The Practical Conservative – Now With 35% More Oppression

The Practical Conservative

I was sitting there, minding my own business when my wife, your hostess here at The Practical Conservative, said to me, “White Oppressor, we need to help people make more babies on the Internet.”

Amusing misunderstandings ensued, but eventually it became clear that she was talking about advocating pro-natalist policies.  This seems like a noble goal, so here I am.  Multiply and replenish the earth y’all.

    Why bandy idle locutions when there is work to be done? 🙂
    BTW, saw you avoid gluten & cane sugar on prior post. Is this considered or an afterthought?

    1. Gluten and sugar free here due to Lyme (nearly symptom free since giving them up.) I eat raw honey and maple syrup on occasion, The rest of the family isn’t gluten free but I try to soak or sprout the grains.

      1. Thx for the reply.

        When you say “gluten free” do you mean no wheat flour at all, no white flour, or just no gluten adds to homemade whole wheat breads (sorry to be nosy, but I have learned a lot over the years by just asking dumb questions)? [For reference, to us “gluten free” first meant not adding gluten to homemade whole wheat bread, to then over time removing white flour adds to whole wheat flour, to then pretty much giving up most wheat except for pizza/pie crusts.]

        I try to soak or sprout the grains.
        Does this mean you grind your own wheat berries? Or am I missing something?

  2. Gluten free (for me) = no wheat or grains that contain gluten.

    For the rest of the family I grind my own wheat berries for sourdough or I sprout them. When family life becomes hectic (read newborn) I buy sprouted/sourdough bread.

    Preparing the grains is work so it certainly reduces our use of them. Maple Syrup and Raw honey are expensive so that also reduces our consumption of desserts, but when I do make them, they’re delicious.
