I can't even imagine taking a sip of coke. Or eating a chocolate bar (though I'm happy to eat good choocolate). Or borekas, which is common where I live (a white flour and margarine delight). Or all sorts of ready-made processed food from the supermarket.
It's not that I don't have my cheats, but there are things I don't think I'll eat as long as I live - even as a cheat. I see them as toxic, so why would I eat them?
What about you?
Non-dairy creamer, powdered or liquid!! Sugar, corn syrup solids, hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors, and it still tastes just nasty!
Blech, blech, blech.
I actually like eating non paleo foods from time to time. It helps remind me of how bad they are for me when i get sick after eating them. Anytime I have alot of gluten or any processed foods or high sugar foods...I get physcially ill and run back to Paleo land : )
There is absolutely nothing non-paleo that I will never eat again. The paleo Lifestyle is not about deprivation it is about making the healthiest possible choices. Having said that I have free will to choose what I put in my mouth, if I choose to eat some cake or bread, pizza, etc I do so without feeling guilty, I may suffer the consequences but I accept those.
I will never eat bread again. I've [finally] stopped craving it and besides, it's just a carrier for the yummy stuff inbetwixt*, anyway. Gluten backs me up anyway (while simultaneously giving me diarrhea -- it's the gift that keeps on giving, that gluten 'tis!), so meh. I'll abstain from it and my IBS will thank me.
I'll never touch anything soy-based, either. My belly swells up within minutes and I get spots and my period starts to get wonky if I eat too much (as I learned when I was a newbie veggie a few years back). Plus, I have yet to taste anything soy-based that actually tastes a fraction as good as what it's trying to emulate. Ew.
*That word reminds me, I'll never eat a Twix or a Kit-Kat again, either. =P
Never say never.
I will never eat things like pizza or apple fritters without knowing for certain how horrible they are for me. I probably will still eat them eventually because they are delicious!
Don't let perfect be the enemy of good.
fake sugar! aspartame et. al. ive always hated it and the gross metallic aftertaste, but tolerated it because i thought it was healthier than sugar, and i could eat sweet-tasting things without the calories. NEVER. AGAIN. i finally got permission to not eat that crap. i would much rather eat real sugar infrequently than the fake stuff all the time.
I am most definitely in the "never say never" camp with the one exception of non-pastured animal products. I consider CAFO meat and poultry products to be decidedly non-paleo and I will no longer participate in this atrocious system. I'm already headed to wild-caught pescatarian status as it is (cause I want to be just like Aravind when I grow up.) I'll go vegetarian before I eat CAFO anything again and apparently you can't be paleo vegetarian (as I learned at AHS-insert eye-rolling here) so if CAFO were to become my only option I guess I'd leave paleo and just do the best I could.
Otherwise I am game for anything. Never again never worked for me for many reasons and I just can't be successful barring any food from my possibilities. I do have to use this option wisely and think I have so far.
There are several things I will never eat again- even if I crave these things, I'll resist all too easily if I get any closer to them. They range from bread to chocolates, pizza to mashed potatoes. As for fizzy drinks (coca cola, pepsi etc), I'm completely over them and don't feel a craving for them at all. I guess that one is history for sure.
