Caveman Q&A

blissmanifesto said: Well, if it’s not fun anymore, whyn’tcha just confine yourself to the steak-and-broccoli or the salmon-and-spinach type things? Quit stuffing all that crap in your piehole; you’ll feel better.

Excellent question!  The answer: Because deep down inside, I’m a lazy fat bastard.  I also feel the ridiculous obligation of eating this food while I’m in NY because I have no idea when I’ll be back.  But it’s silly, because I feel like shit.  Sometimes, even though we know things are horrible for us, we’re helpless to save ourselves from ourselves.

Like yesterday’s lunch on the 2012 NY Cheating Eating Tour, the matzoh ball soup I had from the Edison Cafe (best matzoh ball soup in the city, but my photo didn’t come out), or the linguini and clam sauce I had last night, (completely forgot to take photos).  I certainly didn’t need either after all this cheating I’ve already done, but the friends and family I’m visiting aren’t looking to find organic places for me to try, they want to meet me at the places I turned them on to all those years ago when I was a NY foodie (aka fat bastard).

I know from personal experience, I need to avoid the temptation by eating paleo at home as much as possible.  The caveman flesh is weak sometimes.

But right now, you’ll be happy to know I’m hard boiling some organic eggs, and making a little organic salad (can’t remember the last organic veggie I’ve had).  I have a big cheat meal planned tonight and tomorrow night, so I want to graze on something good during the next few days, to avoid cheating breakfast, lunch, AND dinner!  Sort of like Stage One of the Caveman Power Diet, when I first went paleo.

Okay, here’s one pic of the matzoh ball soup, but it was already started, and the matzoh ball was broken up.  Also in the background is an open face Reuben my cousin had (I had a bite, and it was friggin’ great!).
