    Basically he's asking "can I improve my diet but be more flexible in my approach". Of course he can, some people do better on a moderate less restrictive approach long term or prefer to ease into things. Just try to make the substitutions as much as you can. Eg, swap out soybean oil for olive/coconut/butter and cook yourself meals instead of sandwiches when possible. Making small diet changes for the better > making no diet changes. I encourage family to make small changes like having a cooked breakfast a few times a week instead of cereal and cutting out flavored juice and it has helped them.

      Thanks for the recipe, it looks awesome
      I don't eat dairy though but it's listed as optional too.

        Don't put a label on it. No one is half pregnant or half vegie, if you don't intend to ditch grains etc, you are tweaking your diet or lifestyle but not really even trying to be primal. That being said, regardless of label, less grains is a good move.

          I was semi primal throughout the 2000s; I ate a ton of wild salmon, red meat, kefir, kale & berries but also continued to eat some oatmeal, sprouted wheat toast and towards the end a weekly serving of pizza so I could feel like I was "really living". Not worth it for many reasons, but now I don't eat grains because I can't digest them, they take too long to cook, aren't nutritious, cause weight gain & are full of PUFA.
          Read Mark's post on Why Grains Aren't Healthy- grains don't want to be eaten. You can be semi primal sure but your health won't improve that much and you will always have one thing or another wrong that bugs you.
