    The Winter IS Coming... Primal/Paleo so NOT in California....

    Primal Fuel
    Folks, please, share your strategies & substitutes for staying Primal/paleo in the long, dark and frigging cold months of winter. You know, when salad is the last thing you feel like?

    Obviously, soups and stews come to the fore-front...
    If you have enough snow, one can do cross-country instead of walking...
    And a steam room/pool daily is the must for me...

    I grill year-round here in Mini-apple-ish. Smoked fish, soups, stews, crockpot dishes, roasts, all good. I XC ski and play frequently with the kids in the snow. I think this winter I'll score some hockey skates and snowshoes.

    i make a lot of chili, but even here in new england i'll probably keep the grill handy. i generally make my chili on the stove top, so my slow cooker is always free for a stew or slow cooked chunk of meat.

    for exercise, cross country skiing is great. i snow shoe a lot, but that's really just because i feel like i can do more with those, and i still get a great workout. also, lots and lots of shoveling. i'm sort of looking forward to it, but i'll be sick of winter about a week in.

    I put my slow cookers to use more in the winter months.

    I love X-country, but there is no culture for X-country trails here in the City of Calgary, it's FRUSTRATING!!! They clear all the walkways in the parks! No X-country trail... They pretty much expect you to drive into the mountains & pay fees. WTF? Okay, my old country can be critiszed for soooo many things, but every tiny park or school yard had a dedicated ski trail in the winter, well used, and people who stomped on it in their boots were frowned upon.

    I use slow-cooker year-round

    Chili without beans is just not chili

    Chili with beans is just meh Anyways if you take the time to prepare the beans properly then you would be fine eating it on occasion imo.

    Yes, I know. I will probably make a batch of beans, and portion-freeze to have a chili every 2 weeks or so. Chili without beans is a stew.
