New primal mom in Kansas City
Hello everyone! My name is Kim, I'm a wife and mom of 3 in Kansas City. I've found my comfort zone in the modern world thanks to the primal way of life. I'm not 100%, but working on it. My health has to be top notch, I want to be around to see my babies through everything!
I took advantage of Mark's offer of the free PB audiobook with his new cookbook and I just love it. Thought I'd check out this forum to find answers and fill in some gaps. I'm going to submit a request for a Mark's Daily Apple topic, but wanted to introduce myself first.
Your location: Kansas City, Missouri...grass-fed beef wonderland!
Age (If you want):39
How Primal are you: Finally got validation for going barefoot all the time...as for eating, I'm completely off of processed foods, fast foods, grains, and only use sugars such as maple sugar, honey, sucanat in moderation...and the only thing I really grasp onto it is...*see next question!
Do you consume dairy: Raw milk and homemade kefir, cutting back on yogurt...love goat cheese! I eat way more dairy that I think I should, I have no problem digesting it, but I want to trade it for something completely primal. Working on it. :)
Do you drink coffee or tea: Daily, sometimes double daily!...but just decided to cut it in half, to see if I can "wean" from my organic coffee with heavy raw cream...and drink more green tea.
Motivator for switching to Primal: Babies. I couldn't keep up with my toddler, and I was tired of being a chunkster. I also despise getting the cold and flu...living primally is the best defense.
Favorite exercise: My toddler and I "stalk" each other. I'll turn around to see her sneaking up on me, and then we attack each other and it escalates into a chase around the house.
Favorite Primal food: Bacon
Best part about being Primal: Snagging all the size 6 skirts from people who can no longer wear them because they eat too many muffins...
Worst part about being Primal: Dealing with people who think treating my kids means buying them donuts...and, thinking about all the years I spent wearing a size 16....ahhhg!!
