Update: would believe they sell those 2,40€ each? Guess they're pretty prized.

Anyways, I first attempted to rip and eat each leaf individually, but I found it much more enjoyable to just dip the whole tip of the flower then bite it off.

Outer leaves are very fibrous, so I had to spit them out, whereas the inner ones were so soft I could just swallow them after a few bites.
I ate the head's insides just fine, while the stem was too bitter to eat.

I'd say it was worth the two and a half euros.

BUT... open relationships are as paleo as you can get.

As I understand it, wine (and therefore also wine vinegar) is produced by stirring the mixture very frequently. That encourages yeast to form. Yeast are tiny organisms that won't be disturbed by stirring. Mold on the other hand likes to form large structures that get broken up when you stir. Therefore, if you don't stir, you get mold rather than yeast, and mold doesn't seem to produce the same alcohols that yeast does. And it creates a particular taste of it's own, which most people don't like in their wine, so they avoid it by stirring the mixture.

Huh. I've been making "mead" at home by mixing honey and water and I did notice small white bodies which would disappear upon stirring.

In Italy it's quite normal to eat raw or boiled vegetables dipped in olive oil - "a pinzimonio". I think I do recall eating a raw artichoke this way. I'll make a trip to the organic shop and try it out.

I guess I come from group 3.

First I went Paleo because I read very persuasive arguments on the internet, and saw big improvements (less sleepy in the morning, less anxiety, less mucus).
And since I already considered cooking as something to keep at a minimum to avoid carcinogens and loss of nutrients (rare chicken, anyone?  -d), after a few months on Paleo, I told myself, "why not go all the way in?".

Converting someone is nearly impossible, because one's mind will always be able to find motivations to justify whichever their alignment is.

Things like "Cooking helped humans make a big evolutionary leap" and "Cavemen died at 30" are just examples of what one's can come up with to justify anti RPD positions.

Not to mention that it's humiliating. I feel like a door-to-door salesman if I try to make my mother drink wine instead of beer at a restaurant. Even if I succeed, it won't stick.

I think I'll just let facts speak for themselves.
My parents know I eat raw meat (and they tell everyone, describing me as the weird relative of the family), so my only hope is that while their health keeps deteriorating and mine improving, they might one day become desperate enough to try out a paleo, if not raw, diet.
And if they won't... fine, it's their choice to feel miserable all the time and eat addicting food rather than feeling healthy and eating real food.

Anyhow, I wouldn't date a vegan... spending time getting attached to somebody who is prone to extremism and political brainwashing, never mind that with my diet I'm already vegan Satan, sounds like the recipe for disaster.
