Ever since I became primal I have literally fantasized about opening up my own primal fast food chain or living in a utopian society where the McDonald’s on every corner was replaced with some hip primal bistro with a drive through.  Wouldn’t that be awesome?  The fast food options that we have available now serve [...]

As I mentioned in the first post of this series, I got pretty ill for a while after going primal.  I felt so sick and tired that there were a few seriously close calls where I almost quit.  Of course at this point in my life, the last thing I wanted was to feel was [...]

My transition from the Standard American Diet to living primally has been met with many challenges.  When I first decided to make this change I became very ill and it almost forced me to give up my pursuit of this lifestyle.  I also had to figure out how to deal with social events, new ways [...]

SwissChard

In the summertime, one of my favorite backyard garden veggies is Swiss chard.  Not only is it delicious but it’s also beautiful to look at with its bright red stalks and dark green leaves.  Most of the time I sauté my greens with a little butter or olive oil, but it’s good to have a [...]

ZuchRibbons

Before I became Primal, pasta was a common factor in a lot of my meals.  I’m Italian and so I was raised with an abundance of the stuff.  It was difficult for me to let go.  After all, what would I serve my fabulous sauces over?  What about my fettuccini alfredo?  I realized that it [...]

It’s almost May and that means summer is right around the corner.  We live in Arizona and that means we sometimes hit triple digits before May.  This weekend we got a sneak peak of hot weather and some early pool time.  Playing in the water with my kids, soaking up the sun and listening to [...]

We’ve all heard it before on the news, in magazines and from our doctors.  Sugar is bad for your health.  But do we really understand the extent of this statement?  When I have conversations with people about avoiding sugar, I’m often met with the assumption that cutting out the occasional soda or piece of cake [...]

Spinach is one of my favorite vegetables because it is so versatile and delicious.  As a bonus, spinach is a super food that is packed full of vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, folate, calcium and protein.  I guess it’s no surprise that Popeye loved it so much…right? This simple dish only has four ingredients but [...]
