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 [...]

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 [...]

Need more evidence that the Standard American Diet is flat out BAD for you?  There’s a new documentary out that takes on 2 million years of evolutionary evidence to prove what humans need for optimal health.  It sheds some pretty unflattering light on the advent of agriculture and the inclusion of grains in the human [...]

So you’ve decided to take the Primal lifestyle plunge…but you’re having some difficulty trying to figure out what to pack for lunch.  This is a pretty common stumbling block for primal newbies.  After all, just the thought of lunch typically conjures up images of sandwiches and cheeseburgers.   Am I right?

Right now I’ve got a mess of greens growing like weeds in my garden.  When I start to get overwhelmed with them, this soup is a great way to use them up.  This is basically a primal variation of the Italian bean and swiss chard soup, although to be honest, I don’t really miss the [...]

Spend any amount of time in the paleo/primal blogosphere and you will quickly discover that there are two camps of thought regarding the use of dairy. I personally fall into the pro-dairy camp. I know that this is a big topic of discussion so I want to share my thoughts about it and why I [...]

Isn’t it funny how America’s long standing war on obesity has brought light to this major health epidemic but our country continues to get fatter and fatter?  I mean, just think about the last decade alone and all of the awareness campaigns, public service announcements, commercials, articles, documentaries, etc., etc. and yet instead of reversing [...]
