread in one week then I have in the past 3 years.
I did a lot of observing and thinking this past week in Holland. When it comes to paleo/primal/ef, there are probably only 2 handfuls of people in the whole country that have heard of it. (all you Dutchies reading…please correct me if I’m wrong)
The looks I got at my sisters house when I only ate the “Bolognese sauce” without spaghetti were priceless. No-one could really understand why I wouldn’t eat the pasta. My sisters oldest son did also try it my way of eating with salad and admitted that it was almost as tasty as with spaghetti. Small victories lead to success right?
I’m formulating my thoughts and notes from the past week, so I can hopefully write a concise post. Observations that lead me to some of my thoughts/ideas were as follows; the amount of overweight people I saw could be counted on my hands, people are in relatively good shape simply from the amount of walking and riding bikes, coffee is not drunk out of a large mug…maybe less problems/sensitivities for people that way, food is much much fresher, lots of msg and flavor enhancers are used, hemorrhoids are a huge national problem, protein portions are much much smaller and family/friends are an integral component of a happy life.
I will have my next post up before Friday, looking forward to getting some of your thoughts and input.
