If you’ve read many of my posts, you probably know by now that I love to cook.  However, I am a busy Mom and sometimes I just don’t have time to prepare a perfectly paleo meal from scratch.  Occasionally I forget to defrost something for dinner, or we end up running late and get home [...]

T-Bone Steak on the Grill

I thought it would be fun to give you the highlights (in my opinion) of living a primal lifestyle.  People often want to know what the benefits and motivations are behind this choice of lifestyle so here are a few of my favorites.

Whenever I talk about the Primal diet with friends, coworkers, whoever happens to be listening at the time, we eventually get onto the topic of fat.  It often starts off with this question, “So what do you eat in a typical day?”  Usually I get as far as…”well, I usually start my day with a [...]

Stevia_plants

Recently I’ve been using stevia to replace the sugar in my morning coffee and the honey in my tea in an effort to further restrict my overall sugar intake.  I chose stevia because it is a natural substance that is recognizable to the body unlike Sweet & Low or Equal which is  manufactured in a [...]

There are quite a few challenges that we face as we transition to a primal lifestyle.  Some are physical challenges, some are social but I think one of the first things that people notice is the cost.  After all, our society places a lot of emphasis on cheap foods that are easily accessible.  This means [...]

ChorizoOmelet

A few weeks ago I went out to brunch with Daniel to one of the two grass-fed beef touting restaurants in the Carefree area.  We both ordered the most delicious chorizo omelet and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.  If you already know how to make an omelet, this is pretty easy to whip [...]

Nuts are a great snack to keep around and they are perfectly primal which of course is a bonus.  I keep air tight containers of a variety of nuts in our pantry.  They travel well so you can always stash a bag in your purse or car for those occasions when there are no primal/paleo [...]

QuaillEggs2

Sometimes it can be tough to see what’s going on underneath all those zucchini plant leaves, but my husband and I recently discovered the Quail family that has taken up residence in our squash patch.  I have netting around all of our garden beds to keep the birds out…go figure.  I had to lift up [...]

Psoriasis Sucks! Let’s face it.  If you have it, you know what I’m talking about.  Unfortunately I’m a long time veteran of this disease.  In fact it’s been 27 years since I was first diagnosed.  I didn’t realize it at the time (probably because I was 10), but that day marked the beginning of a [...]

Most people that are on the primal/paleo bandwagon have heard of CrossFit.  The two seem to go hand in hand.  I’m going to make an admission that I have not yet tried it, but, it’s becoming a topic of discussion in the Owen household.  My husband and I train with the same personal trainer and [...]
