09172013- Primal Eating

Pyramid It's time to start thinking about how you will approach the Primal Challenge starting up next Monday. The most important thing to address for just about all of us will be nutrition. The Primal Challenge food pyramid above easily outlines what your meals should be looking like for 21 days. Try to make sure each meal has meat, fish, chicken or eggs and a lot of vegetables. From there add in some healthy fats like grass fed butter, coconut oil, avocados or olive oil. Eating meals that strongly focus on those three categories will leave you satiated and will be where you get most of your energy from. That also gives you a ton of ways to be creative in the kitchen. Salads, stir frys, omelettes are all fair game. Start to look up some Paleo/Primal Recipes. There are hundreds of sites around now to inspire you.

Still not sure what to eat, or think you will get bored eating this way? Check out the Robb Wolf's Paleo Food Matrix.

Also, start to make your way through the vast resource that is Mark's Daily Apple. You can start here: The Definitive Guide to the Primal Eating Plan.
