    We Wish You a Cleaner Christmas...And a Primal New Year!

    Ah Christmas - the time of year when cookies and candy abound. Healthier snacks like clementines are a cute decoration, the exception instead of the rule. Next year, my resolution is going to be to live as primal as possible. In preparation for that, I'm challenging myself from today forward to take on the primal lifestyle once again. I did it during Lent with great success - lost 15lbs, woke up before my alarm clock every day, had a ton more energy.

    I'll try to post a food log every day to keep myself accountable. The biggest challenges for me are 1) eating enough good calories (preparing lunches for work is the hard one) 2) avoiding sweets

    12/1
    B - Apple, Banana, Coconut Milk with Shredded Nuts (Almond, Pecan, Coconut, Flaxseed)
    S - Carrots, Apple Slices, Almond Butter, Small Candy Cane (like I said - sweet tooth)
    L - Butternut Squash Soup, Apple Pie Larabar

    Welcome! Mind if I tag along to see how you are doing?

    Just remember this, don't beat yourself up if you backslide. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and continue in the right direction once again.

    Got something else for you to try.

    Get some unsweetened coconut flakes and toast them in the oven. Oh, my! I can even see having a bowl of these with heavy cream for breakfast!!

    Looks like you are heavy to fruits and light on veggies. See if you can find a way to switch it up.

    Too cool that you are in Seattle. I was raised in Bothell and now live in Aberdeen!
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
