After seeing how much it changed his life and made him happier, I decided to find out more about primal living for myself. And decided to give it a 30 day shot.
Today marks my first official day living the primal lifestyle.
Wondering what this lifestyle entails? You can read more about it here. It's more than just changing the way you eat and the type of physical activity you do. The ten primal principles cover everything from sleep to sun exposure to stress management.
Throughout the next 30 days, I'll be documenting my experiences going primal. I thought today I'd start with sharing what my food intake was for the day. Part of the lifestyle entails cutting out all processed foods, grains, sugars and legumes. The diet emphasizes the importance of protein and natural fats in a diet.
Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled and raw blueberries
Lunch: salad with Salmon on top and balsamic vinaigrette dressing (without high fructose corn syrup!)
Dinner: Moroccan Chicken Casserole (recipe can be found here). Instead of using rice, a head of cauliflower is to be put through a food processor and the texture actually turns out very similar to rice!
At the end of the first day, I'm not hungry OR craving any grains...hopefully it stays this way!
Have any of you tried to go primal? How did it work out for you?
